Kenan Thompson has been doing an impersonation of Charles Barkley for Weekend Update on “Saturday Night Live” for awhile now, so we’re glad Jay Pharoah is finally joining him as Shaquille “Shaq” O’Neal.
Dennis Rodman has been all over the news lately because of his recent visit to North Korea. Thankfully, he and Kim Jong-un stopped by the Weekend Update desk at “Saturday Night Live” last night to hopefully answer a few questions.
The Los Angeles Lakers are in disarray heading into All Star Weekend. Luckily, Stephen A. Smith stopped by the Saturday Night Live “Weekend Update” desk to diagnose their problems based on his uncomfortably close friendships with each of the team’s star players.
What was the biggest sports story of the past week? Yeah, the Super Bowl, but what specifically? There you go: the blackout at the Super Bowl. Well, an all-new Saturday Night Live was last night, and I’ll give you one guess as to what they spoofed in their cold open.
As the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers prepare to face off next Sunday, all the talk has been about the Harbaugh brothers. Last night, Saturday Night Live reminded us that there’s another interesting character involved as Ray Lewis stopped by Weekend Update.
Manti Te’o has been taking a beating this week, so naturally he had to get the business from Saturday Night Live. And on last night’s SNL, they didn’t waste any time giving it him, going at him during the cold open.
Olympic gold medal winner Usain Bolt made a cameo on Saturday Night Live last night, showing up during the cold open sketch satirizing this week’s Vice Presidential debate between Joe Biden and Paul Ryan.
Jay Pharoah’s Stephen A. Smith impression got a bunch of attention went he debuted it back in May, and this past weekend, he brought it back to the Weekend Update desk. Did you know that Stephen A. Smith is a close personal friend of Rex Ryan’s? Neither did we. Video, after the jump.
Saturday Night Live had a couple issues for its season premiere over the weekend: host Seth MacFarlane had to make Family Guy references since everyone knows him because of that, and an occasional over-reliance on pop culture references. But all wasn’t lost… thanks to Ryan Lochte.
The year: 2007. The location: 30 Rockefeller Center’s Studio 8H. The scene: 22-year-old Cleveland Cavalier LeBron James, fresh off of leading the franchise to their first (and only) NBA Finals appearance, makes his SNL hosting debut alongside musical guest Kanye West. Video (and more on what that night meant) after the jump.
