This past weekend's 'SNL' with Bill Hader proved the best of the season so far (despite garnering an all-time low in ratings, ouch), but the laughs might get a little dumber toward the end of October. Jim Carrey has been confirmed to return to 'SNL' for a third hosting gig alongside musical guest Iggy Azalea, while this past weekend's show has spit out a new deleted sketch with Bill Hader.

The 'SNL' Jan Hooks Tribute: Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig Present 'Love Is But a Dream'

The unfortunate and untimely death of the great Jan Hooks this past week sent the comedy world into mourning, with countless writers and comics stepping forward to pay tribute to the late 'SNL' star. It could have been easy for this week's new episode to gloss over the passing of one of their own (it is a comedy show, after all), but 'SNL' has always been a slightly class institution -- it remembers those who came before.

'SNL' and Bill Hader Spoof 'Maze Runner,' 'Hunger Games' and More in 'The Group Hopper'

Although 'SNL' previously parodied all the movie adaptations of the most obscure young-adult novels, all past sketches have nothing on 'The Group Hopper.' It's one thing to dress the cast in 'Hunger Games' outfits and make fun of one of the biggest movie franchises in the world. It's another thing altogether to create a fake movie trailer for a fake new franchise and make it seem strangely plausible while eviscerating every movie of this kind out there.

When it was announced that the great Bill Hader would be returning to 'SNL' to host this week's episode, everyone crossed their fingers and hoped for one thing: the glorious return of Stefon. And lo and behold, the comedy gods answered and the greatest character in modern 'Saturday Night Live' graced 'Weekend Update' yet again.

'SNL' Scorecard: The Triumphant Return of Bill Hader (And Anthony Peter Coleman)

After watching Bill Hader host ‘SNL,’ I think there’s a chance that we all undervalued him while he was actually on the show. And I write this knowing that Hader actually was highly valued, but maybe it wasn’t enough. Hader is this generation’s Phil Hartman. It really shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that he makes the perfect host. And it’s evident that ‘SNL’ really hasn’t figured out quite how to replace Hader yet; he fits so effortlessly into this cast. Hader has a way of elevating everything, and that’s why last night we got one of the best ‘SNL’’s in recent memory.

This past weekend's 'SNL' with comedian Sarah Silverman brought with it a few stumbles, but what better way to return to form than with a seasoned alum? Bill Hader will return to grace the 'SNL' stage with his presence this Saturday with musical guest Hozier, the first promos of which see the 'Skeleton Twins' star catching up with Kenan Thompson on all the changes.

This year was the first year in a very long time that we didn't get a new Pixar movie, but that's okay, because 2015 will see two of them -- 'Inside Out' and 'The Good Dinosaur.' While the latter hit a couple production snags along the way, Disney and Pixar have released the first 'Inside Out' trailer with the first footage from the film.

Early reports on 'SNL' season 40's inaugural three hosts pegged 'Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt and comedian Sarah Silverman, though it seems reports of series alum Bill Murray were only half-right. 'SNL' has indeed tapped a legendary departed cast member for its third season 40 host, that of more recent alumni Bill Hader!

Watch the Bill Hader Impression That 'SNL' Would Not Air

Former 'SNL' head writer Seth Meyers has made it his business to bring some of those sketches cut from 'SNL' to his own 'Late Night' show, and the results have so far been uproarious. While Will Forte's cut bit got the full sketch treatment a few months ago, Bill Hader didn't need those same bells and whistles. After all, his snipped sketch just involved him putting on a weirdly nuanced impression of '60 Minutes' anchor Bob Simon.
