Peter Dinklage hosting last night’s SNL meant that the upcoming sixth season of Game of Thrones hung over the entire evening like a specter. Even when the show wasn’t specifically calling out and calling upon HBO’s series, you were constantly aware of it. After all, why else would Dinklage be hosting the show at this specific time? But when the show did turn its aim on Game of Thrones, it was on-point with an opening monologue where Dinklage asks A Song of Ice and Fire author George R.R. Martin to write some jokes.

Naked & Afraid is an actual reality show that just began its fifth season on the Discovery Channel, but it sounds so much like something that was cooked up in the SNL writers’ room that you can be forgiven for thinking it’s entirely a gag. The premise is patently ridiculous: two strangers are thrown into the wild without clothing or supplies and must survive for 21 days. But SNL has devised a “celebrity” edition of the show and they tossed guest host Peter Dinklage and the incredible Leslie Jones into it.
With Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage hosting SNL, there was no way the show wasn’t going to parody HBO’s beloved fantasy series in some way. After all, this wouldn’t be the first time SNL has taken on the most popular tale of intrigue and violence and dragons and sex. But you’ve got to give the writers credit — creating a fake “making-of” featurette is a fresh concept, especially since past sketches have been more straightforward riffs on this material.
With Game of Thrones Season 6 just within our grasp, Peter Dinklage drops by Studio 8H for his SNL hosting debut. You may recall his hilarious cameo as Peter Drunklage with Bobby Moynihan's Drunk Uncle back in 2013, but that was only a hint of the greatness Dinklage brought to his first proper SNL appearance. Everyone brings their A-game to this week's brilliant, hilariously absurd show, which made ranking the sketches pretty difficult — but hey, I still tried. Read on for our ranking of this week's SNL sketches from best to worst (hey, they weren't all great).
Following a few weeks’ rest, SNL will spring ahead with Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage making his first official hosting turn, and you know what spring means: Winter is coming. You know, eventually. In a roundabout sense. Anyway, the first official promos are here!
Game of Thrones may have played coy with Peter Dinklage’s Tyrion by the first Season 6 trailer, but the half-man will host full time when April offers its first SNL. The erstwhile Peter Drunklage has booked his first official SNL hosting, just weeks ahead of the Game of Thrones premiere.
Game of Thrones brought us all to life with its first full trailer for Season 6, teasing a certain Snow-y resurrection and plenty of new deaths for Westeros alike. We couldn’t help diving way deeper into every frame of footage, so what secrets of Game of Thrones Season 6 were hidden in the flames?
They warned us we’d be teased, and Game of Thrones Season 6 wasn’t kidding around. The first footage teaser for the new 2016 season has arrived with HBO’s Vinyl, bringing back some majorly familiar faces, but has the big Jon Snow question finally been answered at last?
If you weren’t quite sure what to make of The Boss after that green band trailer debuted, then maybe this new red band trailer will give you a better of idea of what Melissa McCarthy & Co. are up to in her latest comedy. Like the underwhelming Tammy before it, The Boss was also written by McCarthy and her husband, Ben Falcone, and while that has us feeling a bit skeptical, there’s something that feels more lively about this film — or maybe it’s just all that profanity.
Early Thursday, HBO’s attempt to alleviate our Game of Thrones Season 6 suffering with 20 new photos ended up a bit garbled by the pressure on their servers, and now we may know why. Even more photos have emerged from the landmark sixth season, some of which could well reveal some major plot points for George R.R. Martin’s books.
