SNL has plenty in its recent history it’d rather forget, but very rarely does the series scrub one of its own sketches from existence. Such is apparently the case with a recent Safelite commercial parody, as SNL has been quietly deleting all record from the internet.
The year’s final SNL host Casey Affleck poked fun at the seeming oddity of his own presence as the final guest of 2016, but if anyone seemed more appropriate, it’d be Rogue One star Felicity Jones. Thankfully, the erstwhile Jyn Erso will get her chance as the first host of 2017.
Trump cabinet picks have been bad, but not Breaking Bad, at least until now. The SNL cold open for John Cena’s debut hour got Bryan Cranston reprising his iconic role as Walter White, tapped to head the DEA (what else) in the new administration.
Emma Stone’s SNL return may not go down among the 2016 highlights, but fans and wrestling viewers alike are more than excited to see John Cena take the stage this weekend as the year’s penultimate host. See for yourself, as Cena gets the requisite wrestling entrance in his first promos.
We’ve already got on our dancing shoes for La La Land star Emma Stone to make her SNL return this weekend with musical guest Shawn Mendes, but what of the other December slots? Studio 8H may need to widen its doorways, as John Cena has now booked his SNL debut, with Manchester By the Sea star Casey Affleck closing out 2016.
SNL has been through enough big moments in recent weeks to overshadow our Halloween obsession with David S. Pumpkins, but as the sketch itself insisted, several questions remain. Where did the “S” initial suddenly come from, and how did such a memorably ridiculous idea come to pass? Allow Bobby Moynihan to explain.
Dave Chappelle practically quit show-business over the endless association with his viral Chappelle’s Show characters, to the point few presumed we’d ever see them again. Well, it seems we owe The Walking Dead’s frustrating cliffhanger a debt of gratitude, as Chappelle took his SNL hosting as a chance to revive a number of Chappelle’s Show favorites … at least to kill one off.
Benedict Cumberbatch may make for a Strange SNL host this weekend, but as everyone knows, next week might be the most in need of some levity. Thankfully, Dave Chappelle will answer that call in a rare TV appearance, hosting the followup outing with an equally exciting musical guest.
