    Mike Bloomberg, Chris Christie and Some Jersey Hand Gestures (SNL Video)

    I wonder how this will play outside New York and New Jersey, but if you’ve been watching Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s press briefings you know that his sign language interpreter has become a minor celebrity. SNL’s cold open did a brilliant take on Bloomberg and New Jersey Governo...

    SNL and the Post-Debate Fallout (The Horror, The Horror!)

    It’s a good thing SNL had the presidential debate as fodder, because they absolutely wasted Daniel Craig. And while Jay Pharoah continues to struggle with his Obama impression (why the grimace? Obama doesn’t channel Denzel Washington) the sketches included a very funny, perfectly&nd...

    SNL's Lost Bond Girls, From Annie Hall to Penny Marshall

    Daniel Craig was game as host of SNL, but he was seriously underused and put into some of the worst-written sketches in recent memory, including an excruciatingly long one in which he was a construction worker with a mangled vocabulary of cat calls. He had better material – but not much m...

    SNL: Jay Pharoah Takes On Obama, But Sudeikis' Romney Steals the Scene (Video)

    The best SNL political impersonations capture some essential truth about that person’s character, hilariously exaggerated: Darrell Hammond’s gleeful,hound dog Clinton, Will Ferrell’s squinty-eyed doofus W. spouting words like “strategery.” Fred Armisen’s Obam...

    Watch Mick Jagger, Jon Hamm, Foo Fighters in Spectacular SNL Season Finale

    Mick Jagger was host of one of the best SNL’s of the season, a high-energy finale that relied on Jagger’s persona and was fueled by so much nostalgia that it seemed like classic rock, with Jagger doing "19th Nervous Breakdown" with Foo Fighters, "The Last Time" w...

    Will Ferrell And Jason Sudeikis Give Us the Secret George W. and Biden

    It would take a lot more than a Will Ferrell impression to make me want George W. Bush to return for real, but Ferrell’s always hilarious fake-Bush was the highlight of last night’s SNL. In the cold open, President Obama (Fred Armisen, as usual) entered the bedroom of the Vice Presi...

    Jimmy Fallon And Friends Go to Downton Abbey (Video)

    Just when you’ve gotten through Downton Abbey withdrawal, here’s another parody to remind you of what’s missing from television: Jimmy Fallon and friends from Studio 6B give us Downton Sixbey. In the spirit of Jersey Floor, it sounds like a recurring Late Night series, which w...
