Besides having a mad crush on host Charlie Day, part of the reason I was so psyched for this weekend’s “Saturday Night Live” was I couldn’t wait to see how the show handled Kim Kardashian’s divorce announcement. And I was not disappointed. The show did not hold back in its takedown of Kim’s 72-day marriage in an “ad” for E!’s “Kim’s Fairytale Divorce.” From “Kim,” “Kourtney,” and “Khloe”‘s monotone Hollywood whine to Bruce Jenner’s overdone facelift to Kris Jenner’s desperate desire to be seen as one of the sisters, the skit was almost — almost — too mean. And then there was Kris Humphries’ … well … you’ll see. Just watch!
Whether you’re surrounded by suburban moms or you get your suburban mom fix from Lifetime’s signature “women in peril” made-for-TV movies, you had to love this “Saturday Night Live” skit about a game show called “What’s Wrong With Tanya?” Anna Faris, Kristen Wiig and Vanessa Bayer fretted and panicked over just what’s wrong with a precious daughter. Did Tanya give birth in the school bathroom during prom? Is she illiterate? So many things to worry about! And Bill Hader is extra-creepy as the stock dude-who-is-up-to-no-good. Oh, Lifetime, I love you. [NBC.com] Keep reading »
Anyone else convinced Anna Faris on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend is going to be baller? I, for one, am psyched to see her loopy-loo goofy girl humor go head to head with Kristen Wiig. Maybe if we’re lucky she’ll bring that hottie husband of hers, Chris Pratt, along for the ride, too. [NBC]
There was a lot to love when Melissa McCarthy hosted “Saturday Night Live” this weekend. But my fave was a sketch she wasn’t even in: the Li’l Poundcake HPV Vaccine Doll. It might beat Kristen Schaal’s bit on “The Daily Show” for best comedic send-up about the HPV vaccine panic. [Hulu]
