The “SNL” Crew Obviously Goes To My Starbucks

On this week’s criminally unfunny “Saturday Night Live,” featuring underused host Jennifer Lawrence, there was one actually hilarious moment; the show did a faux commercial for Starbucks’ new enhanced Verismo system, which gives you the authentic Starbucks customer experience. Nobody spelling your name right? Check. Getting your drink wrong? Yup. Excessively long wait times? Uh…

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Hosting “Saturday Night Live” This Week!

The last time Joseph Gordon-Levitt hosted “Saturday Night Live,” he performed a musical number and did a righteous backflip during his opening monologue. Oh yeah, and Number #1 Fan Julie Gerstein was in the country to watch him on TV. Not this time! JG is on vacay while JGL is on “SNL,” but hopefully she&#8217…

Mick Jagger Brings Sex, Drugs & Rock ‘N; Roll To “Saturday Night Live”

The man who taught several generations about sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll is hosting this week’s season finale of “Saturday Night Live.” Sadly, Mick Jagger’s probably got less of a drug problem these days than certain other recent hosts who shall remain nameless. [Pop Culture Brain]…

Justin Bieber, Jon Hamm Help Celebrate “SNL”‘s 100th Digital Short

Maybe you love Andy Samberg and co.’s weekly “Saturday Night Live” Digital Shorts. Maybe you don’t. Either way, you have gotta watch this clip if only to catch Jon Hamm thrusting his pelvis in Justin Bieber’s teenage face.

Kate McKinnon Makes Her “Saturday Night Live” Debut

This past weekend, new “Saturday Night Live” cast member Kate McKinnon made her debut, and by all accounts, was a hit. And that’s a good, especially since rumors persist that key lady cast member Kristin Wiig will be leaving at the end of this season. Here, McKinnon appears for a scant 30 seconds, doing a…

“Saturday Night Live” Adds Lady Cast Member Kate McKinnon

Squee! Rumor has it “Saturday Night Live” has added a female cast member named Kate McKinnon and she is someone we already know and love around these parts! Kate starred in “Vag Magazine,” the kickass webseries that spoofed women who work at a feminist magazine, as the flaky girl Bethanny. Comedic Kate hails from the…

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. []…

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 NBC]…

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]…

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…

Jesse Eisenberg And Mark Zuckerberg Come Face-To-Face On “SNL”

Ahh, “Saturday Night Live.” Thank you for making our interwebian dreams come true. On Saturday’s episode, Jesse Eisenberg of “The Social Network” hosted and in his opening monologue, shared with us his knowledge of the menstrual cycle. Soon after, he was joined on stage by (Andy Samberg and) Mark Zuckerberg, the Facebook creator…

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! []…

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 our heart…

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…

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 — beautiful…

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…
