Saturday Night Live's sketch about Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow - and a snarky Jesus Christ (Jason Sudeikis) - has not been well received by Christian leaders.

In the skit, the Messiah Himself appeared, telling Tebow (Taran Killam) to "take it down a notch" with his religious zealotry ... you know, since He does all the work.

The clip has become an Internet sensation (not unlike, say, Tebowing). It’s also drawn fire from religious commentators, who think it indicates bias against Christians.

Televangelist Pat Robertson in particular called the Saturday Night Live Tim Tebow skit part of a rising tide of “anti-Christian bigotry that is just disgusting.”

He said, “If this had been a Muslim country and they had done that, and had Muhammad doing that stuff, you would have found bodies on the street.”

Possibly a little extreme, but point taken. Robertson said of Tebow, “This man has been placed in a unique position, and I applaud him. God bless him.”

Your thoughts on the Tebow-Jesus sketch?

Daniel Radcliffe is set to make his hosting debut on Saturday Night Live January 14, NBC has announced. Lana Del Rey will serve as musical guest that week.

With the conclusion of the epic Harry Potter franchise, Radcliffe cemented his status as one of the most talented and original performers of his generation.

He's looking forward to more weighty projects in the future, however (see The Woman in Black trailer) and we have no doubt he'll continue to thrive.

Charles Barkley will host SNL January 7.

As you're probably aware, Alec Baldwin was kicked off an American Airlines flight last week when an attendant dared interrupt his intense game of Words With Friends.

How is the 30 Rock star handling this minor PR nightmare? By impersonating an AA pilot on SNL's Weekend Update and issuing a faux apology to himself, of course.

Sounding a little like John Edwards with a hilariously bogus Southern accent, "Captain Steve Rogers" went out of the way to apologize to the actor for removing him.

Not only that, he praised Baldwin as a bright, American hero.

Watch the hilarious "interview" with Seth Meyers below:

Katy Perry hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend.

While not every routine was of the highest quality (her Pippa Middleton impression could use a little work), she more than held her own in a variety of sketches.

In the Digital Short below, the adorable-looking singer and Andy Samberg become best friends for the holidays in a display of festive cheer and camaraderie.

The joy of caring and friendship is so profound for these two that a hobo and a lunatic - Matt Damon and Val Kilmer - are even welcomed into their holiday posse.

Four best friends ... and we all love meth!

Owner of perhaps the world's most famous cleavage, Katy Perry portrayed the owner of the world's most famous backsides last night in Pippa Middleton.

The #1 pop hit maker hosted NBC's Saturday Night Live, playing herself, Christina Aguilera, a Japanese wannabe and Kate Middleton's sister in various sketches.

In a nod to the many Kate Middleton pregnancy rumors of late, the Queen (played by Fred Armisen) demanded Prince William's wife get knocked up ASAP.

Enter the faux Pippa Middleton, who went toe-to-toe with Her Majesty in a ridiculous cockney accent. Give Katy credit for trying if nothing else. Peep it:

Saturday Night Live went political last weekend with a faux Republican debate, seating the candidates - as was the case in the last real debate - in order of poll numbers.

Only bottom-feeder Rick Santorum was banished to a local gay bar instead of the debate table where contenders Herman Cain, Mitt Romney et al., were seated.

Needless to say, that did not go over well with the homophobe.

The cuts to SNL's faux Santorum (played by Andy Samberg) were funny due to his expressions, but more so due to their infrequency. Dude is just irrelevant now.

Andy Samberg as Rick Santorum

The decision to stick Rick in a gay bar of all places no doubt stems from his views on the LGBT community and the fact that he recently got so pissed at Google.

Santorum, in response, feels like he's being singled out for having strong views on "traditional marriage" a.k.a. despising homosexuals and all they stand for.

Really, though, what make the skit was Rick's declining importance. The lack of attention they paid Samberg reflected his 1-3 percent poll average brilliantly.

Santorum's comeback is posted below you care what he has to say, which you likely don't. That's the point. Time to back up the bus and head home, man.

We cannot wait to sample Ben & Jerry's Schweddy Balls.

The ice cream company has come out with a flavor that immortalizes one of the funniest skits in Saturday Night Live history, one you can view HERE.

Schweddy Balls

The flavor features Fair Trade vanilla ice cream with a hint of rum. It is loaded with fudge-covered rum balls and milk chocolate malt balls and it makes Alec Baldwin a very happy man. Says the hilarious actor/star of the skit:

“For a long time, I thought that ‘Here Lies Pete Schweddy’ would end up on my tombstone. Now, thanks to Ben & Jerry’s, the goodness of the Schweddy family recipe won’t go with me to the great beyond.”

Baldwin will return to host the September 24 season premiere of Saturday Night Live.

A set of Schwetty Balls is coming to Saturday Night Live this fall.

Alec Baldwin has been tapped to host the show's 37th season premiere, though no date has been set yet for the episode. He'll be followed by Emmy nominee and Bridesmaids scene-stealer Melissa McCarthy the following week.

This appearance will mark Baldwin's record-setting 16th time as host. He last appeared on the May 2010 finale. The guy is ridiculously hilarious.

SNL producer Lorne Michaels also confirmed to Bill Carter of The New York Times that the entire cast will return for the new season.

When her performances on SNL last night, Lady Gaga almost made her three-way with Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg feel like an afterthought.

The singer emerged from an egg yet again, only this time while donning a black latex pregnancy belly (really), then giving birth on stage (yes, really)!

All in the name of a stirring (for better or worse) rendition of “Born This Way.” She also performed her two latest hits, "Edge of Glory" and "Judas."

That effort was less dramatic, though the clothes were almost as wacky, what with the gold headpiece, bejeweled bodysuit and all. Vintage Gaga.

Here are both of her bizarre, but thoroughly entertaining efforts from the season finale, not surprisingly the NBC stalwart's highest-rated all year:
