SNL Newcomer Drops an F-Bomb During Season Premiere

Jenny Slate, SNL

Saturday Night Live kicked off its 35th season with an F-bomb.

In a possible case of the first-night jitters, newcomer Jenny Slate made the verbal misstep of dropping the F-word in a sketch titled "Biker Chick Chat," her only prominent skit of the night. Slate, Kristen Wiig and host Megan Fox were all featured as tough-talking biker chicks with a penchant for using the words "freaking" and "fricking."

Tonight's TV Hot List: Saturday, Sept. 26, 2009

Saturday Night Live

Saturday Night Live
11:29/10:29c NBC
Here's some Fox news: The laugher opens its 35th season with actress Megan Fox, hot off her man-eating performance in Jennifer's Body, as a first-time host. It's been an off-season of high drama. Divisive politics, rude public behavior and stormy debates over health-care reform ruled the day — so we can expect the SNL players to tap into all that with their usual keen observation and comedic zeal. Speaking of zeal, passionate Irish überband U2 rally the evening with performances. Bono and the boys are in the midst of their sprawling 360° Tour (and just recently played two sold-out shows at Giants Stadium), so they should be in tight form.

Read on for previews of Unlikely Animal Friends, Children of the Corn, My Neighbor's Secret and iCarly. read more

NBC Boss: Rocking the Emmy Nominations Proves "Quality Can Succeed"

NBC's 30 Rock collected 22 Emmy nominations, the most of any series.

A funny thing happened when the nominations were announced for the 61st Primetime Emmy Awards: NBC came away as the most recognized of the broadcast networks, with 67 total nods. 

Yes, NBC — the subject of so much ribbing about waning ratings, omnipresent reality programming and Leno-verdosing.

"It's exciting to get so many nominations and be so recognized," Ben Silverman, co-chairman of NBC Entertainment, tells "Across the board, it was a great day." Silverman himself even scored a nod, as an executive producer of The Office.

Premise: Landmark, Emmy-winning satire from an ever-changing company of 'Not Ready for Prime Time Players' who rode the variety show to fame, including (to name just a few of its celebrated grads) Eddie Murphy, Dana Carvey, Chevy Chase, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Al Franken and Mike Myers. From its debut, with Andy Kaufman's memorably bizarre rendition of the 'Mighty Mouse' theme, through John Belushi's Samurai and Gilda Radner's Roseanne Roseannadanna, 'SNL' forever changed the landscape of TV comedy.
