Madonna and Lady Gaga Almost Lock Lips on Saturday Night Live

Madonna and Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga narrowly avoided joining the ranks of young pop stars who have shared high-profile smooches with Madonna when the music icon made a surprise appearance on Saturday Night Live.

Madonna performed with Lady Gaga on the fictional MTV 4 music show, Deep House Dish, hosted by D.J. Dynasty Handbag (Kenan Thompson).

Gaga and Madonna jokingly fought on stage, with Madge demanding at one point, "What the hell is a disco stick?"

Tonight's TV Hot List: Saturday, Oct. 3, 2009


8/7c Nickelodeon
In recent weeks VMAs and Emmys have been given out, and now it's time for the iCarly Awards. It's the inaugural year for the event, in which Carly, Sam and Freddie plan to honor the top user-generated content on their Web show. The categories are a bit... unusual, and include "Most Inane Hula-Hooper" and "Best Male Acrobat with Lots of Hair." The only problem? Spencer didn't make enough statuettes, and now he must recruit some helpers (in the form of swimsuit models) to churn out some more.

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."

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.

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.
