This weekend’s “Saturday Night Live” was a bittersweet finale, as one of our favorite funny ladies, Kristen Wiig, said farewell to the show after being on the cast for seven years. While we can’t wait to see more of Kristen on the big screen — especially after she killed it in “Bridesmaids” — we will miss her hilarious “SNL” characters and impersonations. As we wish Kristen luck on her new chapter, let’s look back at some of the best lines from her ladies, like Surprise Party Sue, Target Lady, Kathie Lee Gifford, Penelope, and “Tan Mom” Patricia Krentcil.

Hate goodbyes? Total crybaby? Then prepare yourself, because Kristen Wiig’s “Saturday Night Live” send-off made this goodbye-hating crybaby bawl. Seriously, I cried harder watching this than I did at my own high school graduation — and “SNL” didn’t even use that “
125,600 525,600 Minutes” song from “Rent.” The only thing that takes the edge off Wiig’s departure is knowing that she’s off to do even greater things.

Maybe you love Andy Samberg and co.’s weekly “Saturday Night Live” Digital Shorts. Maybe you don’t. Either way, you have gotta watch this clip if only to catch Jon Hamm thrusting his pelvis in Justin Bieber’s teenage face.
Forget breakfast in bed or a new washing machine — what mom wants for Mother’s Day this year is some peace and quiet so she can read Fifty Shades of Grey and touch herself.
I’ve never questioned why there’s so much sex and nudity on HBO’s “Game of Thrones” — in fact, I wish there was more! But apparently, there are some people out there who find the abundance of fornication and naked titties to be a tad gratuitous. So “Saturday Night Live” went behind the scenes of the hit show – based on George R. R. Martin’s series of books — to find out why it’s so … horny.
This past weekend, new “Saturday Night Live” cast member Kate McKinnon made her debut, and by all accounts, was a hit. And that’s a good, especially since rumors persist that key lady cast member Kristin Wiig will be leaving at the end of this season. Here, McKinnon appears for a scant 30 seconds, doing a pitch-perfect impression of Bravo TV’s Tabitha Coffey. And after the jump, check out her impersonation of Penelope Cruz, appearing in a Pantene commercial with host Sofia Vergara. Enjoy! Keep reading »
Squee! Rumor has it “Saturday Night Live” has added a female cast member named Kate McKinnon and she is someone we already know and love around these parts! Kate starred in “Vag Magazine,” the kickass webseries that spoofed women who work at a feminist magazine, as the flaky girl Bethanny. Comedic Kate hails from the Upright Citizens Brigade, appeared on LOGO’s “The Big Gay Sketch Show” and has a movie coming out called “Hannah Has A Ho-Phase,” which sounds right up our alley. Deadline Hollywood reports that “SNL” head honcho Lorne Micheals has been auditioning several ladies for the show and Kate will debut next Saturday in the episode hosted by Sofia Vergara. The Mary Sue tells us that Kate is the first out lesbian to ever appear on the show and she’ll be the first openly gay cast member in 27 years. Mazel tov, Kate McKinnon — we’re a fan already.
