Alec Baldwin ‘can’t imagine’ coming back to ‘Saturday Night Live’ next season

TwitterFacebook

Alec Baldwin would like to move on from playing Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live, the actor said in an interview with USA Today Thursday.

Baldwin, who has returned to SNL on a recurring basis to impersonate Trump, sounds like he’s tired of playing the president and receiving constant criticism of his portrayal.

“I mean, I had a lot of fun with (the cast), and when Chris Kelly and Sarah Schneider wrote (Trump sketches in 2016 and 2017), that was new, it was fresh and the ratings were…

Instagram lets you see what it thinks you like, and the results are bizarre

TwitterFacebook

Most of my Instagram ads make sense, even if it’s a depressing kind of sense. (I am served a lot of ads for Tums.) But there are a few that, for the life of me, I cannot figure out. Why is Instagram so invested in me purchasing fishing lures? I have not been fishing in many years.

Turns out, Instagram assembles a list of all the things that it thinks you like — based on the data it’s pulled from you, of course. It’s nothing new, but it is enjoying a brief moment in the spotlight after…

Watch this over-the-top dog become a tourist attraction

TwitterFacebook

Some dogs really know how to draw a crowd.

In the Abkhazia territory in the country of Georgia on Saturday, a group of tourists stopped to take photos of a particularly performative dog that had rolled onto its back. Forget the sights, this dog is the tourist attraction.   

Mind you, nobody actually pets the dog. They’re just here to stan.  Read more…

Donald Trump’s rocking Queen cover on ‘SNL’ almost makes you forget all the crimes

TwitterFacebook

Queen’s “Don’t Stop Me Now” is a fun song. Even when the lyrics are re-worked to celebrate the many transgressions and seemingly provable outright crimes of the Donald Trump administration.

Alec Baldwin brought his Trump schtick back to Saturday Night Live‘s cold open on May 18, the show’s Season 44 finale. The rousing Oval Office jam session featured all the familiar faces you’ve come to expect from SNL‘s many journeys into Trumpworld, including a special guest appearance from Robert De…

Pete Davidson’s ‘Game of Thrones’ rap on ‘SNL’ falls apart in the best way

TwitterFacebook

Pete Davidson has carved out a comfortable niche on Saturday Night Live as a rap star with a love for weird tangents. Sketches from recent years really don’t get much better than Tucci Gang. Until now?

Davidson’s new one starts off in a familiar enough place: Game of Thrones, his “favoritest show ever.” But it’s really not. What Davidson’s heart of hearts really beats for is the odd couple Netflix series Grace and Frankie, starring Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda.

That’s it. That’s the joke….

Paul Rudd and Beck Bennett make everyone break with their weird IT song

TwitterFacebook

People who work in IT are a popular target when it comes to making fun of people in the workplace, but Paul Rudd and Beck Bennett’s IT characters on this cut Saturday Night Live sketch take it to a whole different level.

During the office’s retirement party for their boss David, the guys in IT put together a little something special. What everyone thought would be a nice slideshow turned out to be a new wave performance about their love of computers. With their silver suits, slicked…

Jeanine Pirro soaks ‘SNL’ Weekend Update host Colin Jost over Trump comments

TwitterFacebook

Cecily Strong channeled Fox News personality Jeanine Pirro on Saturday Night Live‘s Weekend Update and soaked Colin Jost in the process.

Strong had a hilarious, on-the-nose performance as Pirro making racist comments, raging about the “loony left,” defending Donald Trump from all sides, and referring to Michael Che as “Kenan.” One of the most fun bits is her insistence on spitting and throwing martinis in Jost’s face any time he brought up some negative development about Trump.
