Thoughts on Blake Lively

Post your thoughts on what you thought of the show after it's aired!

Good, bad, ugly? Best sketch, worst sketch? Did Blake Lively exceed my inital expectations (i.e that she would bomb)?

Comment, comment, comment!

Congrats to SNL alum Maya Rudolph who gave birth to a baby girl, Lucille, on November 6! This is Maya's second daughter with director Paul Thomas Anderson.

Tareq & Michelle Salahi to Appear on SNL?

You know that couple, Tareq and Michaele Salahi, who gatecrashed a White House party and have allegedly been cast in Real Housewives of DC? They might just be appearing on SNL tonight as themselves in the cold open!

The Washington Post is reporting that the cold open tonight will feature President Obama giving a speech to his cabinet when he's interrupted by the Salahis who have gatecrashed the speech.

Not a bad premise, I guess? What do you guys think?

I'm On A Boat - Grammy Nominated?!?


The Lonely Island and T-Pain have been nominated for a mother____in' Grammy, y'all! In the Best Rap Collaboration category!

While I'm so glad that the Grammy Academy (or whoever is responsible for the Grammys) have chosen to h0nour The Lonely Island in this way, I can't help but majorly smirk while writing this post!

Congrats, dudes!

Hey SNL/Twitter fans, guess what!?

Jenny Slate has jumped on the Twitter bandwagon! You can check out what she's thinking here at -

Here's a sampling of her Twitter thoughts -

"I love nasim pedrad! Ladies for ladies! Bras! Tampons! Big huge pads! "

"Waiting for a bikini wax is like waiting to get slapped in the face. It's also just super annoying¬ something I should be sharing online"

"Dear Jenny Slate: spacing out about whether or not Muppets wear underpants is a waste of time. Go to sleep & wake up when u r a grown up. "

Go ahead & follow Jenny!

SNL Hires Jessi Klein

Well-regarded NY comedian Jessi Klein (or Janeane Garofalo's doppelganger) has been hired mid-season by SNL to join the writing staff! You may know Klein from her appearances on The Showbiz Show with David Spade, Best Week Ever & Michael and Michael Have Issues. A quick browse through her IMDb credits shows that girl has worked as a writer on Samantha Who, The Showbiz Show & M&MHI. She also worked as "executive in charge of production" on shows like Chapelle's Show and Stella. In other words, Jessi Klein has a lot of street cred.
This brings to 6 the number of female writers on SNL - with Jessi Klein joining Emily Spivey, Jessica Conrad, Marika Sawyer, Christine Nangle and Jillian Bell to form the most oestrogenic writing staff on late-night television!

Good luck, Klein!

Bill Hader Discusses What's Up With That & Taylor Swift

Maybe "discuss" is an exaggeration, but he explains how Mindy Kaling came to be on the show & describes James Franco as a friend of the show!
