While Charlize Theron was hosting SNL Saturday, ostensibly making it her night, the evening really belonged to someone else: Barbara Walters, who finally got revenge on Saturday Night Live after years of poking fun at her.
Seth Rogen returned to Saturday Night Live for his third hosting gig this weekend – his first in almost five years. Was the third time the charm for the hirsute Canadian? Watch the clips below and decide for yourself!
Louis C.K.'s Saturday Night Live hosting stint played to his strengths while also allowing the comic to branch out.
C.K. was most at home during the opening monologue, which he treated as a block of stand-up time: He discussed the difference between "first-world hunger" and "third-world hunger," ("If you've eaten today, you're not hungry. I'm hungry for a donut but I'm not hungry,") women's suffrage, ("Women got the right to vote in this country in 1920. That means American democracy is 94 years old. There are three guys in my building who are older than American democracy,") and – as usual – parenting. ("There is no more joyful experience in a parent's life than when a child's play is over.")
It was a weekend's worth of surprises, from the on-again, off-again couple who was spotted packing on the P.D.A. to the newlyweds who packed up their bags to elope.
Now that we've officially sprung ahead, here's what you missed:
5. Lena Dunham Strips Down for SNLIt's no Brooklyn warehouse party, but we have a feeling Hannah Horvath would approve of Dunham's Saturday night all the same. The Girls star hosted this weekend's edition of Saturday Night Live, which involved no shortage of nudity. Like we said – Hannah would be proud.
Here are the highlights.
Saturday Night Live gained a new viewer for its first show back after the Olympics – Seth Meyers.
"I ended up staying up and watching all of SNL," the former head writer and host of Weekend Update told PEOPLE at Equinox during the annual Cycle for Survival event on Sunday morning.
"I loved it. It was really fun for me to have that excitement that a viewer has of not knowing what's coming up next. I felt a lot like a regular person, but a proud regular person."
Meyers, 40, has big shoes to fill with his new gig hosting Late Night, but says he isn't pondering the precedent his predecessors have set.
She's a New York native – and she's about to make her "live from New York" debut.
Lena Dunham will host Saturday Night Live for the first time on March 8, Variety reports.
"Thank you for the SNL love," Dunham Tweeted Tuesday. "Can't wait to debut my character 'girl who googled serial killers all night & has lots to say!' "
No word yet on whether Dunham, 27, will lampoon Girls on the long-running sketch-comedy program. But if she does, it wouldn't be the first time SNL has poked fun at Dunham's hit HBO show, which follows the lives of four young New York women trying to find their place in the world.
Authorities say former Saturday Night Live star Chris Kattan has been arrested on suspicion of drunken driving after his Mercedes struck a Department of Transportation vehicle on a Southern California freeway.
