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.'
It's not really the holiday season without 'A Charlie Brown Christmas' playing on the TV in the background while your family catches up and/or argues, so it was inevitable that the Saturday Night Live crew would take aim at Charles Schultz's iconic creation in their Christmas special. Naturally, the best way to make fun of something as sweet and wholesome as Charlie Brown and his friends is to take it in the exact opposite direction. Hilarity ensues, etc.
