Shane Gillis Fired from Saturday Night Live

Last week, Saturday Night Live announced the hiring of three new comedians as featured players for the 45h season of the late night sketch series. However, one of the trio, comedian Shane Gillis, was immediately embroiled in controversy when undeniably racist comments made on a podcast from last year came to light. Thankfully, SNL has made the right choice by choosing not to bring him on board the show. Find out more about Shane Gillis fired from Saturday Night Live below. Read More »

Alec Baldwin Hosting Saturday Night Live

Saturday Night Live wrapped up its 44th season last month, and before the show returns for the 45th season this fall, they might have to find someone else to play the joke of a president that is Donald Trump.
