    Saturday Night Live this weekend opened with a bipartisan meeting on gun control, led by Alec Baldwin‘s Donald Trump, during which the president indicated that there were “30 million good reasons” why nothing will change. POTUS, joined by Vice President Mike Pence and Sen. Diane Feinstein, said in the wake of the Parkland school shooting that it was time to take a hard look at mental health, “which I have so much of. I have one of the healthiest mentals.” He than posed the idea that “maybe we just take everyone’s guns away,” and that no one should be allowed...

    Alec Baldwin, whose dying mediocre career was saved by his terrible impersonation of me on SNL, now says playing me was agony. Alec, it was agony for those who were forced to watch. Bring back Darrell Hammond, funnier and a far greater talent!
  • On SNL, it dawns on the left that its tantrum over Trump is falling flat

    I don't watch television, but as part of a video classroom assignment on how show segments are strung together, I ended up watching Saturday Night Live. I watch it anyway on YouTube for the glimpse it gives on how the left "thinks." I watched the opening segment last night, which was a mirthless five-minute take attempting to convince us President Trump was dumb. Later on in the program, at the half-hour mark, the second political skit, led by actress and guest host Jessica Chastain was more interesting. Using the format of a cheesy game show with a panel of three...

  • Remembering John Belushi’s Wild ‘Midday Live’ Interview

    For Page Six’s 40th anniversary, we unearthed a recounting of “SNL” wildman John Belushi’s first talk- show interview on “Midday Live” in ’77. Belushi had to be rousted out of bed and appeared unshaven and “on all fours, crawling onto the set.” He then threw a glass of water on host Bill Boggs, kicked over a table and said on-air of the female producer who intervened, “I don’t know who this person is, but she’s asking for sex.”

    Hollywood Reporter ^ | Hilary Lewis | 12/16/2017
    The 2016 Democratic presidential candidate said she was "honored," joking, "This makes it significantly less awkward that I've had a Pete Davidson tattoo for years." Saturday Night Live castmember Pete Davidson on Friday posted a photo on Instagram indicating that he got a tattoo of former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Accompanying the picture of the ink, Davidson said the "tattoo of [his] hero" was meant to be a Christmas gift for Clinton. "Thanks for being such a badass and one of the strongest people in the universe," he added. The picture is the only photo on his verified Instagram...
  • Ken Shapiro, Whose ‘Groove Tube’ Satirized TV, Dies at 75

    The New York Times ^ | November 29, 2017 | Richard Sandomir
    Ken Shapiro, a former child television actor whose hit 1974 film, “The Groove Tube,” anticipated “Saturday Night Live” by a year with sketches that wickedly satirized TV, died on Nov. 18 at his home in Las Cruces, N.M. He was 75. His daughter, Rosy Rosenkrantz, said the cause was cancer. Mr. Shapiro’s film, with a cast that included Chevy Chase, a future “S.N.L.” star, and the comedian Richard Belzer, was simultaneously inspired by Sid Caesar and Ernie Kovacs’s TV comedy shows of the 1950s and invigorated by the nudity, profanity and raunchiness commonplace in 1970s movies.

    It's been a week since allegations of sexual harassment and groping emerged against Democrat Senator Al Franken. Some on the left have issued condemnations, others are circling the wagons in his defense. Over at SNL a number of women signed a letter of character, arguing Franken really is a good guy. JUST IN: Women staff of "Saturday Night Live" sign letter in support of Sen.

    Deadline ^ | 11/18
    Should he stay or should he go? Hollywood, never as monolithic as Fox News viewers believe, certainly has reached no consensus on Al Franken, the Saturday Night Live veteran turned Minnesota senator. “Zero tolerance,” tweets Alyssa Milano, firmly in the he-needs-to-go camp. On the other side: “He made a mistake,” said Chelsea Handler, agreeing with a Franken-supporting Bill Maher on last night’s Real Time With Bill Maher. “He’s not a predator.” Maher neatly summed up the anti-resignation argument: “He did a bad thing and the condemnation has been universal, which he deserves. What he doesn’t deserve is to be lumped...

    The Anti-Defamation League says Larry David’s Saturday Night Live monologue – in which the Curb Your Enthusiasm creator pondered his dating options in a concentration camp – was “offensive, insensitive & unfunny all at same time.” The ADL’s stance, tweeted by the organization’s CEO Jonathan Greenblatt, was in line with plenty of Twitterers who started slamming the bit before the show’s cast made its goodnights. “He managed to be offensive, insensitive & unfunny all at the same time Quite a feat,” wrote Greenblatt.

    I have been watching SNL for well over 40 years. Used to beg my dad to let me stay up to watch Mr. Bill. Keenan Thompson has not done one funny skit ever, if so please name it. Tonight, Larry David, somebody who has done nada for eternity hosts the show because NYC and the Left Coast love him. This show must be subsidized.

    After taking a week to slam alleged sexual predator Harvey Weinstein, NBC’s Saturday Night Live poured great detail into a skit that mocked White House adviser and first female campaign manager to win a presidential election, Kellyanne Conway as a loon and for her makeup. In a skit resembling the hit movie remake of Stephen King’s “IT,” comedian Alex Moffat played CNN’s Anderson Cooper who was being lured into the sewer by his co-star Kate McKinnon, who played Kellyanne Conway. After Moffat chased a piece of paper floating down the street and into a storm drain, McKinnon, done up to...

    Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels has seemingly admitted the show chose not to roast Harvey Weinstein because the embattled film heavyweight is from New York. When Michaels was asked as he was leaving SNL's after-party at 4am why the show avoided the Weinstein controversy, the producer smiled and responded: 'It's a New York thing.' The show had earlier been criticized for not mentioning the sexual harassment allegations leveled against Weinstein this week.

    Dana White is FURIOUS with Jason Aldean -- telling TMZ Sports the country singer's team lied to him about why he couldn't perform in front of Vegas shooting survivors and 1st responders at UFC 216. White says he had reached out to Aldean's camp to sing the national anthem at UFC 216 in Vegas on Saturday night ... an event in which 15 survivors and hundreds of 1st responders were in the crowd. White says Aldean's people turned down the offer -- saying he was shaken up from the shooting and might never perform live again.
