SNL is still unique amongst other sketch shows because of the fact that it has always been live. Also known as: "NBC's Saturday Night" from October 11, 1975 to July 31, 1976. "Saturday Night" from September 18, 1976 to March 19, 1977. "Saturday Night Live" since March 26, 1977. "Good night and have a pleasant tommorow!"
Saturday Night Live closes out December with three back-to-back shows starting Dec. 5 with Ryan Gosling and musical guest Leon Bridges. Gosling will make his SNL debut and can next be seen in the feature film The Big Short, due December 23. R&B artist and singer/songwriter Leon Bridges will also make his SNL first musical guest appearance. His critically acclaimed debut album, "Coming Home," reached the top 10 in the U.S., U.K. and Australia.
Ryan Gosling made his directorial debut earlier this year with Lost River, which starred Christina Hendricks, Saoirse Ronan and Eva Mendes. Next year, the actor will star in The Nice Guys, alongside Russell Crowe, which hits theaters May 20, and La La Land, with Emma Stone, in theaters July 15. The actor also entered talks earlier this year to star in Ridley Scott's Untitled Blade Runner Project with Harrison Ford.Read More
The news may come as a surprise, since NBC famously "fired" Donald Trump earlier this year, after the Republican Presidential candidate made derogatory remarks about immigrants. The network ended their business relationship, pulling the plug on Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants that were part of a joint venture between the network and Trump. The Miss USA pageant aired on the independent REELZ Channel back in July.
Donald Trump also let NBC know that he would not be back to host Celebrity Apprentice, so he could focus on his Presidential campaign. The network announced last month that Arnold Schwarzenegger will step in to replace Trump. It remains to be seen whether or not Arnold Schwarzenegger will use Donald Trump's iconic catch phrase "You're Fired," or if he will come up with his own unique saying. During Donald Trump's stint on Celebrity Apprentice, he was successful in raising $15 million for charity.Read More

Before Norman Reedus made his appearance, Pete Davidson revealed that he believes the zombie apocalypse is really coming, and that he fears for his life because he may be confused for a zombie, since he smokes too much weed. He goes on to describe that, when he's stoned, he demonstrates all of the typical signs of zombie behavior. Of course, his point is "proven" when an arrow is shot into his chest, before Norman Reedus appears on stage.
This was Norman Reedus' first appearance on Saturday Night Live, and given how immensely popular The Walking Dead has become, perhaps this may lead the way to the actor actually hosting the show himself. Do you think Norman Reedus would be a great Saturday Night Live host? Let us know what you think after watching the video below.Read More
Coming off his success in the hit Birdman, Michael Keaton hosted NBC's Saturday Night Live over the weekend. His monologue was memorably interrupted by cast members Taran Killam and Bobby Moynihan, who asked the legendary actor to reprise his roles as Batman and Beetlejuice. Unfortunately for them, their song-and-dance didn't go quite as planned, when Jay Pharoah interrupts dressed as characters from both of those hit movies.
While Michael Keaton ultimately declines to play both Batman and Beetlejuice, Taran Killam and Bobby Moynihan took the liberty of shooting their own Batman and Beetlejuice parodies, using backstage footage of Michael Keaton and crude special effects. When the entire cast comes on stage, dressed in either Batman or Beetlejuice t-shirts, Michael Keaton finally gives the fans what they want.Read More
