Seth Meyers Got Married This Weekend, but Not to Stefon

Probably the most theme-appropriate news of the extended Labor Day weekend is that Seth Meyers, former (sniff) Weekend Update desk jockey and future host of NBC's Late Night, married his longtime girlfriend, human rights lawyer Alexi Ashe, in an "intimate ceremony" on Martha's Vineyard. It doesn't get much more Labor… » 9/02/13 11:30am 9/02/13 11:30am

Europe Smells Like Sex and Other Weekend Update Revelations from…

Arianna Huffington graced the Weekend Update desk with her sardonic presence last night, and talked about how badass Hillary Clinton's Benghazi testimony was this week.

Stefon Regales Us with Spooky Tales of Halloween Debauchery

Stefon graced the Weekend Update desk to reveal all of his favorite Halloween haunts, including more onomatopoetic clubs and the Radioshack dumpster he currently calls home.

Paul Ryan Seems a Lot Like the Boy-Next-Door Killer in a Lifetime Movie

Arianna Huffington came to the Weekend Update to critique Martha Raddatz's debate moderation, elucidate the mysteries of the vagina, and talk about Joe Biden's more feminine qualities .

Cecilia Gimenez Visits the Weekend Update and Demonstrates How Best to…

Big Bird fluttered into the "Weekend Update" and didn't swear or smoke cigarettes or anything, which would have been funny. However, Cecilia Gimenez, the woman who re-imagined Jesus as a gibbon, dropped by to explain her inspiration for "restoring" her church's fresco, and also offer Seth Meyers his very own… » 10/07/12 12:30pm 10/07/12 12:30pm

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo to the Weekend Update

Last night's SNL premiere featured Seth MacFarlane showing off his vocal range and Jay Pharoah's new and improved Barack Obama impersonation. Oh, and Bill Hader's Clint Eastwood did stand-up with a chair, which makes you realize how long ago it was that Unforgiven came out. Most notably, though, was that Mama and her… » 9/16/12 1:00pm 9/16/12 1:00pm

Time Really Should Have Photoshopped Out the Chair on Breastfeeding…

Will Ferrell returned to SNL last night in an attempt to fan the embers of his dying movie career (he'll star opposite Zach Galifianakis in the latest movie with a baby-punching joke, The Campaign, surely not destined to be confused for a much better movie about politics, Election). Saturday Night Live has gotten… » 5/13/12 1:30pm 5/13/12 1:30pm

Kristen Wiig's Paula Deen Impression Is So Delicious, It Might Have…

Here's a little leftover treat (deep fried, then slathered in frosting) from the weekend when Paula Deen stopped by SNL to defend herself against the racism and sexual harassment complaint recently brought against her and her brother Bubba.

See the Maya Rudolph Oprah Impression That Didn't Make It on to SNL

It's too bad this Oprah Winfrey sketch was cut from the live version of Maya Rudolph's Saturday Night Live, but in a way, it's almost more fun to get to see her goofing around with Amy Poehler and Seth Meyers during dress rehearsal. Her Oprah impression might be a little uneven, but the hilarious under-the-seat gifts… » 2/28/12 11:55pm 2/28/12 11:55pm

Congress Doesn't 'Really' Care What Women Think About Birth Control

One of the minor consequences of Whitney Houston's death last week is that it prevented Maya Rudolph from doing her famous impression last night when she hosted SNL. Instead, we got a Maya Rudolph Beyoncé, which became especially funny when Rudolph sang an account of Beyoncé's labor pangs to all the celebrity guests… » 2/19/12 1:30pm 2/19/12 1:30pm

Guy Fieri Will Ruin Your Super Bowl Party with Toilet Snacks

Last night's episode of SNL featured Channing Tatum getting all kinds of shirtless and Bobby Moynihan doing his awesome Guy Fieri impression on the Weekend Update.
