Jimmy Fallon's SNL Return Includes Guest Appearances By Poehler, Fey, And Dratch

Jimmy Fallon returned to Saturday Night Live last night, serving as host for the Christmas-themed episode, with Michael Buble as the musical guest. Along with Fallon, there were also appearances from some of the ghosts of SNL past, including Tina Fey, Amy Pohler, and Rachel Dratch. Check out the videos ahead!

The night kicked off with the cold open, which checked in on Sully and Denise. Theirs is an eternal love, and they’re still just as passionate for one another as they were back when Fallon and Dratch were regulars on the show. You may have noticed that the politically incorrect phrase "you're retarded," which Denise was once fond of saying, never made it into the sketch, however “flame retardant” was sort of used in its place at one point. You’ll find that video below, along with both of Michael Buble’s performance, as well as the excellent moment during “Weekend Update” when Fallon and Tina Fey joined fellow former Weekend Update team Amy Poehler and Seth Meyers for a good old-fashioned joke-off. As much as I look forward to Seth Meyer’s solo commentary each week, it was great to see these old teams back in action and as quippy as ever.

And if celebrity impersonations are your thing, you may enjoy the Today Show spoof or the Buble Duets.

Saturday Night Live airs Saturdays at 11:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
