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:

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
