no title

It's been two years since Tracy Morgan's terrible car accident that left the comedian in critical condition and killed his friend James McNair.

Since the tragedy, the Saturday Night Live alum has had quite a comeback as he returned to his old NBC stomping grounds to host the NBC sketch show, got back to stand up, and even made a surprise appearance at the Emmys!

Even though Tracy doesn't like talking about the accident, he did open up a bit when he stopped by Howard Stern on Tuesday, all about about the dirtier parts of recovery — like masturbation!

The 30 Rock star apparently cleaned his pipe A LOT at the hospital. He explained:

no title

It's no surprise Leslie Jones is having a BLAST at the Rio Olympics!

The Saturday Night Live cast member has been the unofficial olympic hype woman on social media for the past week, in what started off as passionately watching the games at home to actually being invited to Brazil to capture the action in person!

And you better believe the Ghostbusters star is making the best out of her time in Rio!

On Thursday, Jones was living every fan's dream — from hanging out with USA gymnastics stars Simone Biles and Aly Raisman to cheering on some historic swimming races!

Not only did the comedienne get to witness Simone Manuel become the first African-American to win an individual swimming Olympic gold medal, but she also got to see Michael Phelps become the most decorated Olympian EVER after his 22nd gold medal win!

Of course, the fun didn't stop there. Jones also got to hang out with fellow celebrity swim fan Matthew McConaughey — and even performed a "horrible" cartwheel for Romanian gymnastics coach Béla Károlyi!

Ch-ch-check out all the glorious fun Jones is having at Rio so far (below)!

Don't Worry About Fired SNL Stars Jay Pharoah & Taran Killam — They Both Already Have New Gigs Lined Up On The SAME Network!

no title

It's almost as if they're highly sought after in their field or something…

We still don't know what was going through Lorne Michaels' head earlier this week when he decided to fire both Taran Killam and Jay Pharoah after six years on Saturday Night Live… but it may have been the best thing possible for their careers.

That's because in just the two days since the NBC casting news first broke, both comedians already have new gigs lined up over at Showtime!

According to SHO president David Nevins at the Television Critics Association's press tour on Thursday, Taran will star in Season One of Friday Night Lights' Jason Katims' comedy anthology Mating, while Jay landed the pilot for a new show called White Famous from Californication's Tom Kapinos.

Needless to say, Showtime is much more critically acclaimed than NBC, so we're extremely happy that both actors were able to land on their feet following their sudden SNL terminations.

Unfortunately, no word on Jon Rudnitsky's potential prospects just yet…

Will U be watching Mating and/or White Famous on Showtime in 2017??

Jay Pharoah Finally Breaks His Silence After Surprise SNL Firing… But Is He Hinting At Behind-The-Scenes Drama?!

no title

Live from New York it's… only three of the cast?

Television viewers were modestly shocked on Tuesday when it was announced that both Taran Killam and Jay Pharoah had been unceremoniously fired from Saturday Night Live after six years on the late night sketch show.

Not only were they arguably the two most talented male players in the cast, but they're also two of the most featured comedians… which means Lorne Michaels must have something big planned for Season 42 to replace them…

While Taran addressed his sudden departure shortly after the NBC news broke, Jay remained suspiciously quiet all day long — as did fellow axed actor Jon Rudnitsky, but he was still new, so…

Luckily, the Barack Obama impersonator finally referenced his termination in an Instagram post on Wednesday alongside Taran and Vanessa Bayer… but is he subtly placing blame on

A THIRD Saturday Night Live Cast Member Just Got Cut — PLUS 20 Other SNL Stars Who Were Fired!

no title

We guess bad things really do come in threes…

Saturday Night Live viewers were shocked on Tuesday when it was reported that fan-favorites Taran Killam and Jay Pharoah had both been let go from the late night show after six years on the air.

However, it seems as though Lorne Michaels wasn't content with cutting just two of his line-up, because featured player Jon Rudnitsky followed them right out the door later the same day!

But if Jay, Jon, or Taran happen to be your favorite, don't fret — plenty of today's hottest stars were one once fired from the NBC series, too!

Just look at Robert Downey, Jr., Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Sarah Silverman! All three of them had less-than-stellar stints on the show, and they turned out fine.

So who else has been fired from SNL in its 41-season span??

On Monday, it was confirmed that Jay Pharoah and Taran Killam will not be returning to the NBC sketch show for its 42nd season as the twosome will be pursuing "other opportunities". Whoa.

As you surely know, both Jay and Taran have been with SNL for six seasons and have created countless memorable characters. Mr. Pharoah alone has famously impersonated Barack Obama, Jay Z, Dr. Ben Carson, Will Smith, etc. Not to mention, Killam is best known for his impersonations of Matthew McConaughey, Marco Rubio, and more.

If you're baffled as to why Lorne Michaels would dump two of the show's seasoned vets, you're totally not alone! In fact, not long after the departure news hit the media, Taran opened up to Uproxx about his shocking exit. He dished:
