​The Jay Z-Solange Elevator Showdown Happened Over a Spider

Last night, Andy Samberg returned to Saturday Night Live to host the season finale with the stupendous St. Vincent as a musical guest, and it felt like one big ol' afterparty. There was a crazy amount of cameos from other SNL veterans because 1) it was the season finale and they just don’t give a damn, 2) it’s not… » 5/18/14 3:00pm 5/18/14 3:00pm

Barbara Walters Stopped by SNL to Say Bye to Television

Barbara Walters is set to officially retire from television this week, so it looks like she's sort of making the rounds before she heads out. She dropped by Weekend Update on last night's episode of SNL (hosted by a sort of tiresome Charlize Theron) to give some advice about her, um, grain of journalism and to give… » 5/11/14 5:57pm 5/11/14 5:57pm

This is What Happens When You Dare to Mildly Cross Beyoncé

Last night, Andrew Garfield hosted SNL with some cameos by his lady Emma Stone. More importantly, SNL brought us this gem of a trailer for the new action-packed thriller about a man who was stupid enough to admit that maybe he didn't love everything about Beyoncé. Not only is he shunned by strangers as well as those… » 5/04/14 12:30pm 5/04/14 12:30pm

Cosmo Celebrates Women of SNL by Dressing Them in Expensive Pajamas

This month's issue of Cosmopolitan devotes a sizable amount of ink to Q&A's with the women of SNL, complete with a photo spread of the comedians at a fake girly slumber party wearing girly pjs that cost more than most semi-successful comedians get paid to headline a half hour set. As with everything of or related to… » 4/09/14 5:00pm 4/09/14 5:00pm

​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. The last time CK was left to helm the cast of studio 8H, it ended up being one of the more funny and strange episodes in recent memory, so here's to hoping that this time will bring… » 3/26/14 11:40am 3/26/14 11:40am

​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… » 3/09/14 12:00pm 3/09/14 12:00pm

Did Ellen Page Come Out in This SNL Sketch From 2008?

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

Jonah Hill & Brompany Touched Each Other All Over SNL

There was a lot of broing out last night on SNL, from Leonardo DiCaprio ambushing Jonah Hill during the monologue, to Michael Cera gently cupping Jonah Hill's testicles during a Her parody. It was all great fun, and no testicles were harmed in the making of the sketch (though Michael Cera's credibility as an… » 1/26/14 1:00pm 1/26/14 1:00pm

Enjoy a Brooklyn Girls Tour with Sasheer Zamata

Sasheer Zamata, SNL’s newest cast member, is still releasing fresh YouTube material despite her coveted new TV contract. Here the comedienne plays a young woman named Madison who has begun a career of being a Girls tour guide, shuttling fans of the HBO show around Brooklyn hot spots like Cafe Grumpy.
