'SNL' vet Fred Armisen may have left the long-running, late-night comedy for good this past season, but he won't be hurting for work any time soon. IFC has granted an additional two seasons to its critically adored sketch comedy series, 'Portlandia,' to air in 2014 and 2015 respectively, but will the series come to a conclusion thereafter?

Of course there was an 'Argo' sketch on last night's SNL. How could you get Ben Affleck to host and not have some kind of 'Argo' sketch? However, what they came up with proved much stranger and much funnier than you'd expect. What if Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad protested 'Argo' by making a movie about the making of 'Argo'? Well, now we know!

This weekend will mark a monumental occasion for 'SNL,' not only elevating season finale host Ben Affleck into the five-timers club, but also bidding a fond farewell to veteran Bill Hader, potentially Jason Sudeikis and Fred Armisen as well. Less impressed with the proceedings is the controversial Kanye West, who barely manages to hid his disdain in the most recent promos for this weekend's all-new 'SNL.'

This past weekend's 'SNL' with Kristen Wiig drew heavily on nostalgia, but it seems we didn't know which performer's absence would truly soon be felt. In advance of the season finale with Ben Affleck and Kanye West, 'SNL' veteran Bill Hader has revealed his intent to leave the series, but who might also leave behind the late-night, sketch comedy?

Is there a recurring SNL sketch more divisive than "The Californians"? For everyone who loves it, there is someone else who thinks it's one of the worst things to ever happen to the show. The latest edition won't change any minds, but the return of Kristen Wiig does make it a little more special than the past couple of times they've trotted it out.

While most would agree that 'SNL's' most recent turn with 'Django Unchained' star Jamie Foxx hosting and musical guest Ne-Yo stayed mostly level, it's no secret that a portion of 'SNL' viewers tune in to see which sketches can make the performers break. "The Californians" has been known to get cast members giggling, partiuclarly Bill Hader and Fred Armisen, but we've never seen them lose it so hard as a deleted sketch from Saturday featuring the pair as doormen. Check it out inside!

Earlier today we were ecstatic to confirm the news that longtime 'Saturday Night Live' star Jason Sudeikis would stick with the NBC sketch-comedy series through another season, rather than depart with Andy Samberg, Kristen Wiig and Abby Elliott.  Now, as 'Saturday Night Live' prepares to launch season 38 this Saturday night, we have even more turnover to report, though this time internally.  Fred Armisen will be stepping down from the role of President Barack Obama, but who will take his place?
