We love Maude Garrett and we know you do too! Let's be honest, there isn't much we don't know about Maudie but we took to Twitter to see if we could uncover any Maudie Mysteries™.
Melissa McCarthy’s new comedy had her getting very familiar with co-star Kristen Bell.
Snap King Louis Virtel has gone away for two months to seek fame and fortune in the wilds of entertainment (be sure to watch TruTV's "Billy on the Street" to see his work).
Filling in, HitFix is delighted to present actor, comedian, movie obsessive Griffin Newman who will be guest snapping over the next eight weeks.
In his hello video, Griffin gives us a peek at what he's looking forward to over the next to months during his Snap tour of duty. Say hello to Griffin Newman!
Susan Sarandon has long had a comic side, and not just because she hammed it up in Rocky Horror and fired off one-liners in Thelma and Louise. The Oscar-winning actress exudes brassiness, and occasionally she picks movies like The Banger Sisters and Tammy that highlight her quirks. (Don't forget her saucy, truly underrated voice work in James and the Giant Peach as Miss Spider.) Now she's playing the most intrusive yet believable mom in the new comedy The Meddler and it's a perfect fit.

This has been a fun, and weird, and uneven, and sometimes upsetting (Remember when He Who Shall Not Be Named hosted?) season, and it has been a pure joy to write about it, in both good times and bad. But as the great Nelly Furtado once sang, all good things come to an end, and so tonight we witness Season 41’s swan song-- guided by Fred Armisen, famous for his own run on SNL, his musical skill on Late Night with Seth Meyers, his IFC shows Portlandia and Documentary Now, and that time we let him play Obama because he was the most ethnic cast member SNL had.
Tonight’s host is Brie Larson: indie film actress, recent Oscar winner, and former singer of pop punk album Finally Out of P.E, whose single She Said featured pretty heavily on the rotation of my first ever square iPod nano. Larson brought a solid enthusiasm to an episode that featured a heavier amount of good sketches than bad, proving that maybe long hiatuses are good for this show, since their cast and crew, if legend is to be believed, subsist on very little sleep and very much junk food. Glad those guys got some rest, and brought some laughs to this enjoyable Mother’s Day episode.
Cold Open: Church Chat: Dana Carvey’s Church Chat Lady returns to interview Ted Cruz and Donald Trump with her signature judgy passive aggression. The Church Chat Lady isn’t a person I would typically consider a voice of reason, but election season has the world topsy turvy, and tonight I agreed with a surprising amount of what she said. This sketch was at times a bit uneven, and overstayed its welcome by about a minute, but it was a blessing to get a break from all the debate and Fox News parody cold opens we’ve been flooded with this season. Plus, it’s always nice to see an old favorite SNL character return, and though bringing back Dana Carvey’s Church Chat Lady wasn’t the most obvious choice, it was a fun one. And boy did it feel cathartic to watch her call out the two Republican front runners with that trademark blend of judgmentalism and a sour-lemon smile. A-
Our host for tonight is Julia Louis-Dreyfus, best known for her work on Seinfeld and Veep and for being something of an all-around comedy goddess. She held her own tonight in an episode that was a bit hit-or-miss, with pre-taped segments outshining weaker live sketches, but overall containing several memorably funny moments. Let’s dig in!
