Benedict Cumberbatch may make for a Strange SNL host this weekend, but as everyone knows, next week might be the most in need of some levity. Thankfully, Dave Chappelle will answer that call in a rare TV appearance, hosting the followup outing with an equally exciting musical guest.

Tracy Morgan’s 2014 accident wrought much more immediate concerns than his FXX TV deal, but with the revered SNL alum and 30 Rock star officially back in rotation, Morgan is returning to past projects. TBS has officially snagged Morgan’s full series commitment with Jordan Peele for a new half-hour comedy.
It’s a rare condition in this day and age, to read any bad news when it comes to Luke Cage. We wouldn’t dare break that streak, either, as the minds behind that Avengers/Full House parody have now brought us a mashup of Luke Cage with Family Matters, and it’s eerily perfect.
From a tough detective to a traitorous councilwoman, these were the 'Luke Cage' characters that had us glued to the screen.
The dust is still settling on whether Luke Cage marks the most Power-ful of Netflix’s Defender series, but certainly working in its favor is the rich complement of musicians, some of whom even contribute to the soundtrack. Showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker apparently even paid tribute to Prince in an early episode, hoping the legendary musician would cameo.
When Nate Parker’s The Birth of a Nation debuted at the Sundance Film Festival last January, it got a standing ovation before its premiere. People were excited to see this movie. Nine months later, the reaction to its arrival in theaters is a little bit different.
Back to the Future Part II imagined a future of magical technology. Home energy reactors. Flying cars. Pizza rehydrators. Fax machines in people’s bathrooms. None of these things have come true. But all anyone really seems to care about are Marty McFly’s goddamn self-lacing sneakers.
Now that everyone has had a chance to binge through Luke Cage, there’s no overlooking the series’ impressive soundtrack. The icing on the cake saw an original “Bulletproof Love” rap performed by Method Man himself in-series, which Marvel has now made available online.
Luke Cage will officially make his mark on Netflix in just a few hours, but believe it or not, certain crazies out there don’t have the subscription to partake. So it is, that Luke Cage can entice us even further with its shimmering, melodic title sequence, following in the footsteps of Daredevil and Jessica Jones.
The Philly funnyman raked in a whopping $87.5 million between June 2015 and June 2016.
