Last night's ‘SNL’ was like a checklist of every possible and necessary Woody Harrelson joke.

With Woody Harrelson guest-hosting ‘SNL,’ it was inevitable that the show would break out the ‘True Detective’ jokes at some point.

As if we hadn't seen 'The Hunger Games' or 'True Detective' mocked enough, 'SNL' will take an official turn with one of the major stars. Woody Harrelson has been reaped from the existing pool of victors to host 'SNL' a third time later on in November, with fellow repeat star and musical guest Kendrick Lamar.
It was revealed not too long ago that Lorde would not only be contributing a new song for the 'Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1' soundtrack, but also curating the entire album.
