Saturday Night Live Is Typical, Moderately Funny, In Anniversary Special


Saturday Night Live Bradley Cooper Betty White Tina Fey

Saturday Night Live celebrated its 40th anniversary this past week. Congratulations! The verdict? It was good enough. Like many other SNL episodes, this one was a 50/50 deal - some of the jokes fell flat, while others got just a passing laugh. There were zingers, but we probably won't be recycling jokes Christopher Walken's "only perscription is more cowbell" in a couple of years.

Happy 40th, Saturday Night Live!

Though re-visiting old sketches and characters was a welcome bit of nostalgia, of course.  Tina Fey's Sarah Palin, holding a flute and wondering when the talent portion of the show would begin was a highlight. In the end, more often than not, the show was funny.

Martin Freeman's Bilbo Baggins Meets Tim Canterbury In SNL's 'The Office: Middle Earth'


Martin Freeman Saturday Night Live Peter Jackson Ricky Gervais

Martin Freeman's acting career has been just as much an unpredictable a journey as his character Bilbo Baggins' Middle Earth quest in 'The Hobbit' series, but can you imagine his two most iconic roles joining together?

That's just what 'Saturday Night Live' did when the British actor took to guest hosting the show on Saturday (December 13th 2014). Before he stormed US film and TV with Peter Jackson's 'The Hobbit' and the FX series adaptation of the Coen brothers' 'Fargo', Martin Freeman was arguably best known for his likeable role as Tim Canterbury in Ricky Gervais' sitcom 'The Office'. So what happens when you put an ordinary office environment in Middle Earth?

Nicki Minaj Rocks SNL Ahead Of "The Pinkprint" Release


Nicki Minaj Ariana Grande Beyonce Knowles Drake Meek Mill Saturday Night Live

Ok, before you read this article, we have to agree on one thing: this is a no Nicki Minaj hate zone. That means that you have to read it with an open mind and hopefully appreciate the  majesty that is Nicki Minaj’s hair, music, makeup... everything, really.

Minaj performed three songs in all: 'Bed Of Lies' with Skylar Grey and a medley of 'Only' and 'All Things Go'. Through the magic of the internet, you can now watch all of those online. Somewhere. Not here because, you know. Copyright is a thing. NME has clips of the whole thing, though. Don’t say we never did anything for you.

Um... excuse you?

After Boston Bombings Jokes, Chris Rock Supported By Fellow Comedians... And Nobody Else


Chris Rock Saturday Night Live

Chris Rock has never been one to shy away from shock humour and difficult topics, but his opening monologue on SNL last night might just make you squirm inside. Not only did the comedian address 9/11 (still a touchy subject,) but he also had a joke or two about... the Boston bombing. Yep, he went there.

Chris Rock went there in an unforgettable SNL episode.

The initial bombs, which claimed the lives of three people and injured 268, exploded on April 15, 2013. Obviously, the impact is still fresh for many, so the comedian’s jokes were met with some backlash, to put it mildly.

Jim Carrey Does Sia's 'Chandelier' On 'SNL'. Scarily Well.


Jim Carrey Saturday Night Live Sia Kate McKinnon Iggy Azalea Matthew Mcconaughey Jeff Daniels

Jim Carrey's third appearance on 'Saturday Night Live' at the weekend (October 25th 2014) proved to be another eye-wateringly hilarious episode - though we know we'll be stuck with an image of the actor in a nude unitard and blonde wig forever more.

Yes, Saturday's 'SNL' highlight was the Halloween themed office party sketch, which saw the 'Dumb and Dumber' star re-enact the video for Sia's Platinum hit 'Chandelier', alongside identically dressed cast member Kate Mckinnon as they attempted to battle it out for the right to wear the costume. The pair performed the energetic dance routine of 'Dance Moms' star Maddie Ziegler who starred in the video, and while it has to be said that it really is a remarkable rendition, Jim Carrey's customary absurd facial expressions made it a truly unmissable show - that and musical guest Iggy Azalea's unexpected cameo.
