Blossom by blossom the spring begins — and so does a new stretch of Saturday Night Live episodes! This batch kicks off with living legend, singer, voice actress extraordinaire Maya Rudolph returning to host.

    Saturday Night Live’s cold open featured the evening’s host, former SNL cast member Maya Rudolph, as the host of a dating show set in Miami Beach, Fl. for spring break.

    Jerod Harris/Getty Images Martha Stewart’s stint in prison over insider trading charges cost her the opportunity to host Saturday Night Live, she revealed in a new interview. “My only big regret that I can talk about is that Saturday Night Live asked me to host.

Stewart’s prison sentence was followed by months of home confinement and probation.

    Critics are panning "Saturday Night Live" for what they described as its "remarkably weak" return to the airwaves following a six-week hiatus that encompassed a chaotic news cycle.  Viewers who tuned into the long-running NBC sketch comedy show noticed that Saturday's episode largely avoided mocking President Biden after spending the past four years ridiculing former President Donald Trump, played by Alec Baldwin.  Los Angeles Times TV critic Lorraine Ali pulled no punches with a review headlined, "Maybe Trump did kill satire: ‘SNL’ kicks off Biden era in remarkably weak form." Ali opened her review with the question: "What will late-night comedy do without Trump?"

    Dave Chappelle is taking on the challenge of hosting “Saturday Night Live” this weekend, following the 2020 presidential election date. Chappelle, 47, hits the stage on Nov. 7, and it will be the comedian’s second time hosting the post-election episode of “SNL.” In 2016, he joked about Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton, touched on Black Lives Matter, the death of the gorilla Harambe and more in an 11-minute monologue.

    Loading the player... In 2016, legendary comedian Dave Chappelle was the first to host Saturday Night Live after Donald Trump was elected president of the United States of America. The week following our trips to the polls, Chappelle took to the stage with a monologue meant to heal the growing divide in the nation after a contentious election season. Comic extraordinaire Dave Chappelle, shown at a January brunch event by Roc Nation in Los Angeles, will be hosting the first “Saturday Night Live” after the 2020 election, airing this Saturday, Nov. 7.

    Comedian Dave Chappelle will be hosting Saturday Night Live‘s first episode following the 2020 presidential elections, EW reported. Not much has been revealed about what the episode will entail but, given Chappelle’s comedic style, he won’t be holding back from hilariously commenting on the election’s results. The episode is set to air four days after Election Day, on November 7, at 11:30 p.m. Eastern on NBC. Fans of the popular comedian didn’t take long to react to the news of his SNL hosting gig on social media. Some people are excited to hear what he will have to say after the elections, while others are hoping the results won’t be the same as four years ago. “Dave Chappelle is a genius, the best observer of US culture and politics of our time,” one person tweeted. “Let’s just hope and pray that the skits in this upcoming post-election episode don’t mimic...
    Comedian John Mulaney provided an inexplicable “both sides” argument during his Saturday Night Live monologue, suggesting essentially “nothing” would change if former Vice President Joe Biden beat President Donald Trump in Tuesday’s presidential election. Hide “Oh, yes, I’m supposed to make an announcement,” he says. “On November 3rd, there is an elderly man contest.” Hide “So there’s two elderly men, and you’re supposed to pick your favorite of the elderly men,” he continues. “You can put it in the mail, or you can go and write down which elderly man you like, and we’ll add them all up. Then, we might have the same elderly man, or we might have a new elderly man. But just rest assured, no matter what happens, nothing much will change in the United States.” “The rich will continue to prosper while the poor languish. Families will be upended by mental illness and drug addiction....
    John Mulaney is undeniably one of the funniest stand-up comedians working right now. His extended bit comparing Donald Trump to a “horse loose in a hospital” from his excellent 2018 special Kid Gorgeous at Radio City is arguably one of the best jokes ever told about the 45th president of the United States. But during an otherwise solid monologue in the final Saturday Night Live episode before the 2020 election, the host delivered a major miss when talking about the race between Trump and Joe Biden. After a handful of jokes about the coronavirus and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, Mulaney told viewers, “Oh, yes, I’m supposed to make an announcement. On November 3rd there is an elderly man contest.” “So there’s two elderly men and you’re supposed to pick your favorite of the elderly men,” he continued. “You can put it in the mail or you can go and...

    Hello from the other side — of the scale. All eyes were on Adele for her “Saturday Night Live” hosting gig this weekend, showcasing her seriously slimmed-down physique. “I know I look really really different since you last saw me,” the singer said during her opening monologue, “but actually because of all the COVID restrictions and the travel bans, I had to travel light and I could only bring half of me, and this is the half I chose.” Over the past year, the 32-year-old songstress has drawn both strong praise and rebukes for her recent dramatic weight loss. After posting an almost unrecognizable body-baring photo on Instagram in May to celebrate her birthday, some fans freaked out that losing that much weight is unhealthy.

    “Saturday Night Live” is milking the 2020 presidential election. The late-night sketch show revealed plans Thursday to air an original episode on Nov. 7, just days after the election Tuesday, Nov. 3. It will mark the 46th season’s sixth consecutive show — a scheduling first in the show’s history. Neither a host nor a musical guest was announced yet. “SNL” was sidelined in the spring due to the coronavirus and produced several virtual episodes to close out the 45th season. The show returned to Studio 8H on Oct. 3 with some familiar faces: Alec Baldwin as President Donald Trump and Maya Rudolph as Kamala Harris. But creator Lorne Michaels also brought in an even bigger name, Jim Carrey, to play Joe Biden — to lackluster effect. A week later, the show even flopped when lampooning the wayward fly that took refuge on Mike Pence’s (Beck Bennett) head during the...
