Saturday Night Live
We knew this was going to be a big show this week when it was reported that standout cast member, Bill Hader, was going to be leaving the show after this episode. The news continued to come from 30 Rock as rumors leaked that both Fred Armisen and Jason Sudeikis were also going to be leaving the show.
As for the actual episode the show opened with a Keenan Thompson as Al Sharpton discussing the IRS scandal. In the monologue, Ben Affleck discussed being a member of the 5 timers club before rehashing a "controversy" from his Oscar speech with his wife, Jennifer Garner.
The highlight of the show came during the much anticipated appearance of Bill Hader's signature character, Stefon. When Stefon stormed off the stage, what followed was a hilarious look at Stefon's wedding to Anderson Cooper. To see more about all of the guests in attendance for Stefon's wedding, click here.
The last sketch of the night was another sendoff as Fred Armisen reprised his role as Ian Rubbish and played with Hader and Sudeikis. However, in the closing credits only Armisen and Hader were shown prominently, which made Rob wonder if Jason Sudeikis is definitely leaving.
