In between all of the tributes and montages and musical performances, the SNL 40th Anniversary Special actually found time for some original content. Right after a montage celebrating the short films that have been featured on the show over the years, Zach Galifianakis took to the stage to introduce a new digital short from Andy Samberg and Adam Sandler. Unlike most of Samberg’s original shorts, which usually traded in genial silliness, this one looked inward and examined a subject that everyone who has ever been on the show should be familiar with: breaking character.

Merciful Zeus, if you thought Eddie Murphy returning to ‘SNL’ after 31 years for the 40th anniversary special on February 15 was big enough, wait until you get a load of the full roster.

If you're going to have only one Facebook friend, it might as well be Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg. While it's unclear how many stars have Facebook profiles lovingly crafted by the Zuck himself, Andy Samberg has one, and he shared the story of its creation on last night's 'The Tonight Show' with a gobsmacked Jimmy Fallon. We're jealous.

There are a lot of intriguing things going on in '7 Days in Hell,' an original movie being produced for HBO. First of all, it's a sports comedy. Secondly, it's a mockumentary. Third, it's going to star the completely untested comedy duo of 'SNL' alum Andy Samberg and ... 'Game of Thrones' star Kit Harington?!

Alas, the 39th season of 'SNL' has come and gone with this past weekend's return of cast alumni Andy Samberg (along with a number of others). Though, even with the tremendous 40th anniversary special looming in our futures, season 39 had one last golden egg to give. Watch Andy Samberg sell a unique cologne in a deleted short from this past weekend's 'SNL.'

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.
