Lorne Michaels, as usual, will serve as executive producer, as he does on many projects from his SNL darlings. Also on board is Superstore executive producer Jackie Clarke. Thompson is the longest-running cast member on SNL and when he started

    Saturday Night Live recap: Jason Momoa is really hot, but is he funny? (Videos)

    We all know Jason Momoa is very hot. This week the Aquaman star hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time. It’s surprisingly more difficult when the host is a hot man. Not because hot men aren’t funny, but because the show often leans too heavily on the fact that they are stone cold hunks for jokes. Sometimes these jokes work, sometimes they don’t. It hinges on the host’s likeability.

    Why SNL’s Black Jeopardy sketch with Tom Hanks was perfect (VIDEO)

    Depending on what side of the political fence you’re on, you may be thinking that Saturday Night Live has been killing it so far this season. Their comedy coverage of the three presidential debates starring Kate McKinnon as Hillary Clinton and Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump (the last of which dropped this weekend, naturally during the latest episode’s cold open) and one vice presidential debate has been, in my opinion,

    ‘Saturday Night Live’ Seattle Seahawks Parody Better Than Key And Peele’s? Watch Video As ‘SNL’ Mocks Richard Sherman And Marshawn Lynch (VIDEO)

    After Saturday Night Live tackled the Deflategate controversy surrounding the New England Patriots last week, it was a given that they would mock the Pats’ Super Bowl opponent the day before the big game. So last night’s episode featured a spoof of perhaps the two most-talked-about players of the Seattle Seahawks, the chatty Richard Sherman and the media-defiant Marshawn Lynch. It came just days after Key & Peele produced a similar spoof for its Super

    Saturday Night Live’s Ferguson sketch was cut for time and that’s a shame. Watch it now.

    Though NBC claims a Ferguson sketch was “cut for time” from this past weekend’s Saturday Night Live, we can’t help but think it was cut because the network thought it might be too controversial to run on traditional television. Regardless of the reason, it’s a shame since the sketch is actually pretty great. Starring Cecily Strong and Kenan Thompson as forced-to-be-cheery St. Louis morning show hosts, the segment does a

    Saturday Night Live’s season 40 premiere was a disappointment so it can only get better, right?

    One of the most difficult forms of comedy to execute well is live sketch. I think even the most casual comedy consumers can agree on this. When you see live sketch comedy at a theater done well, it’s magical. When it’s bad, it’s not just bad– it’s excruciating to watch. And this is why I root for Saturday Night Live every year. I understand how impossible it is to deliver

    Lady Gaga is actually pretty funny in these Saturday Night Live promos (Video)

    Lady Gaga has made a career out of showcasing what mainstream America would consider “shocking” fashion and manufacturing “boundary pushing” stage shows. It’s nearly impossible to take her seriously as an artist, because, truly— what exactly is her art these days? She’s long since abandoned the singing chops and musical ability she had when she was just Stefani Germanotta and has since replaced those things with layers of makeup, fucked-up
