After tonight’s nightmare set of RNC speeches, someone apparently decided that the best way to top off the night would be to have Chris Matthews sit down with Saturday Night Live’s Michael Che and Colin Jost to talk about about black people. Welcome to our modern hell.
Cam Newton is the NFL’s newest MVP, and yet as much media coverage this season has been dedicated to his identity and expressions of it as it has his achievements on the field. Saturday Night Live took a run at the Panthers quarterback—and his Broncos counterpart, Peyton Manning—on tonight’s episode. Johnny Manziel…
Cranky human Larry David reprised his role of a lifetime on Saturday Night Live tonight, and since you enjoyed his turn as Vermont senator and presidential candidate Bernie Sanders last time, we’ll let you argue about how great/awful his impression is down there in the comments again.
Before you tweeted it Tuesday night, Saturday Night Live was thinking it: yeah, Senator Bernie Sanders does resemble Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm creator Larry David! So David turned up on tonight’s SNL cold open, managing the rare feat of overshadowing an Alec Baldwin cameo. We urge you all in the future to…
There’s an obscure 1994 Saturday Night Live sketch called “Pepper Boy” that at least one friend of Chris Farley’s now uses to explain the late comedian’s incredible talent. He didn’t have a huge part in that episode—apparently, he was too busy filming Tommy Boy. The laughs in this particular bit were supposed to go to…
Saturday Night Live acknowledged its likely low viewership up against Mayweather-Pacquiao by lampshading it in a cold open that purported to air a “pirate” feed of the fight. You probably didn’t see it, either! So here it is.
Tonight's 40th anniversary celebration of Saturday Night Live on NBC opened with a musical tribute to the variety show's most memorable moments, starring former cast member Jimmy Fallon and oft-host Justin Timberlake—who briefly brought back "Dick In A Box." (Uncensored, even, in prime time!) This special is bound to…
Tonight's Saturday Night Live cold open featuring "Richard Sherman" and a reticent-as-always "Marshawn Lynch" improved greatly over last week's weak Ballghazi-themed effort. Jay Pharoah pulls out a pretty solid attempt at Sherman's intensity.
Prince served as tonight’s SNL musical guest in one of the most anticipated appearances on NBC in recent memory. Here’s his balls-out, unprecedented eight-minute-long performance in its entirety; note that, for once, the Saturday Night Live sound mix sounds great.
Saturday Night Live opened its 40th season tonight with the NFL, as Kenan Thompson and Jay Pharoah took on the personas of Ray Lewis and Shannon Sharpe, respectively, attempting to respond to recent scandals involving Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson.
The Chicago Bears fired legendary coach Mike Ditka on Jan. 5, 1993, Four days later, in Saturday Night Live's cold open, the recurring "Super Fans" characters, famous supporters of "Da Bears," wrote a protest letter to the team, with Ditka himself making a cameo at the end. We've come across footage of him taping that…
Adam Silver, Donald Sterling, Dennis Rodman, and others made appearances in tonight's Saturday Night Live cold open, which didn't skewer the scandal involving the L.A. Clippers owner as much as it did make mildly amusing references to it.
Saturday Night Live's Kyle Mooney went to Super Bowl Boulevard to mumble and talk nonsense with people on the street, and it was delightful.
Did you enjoy Live From New York, the massive oral history of Saturday Night Live? Well, good news! An expanded edition of the book will be available this September.
Earlier in the week, the United States announced its delegation to Russia for the Sochi Olympics and it was pretty obviously a giant middle finger pointed at Moscow. Two openly-gay and one soon-to-be-openly-gay delegates were named to the delegation, including tennis Hall of Famer Billie Jean King. Saturday Night Live
Jay Pharoah is SNL's master impressionist, and although his Barack Obama may be a bit uninspiring, his Shannon Sharpe leaves nothing to be desired. Our only complaint has to do with his tie knot. That sucker needs to be much, much bigger.
Tonight's Saturday Night Live unleashed this parody just as the Michigan-Syracuse game was coming to its ugly end, so the Mike Rice-savvy audience out there may have missed it.
Last we checked in on Page 2's Lynn Hoppes, he was breathlessly name-dropping third-tier celebrities, en route to this whole thing. (Of note: ESPN has since pulled the offending Hoppes video from its YouTube account. Did Brock Lesnar's attorneys complain?) Hoppes is ESPN's expert in the macho-tinged puff piece, and…
