It’s been 10 years since Steve Carell hosted Saturday Night Live, and in recent years, the actor hasn’t dabbled in comedy much. Instead, he’s spent time taking on more dramatic roles, so it was nice to see him get back into sketch comedy, even if the episode didn’t give him a whole lot to work with. But that’s not to say there aren’t some good laughs, even though most of the sketches don’t bring much to the table overall.
Let’s run through the best and worst sketches of the Steve Carell hosted Saturday Night Live below.

The NBC comedy series Parks and Recreation had an incredible ensemble of memorable characters from seven seasons of hilarity, but none of them hold a candle to the miniature horse known as Li’l Sebastian. That’s because he’s 5,000 candles in the wind.
While fans might have thought that we’d seen the last of Li’l Sebastian, since he traded his legs for angels wings, let’s not forget that Parks and Recreation creator Michael Schur is also the creator of The Good Place, which just so happens to take place in the afterlife. So it should come as no surprise that Li’l Sebastian recently popped up in The Good Place along with a whole bunch of animals. Find out about the Lil Sebastian cameo that you likely missed in The Good Place below. Read More »
Even though the Showtime series Ray Donovan started all the way back in 2013, apparently it took five years for Lorne Michael to decide that Liev Schreiber deserved a chance to host Saturday Night Live. Even the host himself said that in his dreams he saw this happening a lot earlier in his career. But here we are in 2018, and Liev Schreiber not only hosted SNL, but early in the season, he’s hosted the best episode so far.
Let’s break down the best and worst sketches of the Liev Schreiber hosted Saturday Night Live.

Just in case Jurassic Park and the two sequels that followed weren’t enough of a prequel to set the stage for Jurassic World, the folks at Universal and NBC created a Jurassic World prequel in the form of a LEGO animated special airing on TV the week after Thanksgiving.
LEGO Jurassic World: The Secret Exhibit is an animated special that will recount the events that led up to Jurassic World, including giving us some background on the tension between Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard) and Owen Grady (Chris Pratt), though neither of the stars are voicing their characters. It all sounds…strange. Anyway, check out the LEGO Jurassic World special trailer below. Read More »
Brooklyn Nine-Nine was cancelled for a total of 31 hours before NBC stepped in and rescued it, and thank heavens for that. The series will jump from FOX to NBC next year for its sixth season, and we now have an official premiere date, as well as confirmation of when the show will air weekly.

I’ve always been a sucker for athletic competition shows. There’s nothing quite like sitting on your fat ass and eating chips while you criticize absurdly in-shape folks as they attempt to overcome mind-boggling physical challenges. I’m also a sucker for Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, that endless well of charisma wrapped in a coat of bulging muscles and tribal tattoos. So put these together and you have a television program I will most definitely check out.
The first trailer for The Titan Games has arrived and it shows off a slick physical competition series fueled by Johnson’s unique brand of optimism and passion. There is also lots of sweaty, muscle-y people looking overwhelmed at what they’ve signed up to do. In other words: must-see TV.

Every day of 2018 brings with it hardship and misery, but 2019 brings with it the promise of more Brooklyn Nine-Nine. So keep your chin up and stay strong – one of the funniest shows on television is going to make us feel at least a little bit better about the impending collapse of civilization.
But seriously, Brooklyn Nine-Nine is pure bottled joy and the first teaser for the show’s sixth season is a welcome reminder that the sweetest and silliest comedy on Fox is about to becomes the sweetest and silliest comedy on NBC.

Seth Meyers has been hosting Late Night over at NBC for years now, but this weekend was the first time he returned to his old stomping grounds at Saturday Night Live as host. So how did the late night sketch show fare with one of their own as host? Well, it played out in very much the same way an episode would when Seth Meyers was a cast member and head writer. There wasn’t much memorable for Seth Meyers to do (which isn’t necessarily a bad thing), but the rest of the cast really shined instead.
Let’s dig into the sketches of the Seth Meyers hosted Saturday Night Live below. Read More »

Last night, Saturday Night Live made Awkwafina the first Asian woman to host the late night sketch show since Lucy Liu took the stage in 2000. Funnily enough, The Crazy Rich Asians star waiting outside 30 Rock after that show, and it gave her hope that she could one day follow in her footsteps. And here we are.
So how was the Awkwafina hosted Saturday Night Live? Well, the cold open was another home run, but several sketches were a victim of bad timing, so much that the better sketches ended up being the pre-recorded bits. So without further adieu, let’s take a look at the best and worst sketches. Read More »
It’s time to say goodbye to two different actors on two very different cop shows. First: Damon Wayans is departing Lethal Weapon, even though the show just went through the trouble of finding him a new co-star. Second: Chelsea Peretti is leaving Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and no one should be happy about that. More on these departures below.
