Cameron Diaz returns to SNL with a hysterical new rap spoof along with the rest of her posse as the rap group “Your Girls” drops their newest single. This time they tackle returning home for the holidays with their cut “Back Home Ballers.”
It’s difficult to believe that SNL is already partway through its 40th season on NBC. The show has seen many hosts and musical guests give live TV a shot over the years, and on Thursday, the network announced the latest round of hosts and musical guests headed to Studio 8H.
After Saturday Night Live finishes shooting each week, the show always puts on a large party for the cast members, crew, writers, host, close friends and family members.

SNL hits a home run of a sketch about Mayor De Blasio's new marijuana policy. Woody Harrelson leads the pack in the hysterical 4 minute clip.
ABC’s Shark Tank has seen a lot of strange and stupid business models come and go over the years, but nothing like the business that popped up in Saturday Night Live’s spoof of the hit show this weekend. That’s right, this week, SNL mocked Shark Tank in a sketch that includes host Chris Rock playing an ISIS Agent.
Woody Harrelson has been tapped to host the November 15 episode of Saturday Night Live. Expect no end of Hunger Games or True Detective parodies.
It rarely happens, but this week’s Saturday Night Live episode is actually featuring a musical guest that many people are more stoked about than the host. Kenan Thompson knows it, and deep down, host Chris Rock knows it, too. Check out these Prince-oriented SNL promos.
NBC’s Saturday Night Live has been good at spoofing pop culture for quite some time, and this weekend proved to be no exception. Dumb and Dumber To star Jim Carrey popped up as the host this week, and he opted to take on a sketch that poked fun at none other than Matthew McConaughey.
If you've been watching Saturday Night Live's current season, chances are, you've already seen the long-running sketch comedy's latest casting addition. Leslie Jones, who's been featured on "Weekend Update," and a recent sketch, has been added to Saturday Night Live's Season 40 cast as a featured player.
Over the years, Saturday Night Live has written plenty of sketches that haven’t made it to the live airing. Veteran SNL writer Robert Smigel told Live From New York biographers James Andrew Miller and Tom Shales that there was one political sketch that President Barack Obama actually got cut.
Saturday Night Live brought former cast member Bill Hader back to host the late night sketch series this past weekend. The episode was filled with a few new gems, as well as the return of Stefan and much, much more. In fact, the episode was so jam-packed that a sketch featuring Hader called “Coal Miners” was cut by NBC for time.
Bill Hader made his triumphant return to Saturday Night Live last night, and while he kicked ass per usual, the real winner was actually Dan Cortese. Known to some as Seinfeld’s Mimbo and to others as a former MTV VJ, the ultimate loveable bro was referenced as a part of every single club Stefon mentioned last night
Bill Murray is still famous for the years he spent on Saturday Night Live and he’s obviously kept tabs on the show that made him a household name in the years since he first appeared.
