This week, Kristen Wiig returned to host SNL for the first time. Wiig had only left the show one season ago so we didn't have much time to forget about her on the show. Rob Cesternino and SNL expert, Rich Tackenberg, discuss what worked and what did not work on the latest edition of the SNL Podcast. The general consensus between Rob and Rich is that many of the retread sketches that Kristen Wiig made famous during her time on SNL felt a little tired to see them once again. As predicted last week, We saw another installment of "The Californians" with Wiig reprising her role in the sketch. Kristen Wiig appeared in another dance number on The Lawrence Welk show which also did not resonate with Rob and Rich. However, both Rob and Rich thought this was a strong outing for Wiig as the Target Lady after weekend update. Other than the returning sketches, Rob and Rich did not care for the cold open and thought that the visitors to the update desk were not great in Anthony Crispino and Garth and Kat. Rich liked the Mother's Day commercial for 1-800-flowers and both Rob and Rich thought the sketches at the end of the show were the best sketches of the night. Additionally, Rob and Rich discuss the news that Seth Meyers is going to replace Jimmy Fallon on Late Night. The guys also make predictions on what could be Jason Sudeikis' last show next week.

After last night's gut-wrenching episode, Rob welcomes Brenda Lowe, who got voted out on Survivor. In Brenda's exit interview, Rob asks her about her feeling about last night's betrayal, the strategy in the game and the differences between this Brenda and the Brenda from Survivor Nicaragua. Rob starts out by asking Brenda about her feeling about the betrayal by Dawn last night and if it hurt any less last night than when it actually happened? Rob brings up the twist on the reward challenge and asks Brenda if she thought it was fair that she was put in the position of having to choose who got to spend time with their loved ones. Going back to when Brenda saved Dawn's retainer from the water, is Brenda sorry that she did that for Dawn? Will Brenda help Dawn find her retainer if she loses it again? In the immunity challenge, Brenda decided to let Dawn win immunity. Was that a mistake to not try and go for immunity at final 6 or does Brenda still think that was a good decision.Rob is interested in knowing whether Brenda ever thought to target Cochran in the game since it seems like nobody is ever coming after him. When Brenda's Dad came to visit, Brenda remarked that her dad told her to remember to "be humble" during the game. How much did that change the way she played on Survivor Caramoan from the Brenda we saw in Survivor Nicaragua. Brenda looked to have a knee injury during most of the game. Rob asked about what happened to Brenda's knee and if it was finally starting to feel better during the game. Finally, Rob asks Brenda if there is anything she wants to let her fans know after watching last night's show.
