Saturday Night Live hears the criticism. And it's finally doing something about it.

Following the exodus of Bill Hader, Jason Sudeikis, Kristen Wiig and Fred Armisen following last season, the long-running sketch comedy hired six new cast members, all of whom have something in common:

They're white.

This led to a number of diversity complaints, considering the show actually employees a grand total of zero African-American performers, something it mocked when Kerry Washington (Scandal) hosted in November.

Saturday Night Live, which always has its finger on the pulse of pop culture and current events, has the cure for Barack Obama's recent political depression.

Paxil: Second Term Strength.

With the health care woes seemingly worsening by the day, more than a few people might sign up for this drug ... provided it has a website that works.

Here's Jay Pharoah in the SNL spoof of an anti-depressant for Obama:

The hook of Lady Gaga's new song is “Do what you want with my body” and it’s fair to say R. Kelly took that message to heart this weekend on the SNL stage.

Performing their hit “Do What U Want” on Saturday Night Live, the two singers got down and dirty and left little to the imagination, live from New York ...

Perhaps given the two people involved - Gaga always goes hard on stage, and R. is R. - perhaps we could have predicted the two singers dry humping.

Still, you never quite believe such things until you lay eyes on them.

At first, Gaga's risque plunging neckline and glittery jumpsuit felt almost run-of-the-mill by Mother Monster standards, but then Kelly took the stage.

As is often the case with Kelly, the duet took on a much more sexual vibe. Gaga kneeled down in front of him a position that suggested oral sex.

Saturday Night Live took aim at Kim Kardashian and Kanye West this weekend.

In a skit titled "Waking Up with Kimye," the show made fun of Kanye's claim that he's a genius, along with his belief that Kardashian actually possesses talent of any kind, let alone groundbreaking talent that ought to be admired in any way, shape or form.

We were also treated to a performance of triangles by The Kardashian 11, segments titled "Kim Wore It Better" and "What Kim Made" and Lady Gaga as an Apple store employee.

Hilarious stuff all around. Watch now:

Whether it makes any difference or not is an open question, but many people feel Eminem lip-synced his performance on Saturday Night Live this weekend.

While the critics generally loved Kerry Washington on SNL, Eminem received mixed reviews after taking the stage to perform his new hit single "Berzerk."

No one's likening the "Rap God" to Milli Vanilli, who couldn't sing in the studio either, or to Britney Spears (you gotta hear her actual vocals), but still.

Take a look below and see if you think it's as obvious as we think:

At times, when the rapper pulled the mic away from his mouth, it sure sounded and looked like the vocals continued at full volume. Even so ... does it matter?

People's view of lip-syncing seems to vary on a case-by-case basis.

Some stars get torn apart for it, others don't. If it's the Super Bowl, people TWEAK. Other times, less so. Similarly, some mask it better than others.

You tell us: Was Eminem lip-syncing on SNL, and does it matter?

She's playing everyone's favorite President-loving political fixer on Scandal season 3 but Kerry Washington hosted Saturday Night Live and demonstrated that she can wear more than just a White Hat. 

Washington is the 9th Black woman to host the show in its entire 38 year run, and of the 137 actors to grace the stage as cast members, only 4 of them have been African-American.

Throughout the evening, Kerry helped SNL make fun of themselves for their recent diversity issues, chiefly by pointing out that there isn't really much diversity on the show at all.

They jumped right into their self-mockery with the cold open, featuring Kerry Washington as both Michelle Obama and Oprah.

Washington also took to song and dance with a spoof of "What Does The Fox Say?" alongside Jay Pharoah. Check out "What Does My Girl Say?" and two more videos from the night after the jump.

Saturday Night Live is about to get very scandalous, in more ways than one.

NBC has announced that Kerry Washington, who is currently starring as Olivia Pope on Scandal Season 3, will host the November 2nd edition of this sketch series.

Serving as the musical guest on this same installment? The Rap God himself, Eminem, who is under some fire at the moment for lyrics in his latest single that many see as being offensive to gays.

SNL has already aired three episodes this season, with Tina Fey opening as host and being followed by Miley Cyrus and Bruce Willis.

Edward Norton (and Janelle Monáe) are on tap for October 26th, while the following Saturday will mark Washington's first hosting gig and Eminem's sixth turn as SNL performer.

Miley Cyrus should do more hosting and less mocking of the mentally ill.

The 20-year old artist took a break last night from feuding with Sinead O'Connor to take to the Saturday Night Live stage as emcee and musical guess... and she was pretty darn funny.

FIRST, Miley mocked the Apocalyptic reaction to her 2013 VMA performance, appearing opposite Vanessa Bayer as an old version of... Miley Cyrus:

THEN, it was opening monologue time, as Cyrus said she would not be Twerking or apologizing, except to one small sect of individuals: “If I owe anybody an apology, it’s the people who make the bottom half of shirts.”

Miley Cyrus is aghast at the behavior of... Miley Cyrus.

In a series of pretty funny promos alongside Taran Killam, the artist makes fun of her racy VMA performance, agreeing that her clothing was way over-the-top and crying:  "It was too much! Don't forget about the children!"

She also says she sticks her tongue out so often because it's how she smells, while encouraging Killam to check Google for her latest activities.

Miley will be serving as host and musical guest this Saturday night and don't lie: whatever you think of her, you'll be tuning in to see Cyrus does next. Check out the commercials now:

Cyrus will release her new album on October 8, but you need not wait that long to listen to snippets from every song on "Bangerz."

Tina Fey returned to Saturday Night Live last night for its season opener, and to the surprise of no one, stole the show at her old NBC stomping grounds.

"How am I going to demand the best table at subway if I don't have a TV show?" Fey deadpanned of her SNL encore during a classic opening monologue.

In addition to poking fun at the Tina Fey nipple slip from the Emmys, the opening routine also channeled Miley Cyrus Twerking and much more. Watch:

On an episode that featured an Aaron Paul cameo and six new cast members, the star of the show was still Fey, who was a fixture on SNL for nine years.

The comedienne took on the HBO show Girls, joining the core four as Blerta, the girl from Albania with a rubber hand and OCD (Old Cow Disease):
