    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 Takes Starry SNL to Season Ratings High (VIDEO)

    The opening monologue of Justin Timberlake's fifth turn hosting SNL started with the premise that the multi-talented charmer was now inducted into the "five-timers club" for people that have hosted the show on five or more occasions (linked below).

    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.)

    Andy Samberg's Tasteful Indie Spirit Awards Monologue, 'Bad Lip Reading,' 'Beast It' and Skype Audition Sketches [Video]

    Andy Samberg got it right. The SNL alum hosted Saturday night's Independent Spirit Awards, the penultimate show before Sunday's Oscars, and he led the evening with perfectly goofy candor.

    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...

    Highlights from Jennifer Lawrence's SNL Night: Inevitable 'Hunger Games' Parodies and Awards Show Send-Ups

    Oscar nominee Jennifer Lawrence's turn hosting Saturday Night Live was disappointing overall, but the actress did manage to dig up some laughs with a solid monologue despite poorly written material and a sea of missed opportunities. There was nothing on "Silver Linings Playbook" or "Winter's Bone," ...

    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 ...
