‘SNL’ and Anna Kendrick Pay Tribute to ‘Beauty and the Beast’ With the Opening Monologue

snl bonjour

There was no way 'SNL' was going to get 'Pitch Perfect' star Anna Kendrick to host without giving her a big musical number, and the show got it over and done with early on. In her opening monologue, Kendrick talked about her musical theater roots and how good it felt to be on a New York Stage of any kind before breaking into a fantastic parody of "Bonjour" from Disney's 'Beauty and the Beast.'

‘SNL’ Deleted Sketch: Louis C.K. Plays a Klingon With a Very Unusual Poster Collection

louis ck trek

When an episode of 'SNL' is produced, countless sketches are pitched, but only a small number of pitches are written, and then even few written sketches are accepted. And then even fewer scripts actually make the finished show with several often being cut during dress rehearsal for a variety of reasons. The video above gives us a look into how the 'SNL' sausage is made -- it's a sketch that was cut before the final airing, starring guest host Louis C.K. as a 'Star Trek' villain who really loves his posters of shirtless humans.

‘SNL’ Scorecard: Louis C.K. May or May Not Have a Darth Vader Up His Butt

So, yes, welcome to 'SNL' Scorecard’s third official home (we started way back in 2010 at Movieline before moving to HuffPost) and I hope everyone found their way over here okay? There's a new graphic! Anyway, can we dispense with the introductions now because that’s not why you’re here? Great, moving on…

What an interesting show this was! It certainly wasn’t the best show of the season – though it just might have had the best sketch – but there were a lot of oddities last night. And oddities are a good thing, as opposed to just the parade of current popular culture references that seemed to litter the first half of this season. Louis C.K. returns for his second hosting gig – and C.K. is an interesting host because (A) he’s good and (B) he’s been, let’s say, known to give up on a sketch when he knows it’s not working. (Remember when he sandbagged the “Mountain Pass” sketch?) And last night we finally did learn if Louis C.K. has a Darth Vader action figure up his butt. Anyway, let’s get to the Scorecard…

‘SNL’ Wants You to Vote For Chris Fitzpatrick For Class President

snl chris

'SNL' has gotten a lot of mileage out of truly weird and intentionally cheap-looking video sketches over this past season or so, but none have been as weird or as deliriously, giddily cheap as last night's bit featuring Kyle Mooney as a high school douchebag attempting to run for high school president.

‘SNL’: Louis C.K. Goes to His Doctor’s Office For a Weird ‘Star Wars’ Problem

snl doctor

When you get Louis C.K. to host 'SNL,' there's bound to be at least one sketch that perfectly fits his specific brand of comedy, which tackles reality using surrealism and absurdity. One sketch from last night's episode felt like the perfect halfway point between an episode of C.K.'s FX comedy 'Louie' and a typically crass 'SNL' skit, making it too weird to even consider ignoring.

‘SNL’ Presents the Buddy Cop Television Classic “Dyke and Fats”

snl dykes and fats

When 'SNL' targets television shows, their targets tend to be modern (or at least based on some iconic celebrity). So it was a pleasant and weird surprise when the show went completely retro with a fake commercial for an old show called "Dyke and Fats," a buddy cop series starring two female police officers with very unfortunate nicknames.

‘SNL’: Watch Louis C.K.’s Hilarious Opening Monologue

snl louis ck

If you put a professional stand-up comic on a stage, he's going to want to perform. Did anyone actually expect 'SNL' guest host Louis C.K. to play along with any opening monologue idea that wasn't just eight minutes of hilarious comedy carefully culled from whatever he's working on at the moment? After all, C.K. is funny and he knows a good self-promotion opportunity when he sees it.

Where two years ago comedian and 'Louie' star Louis C.K. had his first 'SNL' hosting and promos marred by the onset of Hurricane Sandy, his March 29 return looks to be much smoother sailing. The first promos for this Saturday's 'SNL' return have arrived, wherein the revered comedian jokes with Kenan Thompson about his 'Louie' "character," and the initials of his last name.

'SNL' hit something a of a rough patch this past March with a weak Jim Parsons hosting installment and only a slight improvement for 'Girls' creator and star Lena Dunham, but already the April 2014 run of the long-running sketch comedy series sounds pitch perfect. Following Louis C.K.'s March 29 return, 'Pitch Perfect' favorite Anna Kendrick will make her hosting debut with musical guest Pharrell, followed by 'Neighbors' star Seth Rogen.
