'Saturday Night Live': New Weekend Update anchor Colin Jost debuts

Jim Parson's "Saturday Night Live" hosting debut also marked the first appearance of head writer Colin Jost as the newest co-host of Weekend Update alongside Cecily Strong, and he charmed his way through the whole ten minutes. Jost and Strong together bring a younger vibe to the show, and Jost's charming smile masked some of his nerves. Strong's months of experience showed, as she seemed remarkably more comfortable next to him. The jokes were sharp, but you could still imagine Seth Meyers' delivery as Jost read them. Given some time, he could fit in nicely. But for now, it just made Meyers' departure much more obvious. What did you think of Jost's debut?

"Saturday Night Live" proved how hard it is to spoof the Oscar-nominated drama "12 Years A Slave" with a sketch that focused on white actors who just felt very uncomfortable auditioning for the role of white slave owners.   Read More... //www.hitfix.com/comedy/saturday-night-live-proves-its-hard-to-spoof-12-years-a-slave

'Saturday Night Live': Watch Jim Parsons host the worst 'SNL' of the season

Jim Parsons seemed game for anything during his first stint hosting "Saturday Night Live" -- too bad he didn't get the material he needed to make his turn memorable, or at least more memorable than being the worst "SNL" episode of the season. Watch the skits below and judge for yourself. Cold Open: "Ellen" It's always nice when the show starts with a topical pop culture-related skit rather than a stale political one, so Kate McKinnon's reliable Ellen DeGeneres impression was a great one to trot out on the eve of her Oscar hosting duties. Host Jim Parsons played everyone's favorite Olympic commentator Johnny Weir, and while the physical resemblance was amazing, it was hard to believe it was anyone other than Parsons sitting there. The problem is that Parsons' speaking cadence is so distinctive that it's hard to imagine him as anyone else.

Lena Dunham Will Host SNL March 8th

With how popular and controversial  Girls  has been since its premiere three years ago, I’m surprised it took this long for Lena Dunham to host SNL. But she’s finally be rounded up, and will be  hosting March 8th  with musical guest The National. It’s anyone’s guess what sort of skits Dunham will do, but with NBC’s relatively tight decency standards, I doubt there will be too much overlap with the show. There will definitely be  at least  one Girls skit, but what form that will take, I don’t know. Read More... //www.tvovermind.com/tv-news/lena-dunham-will-host-snl-march-8th-230077
