It finally happened.

One brave (or stumped) Jeopardy contestant got Alex Trebek to say "Turd Ferguson" during Sept. 16's final round.

This is one for the ages folks.



Of course, she got the idea from none other than Burt Reynolds and his mastery of comedic timing and poise.



"It's a funny name."

You can watch that whole classic Saturday Night Live skit here:

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has a lot of battles to fight — Dippin' Dots, Daft Punk, all that gum. So why not give him a little reprieve and let someone else take over?

Has the president considered comedian Melissa McCarthy? Her audition on this week's SNL was certainly memorable, especially when she picked up the podium and attacked the Fake News with it. 

Hire her. Now.

After the activist group Deportracism.com offered to pay $5,000 to an audience member for heckling Trump about his racist remarks on the campaign trail, Larry David did just that as part of the SNL opening monologue highlighting Donald Trumps many flaws. Who knows if he will really get that $5,000.

She came here to chew gum and kick ass, and she's, well, gonna do both. 

On SNL last week, Melissa McCarthy went full ham on the gum chewin', dippin' dottin' White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer. While he was a pretty good sport about it, Trump was not. He didn't like his man Spice being played by lady. Sad! 

So what did she do, McCarthy came back for another round of questions, and she brought with her a big stick of gum and a motorized podium. A message to that reality-TV gameshow host who spent the weekend playing golf, hire this woman. She's strong like bull.

Peter Dinklage (AKA Tyrion from Game of Thrones) hosted SNL over the weekend. "Space Pants" was pretty good, but his best skit had to be this spoof of Naked & Afraid with Leslie Jones.

Ariana Grande showed off her singing and impression skills performing the songs of other popular singers in this sketch. She is also making headlines for uttering profanity during her monologue. 

This isn't the first time she's shown off her amazing skill for impersonation. She was also very convincing in an appearance on the Tonight Show:

Republicans are about to be pissed. Poehler and Fey take all the rumors surrounding Hillary Clinton (email related jests galore), and compile the mess into one absurd, comical stereotype.

Fey's Palin spends much of the skit hung up on '08, and all the fun she had running for office. She carries on with a nice little monologue: "Oh gee, I should be the one giving you advice because in 2008 I got a heck of a lot closer to the White House than this gal did," the Palin character said. "So here's my advice: you gotta do what you believe in your spirit, but also America, but not teachers and their fat liberal books, but also and even why worry about fast food wages with their status quo — which is another Latin word, status quo — meanwhile Americans are being taken for a ride and also the man can only ride you when your back is bent, so."

Since Beyoncé dropped her newest single, 'Formation', people have been engaged in debate.  A lot of people have been complaining that Beyoncé's references to Black history and culture in her song, video and Super Bowl halftime show didn't belong in such a 'family friendly' broadcast like Super Bowl 50. Supporters of the song have pointed out that Beyoncé is, in fact, Black. As this Saturday Night Live sketch points out, it's not really that shocking that a Black woman would make reference to who she is and her heritage in her music. It's actually pretty silly to make such a big deal about it. 

For reference, you can watch the 'Formation' video to see what all the fuss is about:
