This weekend’s episode of SNL was perhaps the best of all season, with a lineup that seemed ripped from the pages of BUST (plus plenty of killer cameos…and one by Bill O'Reilly?) and a distinctly female energy (no doubt stemming from host Maya Rudolph’s presence) that felt like a breath of fresh air—or a gasp for fresh air after laughing so hard at Rudolph and Kristen Wiig’s frozen-chicken-fondling, golf-cart-driving, ...

The folks over at Saturday Night Live must really love BUST Magazine! The host of this weekend's comedy sketch show is none other than yours truly. Sort of. Although the hilarious staff here is not actually hosting SNL, our current cover lady Maya Rudolph is, and the musical guest is (drum roll please) Sleigh Bells! Not only did Sleigh Bells land a spot as our featured review in the Feb/March issue, we've got a brand-spankin' new interview with ... Read More

So maybe we did just post about Quirkyalone Day, but, much like Zooey D. (I didn’t used to think she possessed a funny bone in her body, but now I take it back), we BUST girls are capable of not taking ourselves too seriously. Which is why I present you with an SNL clip from this past Saturday, one which highlights some of the essential tenets of quirkiness. Abby Elliott plays Zooey Deschanel, the real Zooey portrays an electric-blanket wearing, ... Read More

If you're old enough to remember the SNL skit "Delicious Dish," I've got some exciting news for you: Ben & Jerry's is releasing a new flavor, called "Shweddy Balls", based on the sketch with Alec Baldwin.What's the ice cream made of? In this imagining of the taste of Alec Baldwin's Shweddy Balls, it features Fair Trade vanilla ice cream with fudge-covered rum and milk chocoloate malt balls. I can't wait to get my mouth around those ... Read More
What’s that you say? You need something to cheer you up? Thursday is a bore because it’s almost Friday but not quite Friday and you’re having a hard time staying awake enough to even make it to Friday? Think your life is rough? Well think again.This is Marcel. Marcel is a shell. Marcel wears shoes and seems somewhat gender-ambiguous. Marcel ate some cheese once, but it was probably a bad idea. Marcel has to walk on phones to talk on them. Marcel ... Read More

We're so excited about the Betty White/Jay-Z combo, we've decided to try something different: a kind of liveblog for SNL! Post your thoughts as the show happens in the comments. I've got my money on a sketch featuring a rapping Betty.

Ladies of a certain age seem to be having their moment in the media right now. Last night, I watched a few episodes of Sunset Daze, the new reality show on WE about feisty folks living in a retirement home in Arizona, whose ages range from their 60s to their 70s. The nouveau riche Real Housewives, who are in their 40s and 50s, are acting up every week on Bravo, and soon we'll have another Sex and the City movie featuring glam gals in their 40s and 50s. On the Web, ... Read More

We were excited when the Betty White love started. We were excited when it was announced she would host. And now, we have her promos to keep us occupied until the actual show this Saturday night. We’ll be opening a post that night so everyone can comment-liveblog their thoughts, so keep your eyes peeled! And check out her promos under the jump.
I think this means that she and Jay-Z will have to be in a sketch together. If they ... Read More

Heck yes. According to People, last night at a post-Oscars party, Betty White confirmed what millions on the internet had been speculating about: she will appear on Saturday Night Live sometime in the near future. Though she didn't specify a date (and Lorne Michaels, the show's executive producer, already dismissed claims that she'd be co-hosting a special "Women of Comedy" episode) and it isn't clear if she'll be actually hosting, this is certainly awesome.
Aside ... Read More

Poor Snookie, she may not be the dumbest Guidette on the show, but she is the clearly the favorite for parodies, well the Situation comes close. I dont know, Snookie is the favorite around here too, she reminds me a little of Donut, from the classic Switchblade Sisters. Who's your favorite?
