Kim Kardashian’s Divorce Skewered On “Saturday Night Live”

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…

Anna Faris Knows What’s Wrong With Tanya On “SNL”

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…

Yay! Anna Faris Does “SNL” This Weekend

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]…

SNL Debuts The Li’l Poundcake HPV Vaccine Doll

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]…

Melissa McCarthy Knocks “SNL” Out Of The Park

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, the show’s cast. As the…

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,…

“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…

Quickies: Lady Gaga & Justin Timberlake On “SNL” Tomorrow! & Macho Man Randy Savage Dead

This is your unsolicited reminder that Lady Gaga and Justin Timberlake are on “Saturday Night Live” tomorrow night — she’s the musical guest, he’s the host. That is, if the world doesn’t end. You know, the whole Rapture thing. [Just Jared]
Oh and SPOILER ALERT! Here’s photographic proof that this weekend’s “SNL” will be…

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…

Today’s Lady News: Tina Fey & Jane Curtain Talk Sexism At “Saturday Night Live”

Oprah Winfrey invited the lovely Tina Fey, Jane Curtain, Tracy Morgan, Dana Carvey and Chevy Chase as guests for a show about “Saturday Night Live.” It turns out that John Belushi was a sexist jerk, his former co-star Jane Curtain revealed. “[Belushi] said, ‘Women are just fundamentally not funny,'” Curtain recalled. “He felt a…

Bristol Palin Was This Close To Being Tina Fey’s Baby Sitter

“I can’t imagine Bristol would have been too psyched to [babysit] anyway; it was her 18th birthday, she was in New York City, and I had made a vicious joke about her a week earlier. But I appreciated the mom-ness of Mrs. Palin’s offer … I thanked her, saying Alice was too little to stay…

Miley Cyrus Spoofs Justin Bieber On “Saturday Night Live”

Miley Cyrus hosting “Saturday Night Live” could have been a hot, steaming pile of Disney dog doo … but it turns out the girl is pretty funny! Not only did she sing about her little bong incident during her opening monologue, but the girl gets mad props for making fun of herself in Vanessa

Pretty Cool Miley Cyrus’ “SNL” Hosting Gig Will Be … Pretty Cool

Miley Cyrus is hosting “Saturday Night Live” this week with musical guests The Strokes and her previews hint at one of my favorite sketches ever, “The Miley Cyrus Show!” Hey, at least the girl doesn’t take herself too seriously, right? But really I hope there’s a skit addressing that video where’s she’s smoking

Does No One Care Chris Brown Is Performing On “Saturday Night Live”?

Chris Brown is hosting “Saturday Night Live” tomorrow night and no one cares.

I would have thought that, even after two years have passed since he beat the crap out of his then-girlfriend Rihanna, people would question “SNL”‘s decision. I would think there’d be more of a public uproar. I would have thought people…

Russell Brand Forgot The Funny In These “SNL” Promos

Yeesh. Usually Russell Brand is a little funny, but these promos for “Saturday Night Live,” which he is hosting this weekend, are just terrible. Maybe Russell was just nervous because the musical guest is Chris Brown (boooooo) who beat the crap out of his wife Katy Perry’s best friend Rihanna? That’s the only…

“Black Swan” Gets the “SNL” Treatment

It was inevitable that all the chatter about “Black Swan” would result in a “SNL” parody, and we’d trust Jim Carrey to do it. His fat, bloated black swan Lily is no match for prim white swan Nina. Oh, what sex appeal! [NBC]…

What Really Happened That “Weekend At Bernie’s”

So we love anything “Weekend at Bernie’s” related–and this parody from “Saturday Night Live” is no exception. This video shows what would probably really happen if two weird dudes tried to pass off a corpse as a real living person (chaos, mayhem and a lengthy court battle). [BuzzFeed]…

Is Cookie Monster The Next Betty White?

Cookie Monster wants to branch out and show that there is more to him than his enthusiasm for cookies. Homeboy wants to host “Saturday Night Live” and he wants us to help make his dream come true. Check out his audition tape. Um, he’s got my vote. I’m totally joining his Facebook group

The TSA: “It’s Our Business To Touch Yours”

One reason I’m grateful I don’t have to travel anywhere this holiday season is because I won’t have to deal with that new TSA pat-down policy in which some guy or gal in a uniform gets to fondle my junk in search of bombs and other fun terrorist-y stuff. “Saturday Night Live” did a…

Scarlett Johansson’s New “SNL” Promos

I’ve been pumped for this weekend’s “Saturday Night Live” since it was announced that Scarlett Johansson is hosting and Arcade Fire will be the musical guest. And the new promo, with Scarlett and Jason Sudeikis, gives me even higher expectations. This might be the best pairing ever.
