Adam Driver hosts ridiculous 'America's Funniest Cat Videos' on 'SNL'

Adam Driver spent a good part of his Saturday Night Live appearance channeling the dour and unstable Kylo Ren, but his hosting stint also allowed him to tap into a more exuberant persona, as TV show host and cat video narrator Finn Raynal-Beads Reynolds. As the host of Americas...    Read More... http://feeds.ew.com/~r/entertainmentweekly/tv/coverage/~3/e12j9spyklo/snl-adam-driver-americas-funniest-cats

Kylo Ren Plays Undercover Boss on Saturday Night Live, But Cant Hide His Innate, Adam Driver-Level Intensity

  So, just to get a little geeky: Is SNL implying that Kylo Ren and not General Hux is the boss of the Starkiller Base? Because it seems from The Force Awakens that Kylo operates outside of the First Order's command structure and reports to no one except Commander Snoke, like some emo badass executive consultant. Though, we'll forgive any inconsistencies just to enjoy the moment when Leslie Jones shouts at Adam Driver, "I haven't had my muffin yet, Matt!"   http://www.vulture.com/2016/01/snl-sends-kylo-ren-undercover.html

  To honor David Bowie, who passed away last Sunday at the age of 69, SNL brought on Fred Armisen to reminisce about the time he stayed up to watch Bowie's 1979 appearance on the show. "David Bowie whatever space he was in, whatever medium he was using, and that night for me, he transformed live television," Armisen said, before introducing a short clip of Bowie's performance of "The Man Who Sold the World." Watch that clip above and clips from the rest of Bowie's appearance below.    Read More...   http://www.vulture.com/2016/01/snl-pays-tribute-to-david-bowie.html

NBC Chief Defends Donald Trump Appearances on SNL, Tonight Show

NBC doesnt know how to quit Donald Trump.

Simon Rich Picks His 9 Favorite Obscure Saturday Night Live Sketches He Wrote

  With FXX's Man Seeking Woman returning for its second season last Wednesday, we asked the show's mastermind Simon Rich to look back on his years as a Saturday Night Live writer and pick the most obscure sketches he penned. He obligingly chose nine, with one caveat: "All of my SNL sketches were obscure, so I went for my favorites." With constant praise for the cast, the hosts, and his co-writers John Mulaney, Marika Sawyer, Mike O'Brien, Colin Jost, and Heather Anne Campbell, and a ton of self-deprecation reserved for himself, Rich took us through the thought process of creating one-joke premises, making dog death funny, adding in ass humor, and much more. "It's very important to note that none of these sketches were popular or particularly successful," he says. "These are sketches I unfortunately loved writing."   Read More... http://www.vulture.com/2016/01/simon-rich-favorite-obscure-saturday-night-live-sketches.html

Adam Driver and Kate McKinnon Poke Fun at His Intensity in This Weeks SNL Promos, Because Hello, Its Right There

  Don't you hate it when you laugh and joke and dance like everything's okay, but everything's not okay? This week's SNL promos gently tease this week's host Adam Driver about his signature brooding stare and dramatic earnestness. Turns out those are both much harder to pull off when you're housing waffle fries. If Driver can make fun of himself in a genuinely charming way, chances are he's going to do great on Saturday provided, of course, he is allowed to excuse himself every 15 minutes to slam his fists on a circuit board and scream and scream.   Read More...   http://www.vulture.com/2016/01/adam-driver-is-very-intense-in-his-snl-promos.html
