Best 'Saturday Night Live' Cast Members Of Season 39

September 20th, 2014 11:00am EDT
Saturday Night Live
With “Saturday Night Live” on the cusp of beginning its latest season, I am spending the next several days looking back at the best of last season.

I was always skeptical when “Saturday Night Live” Season 39 was referred to as a “rebuilding year.” Even though most of the show’s biggest stars (Bill Hader, Fred Armisen, Kristen Wiig, Andy Samberg, and Jason Sudeikis) had left in the past couple of years, the cast was hardly decimated. Bobby Moynihan and Taran Killam had already reached reliable veteran status, while Cecily Strong and Kate McKinnon were quickly on the rise. So adding six n...

Magic Rules The Finale Of 'America's Got Talent' As Mat Franco I
Last night, for the first time in eight seasons of the hit talent series, "America's Got Talent," a magician won the coveted million dollar prize!

Illusionist Mat Franco nabbed the top spot through his interactive magic presentations, often involving judges Mel B, Heidi Klum, Howard Stern and Howie Mandel. Franco finished just ahead of popular singer Emily West.

Franco is a self-taught magician and toured college campuses to make extra money. On the finale, he performed a card trick involving Stern and guest Rosie O'Donnell, giving both of them 10 cards, which they hid in their clothing. ...

SNL Names Michael Che First African-American 'Weekend Update' An
In yet another groundbreaking move for the struggling Saturday night mainstay, "SNL" has named it's first African-American Weekend Update Anchor, comedian Michael Che. Che will replace Cecily Strong, who will continue to remain on the sketch comedy series.

Che is the third person to helm the anchor desk since the departure of Seth Meyers earlier this year. Meyers went on to host "The Late Show with Seth Meyers." Meyers introduced Strong to much fanfare at the beginning of season 39, in the hopes of making the transition easier for viewers. Strong never caught on as "WU" anchor. She was lat...

Prediction: Law & Order: SVU’s Olivia Benson Will Be One Badass TV Mom This Season

September 7th, 2014 3:00pm EDT
Prediction: Law & Order: SVU’s Olivia Benson Will Be One Badass
A baby can change your life – or in the case of ‘Law & Order: SVU,’ it can breath new life into a series that is entering its sixteenth season.

Used to be, the show’s biggest difference from year to year was the hair color and cut of “Olivia Benson” (Mariska Hargitay). But on September 24th, the new acting commander will be pulling double duty as the court-appointed custodial guardian of “Noah Porter,” the baby who was orphaned at the end of last season.

For the trial period of one year, she will join the ranks of New York City mothers; and although we’re a tough bunch (I’ve been one for ...

'Saturday Night Live' Season 40 Musical Guest Predictions

September 6th, 2014 7:00pm EDT
'Saturday Night Live' Season 40 Musical Guest Predictions
The season 40 premiere of “Saturday Night Live” is a little less than a month from now (September 27), which means it is time to start speculating how this year of the sketch comedy institution will shake down. To get that going, I am predicting Season 40’s hosts and musical guests. I already posted my host guesses, so now it's time for my MG picks.

Musical guests are notoriously tougher to predict than hosts, as album releases generally are not scheduled as far in advance as movies and TV shows. So I will consider it a great success if my picks are even half right, especially consideri...
