'Saturday Night Live' Kicks Off 2012 With Charles Barkley, Gambling Jokes (Video)

  Third time might be the charm for  Saturday Night Live  host  Charles Barkley  -- just don't tell him that. The retired NBA player finds the saying outdated. At least that's what he says in the latest, particularly dry, crop of promos for the NBC series.  SNL  returns on the first Saturday of the year, Jan. 7, with Barkley and musical guest  Kelly Clarkson .

Charles Barkley's 'Saturday Night Live' promos: Don't forget the 'Sir'

Bill Hader teamed up with Charles Barkley to film the latter's first "Saturday Night Live" promos of the week.Barkley is always game when he hosts "SNL" -- this is his third time, after all -- but just because he's familiar with the Rockefeller Center studios doesn't mean cast members can get informal with the basketball great.In the promos, things get a little awkward when Hader forgets to address his statuesque host by his proper name: "Sir Charles." (Geez, have some respect, will ya?) Things get even more awkward (for Hader) when Barkley doesn't remember their secret handshake. Apparently their time together meant more to Hader than it did to Barkley.Check out the promos above. Barkley hosts "SNL" for the third time on Jan. 7 with musical guest Kelly Clarkson....

Tim Tebow sketch on 'SNL': Good, clean fun or mean spirited?

Tebowmania made its way from Sunday afternoon to Saturday night on Dec. 17. "SNL" poked fun at the religious Denver Broncos quarterback by bringing in "Jesus" to discuss his involvement in the team's winning streak.The premise of the sketch is Broncos' overtime victory against the Chicago Bears in which everything fell into place during the waning moments, including two long field goals by Denver's kicker Matt Prater. While Tebow (Taran Killam) prays, Jesus (Jason Sudeikis) enters the locker room.As Jesus, Sudeikis complains to the team, "It's not a good week if every week, I, the Son of God, have to come in, drop everything and bail out the Denver Broncos."He then suggests the team do things to make their lives easier, like study the playbook.Killam says, "The Holy Bible is my playbook." Sudeikis then says he prays to Prater (Andy Samberg), noting his exceptional skills in the kicking game. This causes surprise from Prater...

Daniel Radcliffe, Charles Barkley to host 'SNL' in January

Daniel Radcliffe, the man formerly known as Harry Potter, will make his "Saturday Night Live" debut on January 14 during the second new "SNL" of 2012. Hosting the first show of the new year will be Charles Barkley, who had the same honor back in 2010.The musical guests will be Kelly Clarkson on Jan. 7 with Barkley, and Lana Del Rey on Jan. 14 with Radcliffe.Although we very much enjoyed Barkley's last hosting stint, we're especially excited to watch Radcliffe make fun of himself. The guy's got a great sense of humor and is not afraid to look silly -- nor is he so touchy he can't poke fun at his own career. The hosts who are 100 percent game for anything are always our favorites -- even if they fail at some sketches, it's hard not to admire their commitment.Radcliffe wraps up his Broadway run in "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying"...

'Saturday Night Live': Jimmy Fallon brings back Pat Sullivan with Rachel Dratch and Amy Poehler. Tommy, you rollin'?

When Jimmy Fallon was announced as the mid-season finale host of "Saturday Night Live," we have to admit we had our fingers crossed that some of his former cast mates would stop by to keep him company as he returned to the 30 Rock stages.And they did!The cold open for Saturday night's show featured Fallon's almost-iconic character (give him a few years) Pat Sullivan, the South Boston high school student who we accompanied on many a field trip back in the day. Of course, time has passed. Pat and his girlfriend, Denise/Zazoo -- yes, Rachel Dratch returned, folks! -- and their ever-present camera man Tommy had some trouble sneaking in to the high school reunion.Even Amy Poehler stopped by, playing a former classmate who had left high school because of a serious case of mononucleosis. (FYI, that "mono" turned 15 this year.) Part of the appeal of "SNL" is the sense of nostalgia it offers...
