Christoph Waltz hosted NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” last night and participated in a spoof of his Oscar-nominated film, Django Unchained. While there are many that may be offended by the act, as a catholic, I couldn’t help but laugh until I cried. It was absolutely hilarious. Check it out!
Jennifer Lawrence hosted NBC’s Saturday Night Live last night and in her opening monologue that seemed a bit stiff, Lawrence poked fun at her Best Actress candidates Jessica Chastain, Emmanuelle Riva, Naomi Watts, and Quvenzhane Wallis. Could this tip her in the right direction for Silver Linings Playbook? Check out her opening monologue as well as the hilarious sketch about The Hobbit being made into 18 films:
Louie CK killed it on the opening monologue on last night’s “Saturday Night LIVE.” One of the funnier sketches (and believe me, there were horrible ones), included a spoof of his own show, “Louie” in conjunction with Abraham Lincoln. Did Steven Spielberg’s film get an endorsement from SNL?
The 38th season of “Saturday Night LIVE” debuted last Saturday with host Seth MacFarlane, who’s had a great year with his film “Ted” and of course, still holds the success of FOX’s “Family Guy.”
In show structure, this was the first episode since Emmy Award nominee Kristen Wiig, Andy Samberg, and Abby Elliott were announced to leave the show at the end of last season. Leaving fans of the show skeptical, critics and audiences were unsure if the show would be able to sustain without the multi-layered talents of Wiig and Samberg who have been staples in the show for years. Proud to report, when talent leaves, new talent steps up. Read more on ‘SNL’ Cast and Host Seth MacFarlane Deliver Best Work in Years!…
With summer coming to a close, it means the new fall television season is right around the corner. As always there are plenty TV shows airing this year; some new and some returning. To help you keep track of this seasons TV shows, I have compiled a list of shows that will be airing Friday & Saturday nights. New shows will be listed in bold.
Terence: Alright everyone we’re back with a look at the Reality TV and Variety Series nominees. Joseph, I think this might be our shortest one! *readers cheer enthusiastically*
Joseph: Yes indeed, and in one category one person’s inclusion in the “Best Reality TV Host” category has indeed proven that the apocalypse is coming.
OUTSTANDING REALITY SHOW HOST
Tom Bergeron, Dancing With the Stars
Cat Deeley, So You Think You Can Dance
Phil Keoghan, The Amazing Race
Ryan Seacrest, American Idol
Betty White, Betty White’s Off Their Rockers
Terence: Apparently so. I guess the tribe has finally spoken, no Jeff Probst! Which is crazy when you consider that he’s won the award the last 4 years.
Don’t be fooled by the smile. She’s vicious.
Joseph: Totally crazy, and it should be an illegal crime nominating Betty White over Jeff Probst. The Emmy were really “Off Their Rocker” on that one. That woman can strangle a cat on stage, and she’d still be nominated for something.
Terence: What annoys me about Betty is that her show isn’t anything different than what MTV has been doing for YEARS and their hosts couldn’t sniff a nomination. Did they just hate Survivor so much they couldn’t even stomach nominating Probst?
Terence: Alright Joseph we’re back this week to talk about the comedy nominees.
Joseph: Hey Terence, hey everyone. Holy moly, this list reminded me that Melissa McCarthy is being nominated again. Did someone at the Emmy committee not get the memo that she’s already been nominated for an Oscar?
Jonah Hill, the Academy Award Nominated actor (how cool is that to put together now?) for “Moneyball” hosted “Saturday Night Live” this past weekend and completely laughed up the audience in one of the best hosting efforts this season.
In his opening monologue, he pokes fun at himself, the Oscar process, and is joined by veteran actor and Oscar winner Tom Hanks. Check it out for yourself.

“Saturday Night Live,” one of America’s most prized possessions of sketch comedy will be entering its 37th season on September 24th. The season premiere will be hosted by Alec Baldwin, which will be his 16th time hosting and will beat the record of most times hosted previously held by former SNL member Steve Martin. With all the players set to come back this season, one has to wonder, what has been the glitch in the SNL formula for the past few years?
