The 10 Best 'SNL' Sketches of the 2013/2014 Season

by Mike Ryan May 19, 2014 @ 2:16 PM
The 39th season of 'Saturday Night Live' is over. From the beginning, it was a strange season -- gone were so many of the show's powerful voices: Hader, Samberg, Wiig, Sudeikis, Armisen -- yet this allowed new voices to be heard. And that's the thing about being new on 'SNL': not everything is going to hit. But, in compiling this list of the ten best sketches from the 2013-2014 season, there were some tough choices to be made (sorry, 'Bugs'). And, sadly, for inclusion, the sketch had to have actually appeared on the live show (sorry, 'Wing').
And, yes, this list is heavy with prerecorded material as opposed to live performances. (Perhaps it's not completely fair to compare, but, this is a testament of just how strong the prerecorded sketches are in a post-'Digital Short' world.) And it's also notable that none of the best sketches were recurring sketches (though, I could see at least one of these coming back next season). So, behold: The ten best sketches from this past season of 'Saturday Night Live.'

See the Cast of 'Rounders' Then and Now

by Britt Hayes March 13, 2014 @ 3:00 PM
Released in 1998, 'Rounders' starred then-rising stars Matt Damon and Edward Norton as two best friends who enter the world of underground high-stakes poker to make enough money to pay off their large debts, but soon find themselves way in over their heads. Though it wasn't a huge success at the time, 'Rounders' went on to become a cult classic thanks to the growing popularity in poker tournaments around the world. Sixteen years later, we revisit the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.

'SNL' Turns Halloween Avenger in Deleted "Don't Smash My Pumpkin" Sketch

by Kevin Fitzpatrick October 28, 2013 @ 11:40 AM
As expected, this past weekend's 'SNL' installment featuring 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' star Edward Norton in his first hosting gig with musical guest Jenelle Monae proved largely uneven, though not without a few truly inspired bits. Sadly not among them was 'SNL's Halloween ballad "Don't Smash My Pumpkin," the deleted scene of which has made its way online.

'SNL' and Edward Norton Create a Wes Anderson Horror Movie

by Jacob Hall October 27, 2013 @ 8:56 AM
Wes Anderson's incredibly distinctive style has been parodied before, but rarely with the skill that 'SNL' and host Edward Norton displayed in the most recent episode of everyone's favorite comedy variety show. A pre-recorded bit, the fake trailer for 'The Midnight Coterie of Sinister Intruders,' imagines what an Anderson-directed horror movie would look like and the results are near perfect.

Edward Norton hosts an all-new episode of 'SNL' tonight, and though he hasn't starred in a film since last year's 'The Bourne Legacy,' it's great to see him on the 30 Rock stage.

Mileage definitely varied on 'SNL' this past weekend with Bruce Willis' first hosting stint since 1989, though amid all the "Boy Dance Parties" and centaurs, we were in for one definite bright spot. Upcoming 'Grand Budapest Hotel' star and former 'Hulk' Edward Norton will host 'SNL' for the first time on October 26, with musical guest Janelle Monae.

by Mike Sampson May 8, 2013 @ 8:50 AM
Two of our favorite things on the internet are the Zach Galifianakis 'Between Two Ferns' and The Lonely Island web shorts. They are equal parts hilarious. But what if we told you that 'Between Two Ferns' and The Lonely Island teamed up for one massive video about music, spring break and gay marriage starring James Franco and Ed Norton? It's hard to describe but you're just going to have to watch for yourself because it's hilarious.
