Community always played the long game with its jokes, but there’s one joke that it was never able to make good on. After the throwaway joke of “Six seasons and a movie!” became a rallying cry for the twice-cancelled comedy, fans have long wished for the feature film that would reunite the misfit study group and fulfill that mantra. It’s an idea that creator Dan Harmon has played with, and which the stars have supported, though it seems less likely as we get further away from Community‘s cult-show heyday. But four years after Community wrapped up its six-season run, we’re getting rumblings about a Community movie once again.

After delivering a solid Halloween episode last weekend, the cast and writers of Saturday Night Live must have decided to phone it in this week, perhaps due to too many Halloween parties. Kristen Stewart returned as host, and not only was she barely anything other than herself in different wigs and wardrobe, but the sketches surrounding her left a lot to be desired. There were still some good laughs to be had, even in the Read More »
This season of Saturday Night Live is an exciting one because it will finally be bringing back Eddie Murphy as host for the first time since 1984, which was also the last year that he was part of the late night sketch show’s cast. Making it even more special is the fact that it will be the Christmas episode on December 21, and as a little present for all of his longtime fans, Murphy confirmed that he will be bringing back some of his most beloved characters from the time he spent on the show.

Last night brought the Halloween episode of Saturday Night Live, and thanks to host Chance the Rapper, the energy was high. Unfortunately (or fortunately in some cases), the number of technical mistakes, gaffes, and line flubs were also high with almost every single live sketch having some kind of error. Since the show is live, there are usually a couple missteps here and there, but this show was riddled with them. Thankfully, they didn’t always make the sketch worse. In fact, in a couple cases, they helped make the sketch much better than it otherwise might have been. It was kind of weird how well it all worked.
Let’s run through the best and worst sketches from the Chance the Rapper hosted Saturday Night Live. Read More »
Based on David Harbour‘s general enthusiasm in any given situation, we knew that he would have plenty of fun hosting Saturday Night Live. Unfortunately, it seems like the writers might have been tired in their third episode in a row, because the sketches were rather middling in their comedy. Thankfully, there were a couple of great standout sketches, including one that has David Harbour giving a Joker-inspired gritty take on Oscar the Grouch.
Without further adieu, let’s run through the best and worst sketches from the David Harbour hosted Saturday Night Live.

Over three years ago, rumors were swirling about Will Smith‘s production company developing a possible The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reboot that would have put “a new spin on the fish-out-of-water tale while maintaining the spirit of the original series.” However, once Smith finally got asked about the project, he said a reboot of the NBC sitcom that he led back in the 1990s would probably happen “when hell freezes over.” Well, the devil might want start shopping for a winter coat.
In a recent profile on Will Smith’s overall success in show business, a little detail is buried that mentions the actor’s new Westbrook production banner is working on a Fresh Prince of Bel-Air spin-off series. Read More »
Fresh off her big night at the Emmys, actress, writer, producer and all-around comedy stalwart Phoebe Waller-Bridge made her Saturday Night Live debut this weekend, and she brought an ample amount of energy to Studio 8H. Waller-Bridge is an experience comedian who knows how to work with the talented writers and cast of Saturday Night Live, and the result was an episode that was certainly better than the season premiere. But the most notable moment of the night came from a breakout bit from one of the new featured players.
Let’s dig into the Phoebe Waller-Bridge hosted Saturday Night Live with our full review. Read More »
Saturday Night Live is back for its 45th season, and the season premiere kicked off in the aftermath of one of the biggest week’s in political news this year (and that’s saying something). Though SNL had pulled back from doing too much political satire last season, mostly because the presidential administration is too funny of a joke itself to effectively parody, they came back with a vengeance by not only bringing Alec Baldwin back as Donald Trump, but several guest stars, as well as host Woody Harrelson, as key Democratic presidential candidates. One of those wasn’t too bad, but the best parts of the show came outside the political arena. So let’s get into it.
Check out our rundown of the best and worst sketches from the Woody Harrelson hosted Saturday Night Live below. Read More »
