Tiffany Haddish Hosted Saturday Night Live

This weekend, Girls Trip star Tiffany Haddish became the first black female stand-up comedian to host Saturday Night Live (previously Maya Rudolph hosted, but she was an improvisational comic and not a stand-up act). Haddish brought ample energy tot he late night sketch program in her hosting debut, and she had was more confident than some of the most seasoned talents who have taken the stage in Studio 8H. Though the show surrounding her wasn’t raucously hilarious, it was a solid episode of SNL that allowed Haddish to really show off her comedy skills.

We run through the best and worst sketches of the Tiffany Haddish hosted Saturday Night Live below.

Larry David Hosted Saturday Night Live

Saturday Night Live returned this weekend with the first of a back-to-back three-episode run leading up to week of Thanksgiving. To kick things off, we had Larry David returning to host for his second time at Studio 8H, but unfortunately it was nowhere near as noteworthy as his debut back in early 2016.

Larry David’s return to SNL was extremely average. Even the best sketches of the night weren’t particularly fantastic, but merely the best of the night. Many sketches felt like they were trying far too hard, including and especially the return of Larry David as Bernie Sanders, which was shoehorned in for no good reason.

Let’s run through all of the sketches from the Larry David hosted Saturday Night Live below.

MSU Motorcycle Specialty Unit

As the writer and producer of a majority of the movies in the Fast and Furious franchise, Chris Morgan knows a thing or two about high-octane thrillers. But his latest TV project feels more like something you might see a quick snippet of in the background of a Fast and Furious scene than a real show that’s actually coming to network television. But prepare yourselves, because MSU: Motorcycle Specialty Unit is revving up and racing to the small screen courtesy of NBC.

Tiffany Haddish and Chance the Rapper Hosting Saturday Night Live

Saturday Night Live already has the first three episodes of the 43rd season in the books, and they have another batch of three shows in a row in November leading up Thanksgiving. We already knew Larry David was hosting the first episode in November, but the next two hosts have just been announced, and they are not only first-time hosts, but surprising picks.

After Larry David hosts on November 4, Girls Trip and Keanu star Tiffany Haddish will take the stage the week after, and then recording artist Chance the Rapper will follow the week after that. If those names aren’t familiar to you, we’ll give you a rundown of who these stars are. Read More »

David S Pumpkins animated

Saturday Night Live has been crafting memorable sketches for more than 40 years, but every once in a while, one will transcend the show to enter the larger pop culture zeitgeist. Such was the case with last year’s “Haunted Elevator,” which introduced the world to Tom Hanks‘ enigmatic Halloween character known as David S. Pumpkins. The sketch proved so successful that an animated Halloween special was commissioned, and now the trailer has arrived. Any questions? As Beck Bennett‘s confused character says in the sketch, “Yes, several.”

New Saturday Night Live Cast Members

The 43rd season of Saturday Night Live is in full swing. We’ve already had three episodes with hosts Ryan Gosling, Gal Gadot and Kumail Nanjiani ushering in some laughs (be sure to check out our reviews of each new episode over here), and there’s plenty more to come throughout the rest of the year.

Throughout this season, we’ll be keeping an eye on the three new featured players making their debut on the show: Chris Redd, Heidi Gardner and Luke Null. We were introduced to them just before the new season began at the end of September, but now a series of videos from behind the scenes of the late night sketch series allows us to get to know the new Saturday Night Live cast members a little bit better.

Gal Gadot Hosted Saturday Night Live

Gal Gadot dominated the summer box office in Wonder Woman, so that made her a prime candidate to tackle hosting Saturday Night Live for the first time. Taking on the challenge of hosting a live sketch comedy series like SNL is no easy task, even for the most seasoned comedian, so how did the predominantly dramatic actress handle the spotlight in Studio 8H? Gal Gadot did a solid job of hosting, but unfortunately, the writers didn’t give her much to do besides play the straight woman to the rest of the cast.

Let’s run through the best and worst sketches of the Gal Gadot hosted Saturday Night Live.
