Who Scored Big in Week 7 of SNL's Relevancy Poll?

by Mike Ryan, posted Nov 21st 2011 1:45PM
It was a very crowded week for our favorite 'SNL' players. Not only did they have to share the spotlight with Jason Segel --who appeared to be glowing from having so much fun – but they also had to share the spotlight with the Muppets. Also, a key element of success on the Relevancy Poll was missing this week: The "Weekend Update" segments. I mean, yes, there were two segments, but they were monopolized by the real John Huntsman and then, later, by Kermit the Frog. Who's number one? Let's find out!

Who Scored Big in Week 6 of SNL's Relevancy Poll?

by Mike Ryan, posted Nov 14th 2011 1:15PM
The reason that Emma Stone is such a good host is that she could easily be a cast member. The sketches don't have to feature her; she can just blend in and play a supporting character. In other words: she doesn't have to be the center of attention. Because of this, it leads to a show in which the cast can really shine. And, collectively, they did! But there were a few that had really standout weeks, including our surprise winner...

'SNL' Scorecard: Did Spider-Man Rescue Emma Stone's Show?

by Mike Ryan, posted Nov 13th 2011 12:40PM


Last season, Emma Stone hosted 'SNL' for the first time, a show that would introduce us to "Sex" Ed Vincent and "Les Jeunes de Paris." For Stone's return visit, "Les Jeunes de Paris" was back for a third time (sadly, "Sex" Ed still isn't back) – in fact, for whatever reason, of the first eight sketches of the night (including the two Update segments), only the Digital Short wasn't a recurring sketch. Even the Spider-Man monologue was a recurring sketch! Regardless, it doesn't matter -- Stone has now proven twice that she's a terrific host. But, after four subpar shows in a row to start the season, could Stone keep the momentum going that started with Charlie Day's show last week? On to the Scorecard!

Who Scored Big in Week 5 of SNL's Relevancy Poll?

For whatever reason, I had a feeling that Saturday night's show was going to be one of the better efforts of the season. Maybe I'm psychic! (Unfortunately, I'm not psychic.) Too often, when making 'SNL' predictions, the discussions break down into either, "Well, he's funny," or, "She was great in this movie, ergo, she will be a terrific 'SNL' host." (For the record, I may be the only person alive who instigates these type of discussions.) Here's really the most important intangible of being a great 'SNL' host: playing well with others. Charlie Day played well with others. So much so that everyone got themselves into the act this week, which, with a cast this big, is rare. But that's what made it good! So, with that, on to this week's slightly crowded Relevancy Poll...

Jason Sudeikis Loves Seeing Famous Musicians Roll Through 'SNL' (VIDEO)

Jason Sudeikis, 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'Jason Sudeikis came on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central) to talk about the new season of 'Saturday Night Live.' He promises that this week's show is great right now, though he figures they'll screw it up pretty good by Saturday night.

He got to talking about how exciting it is to see some of the musical acts come through, and how the cast often sits on on their rehearsals. He has particularly fond, and funny, memories of watching Paul McCartney rehearse one of his favorite songs.

"You forget that it's Paul McCartney until you try to take a picture of him and a big black guy slaps your hand," Sudeikis said of how mesmerized he was watching McCartney perform.

Who Scored Big in Week 2 of SNL's Relevancy Poll?

Even though the results were disappointing, this week's 'SNL' was, again, very host-centric – meaning there wasn't a ton of lead-role airtime to go around for cast members. Though, Jay Pharoah managed to get his first sketch of the season on the air, while poor Paul Brittain was nearly shut out. But who leads the poll after the second week of the season? A show hosted by 'Bridesmaids' star Melissa McCarthy? It should be no surprise that the top spot goes to...

'SNL' Scorecard: Was Melissa McCarthy Even Given a Chance?

by Mike Ryan, posted Oct 2nd 2011 1:55PM


Someday Melissa McCarthy will be a good 'SNL' host. Her name will be mentioned alongside recent 'SNL' hosting phenoms like Jon Hamm and Justin Timberlake. Hell, if given some better than average material last night to back up her deliveries, we may already be mentioning her name as part of this class. Unfortunately, McCarthy did what she could with a writing staff that seemed to take the week off from writing anything interesting and, instead, just gave her a few sketches that resembled poor man's clones of 'Bridesmaids.' To be fair, this was probably to be expected with her first outing immediately following her breakthrough comedy role. But, now that this is out of the way, hopefully, next time, the writing staff will giver her more things to do than pour food on her head and have her fall down a flight of stairs. Alas, on to the scorecard...

Who Scored Big in Week 1 of SNL's Relevancy Poll?

Kristen WiigThe first week of 'Saturday Night Live' is in the books, which means it's once again time to go to the Relevancy Poll to see who's getting the most out of their airtime. (The final results of last year's poll are over here.) Host Alec Baldwin dominated the smaller sketches, and with a plethora of ensemble sketches (three in all), at least so far, it's hard to get a true gage on how things will play out in the cast. Though we did get a sense that Kristen Wiig seems to be back in full force -- after what could be considered a year off to finish and promote 'Bridesmaids'-- and that Jay Pharoah is still in the doghouse. Off to the poll:

'SNL' Scorecard: Did Steve Martin Succeed in Sabotaging Alec Baldwin's Show?

by Mike Ryan, posted Sep 25th 2011 12:30PM


Watching Alec Baldwin host 'SNL' – which he has now done a record 16 times -- has become a little like purchasing a recent album from the now disbanded R.E.M.: We know that we're going to get a solid effort – even great, at times -- but the truly memorable moments are from the first decade of work. A point Baldwin even kind of alludes to in last night's monologue. The first show of the season is usually a mixed bag at best (with last year's excellent Amy Poehler hosted effort a huge exception). "But they've had all summer to think of new ideas," is often a criticism levied at the first show of a season, but that's not really the way it works. With Baldwin as host and with the exact same cast as last year (with the only change being Nasim Pedrad promoted from featured player to cast member) there was hope that SNL's 37th season could come out firing on all cylinders. Nope. So, with that, welcome to another season of 'Saturday Night Live' and, yes, another season of SNL Scorecard!

Jason Sudeikis Talks His Hurricane Preparedness on 'Late Show' (VIDEO)

Jason Sudeikis, 'Late Show with David Letterman'Jason Sudeikis was one of those people who was fully prepared for Hurricane Irene in anticipation of the storm's arrival in New York this past weekend. He boasted to David Letterman on 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS) about the supplies he'd acquired.

"I got two bottles of water, but like the big ones, with the squirt top," he said. "And then some chips and salsa." Sounds like he was ready for anything!

Luckily, New York City was spared the brunt of the storm's assault, though the pair couldn't figure out how upstate New York appeared to have gotten hit worse than the south. Well, Sudeikis had a theory.

Jason Sudeikis Can't Smell Farts, But He Can Taste Them (VIDEO)

Jason Sudeikis on 'Chelsea Lately'Jason Sudeikis stopped by 'Chelsea Lately' (Weeknights, 11PM on E!) to promote his new movie, 'Horrible Bosses,' and the conversation turned to what happens when you get a bunch of men spending a lot of time together in a car.

Gas. Not the petroleum type, but the farting type. Having told Chelsea Handler he farts probably as much as the next guy (mostly in the mornings you'll be glad to know), Sudeikis went on to admit that, because he has no sense of smell, he doesn't have a problem with other people farting in his presence.

"So all I get is the fun part." But, thinking about it, there is a downside: "I can taste them," grimaced Sudeikis, "Oh boy, I can taste them."

'MTV Movie Awards': Jason Sudeikis Slams Schwarzenegger, List of Winners (VIDEO)

Jason Sudeikis, '2011 MTV Movie Awards'When Jason Sudeikis hit the west coast to host the '2011 MTV Movie Awards' (Sun., 9PM ET on MTV), he was clearly inspired by the former Governor of California. His opening monologue was chock-full of jokes about Arnold Schwarzenegger, though not all of them were home runs with the Hollywood crowd.

"For the first time in the history of the MTV Movie Awards, the entire balcony has been fathered by Arnold Schwarzenegger," he told the crowd to a middling response. Are they defensive of their former governor?

Sudeikis took a page from the Ricky Gervais hosting playbook, with digs across the Hollywood spectrum and, like Gervais, not all of them were particularly well-received. Luckily for Sudeikis, most of his targets weren't in the audience.

Jason Sudeikis Wouldn't Stop Getting Michael Jordan's Autograph (VIDEO)

Jason Sudeikis, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'What would you do if you got a chance to see one of your idols? As detailed on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC). Jason Sudeikis got that opportunity with a superstar when he was young, and he did a very savvy thing.

His mother was able to get him into a celebrity golf event that Michael Jordan was participating in. According to Sudeikis this was before Jordan won any championships, and so he was far more accessible to the general public.

The shrewd thing was how he got Jordan's autograph on "whatever piece of loose leaf paper I had in my backpack."

Jason Sudeikis to Host MTV Movie Awards

Jason SudeikisJason Sudeikis' next hosting gig is a little bigger than the '80s sportscaster he plays on 'Saturday Night Live.'

The 'SNL'-er has been tapped to host the MTV Movie Awards from Los Angeles on June 5.

"I'm sincerely flattered that the folks from the Mostly Teenage Viewers network have invited me to host this year, and I look forward to keeping the streak of flawless and critically lauded movie awards show hosting in 2011 alive," Sudeikis told MTV News of his new gig.

The six-year 'SNL' vet will appear in the film 'Horrible Bosses' this summer with Jason Bateman and Charlie Day. First, though, he'll finish out the sketch show's 36th season with hosts Tina Fey, Ed Helms and Justin Timberlake.
