We know you were busy rocking around the Christmas tree (read: picking up last-minute presents) this weekend. So when you're done with that candy cane, here's what you missed:
5. All We Want for Christmas Is …... Mariah Carey's festive (and very, very sexy) red robe! Hey, the weather outside may be frightful, but that didn't stop the singer from showing off what she's been hiding under her winter coat on Instagram.
See her red-hot snapshot.

This weekend's edition of Saturday Night Live was the early Christmas gift you didn't know you wanted as Jimmy Fallon returned to his stomping grounds. And in the spirit of the season, he happily shared the spotlight, namely with musical guest Justin Timberlake, plus a slew of A-list surprises, including Paul McCartney, Madonna and Barry Gibb.

John Goodman hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend – and he dressed up as Dog the Bounty Hunter and attempted to squeeze into a pair of jeggings.

Saturday Night Live plans to add one or two black female performers to its cast as soon as January.
A representative for the NBC sketch-comedy show on Thursday confirmed reports it's answering complaints about its lack of diversity by staging showcases to choose at least one black female cast member and to hire her within weeks.
In recent weeks, the show has seen two-dozen candidates in Los Angeles, Chicago and New York.
The New York Times reported that a special audition for seven or eight finalists will be held Monday on the SNL stage in Manhattan.
It's "100 percent good for the show to have an African-American woman" in its ranks, executive producer Lorne Michaels told The Times.

Josh Hutcherson hosted Saturday Night Live, and while comparisons to Lady Gaga's stint last week are inevitable, we think Hutcherson acquitted himself nicely, even if he was mostly relegated to straight-man roles against some of the regular cast members.
Here's Hutcherson's monologue – which saw him poke fun at his Hunger Games character – and some of the other highlights from last night.
