Who Is Hosting SNL Tonight? 3/17/18

LOS ANGELES, CA - OCTOBER 04: Bill Hader attends CBS' "The Carol Burnett Show 50th Anniversary Special" at CBS Televison City on October 4, 2017 in Los Angeles, California.

Fans are in for a treat tonight when Bill Hader takes over the SNL stage for the first time in five years. Hader was a cast member on Saturday Night Live from 2005 to 2013 and will be reuniting with his sketch comedy friends to promote his new HBO series, Barry.

Barry follows Barry Berkman (Hader), a hitman from Cleveland who comes upon a theater class and decides he wants to be an actor. In a recent interview with USA Today, Hader dished, "If he gets to his goal of becoming a stage actor, he then becomes known and will probably have to be killed.... he's putting his life at risk to pursue this dream of being able to feel again."


Hader created the show along with Alec Berg, and also directed the first three episodes. He tells USA Today, "My heroes were filmmakers. I was reading books about Martin Scorsese. So finally being able to do that was great... Some of that is good, because it keeps you sharp and focused. Mine would spill over into shaking, I couldn’t project my voice, I was quiet, I would flub stuff, because I was a wreck."

Hader racked up three Emmy nominations over the course of his SNL career. He has appeared in comedy films like You, Me and Dupree, Superbad, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Maggie's Plan and Inside Out. The actor also held leading roles in The Skeleton Twins and Trainwreck.

Arcade Fire Will Perform

Musical guest Arcade Fire will join Hader tonight. This marks the group's fifth time taking the SNL stage.

Arcade Fire is a Canadian indie rock band composed of husband and wife couple Win Butler and Regine Chassagne, along with William Butler, Richard Reed Parry, Tim Kingsbury, and Jeremy Gara. The group was founded in 2000 by Butler and Deu, who were classmates at the time. The band has received critical acclaim for their work. At the 86th Academy Awards, Butler and Owen Pallett were nominated for Best Original Score for composing the music for the film Her.

As Democratic House impeachment managers make their case against President Donald Trump, one of President Donald Trump's favorite news networks is going to lengths to keep the bevy of evidence against him from reaching their viewers' ears.

At first, Fox News tried scrolling Trump's so-called accomplishments alongside video of the historic proceedings. Now, the network's latest attempt to distract from the Democrats' arguments is raising eyebrows.

Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman was one of the first witnesses in the House of Representatives' initial impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

Vindman testified before the House's select committee on impeachment late last year after hearing Trump's infamous July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

The administration of President Donald Trump relies on its white Evangelical base to keep its support consistently hovering around 40 percent.

In keeping with this, President Donald Trump often invokes anti-abortion values he claims to hold dear. He's falsely claimed that Democrats are determined to rip babies from their mothers' wombs and that parents often discuss with their doctors whether or not to keep the baby...after the baby is born.

These claims are patently false, but they rile up the base.

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos seems to be playing right along in promoting abortion hysteria, if a recent speech is any indication.

After hours of evidence presented by the House Impeachment managers in the Senate trial against President Donald Trump, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) strayed even further into the abyss of fanaticism as he defended the President to reporters.

Graham, a Trump critic turned ally, didn't attempt to refute any of the myriad evidence laid out by Democrats, but instead dismissed the claims that Trump did anything wrong when he withheld congressionally approved aid from Ukraine in exchange for an investigation into his political rival.

President Donald Trump seems determined to use the Presidency to turn a profit while in office.

Just weeks after national outcry forced him to withdraw his efforts to hold the massive 2020 G7 Summit of world leaders at his own Trump Doral Resort in Miami, Trump will soon address the Republican National Committee there for its winter meeting.

And the prices just went up.
