Anthony David Miles, Tom Shillue, Jimmy Fallon, Chris Tartaro
This week, Jimmy Fallon made his debut as host of The Tonight Show, and welcomed a host of celebrity guests — the most entertaining of which was Kristen Wiig, who did her entire interview in character as One Direction's Harry Styles. With NBC devoting its prime time programming to Olympics coverage, Parks and Recreation launched its online spin-off The Hapley Group, and Parenthood's companion web series incorporated the show's long-awaited crossover with Friday Night Lights. Also bowing this week were Marlon Wayans' new comedy channel, and Chipotle's original web series Farmed and Dangerous. Check out those clips and more in our weekly roundup of the best online videos:

For most, the Bill Brasky sketch on the Paul Rudd-fronted SaturdayNight Live was a highlight — but not Tim Meadows.
The former SNL cast memeber, who had previously appeared in four Brasky sketches, took to Facebook to express his displeasure at not being invited to participate.
"I guess it just dawned on me that I mean NOTHING to them...I'm just being overly sensitive. It doesn't matter in the long run. I'm grateful for what they did for me. But everyone in a while as a fan and a alumni, it stings a little to not even be considered as someone they would like to come back around," Meadows wrote.
Paul Rudd, One Direction
Host Paul Rudd and musical act One Direction weren't the only special guests on Saturday Night Live this week. Alums Fred Armisen and Kristen Wiig returned to the show, and Rudd's Anchorman 2 castmates Will Ferrell (also an SNL vet), Steve Carell and David Koechner also made cameos to sing "Afternoon Delight" with One Direction during Rudd's opening monologue. The show also didn't miss the opportunity to skewer NBC's live Sound of Music musical, which aired Thursday. Check out some of the highlights below:

Paul Rudd will host the show for the third time on Dec. 7, two weeks before Anchorman 2's release. He'll be joined by musical guest One Direction, coming back for their second stint as musical guest.
Kenan Thompson, Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga pulled double duty as both host and musical guest on Saturday Night Live and she didn't hesitate to poke a little fun at herself. The night's sketches included a glimpse into the future, with a washed-up Gaga reminiscing about her glory days in her Upper West Side apartment, where she's forced to call upon her superintendent to keep her company. On the musical side, Gaga was joined by special guest R. Kelly for her single "Do What U Want."Check out highlights from the episode below:
