Seth Rogan returned to host Saturday Night Live for the third time last night, and he was joined by his pals James Franco, Zooey Deschanel and Taylor Swift, all of whom dropped in on his opening monologue. Franco didn't seem to have any problem making light of the Instagram controversy he was involved in earlier this month that had to do with an underaged tourist he may have been trying to meet up with.

Meanwhile, I was kind of hoping Swift's appearance might be a hint that she'd duet with musical guest Ed Sheeran later on during the show. That didn't happen, though Sheeran did put two great performances. First, let's look at Rogen's highlights. Beyond the monologue, he appeared in a Shallon sketch, which had Rogen playing a police officer and D.A.R.E. representative. In typical Shallon fashion, she turns his whole presentation upside down.



Among the weirder sketches, "Steakhouse" had Rogen playing the husband of a woman with two broken arms.



Next up, watch Cecily Strong lose it over bad dog food...



Finally, there's' the Monster Pals sketch, which I found bizarrely funny.



I know it doesn't really matter but I want to know if Franco was really in that monster suit when they filmed the first part of the sketch.

And then there was Ed Sheeran, who did his first televised live performance of "Sing" during the SNL episode:
