Woody Harrelson Hosts SNL Premiere: Watch the Best & Worst Sketches

RELATED STORIES The post-Leslie Jones era of Saturday Night Live kicked off this weekend with four-time host Woody Harrelson and the return of a famous alumna.

Thankfully, the episode found […]

Don Cheadle Hosts SNL: Watch Video of the Best & Worst Sketches

It’s hard to believe that Don Cheadle hadn’t hosted Saturday Night Live before this weekend’s show.

Cheadle was the rare host able to elevate even […]

Steve Carell Hosts SNL: Watch Video of the Best & Worst Sketches

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 10 years since Steve Carell last hosted Saturday Night Live. That makes it all the more disappointing that his third hosting stint was something of a let down.
