Even with six newbies taking over the Saturday Night Live studio, it was the familiar face who ultimately stole the show.

Tina Fey's return to her NBC stomping grounds to kick off the sketch comedy's 39th season brought the laughs, some Miley Cyrus-worthy moves and at least a hoagie's worth of street credit at the comedian's favorite sandwich chain.

"How am I going to demand the best table at Subway if I don't have a TV show?" Fey deadpanned of her small-screen encore during her opening monologue (watch below), which also parodied her Emmys night wardrobe malfunction and the cast additions' knee-slappin' booty-shaking.





The LOLs continued for Fey, who was a regular-turned-head writer on SNL for nine years:
