I Don’t Care, I Want A Shake Weight

I gotta be honest, y’all. I kind of want to try the Shake Weight. Sure, it makes your arms look like they’re giving a fairly vigorous handy, but is that really so embarrassing if you’re doing it in the privacy of your own home while wearing workout clothes? “Saturday Night Live” hilariously spoofed the,…

Tina Fey: Not Feminist Enough?

I knew this was going to happen: Tina Fey hosted “Saturday Night Live” this past weekend and yesterday morning, our fellow lady blogs were all abuzz with complain-y posts. Bloggers I read and respect, including Sady Doyle at Feministe, Jessica Grose at Double X, and Irin Carmon at Jezebel, took to their blogs to react…

The 5 Best And Worst “SNL” Movies Of All Time

As those of us longtime fans of “Saturday Night Live” know, turning a five-minute skit into a two-hour movie can be either the best idea ever or the worst. Really, there doesn’t seem to be much middle ground when it comes to “SNL” films. Next month, “MacGruber,” the latest of the “SNL” flicks,…

Zach Galifianakis Was “So Raven” On SNL

I. told. you. so. Zach Galifianakis was SOLID GOLD as the host of “Saturday Night Live” last night, from the minute he walked on set during his opening monologue. The only thing to complain about — there wasn’t enough of him. While normally I’m happy to see hosts make minor appearances in plenty of…

Zach Galifianakis Is Going To Rule So Hard On “SNL”

Over the weekend I had a dream about Zach Galifianakis that gave me a tingle in my lower parts. Ever since, it’s been hard to think of anything else. I don’t know what it is about him — his beard, his cushion-y physique, his hilarious charm maybe? — but I am seriously crushing. I…

Jennifer Lopez Nails Rihanna On “SNL”

Jennifer Lopez hosted and performed on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend and as you might expect of the totally meh singer/actress, the episode was only so-so. However, the opening skit, which spoofed the catastrophe known as “We Are The World 25″ (which was filled with “half famous randoms”) was hilarrrrrious and J.Lo herself did…

Jennifer Lopez Wins Most Awkwardly Timed “SNL” Gig Award

Am I alone in thinking it’s hilarious that the same week she’s dropped by her label, Jennifer Lopez is the host and musical guest on “Saturday Night Live”? No? Thought so.

Betty White May Be Hosting “SNL” After All — Just Not On Her Own

Ask — nay, demand — and Lorne Michaels will listen, sort of. For the last month or so, fans of Betty White have been clamoring for the “Golden Girl” to host “Saturday Night Live,” and according to Michael Ausiello at Entertainment Weekly, producer Lorne Michaels is game. However, he’s apparently not sure that White, who…

Today’s Lady News: Please, Tina Fey, Do Sarah Palin When You Host “SNL” In April!

Tina Fey is guest hosting “Saturday Night Live” in April, which probably means another Sarah Palin impersonation! “It’s inevitable that we’ll try it, at least,” Fey told the AP. “We’ll see if it makes it to air.” Now, if they could just get Amy Poehler back to do Hillary Clinton. [AP]
Happy 88th birthday,…

This Could Be One Of The Funniest Episodes Of “SNL” Ever

I could just look at Zach Galifianakis’ face and laugh uproariously, but his work in “The Hangover” (amongst other films) and his “interview” series, “Between Two Ferns,” are pretty hysterical too. [Twitter]…

Jon Hamm Does Sexy Sax Man Sergio & Senator Scott Brown On SNL

Jon Hamm hosted “Saturday Night Live” this weekend — for no real reason other than his undeniable hotness, seeing as he doesn’t have a movie to promote and “Mad Men” is on hiatus — and the results were delightfully … weird. In the digital short, above, Hamm plays a sexy saxophonist named Sergio who…

Alicia Keys Makes A Booty Call

I missed the new episode of “Saturday Night Live” this weekend, but caught the latest digital short on Hulu. It’s hilariously … odd?

Julian Casablancas Performs “SNL” Christmas Song

One of my favorite albums of the year is the Julian Casablancas solo record Phrazes for the Young — if you’re a fan of The Strokes, especially their first record, and you love Julian’s voice as much as I do, buy this album, like, now. One of the bonus tracks on the album if…

James Franco French Kisses A Dude On “SNL”

If you watched James Franco hosting “SNL” this weekend, then you might have noticed a little bit of a theme … homosexuality. Almost every skit contained some sort of gay reference. Hmmm … let’s see: He played Latin singing star Rico Garlanda, danced in footsie pajamas, portrayed James Dean exchanging secret Santa gifts with…

We’re About To Get A Whole Lot More Of Taylor Lautner

Normally, this is a man’s problem. Some pretty young thing, a starlet of the day, Brooke Shields, the Olsen Twins, or Miley Cyrus in a blanket is splashed everywhere, exposed to the full media gaze — gorgeous, nearly naked, and jail-bait. Now, it’s mine.

Does “SNL” Think Domestic Violence Against Tiger Woods Is Funny?

I had uncomfortable feelings about this “Saturday Night Live” skit where Kenan Thompson and Blake Lively make fun of Elin Nordegren allegedly beating up Tiger Woods. Ever since the Woods/Nordegren shiz-nit went down over Thanksgiving, I’ve been noodling a blog post about how I’ve heard and read nothing condemning Nordegren’s what-sounds-a-lot-like domestic violence against…

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Backflips On A Meh Episode Of “SNL”

Joseph Gordon-Levitt hosted “Saturday Night Live” this weekend, and while it was an improvement over January Jones’ epic failing the previous week, the episode was meh. The best moments were definitely JGL’s singin’ and and dancin’ and back-flippin’ in the opening monologue (above), as well as his turn as Jason Mraz on “The Mellow…

January Jones On “SNL” Teaches Us How A Lady Throws A Party

This weekend, January Jones’ guest-hosting gig on “Saturday Night Live” turned out to be a disappointing failure. Fart jokes? Really? But at least the “Mad Men” princess got a few giggles out of me with a “Ladies’ Guide To Party Planning.” The best part is when she has to go to the bathroom and…

Taylor Swift’s “SNL” Monologue Was The Sweetest Revenge

Everybody speculated Taylor Swift would use her hosting powers to skewer Hennessy-swigging rude boy Kanye West in her “SNL” monologue and she kind of did, towards the end. But I heard myself shrieking, “Yeah, Taylor!” when she called out another jerk in Hollywood who’s done her wrong: ex-boyfriend Joe Jonas, who she say…

Happy Guy Fawkes Day!

Remember, remember the Fifth of November. This was the day that Guy Fawkes was thwarted in his attempt to explode the British Parliament in the 17th Century (and was caught, tortured, and killed). Our friends across the pond celebrate and commemorate with bonfires, burnings in effigy, and such. This side of the pond, I’m…
