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 Debuting Meatloaf Impersonation On “SNL,” Maybe

That Whitney Houston impersonation is getting filed under "Too Soon" for, like, a year. But you know who is still alive who Maya Rudolph can impersonate when she hosts "Saturday Night Live" tomorrow night? Oh, just a little actor and musician named Meatloaf. [NBC.com]…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Ahh, "Saturday Night Live." Thank you for making our interwebian dreams come true.

Scarlett Johansson Spoofs “The Millionaire Matchmaker”

The only thing better than an actual episode of "The Millionaire Matchmaker"? Scarlett Johansson's impression of Patti Stanger on "Saturday Night Live" this weekend. You might not think with that blond hair and alabaster skin that Scarlett could pull of a convincing Patti, but she nails that Jersey accent! [NBC.com]…

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.

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…

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 "…

Men Prefer Betty White

I heart Betty White, but not as much as this dude. He's probably the guy who bought this naked painting of her... Anyway, I cannot friggin' wait for Ms. White to host "Saturday Night Live" this weekend! Although this awesomely hilarious song may be a better tribute. This hot track is right…

Betty White’s Badass “SNL” Promo

On May 8, Betty White is gonna kill it on "Saturday Night Live." How do I know? Well, just check out this commercial for her guest spot. Radonkulous! Now, it's clearly time to start a Facebook group to get Rue McClanahan, aka "Blanche Devereaux," a hosting slot too. Stay Golden!

Tina Fey Gives The People What They Want: Another Sarah Palin Impersonation

Tina Fey returned to "Saturday Night Live" last night to host with the terrifying musical guest Justin Bieber. She made us long for the days — was it only two years ago? — when "SNL" had Tina every week! We can't just pick one a-maz-ing clip from Saturday, so we're posting three…

Gabourey Sidibe Is Hosting “SNL”!

How excited are we that Gabourey Sidibe has scored a gig hosting “SNL”? Eat that, Howard Stern! I love how even though the world has been literally riding her ass about her weight, that it hasn’t stopped her from moving forward with her career. Go Gaby! There’s no date set yet, but we’ll be…

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, hits theaters.

Jon Hamm Brings His Matchmaking Prowess Back To “SNL”

The first time Jon Hamm hosted "Saturday Night Life," cast member Fred Armisen met his future wife, Elisabeth Moss, during a "Mad Men" skit. Who will Jon Hamm's Patented Lurve-Making Magic work on this Saturday? (Also, do you think getting rid of that awful Grizzly Man beard was a pre-condition of…

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…

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…

Hopefully Kanye West Won’t Interrupt Taylor Swift On “SNL” This Weekend

My favorite "country" music singer, Taylor Swift, will be hosting and performing on "Saturday Night Live" this weekend, and the promo pays tribute to the Kanye West debacle at the MTV Video Music Awards. Yes, this incident was rather amusing and ridiculous, but I'm gonna be a little annoyed if there are multiple…
