Only the second most exciting 'SNL' news of the week, this Saturday will see Jim Carrey returning to the stage for a third time alongside pop star Iggy Azalea. Ostensibly the show's Halloween episode, take at look at Jim Carrey's murderous and impression-heavy round of 'SNL' promos with Aidy Bryant!
If you went to some kind of comedy university, there would probably be an entire class available on the subject of how awkward white people rapping is inherently pretty funny but difficult to pull off without feeling too hacky. Whether or not 'SNL' pulled it off with last night's "Booty Rap" sketch is something we'll let you decide, but at least guest host Chris Pratt and the always reliable Aidy Bryant attack their material with gusto.
The 40th season of ‘Saturday Night Live’ has arrived (as well as the fifth season of ‘SNL’ Scorecard -- and I just can’t believe I’ve been doing this for five years) and, boy, what a difference a year makes. Last year’s season premiere featured six new cast members and was one of the clumsiest shows in recent memory. (Hey, remember ‘New Cast Member Or Member of Arcade Fire’? Gah.) This season, we have two new cast members and, more importantly, a significantly smaller cast. This was the first ‘SNL’ in over a year where I felt some actual intimacy with the cast. Look at newcomer Pete Davidson: he was everywhere! It was almost as if this incarnation of ‘SNL’ was built just to make us forget about last season. It didn’t completely work (I’ll never forget you, Rick Shoulders), but with a first-time host like Chris Pratt (who is a natural) and what feels like a much more focused show, this was a really great start.
This past weekend's 'SNL' with first-time host Andrew Garfield brought some exceptionally weird, if memorable skits, so will 'A Million Ways to Die in the West' star Charlize Theron fare any better in her first outing in over a decade? Find out in the first promos, as Charlize shows Taran some of her wild west stunts, and faces Aidy Bryant's revenge, like ya do.
Last week's 'SNL' installment significantly raised the bar for the 2014 season with the hosting debut of 'Pitch Perfect' player Anna Kendrick, but can 'Neighbors' star Seth Rogen keep the same standard of quality with his third hosting turn, alongside musical guest Ed Sheeran? Find out in the first 'SNL' promos for this Saturday's latest, alongside first-time promo maker Aidy Bryant!
Over the course of the last couple months, 'Satuday Night Live' has lost at least three cast members, with Kristen Wiig, Andy Samberg, and Abby Elliot out the door, and with a fourth, Jason Sudeikis, all but saying he wasn't coming back. Those are some shoes to fill, and it looks like they're bringing in some new kids.
