TV Watch Saturday Night Live
Vanessa Bayer might be known for her hilarious impressions on Saturday Night Live, but before the comedian and former Make-A-Wish kid hit it big, she battled leukemia at just 15 years old.
"Being a sick child is obviously extremely difficult," says Bayer, now 33. "You're in hospitals all the time undergoing treatments, and you're not getting to do all of the things that other kids your age are doing."
No one likes cable companies. Sometimes – though we might be projecting here – not even cable companies. But based on what happened Wednesday night, we now know at least one celebrity who's having a real problem with his cable company.

Who knew comedy was an extreme sport?
During a visit to Late Night with Seth Meyers on Wednesday, Taran Killam shares stories of the worst injuries he's received in his five seasons on Saturday Night Live.

Amy Schumer has a theory about the inherent inequality of women in show business: "I think people hate women."
In a roundtable of comedic actresses assembled for The Hollywood Reporter's latest issue, the Inside Amy Schumer creator and star adds, "I don't think they want to hear a woman talk for too long. A lot of people project their mom yelling a them."
Schumer continues, "My [career] has been about tricking people into listening. I'm not saying all men hate women, but there's such an aggression."
For the magazine's June 5 issue, THR sat down with Schumer, Lena Dunham, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt's Ellie Kemper, Jane the Virgin's Gina Rodriguez, Black-ish's Tracee Ellis Ross and Saturday Night Live's Kate McKinnon to discuss the struggles of being a woman in entertainment and the sexism they've encountered throughout their careers.
