Jimmy Fallon made a triumphant and hilarious return to SNL last night with Michael Buble serving as musical guest. Also returning were alums Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Chris Kattan, Tracy Morgan, Rachel Dratch and Horatio Sanz. They went all out, and I loved every minute of it. We got an updated version of "I Wish It Was Christmas Today," Tracy's dead-pan bopping always kills me.
Michael performed twice, making me feel all warm and fuzzy with his renditions of "A Holly, Jolly Christmas" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas." (DivaJulia doesn't care for The Buble--like, at all, FYI.)
He even got in on the fun appearing in skit dueting with the likes of Justin Bieber (Jimmy) and Kanye West (Jay Pharoah).
Unfortunately there wasn't another "Hamm & Buble" skit, and no Justin Timberlake for another "Barry Gibb's Talk Show," although they kind of teased it. (Damn them!)
Other highlights were Amy, Tina and Jimmy joining Seth Meyers during "Weekend Update" for a joke off, and the last skit which featured Taran Killam as Tim Tebow talking with Jesus, played by Jason Sudeikis.
Seriously, the whole damn show was superb and I'm glad they saved Fallon for the last host of the first half of the season.
