Live from New York, it's presidential hopeful Donald Trump!

Republican candidate Trump will make his second appearance in NBC's studio 8H as host for "Saturday Night Live" on Nov. 7. The outspoken real estate developer previously hosted the sketch comedy show on April 3, 2004.

Sia will be the musical guest.

Trump is the fourth host announced for "Saturday Night Live's" 41st season. Miley Cyrus opened the season on Oct. 3, followed by Amy Schumer this past weekend. Former "SNL" player Tracy Morgan will return to his old comedy stomping ground to host this weekend alongside musical guest Demi Lovato. 

The series has a long history of featuring major political names on the program, including Barack Obama, John McCain, Rudy Giuliani, Jesse Jackson, Sarah Palin and Al Gore. Most political candidates play themselves, often for a cameo in a sketch in which they meet their "SNL" counterpart or to declare the show's famous opening tag line.

Trump will become the second presidential candidate of the 2016 cycle to appear on the show.

Democratic contender Hillary Clinton took her Oct. 3 guest spot to another level when she appeared on the season opener as a wise bartender named Val, serving Hillary Clinton played by Kate McKinnon. 

"Donald Trump? Isn't he the one that's like 'Ugh, you're all losers,'" Clinton said while playing Val.

Taran Killam recently took on the role of Trump on "SNL." Darrell Hammond, who serves as "Saturday Night Live's" announcer now, previously played Trump.

<![CDATA[Tracy Morgan Returns to Stand-Up]]> Tue, 13 Oct 2015 08:22:19 -0700 http://media.nbcsandiego.com/images/213*120/Tracy-Morgan-539019653990.jpg

Tracy Morgan has made his return to stand-up comedy more than a year after he was seriously injured in a deadly bus crash.

Morgan, who suffered a traumatic brain injury that left him in a coma for eight days, performed two shows in Manhattan Monday night.

The 46-year-old comedian tweeted about his performance at Greenwich Village’s Comedy Cellar to his more than 3 million followers, saying he was “picking up the pieces.”

Fellow comedian Judah Friedlander, who appeared on NBC’s “30 Rock” with Morgan, was listed on the Comedy Cellar’s official bill, but he didn’t know about Morgan’s surprise appearance, according to Refinery 29.

Morgan also did a set at The Stand Comedy Club in the Gramercy area.

Morgan is still recovering from injuries sustained in the June 7, 2014 accident when a Wal-Mart truck on the New Jersey Turnpike slammed into the back of a limousine-bus carrying the former "30 Rock" star and others who were returning from a comedy show in Delaware. Morgan suffered a traumatic brain injury, a broken leg, and broken ribs in the crash.

Comedian James "Jimmy Mack" McNair of Peekskill, a mentor of Morgan's, was killed. Three other passengers in the limo suffered serious injuries.

The National Transportation Safety Board determined the truck driver, Kevin Roper, of Jonesboro, Georgia, had been awake for 28 hours before the crash. Roper faces several criminal charges, including death by auto, in state court. He has pleaded not guilty. He wasn't a defendant in Morgan's federal lawsuit.

Meanwhile, Walmart has settled a $10 million lawsuit with McNair’s children and has reached a confidential settlement with Morgan.

Morgan will make a televised comeback to “Saturday Night Live” as host this week.

<![CDATA[Runway Show Highlights Alternative Beauty Standards]]> Tue, 13 Oct 2015 06:36:19 -0700 http://media.nbcsandiego.com/images/213*120/AP_5229244546130_Dwarves.jpg

During Paris Fashion Week -- but separate from it -- the France's culture ministry hosted a dwarf fashion show, drawing attention to alternative beauty standards in an industry that values tall, thin bodies. 

Fifteen dwarves, all under 4’ 4” tall and all women, walked their own runway, showing off spring-summer styles, according to The Associated Press. 

Event organizers said the fashion industry’s elitism doesn’t leave room for short models, but that didn’t stop these models from strutting the runway anyway.

"Saturday Night Live" dove head-first into the country's gun control debate in a series of blistering sketches and a "Weekend Update" segment devoted to the issue.

After tackling the week's big news — like Kevin McCarthy dropping out of the House Speaker race and Justin Bieber's nude photos — "Weekend Update" host Colin Jost debated gun control with Michael Che.

Jost argued that devotion to gun ownership in America is linked to Americans’ obsession with unnecessary things. “We don’t need a Baconator. We don’t need a beer that’s a margarita inside a beer. And we definitely don’t need our dogs to wear Halloween costumes,” he said. 

Che quipped that drivers licenses, a purple belt in karate, and tickets to see Kevin Hart are all harder to get than a gun and went on to tell viewers that, “you can't have whatever you want.” 

“The forefathers said you had the right to own a gun. They also said you had the right to own people," he said, before comparing the Constitution to a grandfather.

"He's wise, we love him but he's getting really, really old and sometimes we have to go into the other room and talk about what we are going to do with him."

Amy Schumer, who made her hosting debut, got in on the gun control jokes as well, in a skit about a city council meeting an a commercial spoof, mocking Americans' attachment to guns. In the city council skit, Schumer played the role of a little girl, who wanted to know if she was allowed to bring firearms to school. 

"You have a gun?" an astounded city council member, played by Bobby Moynihan, asked.

"Yes sir a bunch," Schumer said. "I'm very pro-life. Pro-my-life!"

In the gun commercial, Schumer plays a woman, who is touched to receive a firearm as a gift from her date. Sentimental music plays in the background as a narrator says, "there are things we all share: love, family, connection, a sense of purpose. And also, guns."

In her opening monologue, Schumer knocked the Kardashians for being poor role models for women who weren’t born with their figures or faces, and told a story about when she asked Hillary Clinton if she ever drank tequila. Schumer said that the presidential candidate replied that she only drank it when her friends made her, which led Schumer to wonder — “who’s hazing Hillary Clinton?”  

Schumer later appeared in skits about a hands-free selfie-stick, a porn-star teacher and a Delta flight gone horribly wrong.

A man who defeated Dave Grohl in a battle of the bands competition when the Foo Fighters' lead singer was in 9th grade reunited with the rockstar at the band's concert in Memphis, Tennessee, this week. 

"Tonight, the man that beat me in the high school battle of the bands — don't boo him, he's a good man, evidently a better [expletive] musician than I am — if you're around here somewhere, ... get your [expletive] up here!" Grohl announced at the sold-out show. 


After Grohl said it was time to get his revenge, Chet Lott, originally from Pascagoula, Mississippi, jogged onto the stage to help the grunge band sing a cover of Queen's "Under Pressure," according to NBC affiliate WMC


The rivalvry between Grohl and Lott—the son of Senate Majority leader Chester "Trent" Lott—started decades ago at Thomas Jefferson High School in Washington, D.C., in 1984. Lott is a respected Kentucky-based singer himself and uses his music to raise money for Hurricane Katrina victims, according to Lott's website

"I may have won the battle, but you won the war," Lott told Grohl at the end of their set.

<![CDATA[Colbert Condemns Cubs-Cursing Goats]]> Fri, 09 Oct 2015 08:26:24 -0700 http://media.nbcsandiego.com/images/213*120/AP763373860260.jpg

Stephen Colbert isn’t afraid of billy goats anymore – not after the Chicago Cubs' wild card win on Wednesday.

In fact, the “Late Show” host, who lived in Chicago for 11 years, is so inspired by the Cubs, he went on a rant against goats Thursday night, even going as far as kicking one out of his studio.

“I’m not scared of you knuckle-kneed sheep wannabees anymore,” he said. “Oh, that feels good. So many things I’ve wanted to say about your kind for years, but I’ve been too afraid because of the curse. Not anymore.”

He then went on to insult goat cheese and soul patch beards.

“What are you going to do about it goats? Curse the Cubs again? I dare you,” he said. “The Cubs are unstoppable.”

The infamous Billy Goat curse dates back to Oct. 6, 1945, when Billy Goat Tavern owner Billy Sianis claimed to place a curse on the Cubs to prevent them from ever hosting another World Series at Wrigley Field.

But as far as Colbert is concerned, the curse is gone.

“Now it looks like the days of the curse are behind my Cubs,” he said. “I think I can safely say without any fear of jinxing it they’re going all the way. The Cubs are going to win the World Series.”

He even made a 2015 Cubs World Series Championship T-shirt, featuring a goat.

But when one four-legged member of the audience didn’t cheer on his beloved team, Colbert decided to kick it out.

“There is no possible way this decision can come back to haunt me, or the Cubs. After all the Cubs are clearly the greatest of all time (G.O.A.T.),” he said.

He then led the audience in a G.O.A.T. chant.

Whether Colbert’s daring messages will ring true this season remains to be seen. The Chicago Cubs begin their battle against the St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium Friday for the National League Division Series.
