The Best of 'SNL' Season 38

Indeed, many pegged Season 38 as a "transitional year" in the wake of Kristen Wiig and Andy Samberg leaving the show a year ago, [...]

Variety has guest info on SNL guests for next week and the following. November 10th's show will be hosted by Anne Hathaway with music from Battleship star Rihanna.

'SNL' Recap: Anne Hathaway Is a Team Player

It's great when an SNL host has nothing to prove.

Sure, it's fun to play into expectations surrounding a new host, and to wonder how his or her specific skill sets might factor into an episode: Will Bruno Mars do anything other than sing in sketches? Will Louis CK's style work in the SNL format? Meanwhile, with a repeat host, those concerns are lifted. Whether it's a former cast member (Will Ferrell, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler), or a longtime friend of the show (Alec Baldwin, Jon Hamm, and now with three episodes under her belt, Anne Hathaway), a host who is familiar with the process can ease back and have a [...]

Rumored Oscar Hosts: James Franco and Anne Hathaway

Who needs Steve Martin or Billy Crystal when you can have, um, James Franco and Anne Hathaway? That's the idea behind new rumors about who will be hosting the Oscars. Franco and Hathaway can be funny, to be sure, but something about this just bums me out. Also, isn't Franco supposedly a frontrunner for a Best Actor nod? Won't that be awkward?
