Louis C.K. is here to save the day with the latest promo videos for his second ever hosting stint on the Good Ship Saturday Night Live. The clips hint that more of that signature Louie style is heading our way. And — at long last! — in his actual, natural accent. Oh yeah, didn’t you know? Louis C.K. is a total Bayou Baby!
Saturday Night Live's in one of those weird lulls where new episodes seem sort of sporadic, but the sketch comedy series has lined up hosts for its next cluster of episodes, the first of which airs at the end of March. NBC has confirmed that comedian Louis C.K. will return to host on March 29.
Lena Dunham is taking her brand of humor and perma-following controversy to the Saturday Night Live stage this week and NBC has just released the brand spanking new promotional videos to prove it. Saddling up alongside fellow hip young feminist Kate McKinnon, the duo hit all the appropriate Dunham talking points: nudity, GIRLS, exhaustive worrying, and self-deprecating honesty.
The reigning king of mainstreamed geekery is heading to Saturday Night Live this weekend, taking his first turn as host on the longstanding NBC sketch show. That’s right: The Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons is mere days away from helming the good ship SNL as it returns from its winter hiatus. And now we’ve got the promotional video to prove it! [Bazinga joke!]
Lena Dunham is about to get her Studio 8H debut. The real-life embodiment of Girls’ Hannah Horvath, writer, director, and creator Dunham will take her first trip to Saturday Night Live on March 8th of this year with musical guest The National. Time to get your best naked cake jokes ready, you guys.
Well this is nice. Filled equally with humor and earnestness, several members of the Saturday Night Live family bid their last farewell to Weekend Updater and longtime cast member Seth Meyers in a new video in advance of his December 24th premiere on Late Night. Featuring many of the show’s cast members — new and old alike — it showcases the impact Meyers had during his time as the late night sketch show’s head writer.
We still have a couple of weeks to wait for the next new episode of Saturday Night Live. The Olympics has put NBC into rerun territory for the most part, but the late night sketch comedy series will be back soon enough, and when it does, Jim Parsons will host an episode. The Big Bang Theory star has been lined up to host the March 1. While this is Parson's first time hosting, it isn't the first time for the episode's musical guest. Beck will be returning for his seventh appearance as musical guest in the series.
Last night's episode of Saturday Night Live marked the end of an era as it was the final episode for writer and "Weekend Update" news anchor Seth Meyers, who's destined to move from Saturday to weeknights at NBC, taking over for SNL-vet Jimmy Fallon at Late Night.
Melissa McCarthy is hosting Saturday Night Live this week for the third time. Which is reason enough to anticipate your upcoming Saturday DVR stash; these promotional video clips are simply icing on the very funny cake. And with the bevy of topics just waiting to be touched on this weekend — from the Super Sports Match Show to the Winter Olympics — we’re sure that the supremely hilarious McCarthy is going to knock this one out of the park. Athleticism! Sports metaphors! Torches!
Watch Leonardo DiCaprio Crash Jonah Hill's Saturday Night Live Monologue... And Other Highlight Videos
Jonah Hill returned to Saturday Night Live to host the sketch comedy series for the third time. Hot off another Oscar nomination, Hill was keen to talk himself up a bit during the opening monologue, but Leonardo DiCaprio was quick to intervene and remind his Wolf of Wall Street co-star to be humble.
With Seth Meyers poised to exit Saturday Night Live in a matter of weeks, we were left to wonder who would take over the news desk for the "Weekend Update" segments. SNL player Cecily Strong joined Meyers as co-anchor at the start of this season, but there was no word on whether she would handle the duties solo once Meyers left for his NBC late night talk show, or if someone would join her.
Jonah Hill is a really easy target, as a seemingly insecure person that also has an intense drive to prove himself while still being unsure about the position he’s found himself in. He’s a little bit try too hard, a little eager to please. So we're not really all that surprised that his run of Saturday Night Live promos end with him apologizing profusely for something as inconsequential as a bit of Sharpie on the tongue of Taran Killam.
Saturday Night Live’s Season 39 has made big headlines several times recently, from hiring a slew of new cast members to nabbing excellent guest stars. This year definitively marked the end of the old guard and the start of a new one, but it’s nice to see some big names and veteran guest stars return to ensure the change happens smoothly. On Friday, NBC announced that Melissa McCarthy will be back to host an episode of SNL next month.
Rapper Drake will be doing double duty this Saturday as host and musical guest on NBC’s Saturday Night Live and the network released the promos for the upcoming show on Wednesday. Turns out? Drake’s got some serious fanboys in the cast of SNL, namely Bobby Moynihan and Jay Pharoah, who are all too keen to show the multi-hyphenate (never forget Wheelchair Jimmy) their sweet, sweet beats and cool, cool cats.
Man, the 2014 Golden Globes were nutty, eh? Awards season’s drunkest cousin on the block had its night in the spotlight on Sunday evening and as is to be expected, they did not disappoint. From minute one the show was off on a rocketing and riotous pace, with hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler absolutely nailing their opening monologue and things only continued off the rails from there. In a good way, of course!
