TV Review: SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE – Season 38 – Host Martin Short

After a very rough patch of episodes, SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE pulled out all the stops for its Christmas episode hosted by Martin Short with musical guest Paul McCartney. Following on the heels of the tragedy in the Sandy Hook elementary shooting, SNL made the cold opening a very classy and understated moment – they had the New York Children’s Choir sing “Silent Night”. No mention was made of the tragedy, but it was clear what this moment stood for. Very memorable. The rest of the episode was filled with an endless parade of big name cameos (Samuel L. Jackson, Alec […]Read On »

Stars: Fred Armisen, Vanessa Bayer, Bill Hader, Taran Killam, Seth Meyers, Bobby Moynihan, Nasim Pedrad, Jay Pharoah, Jason Sudeikis, Kenan Thompson, Aidy Bryant, Kate McKinnon, Tim Robinson, Cecily Strong Network: NBC, airs Saturday nights Original Telecast: December 8, 2012 SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE returns after a three-week hiatus, and the time away still hasn’t made the show any sharper or any funnier. Season 38 has turned into one of the worst seasons in some time and I still haven’t figured out why. Kristen Wiig and Andy Samburg leaving should not have killed the show’s momentum. They were good, but they weren’t […]Read On »

While Renner is an amazing dramatic actor, doing live TV is not necessarily his strong suit, although when his piano failed to play during his monologue, he handled himself quite well until the problem was fixed. That said, most of the sketches were terrible this […]Read On »

Like her previous two stints, Hathaway is fantastic and very funny. In many ways she’s a stronger performer than the material she’s given and her ability to put herself out there and look ridiculous is part […]Read On »

Here is a comedian who has forged a unique identity, has a very funny comedic voice an has standards so high that he writes, produces, directs and sometimes edits his successful FX TV series. Well, it didn’t take long to […]Read On »

Again, the writing is a bit on the weak side, but when you have someone who is game and as talented as Bruno, even lackluster material suddenly comes […]Read On »

Once again Kate McKinnon rises to the top as one of the most promising new performers as the series relies heavily on Bill Hader and Jason Sudeikis to wring laughs out […]Read On »

With Joseph Gordon-Levitt hosting (he did a fabulous job the last time he appeared on SNL), delivering something funny should not have been a problem. Yet, with all the good […]Read On »

This is even scarier as Jason Sudeikis may be leaving […]Read On »
