Kristen Stewart Hosted Saturday Night Live

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 »

Eddie Murphy Saturday Night Live Characters

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.

Chance the Rapper Hosted Saturday Night Live

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.

David Harbour Hosting Saturday Night Live

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.

Woody Harrelson Hosted Saturday Night Live

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 »
