This past weekend's March 'SNL' premiere with first-time host Jim Parsons of 'The Big Bang Theory' proved something of a misfire, but a little awkwardness never scared off 'Girls' creator and star Lena Dunham. The always-buzzing HBO star officially hit the Studio 8H stage for her first round of 'SNL' promos, and if you're wondering if there's nudity, we saved you the trouble!
Everyone can agree that child actors are generally unbearable and drag down otherwise good movies. So what happens when you recast this year's Oscar nominees with a bunch of wooden, smiling and occasionally barely coherent kids? You get the Spotlightz! acting camp, which recreates some of the past year's most acclaimed films in unspeakably awful ways. Thanks for that, 'SNL.'
Snarky movie reviews are nothing new (especially in the cruel world of internet journalism), but few people can deliver bitter sarcasm and loathing quite like Taran Killam in the guise of an 1860s newspaper reporter named Jebediah Atkinson. Inexplicably torn out of his century and thrust onto the 'SNL' stage, Atkinson appeared on the latest Weekend Update to talk about the Oscars and proceeded to tear cinematic history a new one.
When you make a movie as emotionally draining and difficult to watch as '12 Years a Slave,' you're bound to make the vast majority of the people watching uncomfortable. After all, if people aren't upset by a film that tracks a man being dehumanized and treated as property, you're obviously doing something wrong. But if a film is that hard to watch, what was it like to make? Thankfully, 'SNL' is here to show us all of the nitty gritty details.
'SNL' finally returns tonight after its brief Winter Olympics hiatus! Jim Parsons from 'The Big Bang Theory' makes his debut on the 30 Rock stage as tonight's guest host, and after years of watching him yuk it up as mega nerd Sheldon on the hit sitcom, we're pretty interested to see him give us something a bit different -- or will he? Read on for our review of tonight's all-new episode of 'SNL'!
Yesterday brought a treat for 'SNL' fans with news that 'Girls' creator and star Lena Dunham would make her hosting debut with The National on March 8, but we've got one major debut to go first -- 'The Big Bang Theory' star Jim Parsons! The first promos have arrived for the multiple Emmy winner's hosting debut alongside musical guest Beck, and Bazinga! They're pretty great.
'SNL' scored major points in announcing its first March host as Jim Parsons of 'The Big Bang Theory,' while the second host of the long-running sketch comedy series' post-Olympics run will similarly score new blood. 'Girls' creator and star Lena Dunham will make her 'SNL' debut in the March 8 installment, alongside what musical guest, you ask?
We haven't heard much from 'SNL' since Melissa McCarthy hosted the pre-Super Bowl installment on February 1, but given NBC's coverage of the 2014 Winter Olympics, late night took an understandable back seat. Now, with the long-running sketch comedy series due to return on March 1, 'The Big Bang Theory' Emmy winner Jim Parsons will make his hosting debut!
A few days ago 'Late Night with Seth Meyers' delighted future audiences with news that Seth Meyers' former 'SNL' co-star Fred Armisen had signed on to lead the house band, and now it seems the new 'Late Night' has another beloved 'SNL' staple headed its way. Not only can we expect Bill Hader's revered "Stefon" to make appearances, but the first week's rounds of guests include everyone from Amy Poehler to Kanye West, Lena Dunham, Ian McKellen and more!
The sweeping changes to the late night landscape have only recently begun, with Jay Leno having said his goodbyes to 'The Tonight Show,' with Jimmy Fallon soon to take his place. Seth Meyers too, has left behind 'SNL' for his impending 'Late Night' gig, which we've now learned to feature fellow alumni Fred Armisen leading the band!
