SNL fails, even with well-loved Anna Faris as host

SNL fails, even with well-loved Anna Faris as host

If you combined all the great sketches from the first four episodes of Saturday Night Live this season you would have yourself one damn funny episode of Saturday Night Live. Unfortunately, the gems have been spread over four weeks. And that, my friends, makes for a mostly-painful viewing experience each Saturday. Coming off last week's mediocre-to-slightly-bad episode, more...


Can a new TV show re-launch Craig Kilborn’s comedy career?

Can a new TV show re-launch Craig Kilborn’s comedy career?

When I was in college I became addicted to Comedy Central. The main cause of my obsessive behavior was the newly launched Daily Show; its host, young shavers, was Craig Kilborn, a dude who got popular as one of those hip SportsCenter guys. Years later when I heard Kilborn was leaving and being replaced by Jon Stewart, I was all like, “But I love Kilborn. The show’s more...

Community, I can’t stay mad at you. It’s no secret that last week’s mean-spirited dud got my goat and that the season as a whole has got my whatever the word is for a group of goats. So when I saw the teaser to this week’s episode, my hopes shot up: “Troy and Abed’s housewarming party turns into a surreal, postmodern world with parallel realities.” A peek more...

You probably know actress Julie Bowen as controlling mother Claire Dunphy on Modern Family. But did you know she’s a controlling mother in real life? Well, that fact came out loud and clear on last night’s Tonight Show with Jay Leno, when she admitted she doesn’t like her children using her Emmy statue as a golf tee. That's bullshit. My brother and I exclusively more...

Watch Anna Faris reveal her “sexy” Halloween costume in new SNL promo

By the time this week's Saturday Night Live airs, What's Your Number? will have been in theaters across the country for three weeks. From a marketing standpoint, it's not exactly the best time for Anna Faris, the star of said movie, to host the show this Saturday. But hosting SNL isn't just about publicity and promotion, right? It's about helping make the show be the best more...

Comedy Matters doesn’t only talk about comics. It talks about the people who make the comedy world what it is, a wonderful place to be! Chris Mazzilli, owner of Gotham Comedy Club, is a special kind of guy and a very charitable man. I don't think it's any accident that there are so many charitable events at Gotham. Laugh for Sight is a national charity which raises more...

News item #1: Ron’s mustache is back! News item #2: City Council candidate Leslie Knope has written a book! It’s called Pawnee: The Greatest Town In America and she is promoting the everloving crap out of it. Let’s hop onto the book tour heard ‘round the world. (Or something. Whatever, it has something to do with Paul Revere.) Leslie passes out signed more...


SNL with Ben Stiller follows terrible episode with slightly less terrible episode

SNL with Ben Stiller follows terrible episode with slightly less terrible episode

By | October 9, 2011 at 3:19 pm | 6 comments

After last week’s mostly-terrible effort from Saturday Night Live, I was confident this one, hosted by Ben Stiller, would prove to be a clear comeback for the show. The best I can say about last night’s episode was that it wasn’t worse than its previous week. And because it did have a handful of great moments, I wouldn’t call it a loss. But it wasn’t a win, more...
