What is Saturday Night Live good for, if not speaking spoof to power? In a skit aired over the weekend Scarlett Johansson joined the show’s ever-growing cast of Trumpian impressions, a hard joke to do right considering the real characters already parody themselves. And who better for her to play than Ivanka?
Pete Davidson has been on Saturday Night Live a bit less lately, appearing in fewer sketches or pre-recorded bits.
Polls! What do they even tell us? Mostly, they confirm that a terrifying number of people know nothing and don’t care about truth, but also that they love Melissa McCarthy, so it’s not all bad.
Melissa McCarthy made a special appearance on Saturday Night Live tonight to portray White House press secretary Sean Spicer. It’s incredible:
Last Saturday, comedian Aziz Ansari hosted Saturday Night Live and, in his opening monologue, likened supporters of Donald Trump to Chris Brown fans. He explained that in each case, fans remain steadfast even if they “don’t condone the [individual’s] extracurriculars.” Of course, folded into the joke is a critique of…
President-elect Donald Trump continues to watch Saturday Night Live with paranoid devotion and to, subsequently, fuss about Alec Baldwin’s portrayal of him. So, you will not be surprised to learn that Trump did not appreciate the show’s “Pee-Pee Party” Press Conference cold open, and that he made his disapproval known…
Saturday Night Live’s planned cold open for October 8—a spoof of the Tuesday debate between America’s stepdads, the Vice Presidential nominees—was clearly waylaid by Pussygate, and so they preempted it with a “CNN Breaking News” interview with “Donald Trump,” as portrayed by a pitch-perfect and sufficiently orange…
Say goodbye to these sweet-faced gentlemen. It’s been announced that neither one will be returning for Season 42 of Saturday Night Live.
If you were wondering whether Drake’s recent beard shave meant that he has lost all of his hip-hop powers, then last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live proved you wrong. But then again, your relief only proved to be short-lived, for we now have irrefutable proof that Canadians are a lot more terrifying than any of…
A recent Saturday Night Live sketch has now given us all an excuse to irritate our conservative drunk uncles at the dinner table during the next upcoming major holiday. “God is gay,” we can now all say, “also, pass the salt, please?”
Julia Louis-Dreyfus is hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend, marking her third triumphant return to the show since her mostly forgettable stint as a cast member in the early ‘80s.
Let’s all guess how much Tidal, a streaming service which I, like many Americans, forget exists until Kanye tweets about it, paid off the writers at Saturday Night Live to create a sketch that namedrops them a bunch while a famous performer sings in the background. Just kidding. (Mostly.)
Saturday Night Live decided to pay an homage to feminism in song by not actually writing a song about feminism—and the anti-anthem ended up being a glorious primer on the intricacies of intersectional feminism anyway.
1) This is Chloë Grace Moretz on SNL Korea this past weekend. 2) There’s a Korean version of Saturday Night Live. 3) Chloë Grace Moretz speaks Korean in the sketch. 4) I would say Chloë Grace Moretz’s Korean is pretty decent, but I do not speak Korean, so I do not know.
In an alleged backstage audio from the night of his Saturday Night Live performance this past weekend, Kanye West can be heard screaming about Taylor Swift, Stanley Kubrick and Apostle Paul.
If you tuned into Saturday Night Live’s February 13 show last night, you were probably expecting a Kanye performance or two, and maybe Melissa McCarthy reminding us that her penchant for face contortion is the apex of an actual art form. But the decades-old show might have bested last week’s Bernie Sanders cameo (and…
On the same night that the Republican debate gave us the Marco Roboto, the meme we’ve all been waiting for, Curb Your Enthusiasm’s Larry David returned to Saturday Night Live to revisit his uncanny Bernie Sanders impression.
After Sarah Palin endorsed Donald Trump earlier this week, it was almost inevitable that Tina Fey would return Saturday Night Live to revisit her classic Palin impression. And Fey definitely did not disappoint, she offered up an unhinged riff on Palin’s meandering and confusing Iowa endorsement speech while Darrell…
Adam Driver hosted Saturday Night Live this week, where he reprised his role as Kylo Ren, trying to understand the workers of Starkiller Base by going undercover. Needless to say, it doesn’t go as expected.
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler returned to Saturday Night Live last night, likely making for the most watchable episode of the season. Fittingly, the pair revisited some of the most successful characters from their tenure on the show, namely Fey’s Sarah Palin and Poehler’s Hillary Clinton.
