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:
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
Live from New York, it's...NBC's hottest show? 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).

Alec Baldwin, Ed Norton, Miley Cyrus
It was Edward Norton's first time hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend, but he got some helpful advice right at the start from a couple of veterans.
Alec Baldwin and Miley Cyrus made appearances during Norton's opening monologue, with 16-time host Baldwin offering Norton some tips — and Baldwin deadpanning that his turn in American History X was "hilarious." Cyrus basically promoted her upcoming tour and twerked later on in the episode (sigh).
Miley Cyrus did plenty of singing on Saturday Night Live this week, but thankfully left the twerking at home for the most part. Acting as both host and musical guest, Cyrus skewered the government shutdown in one sketch and parodied her infamous performance at the MTV Video Music Awards in another. She also performed her single "Wrecking Ball" (with clothes on) and an acoustic version of "We Can't Stop." Check out highlights from SNL below. How do you think Cyrus did as host?
Taran Killam, Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus returns to Saturday Night Live this weekend as the host and musical guest — and she's already demonstrating that she's not above making fun of herself.
Alexi Ashe and Seth Meyers
Weekend update: Seth Meyers married his longtime girlfriend, Alexi Ashe, on Sunday, People reports.
Saturday Night Live will be down three of its biggest stars when it returns this fall, but that hasn't dampened Seth Meyers' spirits about returning to the "Weekend Update" anchor desk...

Justin Bieber and Jason Sudeikis
Saturday Night Live was all Justin Bieber all the time last night, as the teen heartthrob acted as both the host and the musical guest. How did he do? Let's check out some of the highlights:
