Not only did Kyle Mooney’s sketch actually make it to air this week, but he finally gave us another update on the life of Chris Fitzpatrick, aka every high school kid you knew who was into Nu Metal and rap-rock. So what’s Chris up to now? He started a metal band over the summer with a couple of his equally obnoxious friends, and they want to crowd-fund their new homemade action flick, Johnny Shadow.

Although Melissa McCarthy was the guest host on last night’s episode of SNL, the show found a great sketch in which to showcase musical guest Kanye West. Naturally, the sketch involves the always controversial hip hop artist facing down cast member Kyle Mooney, who decides to challenge West to a rap battle. Let’s just say that it doesn’t go well for one of them.

We still don’t know who will take the stage alongside Star Wars baddie and Girls star Adam Driver when SNL returns in 2016, but Season 41 has a belated Christmas gift to offer. Series star Kyle Mooney gets yet another cut sketch, awkwardly interviewing Justin Bieber fans in line for a performance.

Time and time again, the SNL cut-for-time sketches week to week have proven among the funniest, if weirdest the series has to offer, particularly at the hands of Kyle Mooney. Another deleted bit from Amy Poehler (and Tina Fey)’s 2015 closer doesn’t quite continue the trend, but “Christmas at Nana’s” is worth a watch all the same.

Sure, there are lots of kids and teens buying Star Wars: The Force Awakens toys, but a long, long time ago in a galaxy that is actually this one, Star Wars belonged to another group of nerds — and those nerds are not going to let today’s kids take ownership of their fandom so easily, especially when these kids don’t know that action figures should STAY. IN. THE. BOX.

SNL’s Hilariously Weird ‘90s Sitcom Returns in Cut for Time Gosling Sketch

Often under-appreciated (or left out entirely), SNL stars Kyle Mooney and Beck Bennett’s absurdly awkward ‘90s sitcom parodies have gotten better and better, and we can blame Ryan Gosling for the latest not making it to air. Both Family Matters and Saved By the Bell get their spot-on due in the latest cut-for-time SNL sketch, fresh from Saturday’s airing.

SNL Cut This Perfectly Hilarious Short Featuring Louis C.K. and Bruce Chandling

Every week, SNL ends up having to cut a sketch or two for time — these segments are released online as “digital exclusives.” Sometimes, those segments are better than anything else that aired, like this short that was cut from the Season 40 finale, featuring Louis C.K. and Kyle Mooney’s pitiful fictional comedian Bruce Chandling.

This past weekend's SNL with Birdman star Michael Keaton kept Dwayne Johnson's franchise viagra going strong, but will Taraji P. Henson make a true Empire out of the NBC sketch comedy's landmark 40th season? Find out in the slap-tastic first promos for this weekend's next SNL!

SNL’s Saturday return didn’t quite get everyone talking as much as the 40th anniversary special, but still left us with a few teasing bits to enjoy. Not only does a new deleted sketch reveal a first look at the 50 Shades of Grey sequel, but so too has cast vet Taran Killam come out in defense of the controversial ISIS sketch.

SNL and Dakota Johnson Take You to the Weirdest ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Press Junket

EDIT
by Jacob Hall March 1, 2015 @ 8:52 AM
With Dakota Johnson guest hosting, last night’s SNL had no shortage of 50 Shades of Grey jokes. For her part, Johnson seemed equally bemused and embarrassed by her controversial new hit, rolling with whatever the show threw at her and always coming out looking far better than her naysayers expected. Her ability to make fun of herself and the film that has turned her into an overnight movie star really came together in the only sketch of the night that required her to play herself.
