Kristen Wiig’s Gilly To Host Thursday’s SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE Primetime Special With Steve Martin & Alec Baldwin!!

I am – Hercules!! Talkback hatred for SNL’s hilarious Gilly sketches has not discouraged NBC from giving the character her own primetime Christmas clip special. The special will also feature new material starring Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin, who are linked with each other in at least three other ways: * They are the two most frequent SNL hosts in the history of the series and have appeared together in sketches depicting their rivalry; * They co-star in Nancy Meyers’ big-screen Christmas Day release “It’s Complicated”; and * They co-host the next Oscars together. Look! Press release!
SNL GETS INTO THE HOLIDAY SPIRIT WITH “SNL PRESENTS: A VERY GILLY CHRISTMAS” A TWO-HOUR PRIMETIME SPECIAL ON THURSDAY, DECEMBER 17 FROM 8PM-10PM ET ON NBC NEW YORK – December 8, 2009 – SNL premieres a new holiday compilation, "SNL Presents: A Very Gilly Christmas" on Thursday, December 17 from 8:00pm – 10:00pmET. This is SNL's first holiday special since 2002. The two-hour special will include brand-new material with Alec Baldwin, Steve Martin, the infamous troublemaker "Gilly" (played by Kristen Wiig), and others. The special will also feature favorite holiday-themed sketches from SNL's 35-year history. SNL holiday favorite sketches will include "NPR's Delicious Dish and the Schweddy Balls" with Alec Baldwin, "A Holiday Wish" with Steve Martin, alongside newer fare like Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg's "D**k in a Box." "Saturday Night Live" is from SNL Studios in association with Broadway Video. The creator and executive producer is Lorne Michaels. Steve Higgins produces.
“Twilight” star Taylor Lautner hosts tonight with musical guest Bon Jovi. James Franco hosts next week’s last new SNL of the decade with musical guest Muse. My favorite sketches from last week: 11:30 p.m. Saturday. NBC. 8 p.m. Thursday. NBC.

    And Gilly is about the least funny thing SNL has ever done

  • Dec. 12, 2009, 2:53 a.m. CST

    How dare the show go on...

    by Heckles

    AICN TB'ers should program NBC, dammit! Actually, the network couldn't do much worse. For the record, Gilly is kind of funny. But SNL is riding Wiig too much. Spread the wealth, Lorne.

  • Dec. 12, 2009, 2:57 a.m. CST

    Potato Chip was classic.

    by Shermdawg

    Best show of the season last week. Easily.

  • Dec. 12, 2009, 2:58 a.m. CST

    Also, no Gilly hate from me.

    by Shermdawg

    That's one of Wiig's best characters.

    When did the Oscars start promoting people's films?

    by Chakraborty

    I didn't realize Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin were going to be in a film together when I first heard that...but I saw the's that Meryl Streep movie. Tha fuck? Only a matter of time before it's Will Ferrell and Jack Black hosting.

  • Dec. 12, 2009, 4:56 a.m. CST

    Haha. Good!

    by DutchRudder

    I like Gilly. Wiig rules! Bring on MACGRUBER!

    when baldwin and martin were announced as oscar hosts..

    by emeraldboy

    I asked exactly the same question as you did. the answer I got was that this was noting new, chakroborty. and the talkbacker who responded said that he had problem with it.

  • Dec. 12, 2009, 5:18 a.m. CST

    The Oscars will probably be more entertaining....

    by F-18

    ...than the SNL special.

    You don't take other people's pa-ta-to chips!

    by ZAM1138

    Glad to see someone else liked that skit. Just crazy and surreal enough to make you go "what?!" Give whoever wrote that more weed and a raise. Hate Taylor Lautner on principle of him being younger than me, being in better shape and hosting SNL at 17. Martin/Baldwin special could be cool. Gilly never felt like that great of a character to carry a whole ep. McGruber maybe

  • Dec. 12, 2009, 7:18 a.m. CST

    The potato chip sketch was THE sketch of the decade!

    by JettL93

    it's name will echo in the halls of the universe for all time. More sketches like that is what the show needs

  • Dec. 12, 2009, 7:19 a.m. CST

    Gilly is funny?

    by liljuniorbrown

    Her standing there with a stupid look saying "what?" after something happens off camera and someone else yells her name a half dozen times....thats hysterical? That should be made into a three and a half hour Avatar like epic. Damn Herc, doesn't take much to crack your shit up does it? I'm no SNL hater by any stretch and I think Wiig has funny sketches but that shits the opposite of funny.

  • Dec. 12, 2009, 9:32 a.m. CST

    Good God

    by BizarroJerry

    This sketch I sure don't get. I switch it off every time. I liked Wiig early on, but all her characters are now based on a silly voice and repetition.

  • Dec. 12, 2009, 9:36 a.m. CST

    Gilly is HILARIOUS! Let's do a sketch now!

    by daggor

    Gilly...... What? Giiiiillyyyy... Sorry. Hah!

  • Dec. 12, 2009, 10:05 a.m. CST

    It's Complicated was terrible

    by SifoDyasJr.

    You'd think that a movie with Meryl Streep, Steve Martin, and Alec Baldwin would be good, or at least somewhat funny, but nope. Easily one of the worst films I've ever seen. I'm just glad I didn't pay to see it.

  • Dec. 12, 2009, 10:13 a.m. CST

    Gilly=Severe Head Wound Harry

    by jimbojones123

    It is mid tier SNL. It is not the worst or best. It does drag a joke out a little longer than it should, by it is funny enough to giggle at, which is a top 50 percentile of any SNL episode -- including the sacred 70s epis.

  • Dec. 12, 2009, 11:30 a.m. CST

    You know this means a shitty GILLY movie is in the works

    by SpyGuy

    It follows the pattern of taking the least funny SNL sketch concept, beating it completely into the ground and then releasing it as a bigger-budget movie that earns $15 million in box office.

  • Dec. 12, 2009, 12:10 p.m. CST

    God I hope this means Kriten Wiig is leaving

    She's like a bad Molly Shannon. Too bad non of the other girls are funny.

    by menacingphantom

    Wow. This begs a question: is there a profession of enthusiasm so misguided that it actually invalidates all of someone's opinions? I mean if Herc thinks Gilly is "hilarious" can we have any trust in anything he says? Over on slashdot there was a thread about the Star Wars Holiday Special and some folks claimed to enjoy unironically. What does this mean about them as human beings?

  • Dec. 12, 2009, 12:31 p.m. CST

    With a tweenlighter hosting

    by Xiphos_2

    SNL will get monster ratings tonight. I don't understand why people find Gilly funny but then again humor is subjective so laugh away.

    Always loved and defended SNL, but...

    by SK229

    I have to say, I really, really fucking loathe it now. I can't stand Seth Myers and I think that him and some sort of weird, nepotistic-like tendencies on the show are what's to blame for how bad it is now. Especially concerning Wiig... she's like Amy Poehler... used to be in EVERY FUCKING SKIT. Why? Cause Tina Fey thinks she's funny and they're cool with each other... doesn't matter who else is talented and what the fuck the audience might want. It's like high school. I KNOW the show has always had ups and downs, but I think something else entirely has been working on it now since the latter part of the Tina Fey era.<p>Can you imagine if Eddie Murphy were starting out on SNL today? He'd get no airtime. He'd come onto weekend update as Gumby and that arrogant prick Myers would act like, "Ok, I let you on, you're funny, but not THAT funny... move along while I continue my limelight spot here." No wonder somebody like Chappelle needed his own show. The reason What Up Wit Dat? is so great and stands out is because it doesn't rely on Wiig's characters which are ALLLL the fucking same, dick jokes, vagina jokes, fart jokes, gay jokes, and/or drug jokes. That's ALL of the goddamn humor on that show now with very few exceptions. Remember when you'd get shit like Cowbell? The Thing that Wouldn't Leave? Buckwheat gets shot? When's the last time they had something like that? NONE of it relies on fucking toilet/sex humor. Eddie Murphy hardly ever (I'm actually thinking never) relied on that kind of crutch on the show, with the exception of Velvet Jones, and that was again more about the character and the way he delivered his lines. Let's face it, this generation of upcoming comics/comedy writers can't do anything else. There aren't really anymore movies like the The Burbs, National Lampoon's Vacation, Trading Places, Ghostbusters, etc., with the exception of Tropic Thunder. If there are writers out there that CAN do something else, where the fuck are they? They obviously can't get ahead.

  • Dec. 12, 2009, 3:35 p.m. CST

    What up wit dat does indeed rock hard

    by menacingphantom

    But Wiig is talented. She has a neurotic intensity and a commitment to her characters, but her best work is when she's not doing her catalog of stock parts.

  • Dec. 12, 2009, 3:36 p.m. CST

    I love Seth Meyers

    by SantiagoAndDunbar

    Enjoy everything about him. This season hasn't been great, but last season was. Hope he stays in charge for a long time.

  • I do however slightly enjoy the sketches because they are absolutely demented and disturbing

  • Dec. 12, 2009, 3:41 p.m. CST

    Kristen Wiig is a warped genius imo

    by smackfu

    I could watch her being strange all day long and never get bored.

  • Dec. 12, 2009, 3:46 p.m. CST

    She is talented.

    by BurnedNotice_Dude

    But so are many of the other cast members. How about giving them some air time. Also, Wiig is going towards the same direction Fey and Poehler headed which is overexposure. Seeing the same characters each week kind of gets old.

  • Dec. 12, 2009, 4:26 p.m. CST

    When he's currently starring on 30 Rock, and it's unlikely to be cancelled anytime soon.

    by caipirina

    probably a country thing .. at least other clips say 'not available in your location' ... but seriously ... they pull any SNL off youtube, which is vastly superior in terms of search engine ... and then put it in their crap format which can only be viewed by the people who get it free on TV anyways ... makes no sense .. do they really think they can sell the rights to the show in denmark, dubai or darnassus ???

    by torontoxic

    Agreed 100%. NBC execs have theirs heads up their asses. They're politically obsessed and self important to the point of insanity. <P> NBS is A THOUSAND TIMES WORSE than Fox News when it comes to brainwashing people on topics they have no actual knowledge of beyond how they can misconstrue current events and are heavily contributing to the rabid idiocy that has infected anyone under 40. They're simply interested in ripping people off and think they can wade through this whole internet thing with the same blind ignorance that fuels their political agenda.

    FUCK YOU SNL! I love you but Gilly is AWFUL!!

    by TheSecondQuest

    I mean, god damn- has there been a worse character in all of SNL this side of Carol? She. Is. Not. Funny. It's like they came up with a character that has no joke. Yes, Keenan gets one decent line in each skit- but it has nothing to do with the Gilly character. it's just as excuse for Forte to say "Gilly..." over and over into annoyance. AND THEY GAVE HER A STARRING ROLE IN A SPECIAL? Are they fucking nuts?

  • Dec. 12, 2009, 7:26 p.m. CST

    by Flim Springfield

  • Dec. 12, 2009, 10:19 p.m. CST


    by BizarroJerry

    The problem here is, most of the skits you mention actually involve characters, not just repetitive faces/voices. Sure, Wayne's World I suppose partly was popular for the stupidity. But Wayne and Garth were written as characters who had various lines of dialogue. It parodied a certain type of slacker / metal fan / teenager. Gilly is just, Christ, I dunno what it's even about.

  • Dec. 12, 2009, 10:24 p.m. CST


    by Thrillhouse77

    You're sort of on to it, right there. Gilly is about a 3-step joke that escalates through the sketch and adds nothing more. It's the same thing, every time. <p> Wayne and Garth used repetitive catch phrases and familiar mannerisms, but touched upon unique current events with every single one of their appearances. That's the mark of a great character.

    by Thrillhouse77

    The accents were ridiculous and unnecessary, the stakes were so hilariously petty, the gross-out moment was a great money-shot, and the whole thing, despite being the stupidest concept all year, was performed with such conviction.

    by JettL93

    Apparently she demanded a large junk of AICN's profits, when Harry said no, she posted a video bashing him sor sexual harrasement. Harry pulled the video and replaced it with a post saying AICN had decided to drop the script girl statements. It was pretty interesting stuff, i can't say i miss her posts, but i do miss her tits

    by TheJokesOnUs

    don't listen to the troll whose gimmick has worn out quicker than MCMXVII. Script Girl has some office job in Hollywood now and her employers find the videos creepy. Otherwise, you'd see she was still posting videos on YouTube and not just here. Go ahead, look through the history here and see if you can find the post of Harry explaining Script Girl's absence. You can't, because it never existed.

    by jim

    that he's just making it up. Scriptgirl had no power to post videos here on her own. She was never a contributor to this site. She made videos for Youtube; it was Harry who put her on here. As said above, the only reason she's absent from AICN is she is no longer posting on Youtube.

    Bad SNL

    by Crow3711

    First one in weeks, but this Taylor kid...I honestly was hoping he would pull it off....but he couldn't. He just isn't funny. He tried entirely too hard, oversold all his jokes, and killed most of the funny in the skits. Very disappointed this week. An unfortunate step in the wrong direction after a stellar few episodes in a row. Oh well..he's too new I think, not enough experience. Seems like a nice kid though

    by jim

    When they announced the hosts for the Oscars I do remember replying to someone asking if they did that sort of thing. I don't recall it ever being done with hosts, but they do it all the time with presenters. They don't even disguise it: "And now, the stars of the upcoming piece of crap generic paint by numbers wholly unoriginal heavily advertised yet buried in March Rom-Com, Ashton Kutcher and Cameron Diaz".<p>It's one of my Oscar peeves. They do so much crap to try and keep the show tight and on time yet they continue to let actors come out and spend 3 minutes apiece engaging, poorly, in banter as they read some lame "jokes" off cue cards. Here's a thought, cut that crap and let the behind the scenes winner take an extra 5 or 10 seconds to have his one moment in the spotlight to finish thanking everyone who's helped him over his 30 year career to get where he is.

    by DigitalDong

    Now he's up there with Jason, Bill, Bobby, and Will. More Abby was good. I was dying during the Middle School Choir sketch cause of Sandberg, but the one with Keenen as the Love Man had me rolling. Also Reba was in the crowd, lololol The PGA Tour announcements were pretty good. But no Digital Short and no Jon Bovi made me wonder. Maybe Jon Bovi will be on next week wondering why they didn't get to be the musical guests on SNL.

    Good Observation on Jon Bovi

    by Crow3711

    How could they not do a Jon Bovi skit when Bon Jovi is on? I mean, typically I don't even find those segments all that funny, but it could have been actually really funny if the real Bon Jovi had come out and spoofed himself a bit. He must be too cool or something. I find it hard to believe they didn't at least ask him.

Very much in the spirit of Mark Walberg for showing up an threatening Andy Samburg for his impersonation the following week. SNL also dropped the ball with a followup skit ti the Tiger thing. The PGA stuff was lame. Have not only ongoing sketches, but drag them from week to week. Serialized television is dominating these days, and this would elevate the show to must see.

    Man was that bad

    by TheFug

    That had to be about the worst episode of SNL I've ever seen. Every single skit bombed. Every single one. It's sad to say, but I'm beginning the think that the most talented cast member on this show - Bill Hader - is kind of beginning to mail it in. But who wouldn't mail it in in that situation? I mean, it's like when you are a super good ball-player and your coach just sucks and keeps on blowing games on you. How could you really bring a passion to work? They need to fire Lorne Michaels or just shoot this poor sick horse in the head and be over it. Maybe start up a new Saturday night skit show with some people who actually know what's funny ruling the roost. This is sorry, sorry, sorry shit going on here. Saturday Night Live is quickly becoming the Playboy Magazine of Television - something that was really good, that you remember fondly from growing up - but that when you look at it now, it's just a sorry imitation of what it once was. It's too bad for honestly talented guys like Bill Hader.
