Rachel Brosnahan Hosted Saturday Night Live

Rachel Brosnahan has found success pretending to be a comedian on the hit Amazon series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (which is worth watching right this very minute if you haven’t already). But how did she fare taking the reins of one of the most revered comedy shows of all time? Saturday Night Live didn’t use Rachel Brosnahan as effectively as fans might have hoped, not giving her much opportunity to play any standout characters, but the actress did feel comfortable on the series, blending in rather than taking the spotlight, which mostly worked for the entire show.

I Wish It Was Christmas Today 2018

If you’re a loyal viewer of Saturday Night Live like yours truly, then you already know the charming original holiday tune “I Wish It Was Christmas Today,” which Jimmy Fallon, Horatio Sanz, Chris Kattan and Tracy Morgan performed for the first time back in December 2000. The song became a favorite among SNL fans, so much that it’s been performed over half a dozen times on the show since then, and even recording artist Julian Casablacans did his own cover of the song. Well, it’s back again, but not on SNL.

Instead, Jimmy Fallon got the band back together for a Saturday Night Live holiday reunion on The Tonight Show, and he included Ariana Grande just for good measure. And don’t worry, because her presence doesn’t ruin the purity of this modern Christmas classic. You’ll see what I mean below.

Check out the new version of “I Wish It Was Christmas Today” below. Read More »
