What would Thanksgiving be without a visit from our beloved Drunk Uncle? He's just one of the many characters Bobby Moynihan hilariously embodies on Saturday Night Live, which commemorates Turkey Day with a sketch-stuffed special.
Miss Piggy, Lady Gaga, Kermit the Frog
Stuffed with Thanksgiving turkey? Tired of flag football with your family? Fortunately, there are plenty of reasons to stay put on the couch all weekend long. Check out our roundup of all the marathons, specials and football games on tap. All times are Eastern (ET).
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:
Justin Timberlake, Jimmy Fallon
Saturday Night Live is bringing back some familiar faces throughout the month of December.
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.
Jesse Tyler Ferguson
This week, as Toronto mayor Rob Ford continued to careen off the rails, everyone pondered how great it would be if Chris Farley were still alive to mimic Ford on Saturday Night Live. Wes Anderson and Jason Schwartzman teamed up to create a new short film for Prada, while screenwriter Evan Daugherty (Snow White and the Huntsman) put a dark spin on Super Mario Brothers. Also, Jimmy Fallon hosted a game of celebrity charades, and Jesse Tyler Ferguson and George Takei created a gay version of The Bachelor. Check out those clips and more in our weekly roundup of the best online videos:
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:
Thanks to the one-two punch of NCIS and Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Tuesday nights at 8/7c have become pretty crowded. Which is why Raising Hope's new showrunner, Mike Mariano, isn't all that worried about the show's move from Tuesdays to what was once believed to be the death timeslot of Fridays. "I'm thrilled by it because I think the Tuesday-at-8 timeslot is one of the toughest on television," Mariano tells TVGuide.com. "I'm not as intimidated as I would have been in other years going to Fridays. ... But it's also really out of my control. I'm thrilled to be on the air."
After a slightly extended time off the schedule, Raising Hope returns Friday (9/8c, Fox) with two new back-to-back episodes and a slew of impressive guest stars including...
Did Andy Kaufman fake his own death? According to the legendary comedian's brother and a woman claiming to be his daughter, he did.

Maya Rudolph is finally getting the proper spotlight for her talents. The Saturday Night Live vet will headline her own prime-time variety show, Deadline reports.
When Cecily Strong sat in Saturday Night Live's "Weekend Update" anchor chair for the first time this fall, she had only one goal in mind: Don't cry. "I'm a crybaby, so I express every emotion with tears," says the Springfield, Illinois, native. "But they would've been happy tears — I would've been bawling because I was so excited."
You can't blame her for being psyched. In only her second season on SNL, she's been promoted from lowly featured player to heir to the throne coanchor Seth Meyers will vacate when he leaves to host NBC's Late Night early next year. "Cecily's had a meteoric rise, as opposed to my molasses-like one," quips Meyers.
It's almost literally a dream come true for Strong, who...
