At the heart of the promo is the bulk of information fans will need. Rogen is hosting the April 12 episode and the musical guest this week will be Ed Sheeran.
Comedian Louis CK returned to host Saturday Night Live and once again used the opening monologue as an opportunity for some great stand-up comedy. Next time you find yourself saying "I'm starving" or referring to a specific style of shirt as a "wife beater," go ahead and imagine Louis CK being offended. Did the comedian's appearance last night top his first run on the show?
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.
Saturday Night Live is getting good with social media. This week, the late night sketch comedy series announced an upcoming host via the social media outlet Twitter, and more importantly, they announced a really, really good one. Beloved comedian Louis C.K. will return to studio 8H for the second time to operate as emcee for the evening, this time 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.
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.
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.
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.
There were a few big Saturday Night Live updates today, the first of which was that Jonah Hill will be returning to host an episode later this month, and that Drake is set to pull double-duty, serving as both the host and musical guest for an upcoming episode this month. As if that weren’t exciting enough, NBC has passed along official word of the addition of Sasheer Zamata as a featured player in the current season of the long-running sketch comedy series.
Jimmy Fallon is returning to Studio 8H to ring in a bit of holiday cheer for Saturday Night Live’s Christmas-themed episode this weekend. And with a musical guest like perma-fixture Justin Timberlake to goof around with, something tells us the two kooky dudes are going to get everyone into the festive spirit whether they want to be or not. Thankfully, theirs is the gift of comedy and song: two surefire ways to get non-Grinches ready for jokes on jokes on jokes about spending time with family and dealing with holiday shoppers.
John Goodman is returning to the hallowed halls of Saturday Night Live a thoroughly impressive thirteenth time this weekend and the veteran host is churning out Christmas spirit as only he knows how: by screaming a lot with cast member and fellow loud person, Taram Killam. Happy holidays, you guys! And there isn't anything more festive than people talking very loudly — just ask anyone at your family's celebration this year (if you can get a word in edgewise).
Saturday Night Live has tapped Paul Rudd to host its December 7th show with cherubic British wunderbabies, One Direction. Yes, OMG! One Direction! Ahhhhhh! (Breathe, just try to breathe, tweens. It'll be OK.) The NBC comedy series — no doubt hoping to get a piece of the Anchorman 2 media blitz pie — have brought Rudd back for his third turn at hosting. And if these wee clips are any indication, the show's going to be good. Or in the very least, incredibly loud.
