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.

Shy Ronnie 2: Ronnie & Clyde

This weekend’s “Saturday Night Live,” hosted by Jon Hamm, was basically a slam dunk. But my favorite part was the digital short where musical guest Rihanna played opposite Andy Samberg’s “Shy Ronnie” character. Ronnie really needs to exercise that voicebox. Uh-oh, boner alert!

Emma Stone And Andy Samberg Make Funnies

This week’s “Saturday Night Live” should be good. Not only is the musical guest Kings of Leon, whose new album we love, but the host is Emma Stone. This lady got her start on the VH1 reality series “In Search of the New Partridge Family.” And four short years later, she captured our heart…

Jane Lynch Bosses Fred Armisen Around

We’re unusually excited about this week’s “Saturday Night Live” since Jane Lynch is hosting. Our favorite cheerleading coach, Sue Sylvester, is sure to shake the lameness out of “SNL” if these hilarious promos with Fred Armisen are any indication. [Best Week Ever]…

“SNL” Spoofs Miley Cyrus

Aside from Kanye’s kick ass performances and a solid opening monologue from the criminally underused host Bryan Cranston (what, no “Breaking Bad” spoof?!), the most recent episode of “Saturday Night Live” was a bit of a dud. The highlight of the show featured newcomer Vanessa Bayer spoofing Miley Cyrus in what I hope will…

Kanye Kills It On “Saturday Night Live”

Kanye West may be an ego-maniacal douchebag, but boy, did he redeem himself musically on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend. Performing “Power” (above) and “Runaway” (after the jump) on a glowing white stage, backed by over a dozen ballet dancers, Kanye killed it. Seriously, Mr. West, STFU and stick to what you’re good at…

Quickies: Tina Fey Reveals Worst “SNL” Host & Possibly More “Harry Potter” In The Works

Tina Fey hit Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” with Andy Cohen and revealed who was the worst “SNL” host. If you’re great at reading lips, unlike me, let us know who it was in the comments. [Bravo]
Whitney Port participated in Rue La La’s Live Chat and The Frisky got to ask some…

Are Amy Poehler And Andy Samberg’s New “SNL” Promos Excellent?

This weekend, Amy Poehler is hosting the season premiere of “Saturday Night Live” while Katy Perry will be shaking off the bachelorette hangover as the musical guest. NBC has released the first promos for the episode, featuring Amy along with Andy Samberg. What, was Seth Meyers too busy for a “Weekend Update” reunion? Mostly,…

Lindsay Lohan To Maybe Host “Saturday Night Live”

We’ve given Lindsay Lohan oodles of suggestions for things she can do to get her career back on track after her stint in jail, some time in rehab, and a possible baby stroller hit-and-run last week. But, apparently, Lindsay doesn’t need our help. LiLo is currently in talks to host “Saturday Night Live” on December…

Amy Poehler Will Host “Saturday Night Live”‘s Season Premiere, But Jenny Slate Is Out

Do a little happy dance: Amy Poehler will return to “Saturday Night Live” on September 25th to host with Katy Perry as the musical guest. But all is not well on the new “SNL” season — featured player Jenny Slate has allegedly been given the boot.

Who Might Be The New Cast Members On “Saturday Night Live”?

“Saturday Night Live” is a little like The Situation’s bed: There’s always somebody rotating in and out. Last weekend Will Forte announced he won’t return for “SNL”‘s next season. Because, uh, “MacGruber” the movie was so successful or something? Yeah, whatever. At least this means some other starving comedians won’t be eating ramen noodles next…

Jane Lynch To Host “Saturday Night Live”

Facebook users are doing an awesome job of casting “Saturday Night Live” hosts. In the spring, a group was formed on the site angling for Betty White to host an episode, which she did in May. More recently, a group started to get Jane Lynch, aka Sue Sylvester of “Glee,” the gig. And lo and…

If you’ve been paying attention to the Hollywood rumor mill, you might have noticed that “Saturday Night Live” funnyman Jason Sudeikis has become a bit of a ladies’ man! With an alleged hookup with Jennifer Aniston and his current relationship with January Jones, Sudeikis has proven to be a surprising heartbreaker. The Second City alum…

Betty White Talks “SNL” & Jay-Z Making A Pass

Betty White appeared on Jay Leno this week to discuss her wildly successful “Saturday Night Live” hosting gig last weekend. In the clip above, she describes how nervous she was about going upwards of 14 sketches and the moment musical guest Jay-Z got “fresh” with her. Jigga what?!

Betty White Slays ‘Em On “Saturday Night Live”

Hey, did you catch Betty White hosting “Saturday Night Live” this weekend? There was a lot of hype surrounding this episode, so much so that it seemed almost important that Betty could live up to everyone’s expectations — but as far as I’m concerned, she did. Supported by some of the most beloved female…

Less Than 53 Hours Until Betty White Hosts “SNL”!

I’m really looking forward to my usual stay-in-and-be-a-homebody-loser-routine on Saturday night because Betty White is hosting “Saturday Night Live,” with musical guest Jay-Z. NBC has released a few more promos and if they’re an example of what’s to come, my excuse for not going out is golden. Is there anything more awesome than Betty…

Gabourey Sidibe Pops Her Cherry On “Saturday Night Live”

Gabourey Sidibe hosted “Saturday Night Live” this weekend. Since we adore the girl, we were really looking forward to it. But in actuality, she was pretty eh—flubbing lines and breaking character on occasion. Perhaps live just isn’t her thing? Because the best segment of the night was a (we assume) pre-recorded short she did…

Whee! Gabourey Sidibe Is Hosting “SNL” This Weekend!

Judging by these promos, Gabourey Sidibe’s hosting gig on “Saturday Night Live” is going to involve a lot of guns and Andy Samberg with his pants off. (But hopefully not so much high-pitched screaming.) But you know what this means, guys? There’ll actually be a black woman on “SNL” — not just Kena…
