Last night's telecast of Saturday Night Live, with Kevin Hart in his third time hosting, Alec Baldwin in a Christmas-themed Donald Trump skit and musical guest Foo Fighters, drew a 4.6 household Live+Same Day rating in the metered markets and a 2.0 in adults 18-49 in the markets with local people meters. That was up a tenth in households from last week's telecast hosted by James Franco. The 4.6 in households was the best SNL delivery since Nov. 4 (4.7 with host Larry

‘Saturday Night Live’ Review: The Show Limps Out of 2017 With Kevin Hart at the Helm
It’s the last “Saturday Night Live” of 2017, and you’d think NBC’s perennial sketch show would go out with the bang. Getting Kevin Hart to host and the Foo Fighters as the musical guest is pretty much a case of busting out the big guns, after all.

Unfortunately, this episode of “Saturday Night Live” can barely be considered an extravaganza, and the holiday aspects of it aren’t even memorable or strong enough to use “it’s a holiday episode!” as an excuse.

So, what happened?

Let’s start with the monologue. Kevin Hart goes with the standup routine monologue, which is obviously a good idea for a standup comedian — in theory. Boy, is this monologue a good idea in theory. (His execution is good too, but…

See Harry Styles Kiss James Corden in Christmas-Themed 'Carpool Karaoke'
James Corden and Late Late Show bandleader Reggie Watts drive around L.A. in Santa hats and ugly Christmas sweaters belting "Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town" in the latest episode of Carpool Karaoke. With help from some slick editing, the pair are joined by a who's who of stars: Harry Styles, Katy Perry, Usher, Bruno Mars, the Foo Fighters, Miley Cyrus, Pink, Sam Smith, Fifth Harmony, Ed Sheeran and Kelly Clarkson.

The result is a short, sweet holiday mash-up. Pink plays vigorous air-drums, Usher fakes a saxophone solo, Katy Perry mimes "making a list,

Who Will Sing at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Wedding Reception?

Who Will Sing at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Wedding Reception?
It will most certainly be the wedding party to top all wedding parties, but who will Prince Harry and Meghan Markle choose to sing at their wedding reception next spring?

One thing we know for sure is that the royal groom-to-be has no shortage of choices. He recently convinced both Bruce Springsteen and Bryan Adams to sing at the closing ceremony of the Invictus Games in September, showing his appreciation by bowing down to them both.

Last year, Coldplay dropped everything to headline a concert at Kensington Palace for his charity, Sentebale. And back in 2007, he called on Rod Stewart,

‘Saturday Night Live’ Review: James Franco Plays Himself, and Plays It Safe, in 4th Hosting Appearance
There’s still one more week to go before “Saturday Night Live” breaks for the holidays, but the show is still ramping up the yuletide cheer. In addition, like other “SNL” episodes with an experienced host at the helm, the tone this week felt more driven by their skill set than that of first-timers. And when it comes to this week’s host… well, it’s a very specific sort of tone.

Host: James Franco

Let’s be honest: James Franco is always at his best when he’s committing to a clear sort of character. It’s something we’re seeing right now with his performance as Tommy Wiseau in “The Disaster Artist,” and something we’ve seen before as he embodied known figures like James Dean or the dual roles of “The Deuce.”

In his fourth hosting appearance on “Saturday Night Live,” the role that Franco seems most comfortable playing is James Franco,

GRAMMYs 2018 Nominations: Bruno Mars, Jay-Z, Lorde and More -- See the Complete List
The nominees are in for the 60th Annual Grammy Awards, and music's biggest night will feature some of your favorite artists ...though some were snubbed.

Singer-songwriter Andra Day announced the four major categories -- Best New Artist, Record Of The Year, Song Of The Year, and Album Of The Year -- on Tuesday's CBS This Morning.

As far as snubs go, Ed Sheeran was only nominated for Best Pop Solo Performance for his track, "Shape of You," to the shock of many of his fans. Lady Gaga and Kesha also received minimal nominations, despite the popularity of their albums.

However, Jay-Z and Kendrick Lamar earned quite a few Grammy nods, as well as Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's "Despacito" song that features Justin Bieber.

Praise the Comedy Gods: Kevin Hart Will Host Saturday Night Live in December!

Saturday Night Live has the lineup to end all lineups for season 43. Not only did Ryan Gosling and Jay-Z kick things off in the season premiere on Sept. 30, but the comedy show also featured appearances from Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot, and The Big Sick's Kumail Nanjiani. Needless to say, it's been a very funny few months. In a move that we can only imagine is SNL's Christmas gift to us, December looks like it's going to be just as spectacular. The hosts for Dec. 2, Dec. 9, and Dec. 16 have all been nailed down, and they're equally incredible: Saoirse Ronan, James Franco, and Kevin Hart. This will mark the Lady Bird star's debut on the show, which she'll make alongside musical guests U2. Franco, who will appear with musical guest Sza, has already hosted the show three times before, and Hart, who is booked with seven-time musical guest the Foo Fighters,

The Top Uses of Foo Fighters Music in Movies or TV

I can still remember getting a Foo Fighter’s CD for a birthday or something and thinking “who the heck are these guys?”. They hadn’t even gotten that popular yet when their first CD landed, but it wasn’t too long after that they managed to capture the attention of music fans everywhere. The main draw at first was Dave Grohl since he formed it as a one-man band initially before forming the group that would eventually be seen as one of Seattle’s greatest bands ever. 5.

Frozen Metallica Mashup Has Kristen Bell and Dave Grohl Rocking Out

Frozen Metallica Mashup Has Kristen Bell and Dave Grohl Rocking Out
Foo Fighter's front man Dave Grohl took over hosting duties for Jimmy Kimmel Live on Halloween night dressed as David Letterman. But Grohl couldn't just host. Instead, he enthusiastically backed up Kristen Bell on a thrash metal version of Frozen song "Do You Want to Build a Snowman" mashed up with Metallica hit "Enter Sandman." While Grohl was dressed as David Letterman, full beard and all, he did his best to imitate Metallica's Lars Ulrich behind the kit while Bell channeled her inner James Hetfield on the mic.

While Dave Grohl's Halloween costume was tough to beat, Kristen Bell came out as Magnum P.I. (Tom Selleck}, complete with mustache, wig, Hawaiian shirt, and some sweet chest hair. During the main segment interview, Grohl expressed how happy his kids were that he got to hang out and interview Kristen Bell, aka Elsa from Frozen. Bell was on the show

At this point, we can all agree that Kristen Bell is one of the best celebrity talk show guests out there.

Liam Gallagher on the Hard Road to His Hard Rocking Comeback: 'Being a Liam Gallagher Fan Must Be F—ing Hard Work'

Liam Gallagher on the Hard Road to His Hard Rocking Comeback: 'Being a Liam Gallagher Fan Must Be F—ing Hard Work'
William John Paul “Liam” Gallagher. Even his name sounds like a supergroup—some kind of Frankenstein’s amalgam that fuses a continuum of British rock, glass-shattering volume, and a semi-lethal Twitter account. Lord knows he’s packed an entire band’s worth of swagger into one man. Onstage at New York City’s McKittrick Hotel last July for his first American performance as a solo artist, he assumes his trademark position, arms clasped behind his parka-covered torso, crouched in a perpetual stare-down with an audience. He’s flanked by a banner that spells out not his name, but might as well be: “Rock ‘N’ Roll.
