Saturday Night Live Alumni Kristen Wiig has been absent and trust me, it seems like it’s been forever. As a real SNL Fan, her absence has been felt! The Funnywoman returned last night for her first time ever hosting and Friends like Jonah Hill, Paul Rudd and a v. pregnant Maya Rudolph even came out to show their support at the NBC Studios in New York City.
Opening the Show with a rendition of The Pointer Sisters‘ I’m So Excited, poking fun at how everything’s changed at the Studio in just eleven months, Wiig gave the Episode some much-needed connection to seasons past, with so many new faces on the Show this Season. Although most of last night’s Show was comprised of Sketches which brought back some of her best Characters throughout the years, the highlights were definitely the Video Sketches.
With it being Mother’s Day, Wiig paid tribute to the occasion and particularly good was a 1-800-Flowers Parody Sketch pairing her with recent addition Kate McKinnon (and worthy Successor!) as her irritating but beloved Mom.
