After once writing for the staple late night sketch show, comedian Larry David returned to Saturday Night Live as host this past weekend. The creator and star of Curb Your Enthusiasm and Seinfeld co-creator has been appearing on SNL this season as potential presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, but this is by far the most involvement David has ever had on the show. Thankfully, the episode was more than just David being himself, even though a couple sketches made use of the comedian’s trademark personality.

Just when you thought this season of Saturday Night Live had peaked with that Adam Driver episode, they go ahead and announce that the great Larry David will be guest hosting the show next month. The legendary comedian, best known for co-creating Seinfeld and starring in HBO’s great Curb Your Enthusiasm, has already guest starred twice this season, playing Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders to perfection…and calling guest host Donald Trump a racist on live television. So expect his episode to not skimp on the politics.

There are movies that make a ton money and there are movies that make a ton of money and tap into culture in a pretty significant way. Since you can look out over the internet landscape and see countless pieces of fan art, Twitter parodies, and complex fan theories related to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it’s obvious that J.J. Abrams’ film falls into the latter category.
And while you can kill The Force Awakens with a thousand nitpicks, even the biggest detractors tend to have nice things to say about the new characters, who struck an instant chord with audiences. It’s because we like (or at least like watching) Kylo Ren that last week’s SNL sketch, which found guest host Adam Driver revisiting the villainous character on a faux episode of Undercover Boss, worked so well. Now, outtakes from the sketch have arrived, along with fan-made T-shirts and action figures commemorating “Matt the Radar Technician.” Yep, here’s another corner of Star Wars fandom in which you can luxuriate.

Last night brought the first new Saturday Night Live of 2016, and it just so happens that Adam Driver hosted during the first box office weekend that Star Wars: The Force Awakens didn’t take the #1 spot. However, The Force Awakens was still the talk of the weekend with a hilarious new sketch taking aim at Kylo Ren, and it wasn’t the only reference made to Star Wars during the episode. There was even more Disney fun to be had with Adam Driver playing Aladdin as well.
We recap that and all the sketches from the Adam Driver Saturday Night Live episode after the jump! Read More »
If you’ve seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens, then you know that Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) can have a bit of a temper when things don’t go his way. There’s already an Emo Kylo Ren account on Twitter and an animated short featuring the First Order commander freaking out during everyday situations. Now Kylo Ren wants to see what the employees at Starkiller Base really think of his management skills and attitude by disguising himself as a radar technician named Matt on the CBS reality series Undercover Boss in a new sketch from Saturday Night Live, which was hosted by Driver himself last night.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
The last new episode of Saturday Night Live in 2015 hit the air last night, and with it came two favorite cast members returning to Studio 8H as hosts. However, despite the fact that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler both pulled hosting duties last night for the usually delightful episode that happens just before Christmas, this episode just didn’t quite pack the punch that it should have. There were still some solid sketches and a couple of cool surprises, but overall, this was just an average episode.
We review each and every sketch from the Tina Fey and Amy Poehler Saturday Night Live episode below! Read More »
Last night, Chris Hemsworth returned to Studio 8H to host Saturday Night Live for a second time, proving that he’s one of those hosts who can come back anytime and have a lot of fun. He’s not quite on par with Justin Timberlake, but he’s charismatic, funny, and really throws himself into every sketch. He didn’t suit up as Thor this time, but if you’ve always wanted to see him in a dress, now is your chance. We recap all the sketches from the whole Chris Hemsworth Saturday Night Live episode below!

Once Force Friday arrived back in September, it wasn’t just kids who were excited to get their hands on the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens toys. In fact, part of me wonders if there were more adults anxious to get their hands on some toys that night instead of the youngsters. But that doesn’t mean any of the toy commercials are geared towards adults…until now.
Last night, Saturday Night Live debuted a new Star Wars toy commercial for The Force Awakens action figures and playsets, complete with a wholly accurate representation of some adult collectors snatching up toys out there. Read More »
Kicking off the final three episodes of Saturday Night Live that we’ll get in 2015, The Notebook and Drive star Ryan Gosling took the stage at Studio 8H for his hosting debut. You never know what you’re going to get with a first-time host from an actor with a career like Gosling’s, but this episode was an absolute delight, helped occasionally by the fact that sometimes he had a hard time keeping a straight face on live television. Plus, one favorite SNL veteran stopped by for the monologue.
So let’s break down all the Ryan Gosling Saturday Night Live sketches below! Read More »
