‘SNL’: Seth Meyers’ Goodbye Includes Amy Poehler, Bill Hader, Andy Samberg and Fred Armisen

Amy Poehler, Andy Samberg and Bill Hader — playing Stefon — bid goodbye to Seth Meyers in his final episode of “Saturday Night Live” as a member of the cast. Fred Armisen also provided a cameo. Meyers, who takes over NBC’s “Late Night” this month, began his final “Weekend Update” in his usual understated manner. In between dropping topical jokes, Meyers welcomed new Update character, Buford Callaway (Taran Killam), who griped about the snow that plagued the South this week with a lovely drawl.   Read More... http://www.thewrap.com/snl-saturday-night-live-seth-meyers-melissa-mccarthy-imagine-dragons-nbc

'SNL': Seth Meyers gets Amy Poehler, Andy Samberg and Stefon for his goodbye

Melissa McCarthy took on "Saturday Night Live" for the third time -- did it live up to her first two hosting gigs, where she turned in a couple of go-for-broke performances? Well ... not exactly. McCarthy always gives 110 percent, but the material given to her this time around was pretty weak. In fact, you could have just turned off the show after "Weekend Update's" goodbye to Seth Meyers. Thoughts on the episode here, with video to come Sunday morning:The GoodSuper Bowl Cold Open: With the premise that Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers have to cancel on the Super Bowl halftime, the NFL grabs whoever is available and that turns out to be some Broadway stars. The halftime show turns into a hilariously theatrical performance, with Kenan Thompson as Broadway legend Ben Vereen playing Richard Sherman and lyrics like, "There's no Seattle, there's no Denver, there's just love."

Seth Meyers leaves 'Saturday Night Live': Relive his best moments

It's on to greener pastures for Seth Meyers, as the current "Weekend Update" co-anchor and head writer of "Saturday Night Live" readies to depart his post after 13 years to take over "Late Night" on Feb. 24.But before he does, the funnyman has one final show to see through on Saturday (Feb. 1). In anticipation of Meyers' "SNL" swan song, it's time to take a look back at some of the shining moments from his tenure on the long-running sketch show -- both onscreen and as a writer.'Patriotic Briefs'Meyers' first sketch appearance ever came in the show's second post-9/11 show, in a bit that gently mocked the intense displays of patriotism in the following days. The star is, without a doubt, Will Ferrell and his bare behind, but Meyers gets in a few pretty funny reaction shots.'Harry Potter: Hermione's Growth Spurt'Opposite Rachel Dratch's miniature Harry Potter and Lindsay Lohan's buxom Hermione Granger, Meyers is perfect... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2014/02/seth-meyers-leaves-saturday-night-live-relive-his-best-moments.html

[Video] 'Saturday Night Live' Promos: Melissa McCarthy Punches Kenan Thompson in the Face

The big event a gazillion people worldwide will be watching this weekend is obviously the Super Bowl.

Melissa McCarthy Decks Kenan Thompson, Dances ‘Til She Nearly Drops in ‘SNL’ Promo (Video)

Melissa McCarthy will return to “Saturday Night Live” this weekend with musical guest Imagine Dragons. The show will mark McCarthy’s third go as host, but the funny lady doesn’t take kindly to the common locution that suggests this one will be “the charm.” McCarthy took cast veteran Kenan Thompson’s innocent uttering of the idiom as a suggestion her first two hosting attempts were terrible. Fists flew from the diminutive “Mike & Molly” star.   Read More... http://www.thewrap.com/melissa-mccarthy-kenan-thompson-snl-saturday-night-live-promo-nbc-seth-meyers

'SNL' Promos: Melissa McCarthy Pitches New Super Bowl Names (Video)

Melissa McCarthy returns for a third time on Saturday Night Live -- with the Super Bowl and the Olympics topics of the hour. Because the Super Bowl isn't being broadcast on NBC (it's on Fox this year), the Mike & Molly star was forced to use NBC's pre-approved alternative terms for the big game. Rooting for the Seattle Seahawks or the Denver Broncos in the Live Ball War: The Game? Curious how the teams will fare in the cold weather during the Televised Man Battle With Ball? McCarthy and SNL regular Kenan Thompson seem to think one of these terms will catch on.  Read More...   http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/thr/television/~3/nblnP8XzI1w/story01.htm

Jonah Hill hosts 'Saturday Night Live': Watch his best and worst sketches

Jonah Hill hosted "Saturday Night Live" for the third time on Jan. 25, and he was joined by not only his "Wolf of Wall Street" co-star Leonardo DiCaprio (making every female in the country extremely jealous when they recreated an iconic "Titanic" scene) but he was also reunited with his "Superbad" co-star and BFF Michael Cera for a hilarious and metaSpike Jonze parody.All in all, Hill made it clear why he was completing an "SNL" hat trick with his commitment to all his sketches and willingness to do anything ... even wear women's makeup. Watch his best and worst sketches below:Best - Cold open: Men's Heterosexual Figure SkatingWith all the controversy surrounding the Russian anti-gay laws in preparation for the Sochi Winter Olympics, the US decided to avoid any issues and send a completely heterosexual men's figure stating team to the games.
