Saturday Night Live Episodes Delayed

Saturday Night Live is currently between episodes after having John Mulaney and Daniel Craig host back-to-back episodes on February 29 and March 7 respectively. But the late night comedy sketch series will be taking an even longer break amidst all the coronavirus cancellations and delays in Hollywood.

John Krasinski was slated to host the March 28 episode of SNL in support of his new movie A Quiet Place II, which had already been delayed due to coronavirus concerns. But now that nearly every show and movie that was in production is shutting down for at least two weeks, probably longer, the show has been canceled, and SNL will be on hiatus until further notice.

Daniel Craig Hosted Saturday Night Live

Daniel Craig is a serious actor. Rarely have we seen the James Bond franchise star tackle anything comedic, and the last time he got this goofy was the first time he hosted Saturday Night Live was back in the fall of 2012.

Below, we run through the best and worst sketches in the new SNL hosted by Daniel Craig, which include him revealing a No Time to Die sneak peek clip, testing out some alternate Knives Out accents, and playing a deep cut movie quote game.

John Mulaney Hosted Saturday Night Live

This weekend, John Mulaney became the first person to host a Leap Day episode of Saturday Night Live. But that wasn’t the only noteworthy moment to come out of this outstanding episode of the late night sketch series. This is the third year in a row that Mulaney has hosted SNL, and I hope this becomes a tradition that Lorne Michaels continues to honor. Speaking of traditions, this episode features yet another musical sketch inspired by New York, this time by airport sushi, and it’s just one of plenty of hilarious highlights.

Let’s run through the best and worst sketches from the John Mulaney hosted Saturday Night Live. Read More »

RuPaul Hosting Saturday Night Live

RuPaul is a reality TV sensation thanks to his own competition series RuPaul’s Drag Race. It should come as no surprise that RuPaul brought some of his trademark style and sass to Saturday Night Live in his hosting debut. Unfortunately, it was somewhat hindered by messy direction and poor timing throughout the episode. Thankfully, it didn’t keep a couple sketches from standing out and bringing some big laughs, even if most of the episode was middling to perplexing.

Daniel Craig Hosting Saturday Night Live

This weekend brings RuPaul to host Saturday Night Live for the first time, hopefully giving us something better than last week’s disappointing episode, where NFL player J.J. Watt made his hosting debut. But for the spring, SNL will bring back a couple previous hosts, one a seasoned SNL veteran, and the other with just one hosting stint under their belt.

John Mulaney will return to host the Leap Day episode of Saturday Night Live this month, marking his third time hosting in as many years. Plus, Daniel Craig will return to Studio 8H to host the first episode of March, his first time hosting since 2012. Read More »

J.J. Watt Hosted Saturday Night Live

It’s Super Bowl weekend, so Saturday Night Live decided to have one of the NFL’s star players host the show. J.J. Watt is a defensive end for the Houston Texans, so it should come as no surprise that performing isn’t exactly his forté. But even so, the athlete hosted SNL with the same enthusiasm and energy that the likes of Peyton Manning, Michael Phelps and Charles Barkley have brought to Studio 8H. But it also came with the same awkwardness that comes from a lack of experience in acting, resulting in a rather mediocre episode of SNL.

So let’s run through the best and worst sketches of the J.J. Watt hosted Saturday Night Live below. Read More »
