Ratings might not have reflected as much, but Fred Armisen’s return to the SNL stage for its Season 41 finale definitely felt like one of the better, weirder outings of the year. We’ve a long ways to go before Season 42 starts gearing up this fall, so enjoy the last bit with a delightfully bizarre cut sketch of Fred Armisen in funny coats!

By now you’re well-aware of the big twist on last week’s episode of Game of Thrones — thanks to tabloid reports and transparent deflections and flat-out lies from cast and crew alike, Jon Snow’s revival was probably the worst-kept secret in recent TV history. Still, fans had to sit through two of the most painful hours of the series before we finally got to what we all knew was coming. It’s okay, SNL feels your pain.

Netflix added another bankable success to its brand of sketch comedy reviving W/ Bob and David, and if they’re ever going to fulfill plans to double down on original content, they’ll need a sketch comedy all their own. Enter The Characters, a new eight-part sketch series with guest stars from SNL, Broad City and more.

The Bronze was the first film to get critics buzzing at Sundance earlier this year, inspiring some fairly divisive reactions to the raunchy comedy starring The Big Bang Theory’s Melissa Rauch as a foul-mouthed, washed-up former Olympic gymnast. The first trailer has finally arrived to give you a NSFW taste of what all the fuss was about — turns out, it just sort of looks okay.

Whenever the women of SNL get to together make a music video, it tends to be the highlight of the show. The show’s female line-up is the strongest it has been in years (dare we say ever?) and their fearlessness is only matched by their comedy chops. Nothing is off limits and they‘re not afraid to embrace their femininity in ways that feels honest, insightful, and occasionally deeply weird. Like this sketch, which finds Kate McKinnon, Aidy Bryant, Cecily Strong, Vanessa Bayer, and guest host Elizabeth Banks singing all about the men who first turned them on when they were young girls.

There are few things more difficult than trying to be funny when the world isn't in the mood to laugh. But when you're a live comedy sketch show with an infamously rushed schedule to follow, you cannot let the tragic events of the real world derail the production. The show must go on. SNL could have easily not mentioned the terrorist attacks that rocked Paris the day before the most recent episode. No one would have batted an eye. Instead, the show dedicated its cold opening to the City of Light, promising that New York City stands with the Parisian people.

Last night’s SNL was marred by a guest host who was only there because the show wanted to ride his controversial coattails to a few extra headlines. And it worked. Everyone was talking about Donald Trump being on the newest episode of SNL. Unfortunately, publicity does not a good episode make and the Presidential hopeful showcased a distinct lack of talent and comedic chops. Thankfully, there were sketches that didn’t feature him and some of those were good. Take the “Bad Girls” video, which is evidence that the current crop of women on the show may very well be the anti-Trump when it comes to being watchable and funny.

Whatever your politics, there’s little denying that Donald Trump will deliver the spectacle to SNL this weekend, hosting alongside musical guest Sia. Following a short break, the first promos of Trump’s SNL return have arrived, and The Donald comes out swinging at his opponents just as absurdly as you imagined.
