Remaining Season 42 Musical Guest Predictions
JM5000

I decided to go ahead and make the remaining musical guest predictions now... Once again, these will be listed from most to least likely: Arcade Fire: These guys have a new album that's said to be released sometime within the next few months. But regardless of how much longer it takes, they have all of the songs recorded a...

Does anyone remember this awkward elevator sketch from the early 90s?
Been trying to locate evidence of this SNL sketch everywhere but I've turned up nothing:

It was a sketch from the early 90s (maybe late 80s?), where a man is standing in an empty elevator, and as people start coming on, they stand DIRECTLY next to the original man - uncomfortably close. Everyone who walks on stands extra close to this guy, and he simply can't figure out why it's going on. I feel like Kevin Nealon and/or Dana Carvey was in this one, but I might be remembering wrong.

Anyone have any idea when this sketch aired, and where I can see it? Thanks!

Donald Trump has been a gift from the gods for SNL's writers...Every day brings a new controversy from his administration, and all SNL really needs to do is write a joke or premise based on said controversy, and chances are, it will be well-received by fans and critics alike...Well, except for the president and his supporters, but that's a whole 'nother can of worms...

As a humble fan of the show who has taken on the responsibility of posting the main review articles for this website after the shutting down of the forums, I will admit that I had no idea what I was getting myself into...You see, just last season, SNL was much less concerned with politics...Sure, they still had plenty of sketches regarding current events, specifically in Washington D.C., but they still balanced it out with plenty more self-contained, ableit incredibly ...Read more

April 2017 Predictions

First of all, I estimate that the next episode after this weekend will fall directly on April Fool's Day (either that, or they will have to take three weeks off, which is DEFINITELY too long to leave Trump unattended). I'm thinking the host could be someone reflective of the zaniness of the holiday...While I have considered a few names with nothing to promote but the event itself, I will only name the more likely, and much more safe and predictable, candidates.

The first of the two choices is Melissa McCarthy, who honestly could end up hosting any of the last six shows of the season what with her appearances as Sean Spicer...Of course, since she's arguably SNL's favorite host of this current era, and her next hosting appearance will make her a Five-Timer, I think her hosting anything other than an event episode (E ...

3/4/2017: Octavia Spencer/Father John Misty

Apparently this show can't even take two weeks off anymore...

I really wish they DIDN'T have to churn out Trump joke after Trump joke, but as they say, Trump is the gift that keeps on giving...

Of course, a gift can also be a curse...People are starting to demand that the show take less breaks just so they could do more Trump jokes...Look, I enjoy a good Trump joke as much as the next guy, and I encourage SNL to keep doing what it's doing so long as Trump continues to provide such material...But at the end of the day, while each controversy is different, it all leads to the same punchline, which can get old after a while...I don't blame SNL for any of this...They just have very little choice in the matter because the president just won't shut ...

2/11/2017: Alec Baldwin/Ed Sheeran

Anyone else getting sick of politics?

Well, unfortunately, on a show that tackles major political stories all the time, under a president who constantly makes bad decisions and likes to complain about the jokes they make at his expense based on said decisions, the topics concerning him are just unavoidable...

For months now I've been hoping for things to quiet down so that we could all move on to other topics, but Donald Trump just insists on being the center of attention...You know the old saying about bad publicity...By now, it's pretty easy to consider Trump as just another Hollywood headline news distraction from more serious issues...He is the Britney Spears of our time!

So it's time to bring in the big guns and hit that son-of-a-gun where it hurts! The man primarily responsible for his multiple therapy bills over the last half of ...

March 2017 Predictions

My host predictions are pretty much the same as they were for this month...The only extra thing to consider is that we still haven't gotten our obligatory double-duty musician host yet (Mars and Gaga were good enough hosts the first time around to warrant another go, but I guess SNL had other plans), or our obligatory first time former cast-member host...Just thought I'd point that out...

Otherwise, the three most hyped movies of March are still "Logan", "Kong: Skull Island" and "Beauty and the Beast". My most educated guess is that either Hugh Jackman or Tom Hiddleston will host on the 4th, and then Emma Watson (who is also starring in the upcoming movie "The Circle" with Tom Hanks) will host on the 11th...I mean, Kristen Stewart was given a chance for no real reason other than some independent films, I don't see why ...

2/4/2017: Kristen Stewart/Alessia Cara

Kristen Stewart was always quite notorious as that emotionless block of wood from the "Twilight" movies and various others, but she has made a better name for herself in recent years with her roles in independent films...Unfortunately, her Bella Swan persona was what triumphed throughout last night's show, leading to all sorts of awkward deliveries, botched lines and an F-bomb...I think her chances of ever returning to host a second time are now toast...

So how was the show itself...? Pretty good...Though it might have been better if the host didn't bring down the sketches with said awkward deliveries...(In fact, she wasn't the only one who flubbed some lines, which I'll get to...)

The cold opening was pretty standard Trump-bashing, complete with Reaper Bannon returning, though it did have some nice gags with the phone-calls...And a special shout-out to Alex Moffat ...

1/21/2017: Aziz Ansari/Big Sean
Well, the Trumpster is in the White House! Nobody truly knows what to expect over these next four years...Not even whether or not our new president will remain in office by the next election...

So with all that said, it's interesting (and perhaps intentional?) that SNL has followed both tension-filled political events with a stand-up comedian who has nothing to immediately promote (though this one is coming fairly fresh off of the success of "Master of None", which is still awaiting its second season) hosting the show...And like the other post-political-event episode hosted by a stand-up comedian, it gave us exactly what we needed with one of the best episodes of the season!

Let's get the political stuff out of the way first, because the sooner we can move on to new topics, the better...Despite promising that Baldwin's Trump would show up for the ...Read more

February 2017 Predictions

Hosts:

Anyone who's nominated for an Oscar: Kinda depends on who's nominated really.
Emma Watson ("Beauty and the Beast"): Would fit very well for the Valentine's Day episode.
Hailee Steinfeld ("Edge of Seventeen"): Could also work for Valentine's Day, though her time may have passed now.
Hugh Jackman ("Logan"): If there's a time to bring him back, this may be it...
Ryan Reynolds ("Life"): Mostly for the "Deadpool" hype...
Tom Hiddleston ("Kong: Skull Island"): Loki must be feeling pretty jealous that Thor hosted twice now (and didn't really earn that second appearance...)
Will Forte ("Last Man On Earth"): I'd love to see him host, though I'm not sure when will be the ideal time...

Musical Guests:

An indie band that I'm not entirely familiar with: Never count these possibilities out...
Beck: Still waiting for the announcement of his new album...
Ed ...
