Chris Rock’s hosted ‘SNL’ was, well, a bit of a mess. Which all seemed even more surprising after the obviously fired up Rock’s monologue – there just seemed to be so much energy! And then there wasn’t. ‘SNL’ has been really great so far this season, so of course after the first what can be called a misfire of the season, there were all the naysayers on Twitter, lamenting how ‘SNL’ isn’t funny anymore. Oh, puh-leeze. The reason ‘SNL’ is like nothing else is that it can go wrong; it’s what makes the show interesting.

Jim Carrey has plenty of trademark characters to trot out -- Ace Ventura, the Cable Guy, Fire Marshall Bill, the Riddler (wait, scratch that one) -- but the funny man seems to be quite recently endeared to a new, highly specific one: fellow actor Matthew McConaughey in his Lincoln commercials. Carrey debuted his take on the admittedly overly dreamy commercials during last week's 'Saturday Night Live,' but he's not done with it just yet.

I cover ‘SNL’ on a weekly basis and have been a staunch supporter of Michael Che’s recent rise to the ‘Weekend Update’ desk. This is why reading his sexist joke -- his fake "apology" in response to a video of a woman being harassed on the streets of New York City -- this morning didn’t ignite feelings of “outrage,” just pure disappointment and sadness.

'SNL' already gave us an exciting preview of this Saturday's November opener with news that Prince would perform an eight-minute jam session set instead of the usual 2 songs, but now it's Chris Rock's turn in the spotlight. Watch the one-time 'SNL' star break the usual promo format to hit the streets with Bobby Moynihan, and maybe, just maybe, throw in a Prince cameo!

This coming weekend's 'SNL' will already be one to watch, returning Chris Rock to the stage after nearly two decades away, alongside legendary musical guest Prince. If that weren't exciting enough, the formerly known as "formerly known as" artist will also make 'SNL' history, eschewing his two performance slots for one eight-minute uninterrupted jam session. Plus, check out a Mike O'Brien digital short deleted from last week's Jim Carrey installment!

'SNL' and Drunk Uncle Have a Thing or Two to Say About Halloween

With all of the new and new-ish faces on 'SNL's Weekend Update lately, it's always nice when a familiar character pops up to restore the show's equilibrium for a few minutes. Since we can't have Stefon on the regular anymore, we'll happily settle for Bobby Moynihan's Drunk Uncle, who returned to the show last night with a thing or two to say about Halloween.

'SNL' and Jim Carrey Take on Those Matthew McConaughey Car Commercials

EDIT

Yeah it is a little strange that a newly minted Oscar winner like Matthew McConaughey would be caught dead making television commercials for Lincoln cars. However, it did lead to a series of fake 'SNL' commercials featuring guest host Jim Carrey playing the 'Dallas Buyers Club' and 'True Detective' star, so who are we to complain?

'SNL' Scorecard: Jim Carrey Does a Pretty Good Rendition of 'Chandelier'

The first time Jim Carrey hosted ‘SNL,’ back in 1996, is still one of the most popular in the show’s history. His return in 2011 featured jokes about the upcoming 2012 apocalypse (that never happened). Carrey’s third time as host – with this heavily-themed Halloween episode -- will be most remembered for an impression of a music video that you may or may not have ever seen. Hey, here’s an ‘SNL’ Scorecard, just for you…
