SNL: Chris Rock Mocks ISIS, Takes on NYC’s Freedom Tower

Chris Rock made his return to Saturday Night Live this weekend to host for the first time since 1996, and in turn offered up some good laughs before ultimately settling in for a subpar episode.

Top Videos: 50 Cent's Pathetic First Pitch, Will Ferrell and Chad Smith's Drum-Off

This week, Will Ferrell and his doppelganger, Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, had a drum-off on The Tonight Show, and Steve Buscemi launched his new web series, "Park Bench with Steve Buscemi." A paralyzed baby goat learned to walk with the help of a cart, and the contestants from The Bachelorette tried to impress Andi with a risque Magic Mike inspired dance. Also, actor David Krumholtz unveiled a new website, on which he delivers local weather reports in character as Jewish grandmother Gigi — who can probably toss a baseball better than 50 Cent, who threw out possibly the most pathetic first pitch in MLB history. Check out those clips and more in our weekly roundup of the best online videos:
