Saturday Night Live is hoping to add an African-American female to the cast as soon as January, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The NBC sketch comedy show recently held two showcases...
Lady Gaga pulled double duty as both host and musical guest on Saturday Night Live and she didn't hesitate to poke a little fun at herself. The night's sketches included a glimpse into the future, with a washed-up Gaga reminiscing about her glory days in her Upper West Side apartment, where she's forced to call upon her superintendent to keep her company. On the musical side, Gaga was joined by special guest R. Kelly for her single "Do What U Want."Check out highlights from the episode below:
With Scandal star Kerry Washington hosting this week, Saturday Night Live took the opportunity to have a little fun at its own expense.
The episode built its entire first sketch around the concept that Washington would be tasked with playing Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey and Beyonce all in the same skit — a winking reference to Kenan Thompson's recent comments about the lack of women of color on SNL.
It was Edward Norton's first time hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend, but he got some helpful advice right at the start from a couple of veterans.
Alec Baldwin and Miley Cyrus made appearances during Norton's opening monologue, with 16-time host Baldwin offering Norton some tips — and Baldwin deadpanning that his turn in American History X was "hilarious." Cyrus basically promoted her upcoming tour and twerked later on in the episode (sigh).
Mirror, mirror on the wall. Who has the best costume of them all?
That's the question the first annual Hub Halloween Bash aims to answer. The two-hour special, hosted by Saturday Night Live's Kenan Thompson, features children from across the country competing in a star-studded costume contest with the winner nabbing $25,000 and a walk-on role on the Daytime Emmy-winning series R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour: The Series.
