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:

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:

It was Melissa McCarthy's third time hosting SNL, but the focus of the night wasn't on the comedian's welcome return. Saturday also markedSeth Meyers' last episode after more than a decade on the series.

While the episode featured some real duds (we're looking at you, "Art Exhibit"), Meyers' goodbye and McCarthy's delightful absurdity made it an episode worth watching. Check out the best sketches below.

Lorne Michaels took the first step in fixing Saturday Night Live's diversity problem by hiringSasheer Zamata earlier this week, making the Upright Citizens Brigade alum the first black female cast member on the series since Maya Rudolph left in 2007. Zamata will face extra pressure, thanks to the ongoing controversy surrounding SNL's whitewashed cast, but new co-star Bobby Moynihan has full faith she'll be able to handle it with ease.

"I've seen her perform at UCB and I've never seen a more beautiful, confident person onstage than Sasheer," Moynihan tells TVGuide.com. "I think we're very, very lucky to get her."

After nearly 40 years on the air and countless cast changes — including the losses of Kristen Wiig, Andy Samberg, Bill Hader, Jason Sudeikis, Fred Armisen and (soon) Seth Meyers in the last two seasons alone — Saturday Night Live routinely ranks as one of the Peacock Network's highest-rated series in the advertiser-coveted 18-to-49 age demographic (just below The Voice, The Blacklist and Chicago Fire).
