​SNL Brings You Your New Favorite Hard-Hitting Cop Show: Dyke & Fats

Last night Louis CK hosted a brilliant, very Louis CK episode of SNL, full of skits that went on just a tad too long only to be decisively followed up by a perfectly awkward and pedantic punchline. It also gave us a preview for a show that really needs to happen right now, maybe yesterday, about the two best damn… » 3/30/14 12:30pm 3/30/14 12:30pm

Meet the REAL Louis CK in This Week's SNL Promos

Louis CK is returning to host Saturday Night Live for the second time this Saturday, which is good news for fans of his and SNL alike.

​Lena Dunham's Stint on SNL Was a Feminist Extravaganza

Last night, Lena Dunham took to the stage over at 30 Rock as the host of Saturday Night Live on International Women's Day, and she did not hold back. The episode had some standard Dunham nudity, enough of her saying "I just feel like" to last a lifetime of therapy, and even a planned parenthood shoutout! In her opening… » 3/09/14 12:00pm 3/09/14 12:00pm

» 2/15/14 4:52pm 2/15/14 4:52pm

Ellen Page, who came out as gay yesterday, has been a lightning rod of conversation on the internet since her annuncement. Many are supportive (you go, Jez commenters!), some took to Twitter to express their shock, dismay, and disgust (click link to tweets at your own risk!), and some asked the question "didn't Ellen… » 2/15/14 4:52pm 2/15/14 4:52pm

Stefon's Appearance on Seth Meyers’s Last Weekend Update Was Bittersweet

Seth Meyers gave his final Weekend Update last night. It was sad, and there were a couple of times when everyone almost lost control and cried on live television. That didn't happen, though, and we can probably thank the sudden appearances of Amy Poehler, Andy Samberg, Fred Armisen, and Stefon for bringing some levity… » 2/02/14 12:00pm 2/02/14 12:00pm

Last night's return episode of SNL featured the newest cast member, totally normal regular everyday SNL hire Sasheer Zamata, formerly of the Upright Citizens Brigade.

Your Boyfriend Drake's SNL Promos Remind You That He Can Act, Too

Just the mere presence of the host and musical guest of this weekend's Saturday Night Live makes it difficult for Bobby Moynihan and Jay Pharoah to speak normally, so imagine what's going to happen on Saturday. MAGIC, that's what. I could listen to him say, "Those are literally some cool cats" until the end of time. » 1/15/14 12:50pm 1/15/14 12:50pm

Saturday Night Social: Melissa McCarthy Gives Zero Fucks About Football

And yet, she will host Saturday Night Live on Feb. 1, less than 24 hours before Super Bowl XLVIII. Since the Super Bowl will be on CBS, SNL and the Super Bowl really don't have a whole lot to do with each other, but it's still nice to know that there are people out there willing to openly defy the evil NFL Empire by… » 1/11/14 6:30pm 1/11/14 6:30pm
