    Melissa McCarthy Gives Physical Comedy a Good Name On SNL (Video)

    Even if you're not a fan of physical comedy - and I'm usually not - the brilliant Melissa McCarthy makes it hilarious and sophisticated. She began her latest SNL hosting gig by entering on sky-high, red-sequined platform heels, stumbling her way on stage in a routine that was also a goof on the ...

    Justin Timberlake's All-Star, All-Good SNL (Video)

    Justin Timberlake was totally aware of the high expectations for his hosting gig on SNL - "Thank you, Internet," he said during the monologue - but there was no need to worry. He was so on, he even gave just the right sly, I-know-it's-hokey reading to the line "Five Timers Club" when annou...

    Watch Justin Timberlake's 'SNL' Promo

    I don't believe in jinxes, so I'll flat-out say that nothing is a safer bet for fantastic television than Justin Timberlake hosting 'Saturday Night Live'. He's back this week, and even his promos are better than SNL's usually are (better than some of the sketches lately.)

    Justin Bieber Hosts SNL; Watch the Unaired Non-Bieber Sketch Instead

    Last night’s 'SNL' host was Justin .. . oh, how I wish I could say Timberlake, but No. It was Bieber, set loose among squealing audience members and a flood of predictable Bieber jokes. He wasn’t much as a comic, but he did go along wih a lot of Bieber-Playing-A-Dumb-Guy ske...

    SNL's Preview of The Next 18 Hobbit Movies (Video)

    Some people (and I‘ll never be one of them) can’t get enough of Perter Jackson’s Hobbit movies. SNL offers a preview of how Jackson plans to take advantage of that – split the next Hobbit installments into 18 different films: in one, Frodo forgets something back at the s...

    Pants On Fire: SNL Cold Open Takes on Lance Armstrong, Manil Te'o, Jodie Foster (Video)

    Jennifer Lawrence was a likable host on SNL, pretending to trash-talk her Oscar contenders, but the writers didn’t give her their sharpest material. There was a commercial for Silver Linings Playbook during the show, but no sketch about it – what a lost opportunity (although Jason ...

    Touching Kids' Chorus, F-Bombing Sam Jackson, McCartney And A Llama: SNL's Great Christmas

    Just as it did when the show returned after 9-11, Saturday Night Live found a way to eloquently acknowledge a tragedy and move on to comedy. In the eerie but appropriate cold open, the New York City Children’s Chorus sang “Silent Night,” with the line “sleep in heavenly pe...

    Anne Hathaway and SNL Do Homeland

    Someone at SNL really likes Homeland (don’t we all?) Last week, in their hurricane press-conference sketch, Mayor Michael Bloomberg explained to Spanish-speaking New Yorkers that white people were cranky because they were missing Homeland. This week, Anne Hathaway was at the center of a sketch...

    Daniel Day-Who? Louis C.K. Does Lincoln

    What if Louis C.K. had been cast in Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln instead of Daniel Day-Lewis? Or, as SNL had it, what if the character of Lincoln merged with the character from his television series Louie -- stand-up comic, acerbic observer of life, and in this case emancipator of slaves and pre...

    Obama, Romney and Tom Hanks in SNL's Debate

    Were all the “binders full of women” jokes used up? SNL’s debate sketch ignored the most popular satirical target from the last Presidential debate, focusing instead on the candidates' pugnacious attitudes, with the added attraction of Tagg Romney promising to punch the Pr...
