A few weeks off-air seems to have done good for the crew at Saturday Night Live. Not since this season's premiere with host Alec Baldwin has the show delivered such a competent episode. Last night's effort found underdog Charlie Day -- co-star of FX's ensemble cult hit, It's...

Yesterday, we printed a few short excerpts from Saturday Night Live alum Darrell Hammond's upcoming book, God, If You’re Not Up There, I’m Fucked: Misadventures In Stand-Up, Saturday Night Live, and Other Mind-Altering Mayhem (out Nov. 8). But today, we get an even deeper...

After a couple of lackluster episodes hosted by established comedy vets Ben Stiller and Anna Faris, the next few weeks offer us a fresh set of Saturday Night Live hosts. After two weeks of reruns, we’re treated to a Nov. 5 show hosted by It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia...

With shows like Louie, Arrested Development, and The Office having emerged within the last 10 years, it’s safe to say that scripted television comedy is at an apex – at least for the time being. But even considering all the brilliant writing that’s happened on these shows...

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...

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...

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...

We're just a few days away from Saturday Night Live's third episode of the season. Ben Stiller will be hosting and Foster The People will play the part of musical guest. As far as I'm concerned, SNL's Win-Loss record this year is 1-1 so far. Their premiere with Alec Baldwin as...

I think that maybe this is the first time a promo for Saturday Night Live was shot outside. I'm probably wrong. But if I'm right, boy am I going to look smart. Anyway, the new SNL is almost upon us. It's hump day and with all the humping comes SNL promos. In these, Bridesmaids...
