'SNL' made something of a curious choice in picking rap artist Drake for their first host of 2014, acting as both ringleader and musical guest for the evening, but the long-running NBC sketch comedy series' second choice of the year feels much more on point. 'Wolf of Wall Street' and '22 Jump Street' star Jonah Hill will return to the 'SNL' stage on January 25, but who will join as musical guest?
'SNL' certainly closed out 2013 right with Jimmy Fallon as host and Justin Timberlake returning as musical guest, an even episode that saw some of the long-running NBC sketch comedy series' best ratings in years, but will the first 2014 installment enter on the same high note? Learn who the first host and musical guest for 'SNL' will be in 2014!
It's a situation that virtually every couple with a healthy, long term relationship has faced. You and your loved one go home to visit the family and find yourself forced to sleep in your childhood room, most likely on the tiny twin bed that was barely tolerable when you were half your current size. Since this is a 'SNL' sketch, this predicament takes the form of music video, where the ladies of the show invite their men for some sexy time on a bed that has no business being the location of an, uh, adult encounter.
Since 2003, the "Barry Gibb Talk Show" sketches on 'SNL' have popped up whenever Justin Timberlake or Jimmy Fallon have appeared on the show, with Fallon playing Bee Gees lead singer Bary Gibb and Timberlake taking on his brother, Robin Gibb. The last time we saw these characters was in 2011 and its return seemed unlikely following the death of Robin Gibb in 2012. However, the sketch made its big return last night and it brought a handful of surprise cameos along for the ride.
Few guest performers seem to get 'SNL' quite like Justin Timberlake, who has a wonderful habit of showing up on the stage and creating classic sketches and characters with seemingly no effort. In most cases, he would easily overshadow the actual guest host, but when that guest host is show alum (and current late night superstar) Jimmy Fallon, there is less overshadowing and more comedic awesomeness.
'SNL' veteran Jimmy Fallon returns to the 30 Rock stage tonight for a very special episode -- that's right, we're just a few days away from Christmas, it's the last episode of 'SNL' of the year, and Justin Timberlake is the musical guest, so we're sure Fallon and the crew have all kinds of surprises in store tonight! We can't wait to see what -- or who -- might pop up on tonight's all new episode. Will Fallon fall back into his old habit of cracking up mid-sketch? Will Horatio Sanz make an appearance? Read on for our recap and review of the last 'SNL' of 2013!
John Goodman may have coasted in his 13th 'SNL' installment this past weekend, but has the year-ender ever let us down? Alumni and future 'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon's latest promos have arrived, but with musical guest Justin Timberlake delayed by weather, can we expect a satisfying closer this year?
You don't have to be a foodie to know that Guy Fieri is one of the worst things to happen to televised cooking entertainment (and food in general), so the platinum-haired douche bag of the Food Network is the perfect guy to skewer on 'SNL' and the show doesn't pull its punches. Fieri isn't even the main target: his viewers and everything else they watch get torn to shreds.
It's not every day that an actor of John Goodman's caliber hosts 'SNL,' but whatever the odds, it's not nearly as uncommon as him being joined by Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro for a holiday-themed sketch that sees the three silver screen icons re-imagined as tough-talking guys on the way to visit the baby Jesus. Yep, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas ...
On tonight's all-new episode of 'SNL,' John Goodman returns to the 30 Rock stage to host for the 13th time! It's hard to believe, we know, but we're really excited for Goodman, who's on hand tonight in anticipation of the Coen Brothers' 'Inside Llewyn Davis.' But we're even more excited after the ups and downs of the season -- surely a total 'SNL' veteran host like Goodman will bring the, um, goods (pardon the pun). So how did he do? Read on for our full recap and review!
