“Problematic!!!” disclaimer here (I know, it’s tired): but it’s still saddening to see people in poverty and/or with a very common stigmatized incurable virus lumped in with sexual predators. Last night’s SNL’s well-intended “Grabbies” skit, an Oscars for Hollywood’s rapists and harassers, was tinged as per usual with…
If you’ve been having... or trying to have... or working up the nerve to have difficult talks about the news cycle around sexual assault, then perhaps you’ll relate to this Saturday Night Live sketch from Saturday’s episode.
Sometimes I try to watch SNL through the lens of a cynical young tastemaker, pantomiming disgust at a show whose glory days are long behind it. Occasionally I succeed, but more often I guffaw along at the sketches like the gym short-wearing, couch-bound middle-aged father that I secretly am. Last night, the enduringly…
In a statement released Tuesday morning, 36 former women staffers of SNL “stood up” for Sen. Al Franken, who worked on and off for the show from its premiere in 1975 to 1995. “What Al did was stupid and foolish, and we think it was appropriate for him to apologize to Ms. Tweeden, and to the public,” the statement…
We all wish Barack Obama would come back to us for just one more day, an hour, a minute, a SECOND. Over the weekend, Saturday Night Live captured our depression in musical form, with a Boyz II Men sendup dedicated to the former president.

Tonight’s episode of Saturday Night Live marks the finale of its 42nd season, as well as Vanessa Bayer’s last appearance as a cast member on the show.
In November, during the first post-election SNL, Dave Chappelle devoted much of his 11-minute monologue to Donald Trump. He joked about the the then-president-elect, calling him an “internet troll” at one point, but concluded on a serious note: “I’m wishing Donald Trump luck, and I’m gonna give him a chance, and we,…

Harry Styles was the musical guest on Saturday Night Live this weekend and, in debuting his new solo material, excelled on the notoriously difficult (both acoustically and logistically) SNL stage.
