Whenever an SNL alum comes back to host the show, it’s pretty much a guaranteed good episode. When Kristen Wiig comes back to host SNL, the world collectively breathes a sigh of relief because SNL feels complete again. Or something like that! The point is, Kristen hosted Saturday’s show and the consensus seems to be that she did pretty great. In case you missed it, here are a few of her best skits from Saturday’s show.
The accents in this skit are amazing, but the fact that Kristen, Fred, and Bill keep almost-breaking makes it even better. Also, Maya Rudolph, Kristen’s co-star in the films "Bridesmaids" and "Friends With Kids," makes an appearance!
The Backstreet Boys announced they'll embark on a summer 2013 tour, starting in August. If you follow the blog at all, then you know I'm kind of a fan, so I'm extremely pumped.

As with anything Google creates, their commercials tend to hit you right in the feelings. They've had "Dear Sophie," where parents chronicle their child's life through Google videos, documents, and calendars; "Dog," where a family finds a stray dog and adopts him; "Parisian Love," where two people fall in love in Paris; "Google Chrome: Jess Time," which tells the story of a father/daughter who recently lost their wife/mother; and "Brother and Sister," which follows a sibling rivalry-turned-friendship. So it's hardly surprising that they're latest commercial focuses on how wonderful moms are, just in time for Mother's Day.
What do you think? And don't forget: tomorrow is Mother's Day, so do something nice for the wonderful women in your life!
This week, we're talking about how Spock meets Spock (part deux), John Krasinski is the next Katy Perry, and we buy boxes of tissues in order to prepare for "The Office" series finale.
Star Trek early release
"Star Trek Into Darkness" was originally supposed to be released Friday, May 17. But trekkies are getting so antsy that the movie release has been moved up one day. According to Paramount, the Wednesday evening IMAX showings are already sold out, so movie execs wanted to give fans a chance to see the film even if they weren’t able to nab tickets. Plus, with movies like "Iron Man 3" and "The Great Gatsby" opening early overseas, they figured: why not? Personally, I’m pretty excited to see the film. I still love that they found a way to write Leonard Nimoy (original Spock) into the first movie to appear alongside Zachary Quinto (new Spock), even if it was a little hokey. But others seem to dig it, too, as evidenced by the latest Audi commercial (above)!
