Jason Momoa Hosted Saturday Night Live

Aquaman is coming to theaters later this month, so there’s no better time for Jason Momoa to make his hosting debut on Saturday Night Live. You may not know this, but Jason Momoa is a bit of an SNL nerd, and he was positively giddy with excitement when he walked out on the stage in Studio 8H. Actually he was pretty giddy the week leading up to that moment too.

The result was Jason Momoa giving a hosting turn along the same lines as when Dwayne Johnson returns to SNL, and we ended up with a generally hilarious episode. But if you were hoping for an Aquaman sketch, you’ll mostly be disappointed. However, the monologue comes close to giving us an Aquaman sketch. You’ll see what we’re talking about below.

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory SNL Sketch

A new Saturday Night Live aired over the weekend, the first of three episodes closing out 2018 with a bang. First-time host Claire Foy (The Girl in the Spider’s Web, First Man) was a satisfying guest during a solid episode of the series, which featured two sketches that were very much lined up with our interests and deserved to be singled out.

First up, SNL created a commercial for Netflix and their seemingly endless creation of new streaming content each and every day, including a tease at some of their upcoming projects. But the real treat is a new take on Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, which explores the more disturbing side of living with in a house where all four of your grandparents sleep together¬† in the same bed.

The Morning Watch is a recurring feature that highlights a handful of noteworthy videos from around the web. They could be video essays, fanmade productions, featurettes, short films, hilarious sketches, or just anything that has to do with our favorite movies and TV shows.

Steve Carell Hosted Saturday Night Live

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.
