Last night on NBC’s Saturday Night Live, actor Chris Hemsworth was the host of the episode, and we all knew at some point SNL would spoof the mega-hot soap opera Empire, and last night they did!

In a satirical send-up promo, Keenan Thompson took on the role of Terrence Howard’s Lucious Lyon, while Sasheer Zamata took on Cookie Lyon, played by Taraji B. Henson. Other Empire notables spoofed included: Jamal (Jay Pharoah), Hakeem (Michael Che), and Porsha (Leslie Jones).

However in this promo, Fox’s Empire decides to even broaden their “appeal” by adding a white male character named Chip played by Hemsworth, and plunking him right into the mix with the over-the-top gang from the hip-hop-world. Chip soon learns it’s not easy working alongside this group!

Watch what happens after the jump!  Let us know what you thought of the segment  … thumbs up, or thumbs down?

Chris Hemsworth “joins the cast”?

Kind of misleading.

Hilarious! So funny how the parody wasn’t far from the actual characterizations which aren’t meant to be comedic..the show for the most part is great but taken out of context like this it’s spot on and ripe for comedy.

I love EMPIRE on FOX, however, the SNL was not impressive. Hopefully, in the future SNL will get a handle on how to effectively write a funny scene… to parody Empire. It just wasn’t there for me. Though, I did like the SNL cast members who were cast in the respected roles. Try again SNL.

I didn’t think it was funny, but Keenan was on point with the Terrance Howard impersonation, right down to the quivering voice.

EMPIRE Season Six Premiere: Andre Is In For A Shocker

When Fox’s music biz soap opera, Empire returns for its sixth and final season (kicking off this Tuesday, September 24th, 9/8c) the opener features cancer survivor, Andre Lyon (Trai Byers) in charge of the Lyon dynasty – with his dad, Luscious completely MIA.

But when addressing the company staff on some changes within the structure of the organization and his plans, he is stunned when none other than Tracy (Amanda Detmer), that’s previously referred to and known as “White Tracy’” (due to her crack addiction), shows up with a soapy bombshell during the meeting.

The mother of Andre’s deceased half-brother, Jeff Kingsley saunters in and announces, “I’m Empire’s newest co-owner!”   And with that, season six begins its arc with a battle for control that will be front and center.

Tracy wants payback and has an ax to grind.  In the season 5 finale, she told the Lyon clan that her decision to donate her son’s heart to save Andre would come with strings attached, but did anyone expect she would go this far?  Yup!  Watch the teaser below for Tuesday’s night’s first episode of the  final season.

Meanwhile, the season six key art featuring series stars: Taraji P Henson (Cookie) and Terrence Howard  (Luscious) in the same position as the famous scene in the motion picture Titanic has with it the saying “Rule to the end”.   Who will be left standing when the series comes to its exciting and emotional conclusion?

Collier also noted that a big send-off is planned for the series as its heads to its final episodes.  In addition, the CEO officially revealed after all the speculation that Jussie Smollett (Ex-Jamal Lyon), would not be returning to Empire for its final season.

Charlie noted, “There’s no plan for Jussie to return.”  Smollett got in trouble with the law in Chicago back in January, over an alleged hate crime, the actor claimed was perpetrated on him, when later he was charged for setting the whole thing up himself, and later those charges later dropped,   But Jussie’s problems with the Windy City are continuing hot and heavy this week.

Finally, soap opera favorite, Vivica A. Fox (Generations, DAYS) has been upped to series regular in her role as Candace.  As Empire viewers know, Candace is the older sister to Cookie Lyon, played by Taraji P. Henson.
