Will Forte’s Fox sitcom Last Man on Earth should really be called Last Scruffy Man on Earth, but that has all changed. The former-SNLer shaved off a half of that scruff. As in the right side of his hair and beard along with his right eyebrow. Why did he do it? He didn’t say, but you have to wonder if it is for a role? Or maybe that is his way of saying that his show will not be back for a third season, so he is cleansing himself of Phil Miller? But then again his hair grows really fast, so he could be back to his hairy self to film the next episode.
BTW put your hand over half of his face to see how different he looks with hair and without it. Crazy, right?
Many of us dread Thanksgiving dinner because you never know when your family is going to fight. How do you prevent that? You can’t, but Saturday Night Live showed us you can control the situation. Just play Adele’s 25 and everyone will be getting along as long as the music playing. So do everything in your power to make sure it doesn’t stop or the war will restart all over again. And you don’t want that happen because there are some really sharp knives at the table.
As you know by now, Donald Trump’s appearance on Saturday Night Live was a HUGE dud. Unfortunately for the people who sat through that painful 90 minutes, the funniest part came after the show ended. The Republican Presidential Candidate picked up a broom and started to sweep away the confetti that fell at the end of the show. How much sweeping did he do? I am sure he put it down a soon as the photo-op was over. Either that or he put it between his legs and rode it home to Trump Tower. I am leaning to towards the latter.
If you are like me, then when you watched the Democratic Debate you thought that Bernie Sanders looked and sounded like Larry David. Well we weren’t alone because Saturday Night Live thought the same thing. In fact, they believed it so much they asked the Curb Your Enthusiasm star to play the Presidential Candidate. Now I don’t know who is who anymore, do you?
A year and a half after Tracy Morgan’s devastating car accident, the comedian will finally returning to the stage. Morgan is going to guest host Saturday Night Live on October 17th and we will all be welcoming him with open arms. Although, I am sure he would like the women to greet him with open legs, so that he can put a baby in them.
I am so thrilled that he is finally feeling up to do doing what he does best and that is make us laugh. He expressed during his Today interview that he wasn’t sure if he would be able to do that again, but I am glad his confidence and his humor are back. There is only one Tracy Morgan and I am glad he is back!
Taraji P Henson hosted Saturday Night Live yesterday and she brought Cookie with her. She decided it was time to run a different Empire, so she took over Sesame Street. Let’s just say the sun ain’t clearing the clouds away anymore. Especially for Elmo.
So how does the original Cookie Monster feel about the new one? He Tweeted, “Me finally meet da other cookie monster everybody talk about!!! @TherealTaraji not blue and furry like me imagined.” He better watch out, or he will be the one that is covered only in skin and she’s wearing his blue fur as a fur!
Before Billy Eichner was screaming at strangers in Billy on the Street, he needed to scream to get his voice heard over his 74 siblings on Saturday Night Live. How cute was the 13 year old in that 1992 sketch?

Before John Belushi, 24, Chevy Chase, 29, and Christopher Guest, 25, were all on Saturday Night Live, they all did a stage show called Lemmings for National Lampoon. You truly can see how talented all of them were in this 1973 live performance.
Before Gilda Radner, 27, John Belushi, 25, Bill Murray, 23, and Brian Doyle Murray, 28, did Saturday Night Live and Harold Ramis, 29, and Joe Flaherty, 32, did SCTV, they all worked for The National Lampoon Radio Hour. You can see from this rehearsal back in 1974 why they all went on to be part of the two biggest sketch shows to ever air on television.

Saturday Night Live is celebrating its 40th Anniversary tonight at 8p on NBC and the guest list is better than the Emmys, Golden Globes, Grammys and Oscars combined. They are the people who launched the show like Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd, some of its biggest alumni like Eddie Murphy, Billy Crystal and Adam Sandler, and finally today’s cast. Not only will the The Not Ready For Prime-Time Players be there, so will some of the biggest hosts and musicians who ever appeared on the show that has been a mainstay for 4 decades and counting. I don’t know what else to tell you to watch because the guest list speaks for itself.
Well, that and they will be showing some of their most famous sketches throughout the years. I included one from 1977 that was filmed in my hometown. When I took drivers ed, I drove that same road and it was still just as bad if not worse. In fact, I think, it is still just as bad. Never gave a baby a circumcision in a car while I was driving there, but sometimes it felt like I was making one.
