Few things are as desperate, unfunny and generally sad as the modern television sitcom, so it's only natural that ‘SNL’ would put this format right in its sights. While ‘The Dudleys’ may not be as wild or transgressive as something like ‘Too Many Cooks,’ its satire of the trouble with TV comedy in the year 2014 is on point, concluding with a statement that's surprisingly (and welcomingly) vicious for modern ‘SNL.’

Last night's ‘SNL’ was like a checklist of every possible and necessary Woody Harrelson joke. After all, if you've got him hosting your show, you have to do a ‘Hunger Games’ sketch and you have to do a ‘True Detective’ sketch. However, one subject reigns supreme when you talk about this acclaimed, award-winning actor: you have to do a marijuana sketch.

With Woody Harrelson guest-hosting ‘SNL,’ it was inevitable that the show would break out the ‘True Detective’ jokes at some point. After all, few modern shows have grabbed pop culture by the collective lapels and shaken them so much quite like this HBO series, which saw Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey playing cops investigating a freaky, ritualistic murder. Since the second season of the show will feature a brand new cast and storyline, Weekend Update invited Harrelson and McConaughey to chat about their experience filming season one and to offer advice for everyone joining the show for season two.

When Woody Harrelson was revealed to be hosting ‘SNL’ just a few days before the new ‘Hunger Games’ movie was set to open in theaters, it was obvious that the massively popular franchise would, somehow, figure into at least one sketch. Surprisingly, that ended up being the opening monologue, which featured Harrelson performing his own version of Taylor Swift's ‘1989.’ With a little help from some friends.

As is often the case these days, the funniest sketch on last night's episode of 'SNL' wasn't built around the guest host or a celebrity impersonation. In fact, this one doesn't even feature host Chris Rock. It does, however, feature Beck Bennett and Kyle Mooney in two the lead roles, only further cementing them as the funniest guys on this show at the moment.

Last night's Chris Rock-hosted episode of 'SNL' saw a handful of sketches that seemed interested in crossing lines of good taste and/or grotesqueness, but there was only one that dealt exclusively with inserting cameras up your rear end. Enter the commercial parody for "GoProbe," the world's coolest and most exciting way to have a, uh, colonoscopy.

It's nearly impossible to be a connoisseur of modern popular culture without finding yourself listening to a Taylor Swift song every now and again. Despite your best efforts, it's easy to hear one of her songs, not realize that it's her, declare your love for it and then realize exactly what has happened. Believe it or not, this is an actual medical condition and 'SNL' and Swiftamine are here to save the day!
