Which SNL Alums Returned for the Season Finale with Andy Samberg?

Bill Hader, Seth Meyers and Andy Samberg

Saturday marked the Season 39 finale of Saturday Night Live, but you would have never known it from the episode itself, which boasted best sketches that relied mostly on guest stars who were fixtures on previous seasons.

With Andy Samberg hosting, the blasts from the past continued with appearances by Bill Hader, Seth Meyers, Maya Rudolph, Martin Short, Kristen Wiig and Fred Armisen. We were shocked not to see a duet from Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.

Highlights included a hilarious cold open lampooning the Solange-Jay Z-Beyonce Elevator Incident, the return of the Kissing Family, and not one, but two digital shorts. Check out the night's best sketches below:

Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet

Modern Family is heading to Sin City.

After Jay (Ed O'Neill) and Gloria (Sofia Vergara) get some upgraded rooms at a hotel on Wednesday's episode, they decide to bring the entire Pritchett-Dunphy clan with them to Las Vegas — which would be the perfect setting for Mitch (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) and Cam's (Eric Stonestreet) bachelor party, right?! Eh, not so much.

Wednesday TV: Psych Finale, Family Goes to Vegas, Live TV on TV Land

James Roday, Dule Hill

As USA Network's Psych hangs up its pineapple after eight seasons of tomfoolery — or should it be called Shawn-foolery? — mystery takes even more of a back seat to comedy than usual in the series finale (Wednesday, 9/8c), ominously titled "The Breakup." While there is a murder to be solved (frequently referred to as "our last case"), it's a perfunctory distraction at best to Shawn's main concern: how to tell Gus that their bromantic partnership may in fact be over. read more

Josh Charles, Andy Samberg

Unless you've been living under a rock or in a wi-fi dead zone, it's no secret that Josh Charles is newly unemployed after a shocking twist on Sunday's episode of The Good Wife.

However, the Emmy-nominated actor is already being eyed for another potential TV gig on Fox's comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine. "I think we've got to... read more

Saturday Night Live: Girls Star Lena Dunham Gets Naked

Lena Dunham

Girls star Lena Dunham made her Saturday Night Live hosting debut Saturday, but she wasn't the only celebrity guest to stop by. Liam Neeson, Jon Hamm and former cast member Fred Armisen also made cameos in what was overall a mediocre episode.

Louis C.K. to host SNL

Dunham predictably addressed the rampant nudity and graphic sex in Girls, both in her so-so monologue and in a hilarious parody of the Garden of Eden story. Did anyone honestly think Dunham could get through the entire episode without showing some skin? This hilarious trailer for "Girl," a new movie about Adam and Eve, features great impersonations of Dunham's co-stars Adam Driver and Zosia Mamet by Taran Killam and Vanessa Bayer. Take a look:

Thursday TV: The Red Road, Vikings, Portlandia Join TV's Busiest Night

Julianne Nicholson and Martin Henderson

The road of great expectations invariably contains its share of potholes. So it is with SundanceTV's The Red Road (Thursday, 9/8c), a lugubrious six-episode drama that's as overwrought as it is underwhelming, representing a rare misfire for the channel that brought us such outstanding originals as Top of the Lake and Rectify last year.

Minnie Driver, Ellen DeGeneres

This week, kids got together to film their own versions of the Best Picture Oscar nominees, with hilariously adorable results. Also adorable in a non-hilarious way: a paralyzed French bulldog learned to walk with the help of some prosthetic feet.
