SNL Summons Chris Hemsworth as First March 2015 Host

The gallant extravagance of NBC’s 40th anniversary SNL special left us less-than-enthused for 50 Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson to return us to normal this Saturday, but our first March host will verily bring the thunder. Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth will take the SNL stage as our March 7 host, but what musical accompaniment mayeth the Asgardian Avenger summon?

SNL’s Norm MacDonald Tells a Crazy SNL 40 Story About “Celebrity Jeopardy!” and Eddie Murphy

SNL episodes are hard, often frenzied work, so you can imagine the sort of time and dedication and stress that went into the SNL 40 show, which featured new and former cast members along with several guest stars. One of the highlights of the three and a half hour event was the return of “Celebrity Jeopardy!” with Norm MacDonald, Will Ferrell and Darrell Hammond reprising their iconic sketch roles alongside fellow SNL stars, including Kenan Thompson doing a hilarious (and timely) Bill Cosby impression. But according to MacDonald, Thompson wasn’t originally supposed to be in the sketch: Eddie Murphy was.

‘SNL’ and Jim Carrey Take on Those Matthew McConaughey Car Commercials

Yeah it is a little strange that a newly minted Oscar winner like Matthew McConaughey would be caught dead making television commercials for Lincoln cars. However, it did lead to a series of fake 'SNL' commercials featuring guest host Jim Carrey playing the 'Dallas Buyers Club' and 'True Detective' star, so who are we to complain?

‘SNL’ Deleted Scene: Anna Kendrick Gives Nickelodeon’s “ZAP!” a Dark History

This past weekend's 'SNL' installment with Anna Kendrick and musical guest Pharrell proved to be one of the stronger episodes of the season to date, and while we wait for this coming weekend to return 'Neighbors' star Seth Rogen to the stage, Kendrick had a bit more left in the tank. Watch the secret, dark history to '90s Nickelodeon series "ZAP!," in the latest 'SNL' deleted scene!

‘SNL’ Scorecard: Louis C.K. May or May Not Have a Darth Vader Up His Butt

So, yes, welcome to 'SNL' Scorecard’s third official home (we started way back in 2010 at Movieline before moving to HuffPost) and I hope everyone found their way over here okay? There's a new graphic! Anyway, can we dispense with the introductions now because that’s not why you’re here? Great, moving on…

What an interesting show this was! It certainly wasn’t the best show of the season – though it just might have had the best sketch – but there were a lot of oddities last night. And oddities are a good thing, as opposed to just the parade of current popular culture references that seemed to litter the first half of this season. Louis C.K. returns for his second hosting gig – and C.K. is an interesting host because (A) he’s good and (B) he’s been, let’s say, known to give up on a sketch when he knows it’s not working. (Remember when he sandbagged the “Mountain Pass” sketch?) And last night we finally did learn if Louis C.K. has a Darth Vader action figure up his butt. Anyway, let’s get to the Scorecard…

The first promos for this Saturday's 'SNL' return have arrived, wherein the revered comedian jokes with Kenan Thompson about his 'Louie' "character," and the initials of his last name.

‘SNL’ and Kerry Washington Confront the Show’s Race Controversy Head On

Recently, 'SNL' came under fire for not having any black actresses in the show's line-up, a controversy that was only further flamed when veteran cast member Kenan Thompson said that most black comediennes "weren't ready" for the gig. The show could have just ignored all of this and everything would have just vanished under the carpet, but to the cast and crew's credit, they confronted the issue in the cold open for this week's episode, apologizing while making fun of the entire situation.
