SNL live posts?

The U.S. politics megaposts on the Blue get gummed up with live discussion of "Saturday Night Live" whenever it's new. Should we start treating these as Special Events, pre-posting them and directing traffic over here? [more inside]

Saturday Night Live: Jonah Hill / Future  Season 41, Ep 14

Jason Sudeikis brings the Mormonized fury as Mitt Romney in the cold open, and Jonah Hill serves as the punching bag for virtually every other joke, from a questions-from-the-audience segment in the monologue to two separate skits about him shitting himself. [more inside]

Saturday Night Live: Adam Driver / Chris Stapleton  Season 41, Ep 10

Adam Driver brings the Star Wars nerdery, Fred Armisen returns to pay tribute to David Bowie, and apparently Liev Schriber is a bit of a freak.

Saturday Night Live: Tina Fey & Amy Poehler / Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band  Season 41, Ep 9

Heavyweights return to show the whippersnappers how it's done, as Fey and Poehler hit the high notes (Clinton and Palin; a brief Weekend Update takeover; Maya Rudolph) and Springsteen et al make their third appearance to bust out some songs that are older than most of the current cast and end the show and the year with "Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town" (feat. Sir Paul McCartney).

Saturday Night Live: Chris Hemsworth / Chance the Rapper  Season 41, Ep 8

Saturday Night Live: Donald Trump / Sia  Season 41, Ep 4

Saturday Night Live: Scarlet Johansson / Wiz Khalifa  Season 40, Ep 19

ScarJo hosts for the fourth time (and first in five years) and proves herself as game as usual, even poking fun at her corporate masters about how maybe it's just as well there hasn't been a Black Widow movie, but the show leans a little heavy on Uncomfortable White Men for the humor.

Saturday Night Live: Taraji P. Henson / Mumford & Sons  Season 40, Ep 18

A show that just felt... off, with a cold open that more or less just said "Kate McKinnon's going to be Hillary, so get used to her", a weird QVC sketch that didn't go anywhere, and two wheel-of-impressions sketches. On the plus side, a pretty strong Weekend Update that shows Colin Jost and Michael Che are comfortable with each other and the guest characters (including a lumpy Billy Crystal).

Saturday Night Live: Michael Keaton/Carly Rae Jepsen  Season 40, Ep 17

Michael Keaton hosts for the first time since 1982 (which is before musical guest Carly Rae Jepsen was born). A few good Easter jokes, Weekend Update finally hitting its stride, and a goofy cameo by Norman Reedus. Fewer sketches that went on for longer and the show ran ... short?

Saturday Night Live: Dwayne Johnson / George Ezra  Season 40, Ep 16

Franchise Viagra takes the reins for the fourth time, busting out "The Rock" Obama, paying tribute to his past with a deeply psychological take on wrestling feuds, and generally being charismatic and game for anything.

Saturday Night Live: Chris Hemsworth / Zac Brown Band  Season 40, Ep 15

A lot of discussion of how dreamy Chris Hemsworth is, a couple of rocking performances by Zac Brown Band, a lively if blooperific Weekend Update, and another goddamn Former Porn Stars sketch give us an essentially "filler" episode this week.

Saturday Night Live: J.K. Simmons & D'Angelo  Season 40, Ep 13

J.K. Simmons turns in an able performance (and many, many wigs), and D'Angelo owns the stage in a fair-to-middling midseason episode.

Saturday Night Live: Blake Shelton  Season 40, Ep 12
