BANTER WITH BEN AND LISA #70: Kardashian Drama, Kanye vs. Kimmel, Gravity, and Sneaky Children

This week on “Banter with Ben and Lisa,” we once again go to the listeners for our topics of banter. First up we discuss a nine-year-old who snuck his way onto a Delta flight across the country. Then it’s on to other pressing matters such as the Kris and Bruce Jenner breakup, Lamar Odom’s drug […]

VIDEO: ‘Who’s On Top?’ from SNL

Saturday Night Live returned to the air on Saturday with its 37th season premiere, and with Alec Baldwin serving as host, it was its strongest opener in years (comedy-wise). Almost every skit worked, and even the weakest of the lot provided many laughs. On the downside: Kenan Thompson is still on the show, and Lorne […]

No One Can Resist My Schweddy Balls (Ice Cream)

The Curse of Hoda?

Saturday Night Live announced its new cast members today (Vanessa Bayer, Paul Brittain, Taran Killam and Jay Pharoah), a new class which once again lacks any semblance of a black woman (guess they’ll be recruiting Maya Rudolph for Michelle Obama once again). Not returning for the thirty-sixth season will be Jenny Slate, whose most famous […]

Betty White Shines on ‘Saturday Night Live.’ Also, Three Unaired Skits!

At long last, Betty White took center stage as the host of last night’s Saturday Night Live, and I think everyone was both delighted and relieved that her stint proved to be one of the best, if not the best, of the season. With so much hype around the Golden Girl’s appearance, it would have […]
