Last night was full of nostalgia for SNL fans. During his monolgue, Jimmy Fallon, who was a cast member for six years, revealed it felt like he was coming home. Raising the holiday spirit and helping the comedian-turned-late-night-host bring back some classic sketches was Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Rachel Dratch, Horatio Sans, Chris Kattan, and Tracy Morgan.
It wouldn’t be Fallon on SNL without a Sully and Denise sketch. They’re older but still keeping it classy as they try and crash the Shawsheen Vocational Technical high school dance with a giant plastic bag of Franzia wine. Poehler stops by to explain what really happened during the months she was out with mono during school.
The best sketch in my opinion was Michel Buble’s Christmas duets album, which gave Fallon the opportunity to show off his hilarious impressions of Sting, Justin Bieber, and Russell Brand. Just wait till you see what they have playing Lady Gaga.
Seth Meyers, Poehler, Fallon and Tina Fey returned to their spots at the news desk for a Weekend Update Joke-Off to see who could come up with the best punchline for a strip clubs holiday toy drive.
A thin Horatio Sans, Chris Kattan and Tracy Morgan stopped by for what seemed like a filler sketch. Kattan and Morgan were underutilized but it was good to see everyone together again.
And being that "Tebowing" has been all over the Internet this week, the show would not be complete without a sketch where Jesus drops by the Denver Bronco’s locker room to tell the quarterback to tone it down a bit.
