HBO's specials are always great so this one looks to be within that parameter. Amy Schumer: Live at the Apollo premieres on HBO on October 17th at 10 PM.

Chris Rock & Bobby Moynihan Hit the Streets in these SNL Promos

I'm just going to come out and say it. This week's episode of SNL is going to be the best one this season. There's nothing better than when a real comedian comes by the studio. It's even better when a musical icon like Prince is there to do an extended set. I expect SNL to embrace the full weirdness that will happen on Saturday. Check out these promos and listen to these women scream for the man that once sang "Purple Rain." Also, Bobby Moynihan sure does look super nervous for some reason.
