Kate McKinnon Makes Her “Saturday Night Live” Debut

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…

“Saturday Night Live” Adds Lady Cast Member Kate McKinnon

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…

SNL Introduces “The Real Housewives Of Disney”

Lindsay Lohan’s much buzzed about hosting gig on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend turned out to be a bit of a dud. The skits were weak and LiLo relied heavily on cue cards to remember her lines. There was one gem, however: “The Real Housewives Of Disney,” a spoof on the Bravo series. Watch the…

All Of Lindsay Lohan’s Totally Not Terrible “SNL” Promos

Well lookie here, it appears that Lindsay Lohan’s promos for her episode of “Saturday Night Live” aren’t looking so bad after all. This weekend will be her fourth time hosting, so she knows what she’s getting into, and supposedly has told producers that “nothing is off limits.” Hopefully they’ll be mildly kind (while still packing…

Maya Rudolph Kills It On “Saturday Night Live,” Justin Timberlake Nails Bon Iver Impression

Look, I am not one of those people who is nostalgic for the good ol’ days of “Saturday Night Live,” when the Coneheads and Pat were making everyone laugh. No, I like “SNL” now. But that doesn’t mean it always cracks me up. Usually I watch the show on Sunday mornings, with my coffee and…

How To Get Bros To Watch “Downton Abbey”: Put It On Spike TV

Dude, I know chick things suck, but did you know this “Downton Abbey” show has three totally bangable sisters and a MILF? And in season two they’re, like, firing guns and shit? Bro, you’ve gotta watch this show! (For the rest of us, don’t worry: this was just an “SNL” skit!) [Perez Hilton via NBC]…

“Saturday Night Live” Defends Lana Del Rey With Spoof

Weeks after her performance on “Saturday Night Live” was, well, universally loathed, Lana Del Rey returned to the show to defend herself … sorta. Kristin Wiig actually played the pop star — whose debut album, Born To Die, was released last week ant hit number one in the U.K. — in a “Weekend Update” segment…

Whitney Cummings Defends Lana Del Rey’s Right To Be A Human Being Who Makes Mistakes

The interwebsphere is a buzz with Lana Del Rey post SNL hatred. I just thought I would do something I never do and give my opinion on it. (irony)

I have many random thoughts. First, everybody calm down. It’s a little troubling that when a young girl fails at something that we kee…

A “Weekend Update” Reunion On “SNL”

Did you catch Jimmy Fallon hosting “Saturday Night Live” this weekend? I’m not the hugest Jimmy fan, but I thought he did a great job hosting — after all, he was a fulltime cast member for years. And he didn’t do it alone! It was a full blown reunion of past cast members, including Tina…

This Season’s Hottest Holiday Card Belongs To Stefon

Get a look at the holiday card sent out to some lucky recipients from the cast and crew of “Saturday Night Live” — it’s Norman Rockwell meets Stefon, “Weekend Update”‘s resident club kid! Seeing this gave me the gentle push I needed to spend 30 minutes watching Stefon skits on Hulu (four of which are…

“SNL” Knows That Sometimes, You Just Need A Good Cry

My favorite sketch from this weekend’s “Saturday Night Live” was definitely the one in which, one by one, a team of coworkers admits that when they need a good cry, they put on Adele’s “Someone Like You.” It’s true — I don’t think I can think of another song that makes my eyes moisten so…
