    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. Everyone played along and the audience reaction shots were actually a pleasure to watch -- a contrast to Sunday ...

    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," ...

    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...

    The Real Brad Pitt Chanel Ad Vs. SNL's: Can You Tell the Difference?

    Just try to tell them apart. Brad Pitt’s recently unveiled commercial for Chanel No. 5 is so loaded with high-flown, nonsensical language that it out-parodies itself without any help from satirists. But SNL’s Taram Killam offers a very funny take on the commercial anyway, which incl...
