You’ve Got To Watch “SNL”‘s Hilariously Scathing Scientology Spoof

This fake commercial from last night’s “Saturday Night Live” may be about a religion called the “Church of Neurotology,” but all of the details so closely resemble actual facts from the HBO doc (and book of the same name) “Going Clear,” that you almost can’t even call it a spoof of Scientology. Made to look…

“SNL” & Kate McKinnon Flawlessly Spoof Iggy Azalea

Australian accents are among the hardest, I think, English-speaking accents to mimic, but you know what’s even more difficult? Mimicking Iggy Azalea’s Australian-meets-Southern-rapper accent — but current “SNL” queen Kate McKinnon nailed it on Saturday’s episode, in which she and Sasheer Zamata spoofed Iggy and Azealia Banks’ feud. SO hip-hop, mate.

Manchild Justin Bieber Will Get Roasted On Comedy Central

Noted tattoo enthusiast and walking condom-beanie Justin Bieber will finally get the Comedy Central Roast treatment, according to Ryan Seacrest.. The special will tape in March and air at an undetermined time in 2015. I am sure the waiting list for participants is already long (Seth Rogen is surely first in line, given his longtime…

Amy Adams Can’t Keep It Together During SNL’s “Love Actually” Spoof

Somehow, in its 11 years of existence, I only watched “Love Actually” for the first time this past weekend. It was heartwarming, it was enduring, it was uplifting and I freakin’ loved it, which is what makes the timing of Amy Adams’ guest spot on “Saturday Night Live” this week even more perfect.
In a…

Watch “SNL” Celebrate Kicking Back At Your Parents’ House For The Holidays

If your parents are the type who only get to see you a few times a year and gush about you to anyone who will listen in between, going home for Thanksgiving probably means being treating like a queen the whole weekend. After living in a tiny city apartment, eating a steady stream of takeout…

Bill Hader Brought Stefon Back To “Saturday Night Live” And It Was Glorious

On Saturday, Bill Hader made an appearance on “Saturday Night Live” and his legendary character Stefon paid a visit to Weekend Update for the first time since Hader left the show. The segment’s “city correspondent” hasn’t changed a bit — and that’s how we like it. Watch him do us all a public service by…

Chris Pratt & Aidy Bryant Flirt With Raunchy Rap Lyrics On “SNL”

Aidy Bryant is very quickly becoming my favorite cast member (okay, besides Kate Mackinnon) on “Saturday Night Live.” On last night’s season premiere, hosted by the drool-worthy Chris Pratt, Bryant slayed the best skit of the night, which featured her and Pratt getting over their shyness and flirting with each other via raunchy, booty-heavy ra…

Maya Rudolph made a cameo on last night’s “Saturday Night Live,” resurrecting her FLAWLESS Beyonce impression as she joined husband Jay Z and sister Solange to comment on their recent elevator fight scandal.

“SNL”‘s International Nasty Girls Want “Dongs All Over The World”

Yay! “Saturday Night Live”‘s International Nasty Girls (aka the show’s female cast members and the group behind the song, “(Do It On My) Twin Bed”) are back with a new unbashashadly slutty girl power anthem called “Dongs All Over The World.” It’s about travel sex, which I know a thing or two about. Catch them…

This weekend’s Louis C.K.-hosted “Saturday Night Live” capped off with a winner of a sketch that we hope to see a lot more of: “Dyke & Fats,” the cop show about a pair of Chicago police officers named Lez Dykawitz (Kate McKinnon) and Chubbina Fatzarelli (Aidy Bryant). But fair warning, criminals! Don’t go calling them…

“SNL”‘s Stefon Shares His Spring Break Plans With The World

Oh, Stefon, how we have missed you so! The “Saturday Night Live” skit featuring Bill Hader cracking up at his own jokes actually managed to top itself this week. I cannot even tell you the major snorts I snorted after hearing Stefon’s impression of “Donald Duck waking up from a Vietnam dream.” Also, maybe the…
