'Saturday Night Live' Season 40, Episode 16 Recap: Dwayne Johnson/George Ezra

March 29th, 2015 10:49am EDT
The Rock SnL
As he noted in his monologue, Dwayne Johnson is known for joining established film franchises and giving them a successful shot in the arm. Accordingly, his fourth “SNL” hosting stint heavily favored sketches that commented on the host’s reputation and familiar pop culture entities in general. Many of this season’s hosts, even the most capable ones, have been relegated to mostly utility roles. But Johnson was effectively given plenty of opportunities to shine, as he was allowed to play to his strengths, and the result was an episode that overall also played to its strengths.

You likely remember JP and Ashley Rosenbaum from the Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise, but the cameras turned off a long time ago and now the happy couple are focused on being parents to their new son Fordham, and helping other families.

"Parenthood has been an absolute joy so far," enthused Ashley. "Ford is a very sweet, and 'easy' ...

'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'Damned If You Do' - Jokers On I
After the Impractical Jokers showed us their first-ever tour special, they were back to business as usual, pranking America and embarrassing each other. In "Damned If You Do," we learned that none of these guys are in shape and all of them are generally out of their element. This, of course, only made everything funnier.

Challenge #1: Skate Me To Balloon
The guys are playing their awesome balloon game from "Fly Me To Balloon," except now they're making it infinitely worse by doing it on ice skates. Murr takes on Sal, and the guy they go after first has no sense of humor. The second guy bla...

'Archer' Recap And Review: 'Drastic Voyage, Part 1' - Small Scal
Another Archer season, another crazy trip. "Drastic Voyage, Part 1" is the first half of the show's two-part season finale, and it finds a reason to turn our heroes into very small versions of themselves for maximum hilarity.

It all begins when Holly (Gary Cole) is briefing the team, telling them to keep their mouths shut, which of course they won't do. In fact, Pam is taking a selfie with the gang as he speaks. But Holly is onto these guys' shtick, assigning everyone to their new mission because he knows they'll all sneak into it anyway.

He wants them to help a Russian molecular scientis...

"We wanted to close the doors of ‘Downton Abbey’ when it felt right and natural for the storylines to come together and when the show was still being enjoyed so much by its fans. We can promise a final season full of all the usual drama and intri...

'The Americans' Recap: That Time Keri Russell Killed An Old Lady
Previously - Martha falls for "Clark's" line. The Jennings' South African colleague brutally murdered the apartheid guy with gasoline and a tire. Frat boy turned bungling political activist Todd was allowed to go free.

The Americans is the series that you assumed would never involve an Artificial Intelligence. When you assume it makes an...anyway,I give you FBI Mail Robot! I kid, I did glean a little bit more from this stark, disturbing episode. Guest star Lois Smith brought it all, and her scenes with Keri Russell were like a really intense play.
