The San Francisco Giants won the World Series Sunday night, completing a four-game sweep of the Detroit Tigers and capturing the title for the second time in three years.

The debate overall generated 6.5 million tweets, according to official Twitter statistics — the lowest number of all three debates. The "horses and bayonets" comment alone sparked more than 105,000 tweets and also immediately spawned a parody account, @horsesbayonette.

Nobody forgets their first time, and that sentiment wasn't lost on singer Bruno Mars, who hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time after performing on the show two years ago. In his musically inclined monologue, Mars first crooned about his nerves and wondered whether he had bitten off more than he could chew and if he could be like fan favorite double threat Justin Timberlake. However, Mars got a sudden burst of confidence — at the expense of Kenan Thompson. But, seriously folks, please be...
