Saturday Night Live Finale: Stefon Gets Married!

While not the most memorable episode of the season, the Saturday Night Live finale was important for a number of reasons. Not only did it mark the last episode with Bill Hader , but if reports are true , it was the last with Fred Armisen and Jason Sudeikis as well. The finale also marked host Ben Affleck 's induction into The Five Timer's Club, which wasn't nearly as glamorous as the Argo director expected. //www.tvguide.com/News/Saturday-Night-Live-Finale-Ben-Affleck-Stefons-Wedding-Kanye-West-New-Slaves-1065823.aspx?rss=breakingnews

Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner Joke About Their Marriage on SNL

Ben Affleck joined the "Five-Timers Club" on Saturday Night Livethis weekend and brought his wife Jennifer Garner in on the fun. Still reveling in his Oscar glory, the actor/director wanted to address his acceptance speech from the big night — you know, the one where he thanked Jennifer and said their marriage is "work." So Jennifer was ready to help him with his opening monologue on SNL, and the result is equal parts cute and hilarious. "I thanked my wife while saying the essence of... READ MORE...

'Saturday Night Live' season finale: Ben Affleck and Kanye West win an otherwise forgettable 'SNL'

The "Saturday Night Live" Season 38 finale featured Ben Affleck as the host and Kanye West as the musical guest. They were both great. And this is a very good thing in an "SNL" episode that was otherwise notable only in how forgettable it truly was.A comedy show shouldn't have to depend on its guests for laughs and quality. This is especially true in a season finale. But with few exceptions, there really wasn't much to remember from this "SNL." As the official farewell episode for Bill Hader, we got to see a lot of the comedian (including his big character, Stefon). Amy Poehler's cameo appearance on "Weekend Update" was pretty fun too. It's just that not much on "Saturday Night Live" -- other than a few performances by Affleck -- was funny. For example, did the writers and producers really think they should start off the season finale with an "Argo" gag? Maybe... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/05/-words-which-saturday-night.html

'Saturday Night Live': Amy Poehler is the best at everything, even 'Weekend Update'

Back in the day, Amy Poehler was a necessary and hilarious part of the "Weekend Update" segments on "Saturday Night Live." We got a bittersweet reminder of this during the current season's finale when Poehler joined Seth Meyers for the fake news bit.Whatever you think about the standard quality of "Weekend Update" these days, it's pretty hard to deny that Amy Poehler was a bright spot in an otherwise fairly dull few minutes of television. The finale's "Update" seems to have been pretty much a farewell for Meyers and Bill Hader. After all, it wasn't too long into the segment when all vague semblances of sanity disappeared, only to be replaced by a fever-dream version of "The Graduate" in which Meyers interrupted Stefon's wedding -- with ALF, Gizmo and other oddities in attendance.Sure, it was kind of funny, in a surreal sort of way. But could it compare to Amy Poehler begging the IRS... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/05/saturday-night-live-amy-poehler-is-the-best-at-everything-even-weekend-update.html

'SNL': Ben Affleck Mocks Oscars Speech: 'How I Wish I had Ended' it

Kanye West has a bad attitude in 'Saturday Night Live' season finale promos

Ugh, Kanye West, enough already. The rapper is slated to appear in the May 18 season finale of "Saturday Night Live," and he's made such a point of saying he's only there to perform that it's become entirely off-putting. It's pretty cool to be able to say you're performing on an episode of "SNL," let alone the last episode of its season. Even Justin Bieber was a good sport about appearing after having been mocked time and again on the show, but no, not Kanye. In the promo for the episode, West stands next to Ben Affleck and Fred Armisen and makes his disinterest in the promo sketches clear by barely changing his facial expression and deadpanning his lines without any hint of humor.
