On last night's inaugural 'The Maya Rudolph Show,' host Maya Rudolph unveiled The Garmyns, an all-American family made wealthy and happy by the voice skills of both Mama and Papa Garmyn (Rudolph and Fred Armisen). They've certainly earned their GPS wealth, but it sure seems as if they've taken their work home -- no, really. What happens when the Garmyns meet their future son-in-law (Andy Samberg)? Just a lot of recalculating.

'SNL' Scorecard: Andy Samberg Brings Back The Old Gang For The Season Finale

The truth is, I don’t particularly enjoy reviewing ‘Saturday Night Live’ – something I’ve done now for four full seasons at three different outlets. Now, I’ve loved the show for my entire life and I love writing about the show, but it’s not easy to be critical of what these people do every week because it really is remarkable what they can pull off in less than one week on live television. (I’ve attended ‘SNL’ twice: Once in 2009 and then again for dress rehearsal last night. Watching the organized chaos that unfolds in person is almost overwhelming.)
The 2013-2014 season is now over and, no, it won’t go down in history as one of the better seasons in ‘SNL’ history. The show has lost too many stars over the past couple of years to recover that quickly, but they will recover. They always do. ‘SNL’ has always leaned heavily on recurring sketches, but what’s weird is how many recurring sketches are in rotation right now that not that many people love. When you think back, there’s always been a ‘Church Lady’ or ‘Wayne’s World’ or ‘Cheerleaders’ or ‘Stefon’ – but now, they don’t have that, and without that it’s been hard to sustain an identity.

'SNL': Lonely Island and Pharrell Williams Sing About Giving All of the Ladies Some Hugs

When Andy Samberg was a cast member on 'SNL,' he routinely set the internet on fire with his digital shorts, but none were as popular as his Lonely Island music videos, which saw him, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone performing hip-hop music that often sounded like the real thing. Well, at least it would sound like the real thing if the subject matter wasn't totally crazy. With Samberg performing hosting duties on the season finale, Lonely Island reunited for a new video (with a special appearance by Pharrell Williams), singing and rapping about what it's like to be hardcore huggers.

This season of 'SNL' has been all about truly weird and experimental digital shorts, so it only makes sense that guest host Andy Samberg (who helped pioneer them in the first place) would help make one of the strangest. There's almost no dialogue in this sketch and the joke isn't immediately accessible, but it's the kind of specific and eclectic comedy that 'SNL' tends to excel at when it wants to.

'SNL': Seth Meyers, Bill Hader and Martin Short Crash Andy Samberg's Opening Monologue

It can be an odd experience when former 'SNL' cast members return to host the show. On one level, it's refreshing to see some of your favorite faces return to the stage. On another level, it's a reminder of what the show has lost (especially in a "rebuilding" season like this one). So the season finale's opening monologue was a bittersweet affair, with guest host Andy Samberg being joined by fellow 'SNL' veterans Seth Meyers, Bill Hader and Martin Short.

Charlize Theron's big return to the 'SNL' stage this past weekend mostly missed the mark, save for a few bizarre-enough-to-be-funny sketches, but this Saturday's season finale already has a few Golden Globes in its pocket. 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' star Andy Samberg will make a long-awaited return to his 'SNL' roots to close out the season, and the first promo already feels like home.

We'd already known that 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' star Andrew Garfield would make his 'SNL' hosting debut in early May, but the final hosts of the season web up much more excitement. Not only will Charlize Theron return for her second time on the 'SNL' stage, but distinguished alum and 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' host Andy Samberg will return to make his hosting debut for the finale!

Stephen Colbert might have dominated the late-night landscape with the announcement of his succession to 'Late Show' host David Letterman, but NBC has stolen back a bit of thunder with help from 'SNL' veteran Maya Rudolph. The network has officially scheduled 'The Maya Rudolph Show' variety special for a late May premiere, with guests such as 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' star Andy Samberg, Kristen Bell and more, but what are the chances of an ongoing series?
