Few jokes are as tired as "New Year's resolutions are hard!", but at least the latest episode of 'SNL' presented a joke as creaky as this in the form of a music video, which gives it far more life than it deserves. We don't know if "Resolution Revolution" will be a viral sensation like some of the show's past video sketches (probably not), but it's pretty funny and pretty darn catchy.
'SNL' finally returns from its long winter nap tonight with an all-new episode and a very special guest. Hip-hop artist Drake drops in to act as both host and musical guest, and just in case you were worried he might not hack it in the acting department, we'll remind you that once upon a time he starred on a little Canadian teen show called 'Degrassi.' We're keeping our fingers crossed for that 'Degrassi' sketch, 'SNL.' Don't let us down! New cast member Sasheer Zamata also makes her debut tonight, so we're pretty excited about that, too. So how did Drake and the new recruit do? Read on for our review of tonight's all-new 'SNL'!
We like to imagine that most folk would be busy with preparations for the big game even late into Saturday night, but 'SNL' will have an MVP of its own come Super Bowl weekend. 'The Heat' star Melissa McCarthy will make her third hosting turn on the 'SNL' stage come February 1, but who will join as musical guest?
'SNL' certainly earned a bit of good faith in its commitment to addressing the racial diversity of the current 39th season cast, most recently confirming black female performer Sasheer Zamata as the newest addition to the featured players, but it seems the changes haven't stopped there. Two more women of color have joined the team, adding fellow auditioners LaKendra Tookes (above left) and Leslie Jones (above right) to the writing staff.
What, you thought Jonah Hill's third hosting gig was the 'SNL' news of the day? Nope! At long last, after a heated controversy and a nationwide search, the long-running NBC sketch comedy series has found its newest black female cast member in Upright Citizen's Brigade veteran Sasheer Zamata.
'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.
