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.
Third time's a charm?
Jonah Hill returned to Saturday Night Live this weekend to host the show for the third time, and his opening monologue featured a hilarious cameo from his Wolf of Wall Street co-star (and, apparently, mentor) Leonardo DiCaprio.
Other highlights from the episode included a couple of sketches about the upcoming Winter Olympics in Sochi, and the much-welcomed return of Vanessa Bayer and Cecily Strong's former porn stars-turned-infomercial representatives. Check out some of the night's best segments below:
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:
Amy Poehler may have joked that she was so relaxed days before hosting the Golden Globes because she was "heavily medicated," but the Saturday Night Live alum was very enthusiastic while discussing the show's recent hires at the Television Critics Association winter press tour on Friday.
Africa-American comedienne Sasheer Zamata, who is a performer at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater co-founded by Poehler, was added as a castmember earlier this week. Additionally, LaKendra Tookes and Leslie Jones joined the NBC sketch comedy show as writers.

In addition to adding Sasheer Zamata to its cast, Saturday Night Live has hired two new black female writers. According to The Hollywood Reporter, LaKendra Tookes and Leslie Jones will start work on the sketch show on Monday.
Both comedians were discovered during the recent auditions Lorne Michaels held in response to criticism of the show's lack of diversity.
