For some reason Kyle Mooney’s Bruce Chandling sketch always seems to be cut from Saturday Night Live. But that’s okay, because we have the internet where we can see the failed comedian character at work. Case in point, last night’s sketch where Louis C.K. accidentally ends up stealing Chandling’s material. Resulting in another great re-imagining of Louie’s opening sequence. Oh, and Bobby Moynihan drinks ketchup.
Louis C.K. is the host of the final episode of Saturday Night Live’s 40th season. That’s right, the year long celebration that is SNL40 is coming to an end and we have a comedy giant hosting the show. It feels like Louis has hosted every season since he first debuted and that is a-okay because in a few short years Louie makes us feel all warm and fuzzy about our beloved SNL.
Here’s the latest sketch, Apartment Hunter, from Man Boobs Comedy. ManBoobs is the sketch comedy brainchild of Danny Tamberelli (The Adventures of Pete & Pete, All That, GTA V), Jeremy L. Balon and Brendan O’Rourke. Born from an undying mutual love of sketch comedy, the guys began writing together in 2007 and have amassed a collection of both self produced and professionally produced online content, as well as a respectable following. Their videos have been featured on VH1, College Humor, Jest and Funny or Die. In addition to these monthly offerings, the guys recently performed two sold out live shows at the 2014 SF Sketchfest and perform regularly in NYC. You can check out the rest of their work here.
Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth his hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend. What does that mean for us? Well, first off, probably a lot of superhero jokes. It also means we might get ourselves a cameo or two from the rest of the Marvel Universe. Zach Brown is also the musical guest on the show, and we definitely know that means some beards and beanie winter hats.
Alright, here we have it, our first episode of Saturday Night Live since SNL 40 turned the world on its head, and the Dakota Johnson (at her first time hosting) continues to appear all over the place to plug 50 Shades of Grey as the guy who played the film’s title character continues to grow his beard and show up almost nowhere. Johnson, who up until this movie was probably best known for the title role on the short-lived FOX sitcom, Ben & Kate and for having famous parents, Don Johnson and Melanie Griffin. So, after the hugeness that was SNL 40, the writers and cast had to get back to work with Johnson in the driver’s seat. How did she do? Well, kinda sorta alright, maybe, I can’t even… Read More
This is the only commercial recording made by Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. It was made in 1927. This gives us a chance to hear what they sounded like in the 1920s. The record is an attempt at comedy. They were better at baseball without question.
SNL Host Dakota Johnson and Taran Killam Beg Her Mom To Watch 50 Shades in these new promos for the upcoming February 28th episode with musical guest Alabama Shakes.

Last night’s Saturday Night Live SNL 40 anniversary special had everything – some classic sketches revisited, some new ones, montages galore and a ton of old friends. Now they can add 23 million viewers to that list.
The anniversary of the iconic sketch show drew 23.1 million total viewers from 8-11pm when it aired, pulling in a 7.8 demo rating (numbers that will more than likely change a bit when the final hour hour gets included). Making it the best rated programming for NBC in nearly a decade, a title previously owned by the Will & Grace series finale.
For comparison, the NBA All-Star game aired at the same time as SNL 40 and never did better than 7.2M in the ratings. A 12% increase in audience over last year and sizeable number for cable but still not enough to win the night. However, the All-Star game is touting its social media presence, where 1.1M Tweets were sent about the game vs the 1.3 SNL 40 earned.
