The bizarre subculture of dime-store Christmas movies seems oddly pervasive this year, and has not gone unnoticed at SNL.

Donald Trump will host Saturday Night Live on November 7, NBC has announced. If you loathe the reality star-turned-presidential candidate but have a weakness for expertly-crafted pop, you should also know that Sia is the musical guest...
Now give this a chance. It might sound boring – Adam Sandler talks about food with Conan O’Brien – but the former Saturday Night Live stars (Sandler was, of course, a cast member, while O’Brien as a long-time writer) have some pretty tall tales to share about their time on the show, specifically as it applies to meals.
