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!
'SNL''s acclaimed hosting gig with 'Scandal' star Kerry Washington may have made light of the racial controversy attached to the current season, tasking Washington with portraying a number of famous black female figures, though it seems the NBC sketch comedy series has in mind to correct the issue after all. Could a new black female comedienne join 'SNL' before the season is out?
We're midway through 'SNL''s December 2013 run after 'Anchorman 2' player Paul Rudd's star-studded turn with One Direction this past weekend, leaving 12-time host and 'Inside Llewyn Davis' star John Goodman up to bat with Kings of Leon. The first promos for Goodman's 13th 'SNL' turn have arrived, but will the unlucky number prove the repeat host's undoing?
Here's the weird thing about recurring 'SNL' characters and sketches: you may get tired or annoyed by them at the time, but ten years later, you'll just be longing for them. We didn't know how much we were missing the "Bill Brasky" sketches until last night, when the show brought the character back one more time. After all, when you have Will Ferrell in the house, you've got to revisit some of his classics.
When someone guest hosts 'SNL,' it's usually because they have something to promote. Even the great Paul Rudd doesn't host the show for no reason. The man has 'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues' coming out soon and he's got to keep the promotional train a'moving. Call this week's opening monologue a commercial if you want, but man, it's one heck of a commercial. Anything that lets us see Ron Burgundy's news team reunite to perform "Afternoon Delight" is worth the effort. Oh, and there's also that band One Direction because the kids like 'em.
