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]

There have been some good “Saturday Night Live” hosts (Zach Galifianakis, Jon Hamm) and some bad (January Jones). There have been far too many mediocre hosts to count. But count Melissa McCarthy among the rare celebrity hosts (like Justin Timberlake) that can actually hold her own among, and at times outshine,┬áthe show’s cast. As the host of SNL’s second show of the season, McCarthy nailed each and every sketch, from her opening monologue (above) which saw her “dancing” alongside “Bridesmaids” co-stars Kristin Wiig, to a skit in which she played a desperate-to-please taste tester at a focus group. Check out some of our favorite moments in the video clips above and then cross your fingers that she ends up hosting again, sooner rather than later!

Justin Timberlake Does What He Does (Second) Best On “Saturday Night Live”


When “SNL” was done cracking jokes about prison rape, this weekend’s season finale was the highest rated in seven years, thanks, mostly, to the star power of host Justin Timberlake and musical guest Lady Gaga. Listen, I want Justin to give up his acting aspirations and record a new album as much as anyone, but maybe he could get his acting fix by becoming a semi-regular cast member on “SNL”? He’s so good at it! Above, the hi-larious digital short featuring Justin and Andy Samberg’s “Dick in a Box” crooners singing about “3-Way (The Golden Rule),” in which a threesome with two guys “is not gay” so long as there’s a chick (a chola-licious Lady Gaga) in the middle. After the jump, two of my other favorite moments… Keep reading »

“Saturday Night Live” Opens With A Rape Joke

I have a sense of humor. I swear to God, I do. But, damn it, rape jokes are never funny.

Even though the opening skit of this weekend’s “Saturday Night Live” starred the only two black men in the cast as inmates at Rikers Island meeting accused sexual predator Dominique Strauss-Kahn (played by Taran Killiam), I was willing to go with it. Slightly racist casting there, but who knows, maybe they were the two cast members most enthusiastic about the material? Anyway, the skit was pretty funny: Keenan Thompson and Jay Pharoah played two guys locked in a cell bickering about the International Monetary Fund. I giggled a little, because it was silly. And then, at the end of the skit, Keenan says, “We’re going to rape you now.”

Miss Bossypants Herself To Host “SNL” This Weekend

Woo-hoo! Tina Fey is returning to her old stomping grounds, “Saturday Night Live,” this weekend. She will be hosting while Ellie Goulding, aka the chickadee who played the royal wedding, does the musical guest thing. “SNL” promos are never quite as funny as I want them to be, but still—just had to share these because we love Tina that much.
