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.

Saturday Night Live and host Melissa McCarthy took on some timely issues by poking fun at North Korea leader Kim Jong-un and the recent firing of Rutgers' head basketball coach.

Justin Timberlake returned to Saturday Night Live this week, but he wasn't the only familiar face making a comeback.

Here are some of the best moments from the show:

Guy Fieri was the talk of the town after The New York Times published its scathing review of his new Times Square restaurant.

Live from New York, it's... Thursday night!
In honor of the nonstop flow of mock-worthy material commonly known as election season, Saturday Night Live resurrected its Thursday night half-hour specials. Thursday's episode, the first of three, was high on chuckles but low on guffaws, and the political moments were heavily Romney-focused. Jay Pharoah's newly-minted Barack Obama was nowhere to be seen.
It's official — Abby Elliott will not be returning to Saturday Night Live.
Elliott, the daughter of former SNL cast member Chris Elliott, is leaving the sketch show after four seasons, Splitsider reports. The announcement comes after stars Kristen Wiig and Andy Samberg said their goodbyes on last season's finale.

Scarlett Johansson, making her third appearance as Saturday Night Live host, used her monologue to poke fun at how young celebrities can easily stay out of the limelight: wear underwear, don't do a reality show and don't act surprised if your sex tape comes out.
