Sam Rockwell Hosted Saturday Night Live

The first Saturday Night Live of 2018 featured Golden Globe winner Sam Rockwell making his hosting debut.

So without further ado, let’s run through the best and worst sketches of the night. Read More »

Jessica Chastain - Saturday Night Live January 2018 Hosts

This weekend brings the first new Saturday Night Live of 2018 with Golden Globe winner Sam Rockwell making his hosting debut. The show must have known he would be raking in awards for his turn in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, because they booked him before he even started taking home trophies. Either that or they just realized that Sam Rockwell has needed to host for awhile.

Anyway, Sam Rockwell isn’t the only talent coming to Studio 8H to host one of the first episodes of 2018. NBC has announced that Molly’s Game star Jessica Chastain will be making her hosting debut, and a certain fan favorite cast member will be returning to host again.

Usually the Christmas episode of Saturday Night Live is an exciting, joyous, hilarious star-studded affair. With Kevin Hart hosting the final episode of 2017, it seemed like a safe bet that this episode would deliver the goods, maybe even with some help from his Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle co-stars Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black and Karen Gllian. But unfortunately, that was not the case.

Returning for his third time hosting, Kevin Hart brought his signature high energy to the late night sketch comedy series, but he certainly didn’t bring many laughs. Any genuine hilarity was few and far between, and most of the sketches felt half-baked, lazy and fell flat.

But how was the episode? Thankfully, this was a solid episode of Saturday Night Live with the right mix of satire, oddity and even a couple of sketches that felt like they went against the grain of the more popular SNL sketch formulas.

Chance the Rapper Hosted Saturday Night Live

Chance the Rapper has taken to the stage in Studio 8H before a a musical guest on SNL, but this was his first time hosting the show.
