Saturday Night Live is gearing up for its 41st year in the late night schedule, and while there won’t be a ton of tweaks to the cast, the sketch comedy series has added one new name this week.
On Monday, NBC announced that Season 41 will kick off with a couple of fun female guests and the return of Tracy Morgan to television. That’s right, one of 30 Rock’s biggest funnymen is finally headed back to the small screen.
Things can get a little crazy when it comes to live TV. Things can also get crazy pretty much anytime Louis C.K. is involved. It turns out the man who closed out Saturday Night Live’s 40th Season this year has a history of butting heads with producer Lorne Michaels over his monologues.
Hader is probably still most known for Stefon, the oddball, flamboyant New York City correspondent on Weekend Update. This weekend, Hader shared the origins of the Stefon sketch, and they might not be exactly what you are picturing.
One of the most memorable bits took place during the all-star Weekend Update segment when Melissa McCarthy comes out as Chris Farley’s motivational speaker Matt Foley. And it turns out her spot-on appearance didn’t merely resemble Farley’s look.
As one of television’s most established series, Saturday Night Live has been a massive breeding ground for the comedy world. Here are the 9 most long-lasting cast members that SNL has put forth.
Last fall, Saturday Night Live made some changes to its lineup. Now, we’ve reached the end of Season 40, and Cecily Strong recently spoke out about the “Weekend Update” lineup change, and what bothered her the most regarding people’s reactions.
While there are some offended folks out there who probably thought Louis C.K.'s scathing monologue should have been cut, a digital sketch about joke plagiarism was excised instead. Good timing, SNL.
Last night, the SNL monologue showed that Louis C.K. brand of comedy you’ve either grown to love or hate. Watch as C.K. explores racism, the Middle East, and child molestation all in one bit.
Last year, it looked as if veteran cast member Kenan Thompson would be exiting stage left, but that was just a bad rumor, and he will indeed be back on stage for Season 41. Get your favorite sweaters ready for more Bill Cosby impressions!
Over the past 40 years, Saturday Night Live has taken its satire to some particularly dark and controversial places, in between all the silly stuff. Check out this particularly spot-on sketch mixing game shows and the prophet Muhammad.
Season 40 has been one for the ages for Saturday Night Live, which has seen some of the biggest stars of the big and small screen stop by for hosting duties. To be expected, the show is closing the season out with three major stars, including Reese Witherspoon and more.
Taraji P. Henson rocked the stage on Saturday Night Live last night, but one of her best sketches actually worked thanks to the inclusion of Sesame Street characters like Bert, Ernie, Snuffleupagus and Big Bird.
With the inner-workings of the Church of Scientology becoming a timely discussion with a new HBO documentary film, Saturday Night Live would take the opportunity to skewer its subject in a way that’s both direct, yet technically, indirect. Check it out in all its glazed-eyed glory before you sit down to John Hancock that billion year contract.
Saturday Night Live's Pete Davidson isn't necessarily known for being upbeat, chipper or bubbly. That's why it didn't come as a surprise when The Walking Dead's Norman Reedus, who dropped by the set last night, mistook him for a zombie.
