This week, Anderson Cooper publicly declared Cher's awesomeness, one of the groups that auditioned for America's Got Talent featured a human jump rope, and Discovery Digital showcased a man juggling chainsaws in slow motion. Funny or Die premiered the newest installment of Eliza Coupe's web series "Frenemies," and New York's Upright Citizens Brigade comedy troupe (featuring the likes of Amy Poehler and Horatio Sanz) offered fans a rare glimpse behind the scenes of their improv series Asssscat. Check out those clips and more in our weekly roundup of the best online videos:
Ben Affleck, Bill Hader
While not the most memorable episode of the season, the Saturday Night Live finale was important for a number of reasons. Not only did it mark the last episode with Bill Hader, but if reports are true, it was the last with Fred Armisen and Jason Sudeikis as well. The finale also marked host Ben Affleck's induction into The Five Timer's Club, which wasn't nearly as glamorous as the Argo director expected.

Jay Leno will leave The Tonight Show (again) next spring. What's he doing after that? More stand-up, he tells The New York Times, but no TV — for now. "I've done this job for a long time and I really enjoy it," he tells the paper. "Would I do it again? Believe me, the phone's not ringing off the hook. It will be nice if people seem interested.

Even if no one is calling right now (doubtful), it's hard to believe that Leno — who hasn't hinted at retirement since the Conan O'Brien Tonight Show succession plan was announced in 2004 — will be off our screens for too long. So what are his options? We weigh the possibilities...
