Kevin Hart is pumped to host "Saturday Night Live" for the second time, but more importantly, he's ready to open his heart up to love. In the above promo, the comedian -- who is set to host Jan. 17 in conjunction with the release of his new movie, "The Wedding Ringer" -- reveals that his new year's resolution is "to be less self-involved and more interested in other people." Unfortunately, he fails right away by not asking Aidy Bryant for her resolution and then signing her shirt without her asking. RELATED: 'SNL' investigates Kris Kringle and 5 other must-see Serial parodies Luckily for fans, Bryant's resolution finally comes out, and apparently it's "to not fall in love," which is unfortunate for her since Hart's real resolution is to fall in love with Bryant. (Oh, and his other resolution is to cut out salt from his diet because he eats "a dumb amount of salt"... http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Zap2it/~3/0MtAeirQKjc/saturday_night_live_promo_kevin_hart_aidy_bryant-2015-01
It was all about awkward exchanges and New Years Resolutions between host Kevin Hart and castmember Aidy Bryant on the latest Saturday Night Live promos. After vowing to be less self-absorbed for the new year, The Wedding Ringer starcompletely missed an opportunity to engage with Bryant, instead simply autographing her shirt and dismissing her.

Which TV series will your friends (and the entire internet) be talking about this week? Stay informed—or at least be able to fake it—with SideReel's weekly guide to The Most Important Shows on TV. It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia (Season Premiere) Wednesday at 10:00pm on FXX Why: Because a comedy this mean and weird shouldn't have lasted as long as it has (this will be its tenth season), in a world where TV is supposedly all about relatability. Then again, most people are awful, so maybe this show is TOTALLY relatable! Also, it takes place in Philadelphia, which is the greatest city in America. Prepare to talk about: Which one of the gang you are (if you don't know, just take my answer: I'm a noxious version of Dennis without the venality!); how some of their ideas make a sense when you sit down and really think about 'em ; how it's weird that Rhea Perlman has never been on the show (but also make sure to remark that she's great on The Mindy Project ). 12 Monkeys (Series Premiere) Friday at 9:00pm on SyFy Why: Because the movie was terrific (and hey, it ALSO took place in Philadelphia), even if came out almost 20 years ago, and SyFy really wants to make this its prestige piece. OK, it's lacking in Brad Pitt, but it makes up for it in concept (time travel to stop a plague before it happens). Prepare to talk about: If it lives up to its silver screen namesake; whether you'd want to survive a worldwide epidemic that basically wipes out humanity (sure, you'd be alive, but there'd be, like, zero amenities); how Brad Pitt's character (Goines) is a LADY in this new version. Yes, a LADY! Saturday Night Live (Midseason Premiere) Saturday at 11:30pm on NBC Why: Because Kevin Hart is hosting, and he's one of the biggest stars in the world (plus—stop me if you're sensing a pattern—he's from Philadelphia); meanwhile, Sia is the musical guest and she's weird as hell! Should be fun! Prepare to talk about: Your favorite sketch (if you don't watch it, just say "the one with Kate McKinnon... you know, that one," because she is the best and no one will argue); how weird Sia is and how she either did or did not sing "Chandelier" which is a legit terrible song; how Kevin Hart is consistently funnier than SNL .

The first season of "Serial" might be over, but, as "Saturday Night Live" recently proved, the "Serial" parodies are far from done. On Saturday (Dec. 20), a ridiculously hilarious, spot-on parody of the popular weekly podcast about the murder of a teenage girl -- yes, it does sound a little bad all written out like that -- aired on "SNL." The main difference? In the above video, host Sarah Koenig (played by Cecily Strong) isn't investigating a murder case -- she's trying to figure out if Kris Kringle (aka Santa Claus) actually exists and, if he does, how exactly he's able to hit every single house in one night. Oh, and she also wants to talk about that Nisha call. RELATED: Funny or Die's 'Serial' parody reveals who actually killed Hae Min Lee Of course, "SNL" is not the first or the last to parody the podcast.
