    Elon Musk took the Studio 8H stage over the weekend for his Saturday Night Live hosting debut and, as many expected, there was a lot of cryptocurrency talk. The controversial tech mogul had fans and critics debating the choice to tap him as a host in the lead-up to Saturday’s episode. However, one of the biggest questions was whether or not he’d mention Dogecoin, the satirical cryptocurrency that has skyrocketed in the wake of his repeated online endorsements. As it turns out, Dogecoin — and cryptocurrency in general — actually played a prominent role in the episode. Apart from a...

    The announcement that SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk will be hosting “Saturday Night Live” did not sit well with some cast members. It was so upsetting that SNL is reportedly offering a safe space to those who are triggered by the popular CEO. The “Tesla” CEO will be on SNL on May 8th with musical guest Miley Cyrus.

    “Saturday Night Live” cast members won’t be forced to appear alongside controversial billionaire Elon Musk when he hosts the show, Page Six is told. “Speaking historically, if a cast member has been that unhappy, they don’t have to do it,” a source told us. “[‘SNL’ boss Lorne Michaels] won’t ever make them do anything they don’t want to do.” The Tesla founder, 49, is set to helm the NBC institution on May 8 — but some cast members have made it clear that they’re less than enthused by the prospect of having him on stage at Studio 8H. After Musk...

    Three Democratic U.S. senators on Monday said they are introducing legislation that would require U.S. regulators to mandate installation of driver-monitoring systems to ensure motorists pay attention while using systems like Tesla's Autopilot.Senators Ed Markey, Richard Blumenthal and Amy Klobuchar introduced the measure on Monday, saying they hope to get it included as part of infrastructure reform legislation. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has opened 28 probes into Tesla crashes to date, with 24 pending, where Autopilot was suspected of being in use.The measure also requires the agency "to study how driver-monitoring systems can prevent driver distraction, driver disengagement,...

    During this episode, the cast spoofed a Minneapolis morning news show to discuss the trial over George Floyd’s death in custody. “Sounds like we all agree there’s no way Derek Chauvin walks away from this,” Kate McKinnon said. Two black cast members, Keenan Thompson and Ego Nwodim, immediately began to express doubt. McKinnon goes on to discuss how the defense has been arguing that Floyd’s cause of death was actually the fatal amount of drugs in his system. “And there’s no way the jury is gonna fall for that,” McKinnon says. The black actors continue to express doubt that a...

    Anne Beatts, a pioneering comedy writer who helped launch “Saturday Night Live” and created the 1980s cult-favorite sitcom “Square Pegs,” died Wednesday at her home in West Hollywood. She was 74. Beatts’ death was confirmed by her longtime friend Rona Edwards. Beatts was a revered figure in comedy circles given her long resume. She and then-writing partner Rosie Shuster were among the very few women to work on “SNL” at the time of its debut in 1975 on NBC. Beatts was also the first female contributing editor to National Lampoon. In the early 1980s, Beatts created the CBS comedy “Square...

    Plato treated laughter as something to be avoided at all costs; he considered it to be an emotion capable of nullifying one’s self-control.The philosopher, one assumes, would very much approve of SNL, especially the latest episode, where a particularly unfunny segment stood out. It involved Bowen Yang, an Asian American comedian, and Colin Jost, a regular on the show since 2005. Yang was there to discuss the recent wave of anti-Asian hate crimes across the nation. He begins by saying the following: “things for Asian in this country have been bleak for the last two weeks…..and before that, forever.” This...

    Eddie Murphy's early years on the set of Saturday Night Live laid the foundation for the rest of his career, but they almost didn't happen at all. Sometime during the Jan. 10, 1981, show, it became apparent the program was running five minutes short. With only 15 minutes left till the end of the show and nothing on hand to fill in the missing time, producer Jean Doumanian scrambled to find a solution. Murphy, who was just a recently hired featured player and not an official member of the cast, sprung to writer Neil Levy's mind. "I remembered Eddie's from...

    Amid a burgeoning recall effort and ugly poll numbers, California Gov. Gavin Newsom has now become the butt of jokes on NBC's "Saturday Night Live." Newsom is the first judge introduced and is welcomed with the brutal line, "He's hated by every single person in California except those 10 people he had dinner with in Napa that one time." When asked how how things are going in California, Newsom (played by Alex Moffat) replies, "Teeth: white, bodies: tight, COVID: pretty bad."

    Comedian Dave Chappelle delivered a politically charge opening monologue on Saturday Night Live, calling President Donald Trump a “racist hilarious son of a bitch,” touching on the coronavirus, the presidential election, and race in America. “I know a lot of people don’t like him, but I thought the guy was at least an optimist. I am not as optimistic as he was. I look at it like, ‘there’s bad people on both sides,'” said Chappelle on SNL. “Called the coronavirus the kung flu. I said, you racist, hilarious son of a bitch. I’m supposed to say that, not you. It’s...

    When the definitive history of Donald Trump’s presidency is written, it’ll likely begin on April 30, 2011, long before he was actually elected. That’s when Seth Meyers, then the anchor of “Weekend Update” on “Saturday Night Live,” told a joke that, some believe, so infuriated Trump he resolved to run for president. Speaking at the White House Correspondents' Dinner that night, Meyers acknowledged Trump in the audience, and then said: “Donald Trump has been saying he will run for president as a Republican, which is surprising, since I just assumed he was running as a joke.” It got a big...

    A slogan dismissing the devastation of 9/11 in order to promote the Black Lives Matter movement went viral on the 19th anniversary of the terror attacks Friday — with #AllBuildingsMatter trending in Twitter. The phrase was first picked up after Saturday Night Live cast member Michael Che used it in a 2016 Netflix comedy special to highlight anger at people saying “all lives matter” in response to the BLM movement. Che — whose brother is an NYPD cop — questioned why black people have to get over slavery, segregation and police shootings while everyone is told to “never forget” the...
