'Saturday Night Live' addresses Hurricane Sandy with Bloomberg address skit: Watch

We knew "Saturday Night Live" would have to address Hurricane Sandy this weekend, and with so many people on the eastern seaboard still suffering without heat, clean drinking water, or homes, it can't have been easy to take a comedic look at the week's events. "SNL" did it though, and they didn't waste any time. The show's first opening skit was a press conference from Mayor Bloomberg, of course featuring the animated sign language translator who has become a late-night fodder favorite over the course of the weeks.Bobby Moynihan even stepped in as New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, but the best part was definitely Fred Armison's Bloomberg warning to the Spanish speakers of the city.... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/11/saturday-night-live-addresses-hurricane-sandy-with-bloomberg-address-skit-watch.html

'Saturday Night Live': Louis CK reflects on Sandy before taking the stage

The first "Saturday Night Live" following a major national event is always worth watching, if only for a fresh comedic perspective on something serious. This week's "SNL" is particularly powerful, since the heart of the show beats in New York City, which is still suffering from the devastation of Hurricane Sandy. That wasn't lost on host Louis C.K., who wrote the following heartfelt email to his fans a few hours before taking the stage. Hello. Its louis here. I'm clacking this to you on my phone in my dressing room here at studio 8H, right in 30 rockefeller center, in Manhattan, new york city, new york, america, world, current snapshot of all existence everywhere. Tonight I'm hosting Saturday Night Live, something I zero ever in my life saw happening to me. And yet here it is completely most probably happening (I mean, ANYTHING could NOT happen. So we'll see). I've been working here all week... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/11/saturday-night-live-louis-ck-reflects-on-sandy-before-taking-the-stage.html

Saturday Night Live To Air Despite Sandy's Best Efforts

Despite a traumatic week in New York City thanks to Hurricane Sandy, those over at Studio 8 have managed to power up to bring us tonight’s episode of Saturday Night Live with first time host and mega Emmy winner Louis CK  Joining the Louie star as the musical guest are fellow first timers, Fun. Although his history in comedy ranges from a large background in stand up to a very successful television show on FX, Louis CK admitted this week on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon that he was less than stellar at Monday’s first sketch rehearsal.  In fact, he was so bad (according to him), that he feared Lorne Michaels might just pull the plug on his hosting gig and chalk it up to a Hurricane Sandy issue. After drawing some inspiration from his past stand up gigs, however, Louis CK star pulled it together and has promised a very funny show for tonight’s episode of Saturday Night Live . Louis CK kicks off what looks to be a funny month of SNL with Anne Hathaway heading to the studio for her third go around at hosting on November 10 th with musical guest Rihanna. On November 17 th and just time for Thanksgiving, Jeremy Renner takes his first shot as the Saturday Night Live host when he is joined by four time musical guest Maroon 5. Saturday Night Live airs Saturdays at 11:30/10:30c on NBC. http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/tvovermind/tvnews/~3/uKicAjDRM6w/
