Just as Jimmy Fallon finally stepped up to 'The Tonight Show' last week with a star-studded parade of gags, fellow 'SNL' vet Seth Meyers finally made his own way up the ranks with last night's premiere of 'Late Night with Seth Meyers.' The new debut brought not only a spot-on parody of Fallon's "Thank You" sketch, but also some extended animosity between Meyers' first guest Amy Poehler and 8G band leader Fred Armisen.

First, 'Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston took the 'Archer' gang into outer space. The next year, 'Mad Men''s Jon Hamm caused mayhem on the ocean floor. We thought for sure 'The Walking Dead''s Andrew Lincoln would next strike from a volcanic base, but we were close! 'Dead' star Lauren Cohan will in fact lend her vocal talents to 'Archer' season 5, opposite 'SNL' alum and 'Portlandia' creator Fred Armisen!

By the end of this year's 'SNL' season finale (which was hosted by 'Argo' director Ben Affleck), it was obvious that series veteran Bill Hader would be depart the series. But while it's still unknown if fellow veteran Jason Sudeikis will also be saying goodbye, it's now clear that Fred Armisen's final tribute performance was meant to confirm the 'Portlandia' star's 'SNL' exit.

'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.'
