If you’re a loyal viewer of Saturday Night Live like yours truly, then you already know the charming original holiday tune “I Wish It Was Christmas Today,” which Jimmy Fallon, Horatio Sanz, Chris Kattan and Tracy Morgan performed for the first time back in December 2000. The song became a favorite among SNL fans, so much that it’s been performed over half a dozen times on the show since then, and even recording artist Julian Casablacans did his own cover of the song. Well, it’s back again, but not on SNL.
Instead, Jimmy Fallon got the band back together for a Saturday Night Live holiday reunion on The Tonight Show, and he included Ariana Grande just for good measure. And don’t worry, because her presence doesn’t ruin the purity of this modern Christmas classic. You’ll see what I mean below.

Some people wonder why Saturday Night Live is still a program that is put together in just a week when the comedy that comes from the show can be so hit or miss. For superfans of the show like myself, that’s actually one of the most exciting aspects of the show. It’s impressive to see what this talented group of people can put together in such a short amount of time, and no one makes show like this anywhere else on television.
Another fun element of the live aspect of the show is that anything can happen while it’s on the air, and that includes cast members “breaking” in the middle of a scene. Sometimes the SNL cast members just can’t help but laugh at themselves or their co-stars and they break the reality of the scene. Usually it just results in the sketch getting funnier, and the audience always loves to see it happen. Now you can relive some of the best moments of breaking from SNL with a couple supercuts spanning decades of sketches. Read More »

You may think you’ve never heard of Matt Walsh, but odds are, you’ve seen his work before. Walsh is probably best known as one of the founders of the Upright Citizens Brigade, and he’s also appeared in supporting roles in tons of films (Elf, Bad Santa, Role Models, Mystery Team, Cyrus, every comedy Todd Phillips has ever done) and television shows (Childrens Hospital, Outsourced, Party Down, Human Giant, Reno 911!, The Daily Show). In short, while he’s not quite as famous as some of his colleagues, it’s safe to say he has a pretty solid comedy resume. Now Walsh is taking on a slightly different kind of role: director. His first feature is High Road, a stoner comedy featuring a bevy of well-known comedians. Watch the red band trailer after the jump.
