Adam Driver - Saturday Night Live Season 44 Premiere

Saturday Night Live has two levels of cast members. Either you’re a full-fledged repertory player, or you’re a featured member of the cast, which basically means your involvement in the show is renewed on a season-by-season basis. Every season, there’s a chance that a featured player gets fired (like Luke Null recently did), or gets promoted to the regular cast. And three featured players just got that coveted promotion.

But more importantly, we just found out that Adam Driver will be hosting the 44th season premiere of SNL, and if you saw the show when he hosted for the first time, you know that this is going to be an episode you won’t want to miss. Read More »

Tina Fey Hosted Saturday Night Live

This weekend brought the 43rd season of Saturday Night Live to a close with beloved cast member Tina Fey returning to host the finale. Whenever a cast member comes back as host for the season finale, then we’re usually in store for a ton of cameos from former cast members coming to play around on the show. But last night’s finale brought so much more than that.

When Tina Fey hosted Saturday Night Live last night, she brought quite the array of celebrity cameos, making for one of the most star-studded monologues I’ve seen in awhile. It wasn’t just former cast members coming back either, but there were a handful of big name stars appearing out of nowhere. And the monologue wasn’t the only place where cameos happened in this solid but not great season finale. Read More »

Amy Schumer Hosted Saturday Night Live

Thought not quite as celebrated as the Christmas episode, Saturday Night Live always does something special for Mother’s Day. This time they pulled out pull the stops for the cold open, opting to avoid all of the typical political satire (kind of) and deliver a heartwarming tribute to the cast members’ mothers. In fact, the episode as a whole pretty much steered clear of politics entirely.

As for Amy Schumer, in her second time hosting the comedian was extremely comfortable. This should come as no surprise since Inside Amy Schumer gave her plenty of sketch comedy experience, but unfortunately this time the episode as a whole wasn’t quite as good as her hosting debut. There were still some big laughs to be had, especially when Melissa McCarthy showed up for a surprise cameo. Read More »
