It'll be a good long while before 'SNL' takes to Studio 6H again this fall, its first season in years without veteran player Bill Hader. And while not every episode from the past season landed, particularly Justin Bieber's double-duty hosting gig, one "train wreck" of a sketch never made it through the dress rehearsal phase, and almost seriously injured Bieber in the process.
Last night's season finale of SNL was a huge deal. Not because Ben Affleck was hosting (although he was great), but because it was the final episode for Bill Hader and head writer/Weekend Update anchor Seth Meyers. The show had to send them off in style and that could only mean one thing: the final appearance of Stefon.
Earlier this week sad news broke that 'SNL' vet Bill Hader would depart the series after Saturday's upcoming finale with Ben Affleck and Kanye West, potentially taking fellow veterans Jason Sudeikis and Fred Armisen with him. Whoever goes, Ben Affleck's upcoming introduction into the five-timer's club looks to continue the streak from Kristen Wiig, so check out the first promos inside!
This past weekend's 'SNL' with Kristen Wiig drew heavily on nostalgia, but it seems we didn't know which performer's absence would truly soon be felt. In advance of the season finale with Ben Affleck and Kanye West, 'SNL' veteran Bill Hader has revealed his intent to leave the series, but who might also leave behind the late-night, sketch comedy?
Is there a recurring SNL sketch more divisive than "The Californians"? For everyone who loves it, there is someone else who thinks it's one of the worst things to ever happen to the show. The latest edition won't change any minds, but the return of Kristen Wiig does make it a little more special than the past couple of times they've trotted it out.
SNL knows that it is a good thing in Bill Hader's wonderfully deranged Al Pacino impression and they put it to good use on last night's episode, having the incredibly talented performer play Pacino playing multiple roles. Parodying Pacino's involvement in HBO films like 'You Don't Know Jack' and 'Phil Spector,' the sketch finds Hader's Pacino making HBO biopics where he plays every convicted murderer under the sun.
The first 'Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2' trailer has finally hit after the release of a snapshot or two, and a nail-biting countdown on Facebook. So what happened to the 'Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs' gang after Flint Lockwood's invention completely smothered his home island in giant-sized food? Where did they go? What happened with all that food? These questions will finally be answered with 'Cloudy 2,' dubbed 'Revenge of the Leftovers.'
We're pretty pumped for 'Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2,' partially due to the first poster that has recently hit. While the first film was a family friendly animated adventure, it was also a thoughtful exploration of scientific responsibility and a joke machine that crams more gags into every minute than most films have in their entire running time. So to continue our excitement into the sequel, check out this brand-new 'Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2' poster look.
There are few shows that beg for your eye rolls more than The CW's 'The Carrie Diaries,' a non-canonical prequel to 'Sex and the City' that follows a young Carrie Bradshaw as a student in the '80s. Naturally, the best way for SNL to take that show on is to view it through the lens of another classic HBO show. And that brings us to the sketch embedded below, titled 'Sopranos High.'
