Jonah Hill and Leonardo DiCaprio
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:
It's quite a week for those who enjoy rugged armchair escapism of the historical epic variety. First came the three nights of Discovery's enjoyable gold-rush melodrama Klondike (repeated in its entirety on Saturday, starting at 9:30 am/8:30c), during which Jack London (played by Johnny Simmons) is heard rhapsodizing, "What you're looking at here is a walking, talking novel," as he surveys the squalor and violent desperation teeming throughout Dawson City, the miniseries' Yukon frontier setting.

The new Starz series Black Sails got an early premiere online, while Frozen got unnecessarily censored. Jennifer Lawrence flipped out on the red carpet at the SAG Awards when an interviewer dropped a major Homeland spoiler on her, and Ellen DeGeneres helped Seth Meyers practice his celebrity interviewing skills before he takes over Late Night next month. Check out those clips and more in our weekly roundup of the best online videos:
Seth Meyers is still working out the kinks for when he takes over Late Night, but one thing he has for certain is his first guest.
Meyers, who takes the stage on Feb. 24 at 12:35 a.m./11:35c, told reporters at the Television Critics Association winter previews on Sundaythe first person to sit on his couch will be Amy Poehler. "She's basically Bono's common-law wife now," he joked, referring to her epic Golden Globes makeout with the singer.
Jimmy Fallon's first Tonight Show guests will be Will Smith and U2, he announced Sunday at NBC's Television Critics Association winter previews.
U2's appearance ...
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:
