Football Protests: Jay-Z Stands For Kaepernick On ‘SNL’, Fox Ignores Kneeling Dolphins In London

Jay-Z stood up for Colin Kaepernick on Saturday Night Live last night, wearing a football jersey with #7 on front and “Colin K” on the back. The sartorial shout-out came as the rapper performed his “Bam” with a guest appearance by Damien Marley.

‘SNL’ Sketches: Big Chickens, Gabby Fliplets & Another Close Encounter

A silly chicken routine, a Pizza Hut hoax and a spot-on rip in HGTV’s programming fabric made for a welcome-back set of Saturday Night Live sketches last night, as the show returned for its 43rd season.
With guest host Ryan Gosling game to go, last night’s roster of live skits kept apace, slipping only a bit towards the end with “Dive Bar,” a standard Kenan Thompson affair in which the longtime cast member plays a singer whose verbal onstage ramblings get too personal for…

Ryan Gosling Goes La-La For Monologue & Freaks Over ‘Avatar’ Font – ‘SNL’ Highlights

Saturday Night Live made yet another fine casting choice last night, though it had nothing to do with political doppelgangers (though there was plenty of that too). Lorne Michael’s wisest move of the just-beginning season 43 was hiring the ever amenable Ryan Gosling as its first host. With Blade Runner 2049 about to drop, the heat-seeking Gosling was an obvious catch, and his ease on the SNL stage guided the cast-shaken series through any first-night jitters.
Ok, so maybe…

‘SNL’: Alec Baldwin’s Trump Hangs Up On “So Nasty” San Juan Mayor

Alec Baldwin’s Donald Trump kicked off Saturday Night Live by hanging up on the pleading mayor of San Juan. “That woman was so nasty,” said Baldwin, using one of Trump’s favorite insults. (See a short clip below).
SNL doesn’t seem to have lost any of its political snap as it starts it 43rd season with a sketch as current as today’s presidential tweets. With featured (and underutilized) player Melissa Villaseñor as Carmen Yulín Cruz, SNL‘s cold open had a polo-shirted…

‘SNL’: Jimmy Fallon Is Jared Kushner To Baldwin’s Trump; Melissa McCarthy As Easter Spicey

Update with video Melissa McCarthy paid an Easter visit to SNL, reprising her Sean Spicer, this time in an Easter Bunny costume just as the real Spicer did during the George W. Bush days. McCarthy’s belligerent Spicer once again addressed the press, trying to make amends for that “Holocaust Centers” snafu by talking about “Concentration Clubs.”
Wishing everyone a Happy Easter, McCarthy rode off in a mobile egg. “Spicey’s gotta hippity hop,” she said, “cos this is probably…

‘Breaking Bad’s Walter White For DEA, Says Baldwin-Free ‘SNL’ Cold Open

Bryan Cranston made a surprise and fresh replacement for Alec Baldwin in tonight’s Saturday Night Live cold open, reprising his Breaking Bad Walter White character as Donald Trump’s choice to head the Drug Enforcement Administration.
“Donald Trump and I know it’s time to make America cook again,” said Cranston as TV’s greatest meth-maker. “We want to fill this nation with red, white and a whole lot of blue.”
SNL‘s cold open started off unsurprisingly: Beck Bennett as…
