Jesse Eisenberg, Nicki Minaj push SNL to one of its best episodes of the season

There’s a bit of irony in this week’s show. You’ve got an actor of Robert De Niro’s caliber hosting, one whose very reason for being a host is that his ability to deliver in comedies has proven so successful that audiences are flocking for thirds with “Little...

Anne Hathaway, Jay Pharoah lead Saturday Night Live to a solid night of laughs

She awkwardly mumbles as the pseudo-“complex” Katie Holmes on the Miley Cyrus Show. She dons a Dorothy costume and Judy Garland’s voice to boot. She Brits-up as royalty-to-be Kate Middleton. She kicks up combat-booted heels as Alanis Morrissette. She busts out a thick...

Kanye West creates fun in an otherwise un-funny Saturday Night Live episode

By | October 4, 2010 at 2:56 pm | 2 comments

It doesn’t bode well for a legendary sketch comedy show when the most memorable part of an episode is the musical performance. Kanye West’s two sets on this week’s Saturday Night Live were simply stunning to see! It was like watching a music video… live. Of course, NBC...
