SNL Tackles NBC's Late-Night Squabble: Jay and Conan Both "A Colossal Failure"

Fred Armisen

Saturday Night Live tackled NBC's late-night squabble, using its usual cold opening to present a mock Larry King Live with Jay Leno and Conan O'Brien as guests to discuss how it was a "colossal failure" all around.

"Conan is out. Jay is in. And no one is talking about the greatest talk show of all time, Mr. Joey Bishop," Fred Armisen's King said... read more

SNL: A Stop on the Campaign Trail

In only two weeks on the air, Saturday Night Live is back in its sweet spot, right where it wanted to be during the long strike hiatus: smack-dab in the center of today’s political dialogue. Barack Obama made a cameo in the last episode before the strike, Mike Huckabee showed up for an aw-shucks appearance in the middle of last week’s Weekend Update, and this week, in an opener that’s likely to become part of the all-time SNL archives, it was Hillary Clinton’s turn. She who inspired last week’s classic Tina Fey slogan, “Bitch is the new black,” which I’ve already bought as a T-shirt for a friend (not an endorsement, mind you, of anything but great comedy).In a life-imitates-art moment, the real Senator Clinton gave SNL a shout-out during last Tuesday’s debate in Cleveland, in an awkward attempt to piggyback on the show’s parody of media bias favoring her rival: “I just find it curious if anybody saw Saturday Night Live, maybe we... read more

Hardball's Chris Matthews Takes on Election Day — and SNL

Chris Matthews

Americans head to the polls today for one of the most anticipated midterm elections in recent memory. A power shift in both the House and Senate appears likely, and the news media has focused in, with predictions, polling and punditry having reached a fever pitch. Chris Matthews, host of MSNBC's Hardball and of the syndicated/NBC News-produced panel program The Chris Matthews Show, is one of those members of the media who believes this election deserves the hype. "I don't think this is a prelude. This is a main event," Matthews attests. "The voters' attitude about Iraq is the big story for the world. No matter how we read the election at home, no matter what the president says or Democrats say afterward, the world press will read t read more
