Saturday Night Live: Colin Jost Makes His "Weekend Update" Debut

Colin Jost

Saturday Night Live has been on hiatus for a month... and this is the best they could come up with?

The episode that marked the debut of Seth Meyers' replacement Colin Jost at the "Weekend Update" desk was disappointingly low on laughs, featuring one-joke sketches that went on too long (see: Aidy Bryant's hefty Tinkerbell stand-in "Tonkerbell"). Even Kate McKinnon's typically hilarious Ellen impersonation was a bit lackluster. As far as "Weekend Update," there are of course going to be some growing pains in that department but... we miss Seth already.

Drake

Saturday Night Live welcomed Drake this weekend as host and musical guest on its first offering of 2014 and also gave new cast member Sasheer Zamata a chance to shine — even though the episode certainly wasn't one of the better installments from this season.

Despite his recent musical success, the Degrassi alum proved he's still got more than a few acting chops to show off, gamely doing impressions of everyone from Lil' Wayne to a dorky dad at a slumber party. Check out some of the highlights from the episode below:

Saturday Night Live: How Did Josh Hutcherson Do as Host?

Josh Hutcherson, Vanessa Bayer

Catching Fire may be igniting the box office, but unfortunately Josh Hutcherson failed to light even a spark on Saturday Night Live this weekend. Perhaps the writers checked out early for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, but whatever the reason, this weekend's episode can be filed under "dud." The show went for the bizarre this week, and some sketches worked (Vanessa Bayer dressed as a turkey), while others flopped (Beck Bennett as an office manager who has the body and mannerisms of a baby). Check out some of the better ones below:
