On last night's episode of Saturday Night Live, Melissa Villaseñor appeared on Weekend Update wearing a white suit and blond wig for her "famous Grammy preview."

Adam Driver Hosting ‘Saturday Night Live’ Season 44 Premiere, Three Featured Players Promoted

Saturday Night Live has two levels of cast members. Either you’re a full-fledged repertory player, or you’re a featured member of the cast, which basically means your involvement in the show is renewed on a season-by-season basis. Every season, there’s a chance that a featured player gets fired (like Luke Null recently did), or gets promoted to the regular cast. And three featured players just got that coveted promotion. But more importantly, we just found out that Adam Driver will be hosting t...

Donald Glover Sings, Stalks, Plays Lando & Defends ‘Jurassic World’ on a Stellar ‘Saturday Night Live’

This weekend brought Donald Glover to Saturday Night Live to make his debut as both host and musical guest (under his Childish Gambino hip-hop moniker). Glover is no stranger to NBC having starred in Community and written for 30 Rock, but he also auditioned for SNL a couple times. And when you see how well he does in this outstanding episode of SNL, you’re going to wonder why he never made the cut as a cast member. Donald Glover was a fantastic host, playing a wide variety of characters, includ...

Watch SNL’s Random Nickelback Fan Deathbed Sketch

Nickelback have basically become a walking punchline, but they still have their defenders. The Smashing Pumpkins' Billy Corgan, for one, has called Chad Kroeger an "incredible songwriter," and hits like "This Is How You Remind Me" and "Photograph" may or may not actually be really good songs. Another prominent defender? Saturday Night Live, … More »

Chance the Rapper Hosts the Best ‘Saturday Night Live’ of Season 43 So Far

That’s right. Out of the six episodes of Saturday Night Live we’ve had so far, the best episode of the season wasn’t hosted by a huge movie star or a popular comedian. Instead it was hosted by chart-topping hip-hop artist Chance the Rapper, who makes the case for his own career in comedy effortlessly. Chance the Rapper has taken to the stage in Studio 8H before a a musical guest on SNL, but this was his first time hosting the show. While he seemed a little nervous at the top of the show, he gra...

If Alec Baldwin Stops Playing Donald Trump, What Will ‘Saturday Night Live’ Do?

(Welcome to The Soapbox, the space where we get loud, feisty, and opinionated about something that makes us very happy…or fills us with indescribable rage. In this edition: how should Saturday Night Live deal with Donald Trump if Alex Baldwin leaves the part?) Saturday Night Live has garnered plenty of attention lately thanks to their skewering of Donald Trump and his incompetent administration in the White House. During the campaign season last year, when it was almost inconceivable that the f...

The Best & Worst Sketches from Octavia Spencer’s ‘Saturday Night Live’

Saturday Night Live came back this weekend for their first episode of March. Hosting duties fell upon the shoulders of Oscar winner Octavia Spencer. While the actress appeared to be up to the challenge, the writing staff didn’t really seem to meet her in the middle. The result was a mostly mediocre episode with some bumpy and poorly paced sketches. The only exceptions were a couple of pre-recorded sketches, one great live sketch, and an outstanding round of Weekend Update. We runt through the b...
