Kenan Thompson, Lady Gaga
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:
When Saturday Night Live announced this season's six new cast members, many were shocked to see that the sketch comedy show would be devoid of a black female cast member for the sixth year in a row.
In a world where we have a black First Lady and pop culture is defined by Scandal, Rihanna, Oprah, Nicki Minaj and Beyonce, this is...
Miley Cyrus did plenty of singing on Saturday Night Live this week, but thankfully left the twerking at home for the most part. Acting as both host and musical guest, Cyrus skewered the government shutdown in one sketch and parodied her infamous performance at the MTV Video Music Awards in another. She also performed her single "Wrecking Ball" (with clothes on) and an acoustic version of "We Can't Stop." Check out highlights from SNL below. How do you think Cyrus did as host?

Question: Fellow Hoosier here. Love your column. I don't have a question really, but wanted to express my displeasure in the fact that ABC has canceled Last Resort and 666 Park Avenue.

Any hope either series will be picked up by another network? OK, so maybe I had a question after all. — Bonnie
Deaf actress Marlee Matlin is criticizing Saturday Night Live for the NBC show's recent deaf signing sketch, which spoofed New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's sign language interpreter Lydia Callis and her animated signing during the Hurricane Sandy press conferences.

It's official — Abby Elliott will not be returning to Saturday Night Live.
Elliott, the daughter of former SNL cast member Chris Elliott, is leaving the sketch show after four seasons, Splitsider reports. The announcement comes after stars Kristen Wiig and Andy Samberg said their goodbyes on last season's finale.
Helen Mirren was certainly game during her first hosting gig on Saturday Night Live. The Dame let castmate Nasim Pedrad feel her up and later shared a steamy liplock with Abby Elliot.
This week's digital short focused entirely on Mirren's "magical bosom." When Mirren allowed Pedrad to touch her breasts, she received visions of everything from the inspirational sports movie Rudy to Neil Armstrong's walk on the moon in 1969. Nasim even sees Jesus (played by Andy Samberg), who calmly explained that the Oscar winner's breasts "exist in...
Burly, bearded Zach Galifianakis began his Saturday Light Live monologue with some one-liners and impressions that included "the guy from Queens who's obsessed with cargo shorts," and ended up dressed like Little Orphan Annie singing "Tomorrow" with a complement of scrawled messages a la an old Bob Dylan video.
