NBC's live presentation of 'The Sound of Music' was one of the stranger and, depending on who you talk to, more disastrous television events of 2013, so it's only natural that 'SNL' went after it in last night's cold open. But this wasn't just an excuse to make fun of their parent network's weird programming decisions -- it was an opportunity to bring back one of the show's most beloved performers and characters.
Some of the best 'SNL' parodies have been specific enough to invite confusion amongst some people and we imagine that their fake trailer for 'White Christmas' will go right over the heads of certain people. But who cares? This is the best fake 'SNL' movie trailer since, well, their Wes Anderson horror movie trailer. How can anyone hate this season when they have that going for them?
On tonight's all-new episode of 'SNL,' Paul Rudd returns to the stage for his third outing as host -- this time around, he's promoting 'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues,' which has us excited for the possibility of some very special additional guests. Things have been looking up for 'SNL' this season, and with Rudd on board (who touts some pretty solid comedic chops, given his time spent with guys like Will Ferrell and David Wain), this should make for a pretty great evening. So how did he do? Read on for our review!
For the first time in years, there was no real star among the cast. But, despite all that, 'SNL' proved resilient and continued to deliver some truly hilarious sketches. We took a look back at the past year to find the absolute 10 best 'SNL' skits of 2013
Following a less-than-stellar outing with 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' star Josh Hutcherson and a holiday break, 'SNL' will return this weekend with its first of three major December installments. This time out, the sketch comedy show will return 'Anchorman' star Paul Rudd to the stage for his third hosting duty and his first alongside UK sensation One Direction.
'SNL' digital shorts are often at their best when they simply throw any and all realism to the wind and embrace complete and total absurdism. Last night's episode featured one of the show's strangest sketches ever, a bit that felt radically different than just about everything else in the episode.
On tonight's all-new episode of 'SNL,' 'Hunger Games: Catching Fire' star Josh Hutcherson stops by to host -- presumably because Jennifer Lawrence is a bit too busy. Not that we're complaining! It's Hutcherson's first time on the 30 Rock stage and we can't wait to see what the night has in store. We're sure 'SNL' will pay, uh, tribute to 'The Hunger Games' in some fashion. Read on for our review of tonight's episode!
Excited as we are to see 'The Hunger Games' star Josh Hutcherson volunteer as tribute this coming weekend, we had to wonder who 'SNL' would recruit for its December run. That answer has finally arrived with a resounding Paul Rudd, John Goodman, and a dual feature with 'SNL' alum Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake, not to mention the musical guests!
'SNL''s first turn with 'ArtPop' sensation Lady Gaga as host proved surprisingly capital, but will the same hot streak continue with 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' star Josh Hutcherson? The first promos for J-Law's futuristic co-star have arrived, and if you've ever wanted to see the 21-year-old star punched in the face, this weekend's 'SNL' is for you!
We were mostly enamored of Lady Gaga's dual turn as both 'SNL' host and musical guest this past weekend, most of the sketches landing with far more commitment than the initial promo that preceded them, but we haven't seen it all yet. Watch Lady Gaga lead the ladies of the 'SNL' cast as "Female Sea Captains" in a deleted sketch from this past weekend!
