Tracy Morgan Returns To Saturday Night Live

In: Donovan, TV Shows

From 1996 to 2003, Tracy Morgan was a cast member on Saturday Night Live. This October 17, the 46-year-old heads back to his former stomping grounds to host. I fully expect other alums to come back to celebrate this homecoming.

His return marks his first major appearance since he was critically injured in a car accident back in June 2014. That tragedy took the life of his longtime friend and colleague, James McNair.

NBC also revealed two other big names booked to host during SNL’s 41st season. Find out below which two ladies received a call.

While the idea of turning the beloved animated Bambi into a live-action film seems absolutely ridiculous, it’s actually not that far-fetched. At Disney’s current pace of producing live-action versions of their classics, this could become a reality in a few years. Though, it’ll have a hard time living up to this epic Saturday Night Live treatment.

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson transforms everyone’s favorite deer into a gun-slinging bad ass vigilante. Along with his furry friends, he bursts into a hunting lodge and open fires on hunters who kill for sport.

Cecily Strong plays Michelle Rodriguez, while Jay Pharoah and Taran Killam imitate Tyrese Gibson and Vin Diesel in the hilarious sketch. Find out which furry characters they play below.

April 11 ya’ll. Mark your calendars now!!! This is no April Fools joke. Cookie effing Lyons is heading to Saturday Night Live. Words can’t even describe my excitement. Taraji P. Henson is going to slay it during her hosting debut.

Even though the long-running late night staple already aired an Empire spoof during Chris Hemsworth’s episode, I expect another sketch based on the FOX hip-hop drama to come. Fingers crossed, they poke fun at Cookie slammin down Boo Boo Kitty on the pool table.

NBC also revealed that Michael Keaton is also hosting. The Birdman actor will appear on the April 4 show, marking his third time presiding over Studio 8H. Find out which musical act is on board for each episode below.

The reigning People’s Sexiest Man Alive hosted this week’s Saturday Night Live. Naturally, some of the skits required Chris Hemsworth stepping into his Thor costume once again and more importantly, without his shirt. It should be a crime to cover up that muscular body with clothes :)

Some of the highlights from the 31-year-old Aussie’s episode included an Empire spoof, Chris twerking on the Iggy Azalea Show and him channeling his inner porn star.

Hemsworth kicked off the show by reuniting with his brothers Liam, Luke and previously unknown fourth brother Callum played by Kenan Thompson. Check out all the skits below and weigh in on your favorites afterward.

SCHWING!!! NBC’s decision to devote the entire night to Saturday Night Live proved to be a wise decision. It generated huge ratings for the peacock network.

Not including Super Bowls, the SNL 40th Anniversary Special netted 23.1 million viewers and a 7.8 rating among adults 18-49. Those numbers give the special the honor of being NBC’s s most-watched prime-time entertainment in more than 10 years since the ER finale in 2004. With regards to the coveted demo, it’s the best since the Will & Grace finale in 2006.

The special broadcast also broke records on Twitter. According to Nielsen Social, 1.3 million tweets were sent with 9.1 million viewing them. Guess Amy Poehler’s comment during her return to the Weekend Update desk proved prophetic.

I’m sure the cold weather on the East Coast helped bolster numbers since people were advised to stay indoors. Did you watch the special? Favorite moments? Weigh in below.


NBC went a little overboard with its special celebrating Saturday Night Live’s 40th anniversary. If you count the hour-long red carpet special, the entire tribute clocked in at four and a half hours. Mind you, the last hour was filled mostly with commercials, but still. A tad overkill.

With that being said, there were plenty of memorable moments from a star-studded roster including SNL alums Tina Fey, Kristen Wiig, Jane Curtain, Amy Poehler, Dana Carvey, Mike Myers, Martin Short, Steve Martin, Adam Sandler and plenty more fan favorites. They were joined by A-list stars such as Edward Norton, Emma Stone, Kerry Washington, Jerry Seinfeld, Michael Douglas, Sean Hayes, Melissa McCarthy and Taylor Swift to name just a few.

Throughout the night, Lorne Michaels and company resurrected popular skits including Celebrity Jeopardy once again featuring an inappropriate Sean Connery, Maya Rudolph as Beyonce and Mike Myers and Dana Carvey reuniting for Wayne’s World. Another highlight saw Jane Curtain joining Tina Fey and Amy Poehler at the Weekend Update anchor desk.

The two most disappointing moments was the N Sync reunion that was rumored but never happened and Eddie Murphy’s awkward return to his former stomping grounds. Talk about underwhelming.

Check out my favorite moments below which includes Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake’s sensational opening number referencing SNL’s most iconic moments from the past four decades. Be sure to weigh in afterward on your favorite and least favorite moments.

With Paul Rudd and One Direction on tap, Saturday Night Live rebounded after hitting a season low among adults 18-49 when Josh Hutcherson and Haim dropped by. Creatively speaking, the sketches improved massively as well. Rudd is hilarious on his own, but with surprise help from his Anchorman 2 cast mates, it reached a whole new level.

Kristen Wiig reprised Dooneese in a Sound of Music segment. Will Ferrell, Steve Carrell and David Koechner backed up Rudd during his opening monologue where they faced off against One Direction. Other highlights include the Michaelangelo small penis sketch, 1D concert line clip, the first black movie for white audiences and Jebidiah Atksinson’s holiday movie reviews. Check out all the clips below.

It wasn’t the best episode of the season but it was definitely better than Jennifer Lawrence’s stint earlier this year. The Saturday Night Live writers reallly let her down big time. Also factoring in the disappointment was the extremely high expectations everyone had. Luckily for Josh Hutcherson’s sake there were at least a couple of gems.

Not surprisingly, the show kicked things off with Hunger Games references during Hutcherson’s monologue. Thankfully, it was just limited to that and didn’t dominate the show. The highlights for me include the sketch about the worst subway performers and an amazing 80s tribute which included Josh wearing a mullet wig and lip syncing to “Your Love” by The Outfield. Even though he wasn’t a part of it, Aidy Bryant’s worst lady on an airplane bit was also worth noting.

I should probably mention HAIM killed it as the musical guests. My only complaint is that the sisters didn’t perform “Falling.” That’s my favorite track from them. Check out the skits and performances below.
