Aziz Ansari delivered as host on Saturday Night Live. After a terrible episode with Felicity Jones, Saturday Night Live rebounded on a make-or-break weekend with Aziz Ansari hosting.
A show that strives for topicality and cultural relevance CANNOT f*ck up not only an inauguration weekend, but the most divisive inauguration in recent memory, one that included an inauguration speech straight out of a YA dystopia novel and a huge, Richter Scale-rocking movement on Saturday as millions across the country and world marched in solidarity with one another for women’s rights, for equal rights, for basic human rights. It was into that atmosphere that Aziz Ansari stepped when he took the stage at studio 8H, and he f*cking delivered.
(Or click here to watch in the U.S.) Of course, Ansari is one of the best stand-up comics working right now, and it shows in his monologue, which is a stand-up set. What did not deliver on this crucial night is Weekend Update. (Or click here to watch in the U.S.) (Or click here to watch in the U.S.) Guessing at Jennifer Lawrence's celebrity nicknames from Watch What Happens Live. Jennifer Lawrence was on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen this week.
And her best friend Laura Simpson was the bartender. You’ll recall, Jennifer took Laura with her to the Oscars in 2014 and Laura ended up writing an essay about the experience afterwards. So they play this game where Laura either has to answer questions about Jennifer or, if she can’t answer, or won’t answer, she has to drink. One of the questions was about the celebrities that Jennifer hates. And Laura reveals that she and Jennifer use code names. So we have: The Raging Lady, The Lady In Red, The Lady In Waiting, and Pickle. Ready to start guessing? The Raging Lady: Miley Cyrus There’s the Liam Hemsworth connection and all those rumours about Hunger Games hookups.
Chris Rock announces The Total Blackout Tour 2017 on Facebook Live. December 6, 2016Posted at 5:59 PM Posted by Kathleen.
Kate McKinnon's incredible performance of Hallelujah as Hillary Clinton in SNL cold open. Sunday morning, I sent the following text to Kathleen: “Modern Challenge: How to send my mom, who doesn’t have Twitter, a link to the Kate McKinnon SNL opening that isn’t already dead?”
(These are the perils of living in a geoblocked nation.) My reaction to the opening of SNL was predictable, stereotypical, worthy of being mocked on Facebook by that guy who wants everyone to ‘just calm down’ because nothing is wrong. After just being generally grumpy and horrified and morose all week, and permanently teaching iMessage that I spell words like F*CKING in all caps, I bawled after the first stanza. Pointless, loud sobbing like someone pressed a button. Saturday Night Live's stronger ratings attributed in part to new head writers Chris Kelly and Sarah Schneider and Intro for October 17, 2016.

A badass rabbit mama was inducted into The Not The One Fight Club last year when a video came out of her getting a snake together and taking that trick to Whoop Town after it tried to eat her chirrun. Well, that badass rabbit mama better take off her boxing gloves for one second to welcome a new member to the gang.

This classic tale of love between a dog, a man and a hummingbird is almost two weeks old, but it’s never too old to warm our bitter-crusted rotten hearts on a real-life Disney story. Ed Gernon tells CBS Los Angeles that last year he adopted a German shepherd mix named Rex, and Rex was apparently a mess. Rex was living on the streets, so he was doing what he had to do to survive. Rex hunted for food and scrapped with dogs and cats. Ed says that Rex was “dangerous,” but he adopted him anyway and brought the pooch into his home in Whittier, CA.

Well, the hairy leather nutsack was back at the Golden Globes last night to introduce a clip from Mad Max: Fury Road and Ricky once again stuck that microwaved hot dog to the end of a stick and roasted that bitch. Ricky Gervais introduced the charbroiled piece of rage jerky and he made a few jokes about Mel being a drunk, Jew-hating mess while doing so. When Mel came out, he pretty much called Ricky Gervais a piece of shit and let everyone know that he’s got a train wreck of a colon since he has to get a colonoscopy every 3 years.
