'Saturday Night Live' Season 41, Episode 13: Melissa McCarthy/Kanye West

2/14/2016 12:57pm EST
Kanye West Brings New Music To SNL, Has Epic Rap Battle With Kyl
Melissa McCarthy is one of the most reliable “SNL” hosts of this decade. She always brings her A-game, making herself right at home at 30 Rockefeller Plaza. She has her critics who call her out for playing the same character over and over: brash, over-the-top, and painfully awkward.

That can be a problem with a film career (though she usually brings more depth than her critics give her credit for), but in sketch comedy, it can easily be a winning formula.

Frequent musical guest Kanye West is also reliable, but his is a reliable unreliability, in which the stage design and sound style will...

'Chicago Fire' Star Yuri Sardarov Turns Comedic In 'Boyband'
Saving the day on Chicago Fire is serious stuff, so it's a fun change of pace to see Yuri Sardarov (whom fans of the NBC show will know as Brian "Otis" Zvonecek) go for the laughs in the web series Boyband.

The second season officially premieres today, including Yuri as one of the members of the band's hilarious glam squad, and we caught up with him last week to talk about comedy and how he'd judge his own sense of style.

First off, how did he go from firefighter to stylist? Credit that to one of his Chicago Fire co-stars. "I think Chris Stolte, who plays Mouch, saw the first episode and ...

Kenya Moore
Kenya Moore may have found love with a man named Matt, but it sounds like she still has that one big wish; to have a baby. She recently revealed that she would be pursuing IVF when the show wasn’t filming, because she would then have time to go to the necessary appointments. While Kenya may want to share the pregnancy news herself, it sounds like one of her co-stars may have done it for her. Phaedra Parks recently dished some news about Kenya Moore, according to a new report. It happened when Phaedra visited Dish Nation, where Porsha Williams works.

“Honey, I did hear that one of her NON b...

James Murray On Season 5 Of 'Impractical Jokers': 'The Show's Ge
A new year means a new season of Impractical Jokers. The fabulous Staten Island foursome have now spent more than a hundred episodes making us laugh by battling to embarrass each other, and they're not slowing down.

The Impractical Jokers are back for a fifth season packed with laughs, mayhem and public humiliation. In the season premiere "HellCopter," the Jokers revisit an old but good challenge and then completely ruin wax museums for everyone. Who's the big loser? And who does something they'd probably like to take back? Here's our Scorecard.

Challenge #1: Bad Reception
The guys are playing receptionists in another office, having to do and say what they're told. That starts with Joe, who discovers the other Jokers have planted an entire drawer full of hot dogs (naturally he eats one). He then gets ...
