Tina Fey and Amy Poehler made their triumphant return to “Saturday Night Live” last night, appearing together as co-hosts to promote their new film “Sisters.” The pair were the first duo to co-host “SNL” since Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen hosted with musical guest J-Kwon all the way back in 2004.
Tina and Amy were joined by musical guest Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, who hadn't played the show since 2002... And not only that, but Bruce and the gang were joined by Paul McCartney (and the "SNL" cast) to sing “Santa Claus Is Comin’ To Town” over the closing credits.
Below are some of the episode’s highlights:
Tina and Amy put together their own dope squad.
Taking inspiration from Taylor Swift’s video for “Bad Blood,” Tina and Amy took aim at the gendered questions often levied by journalists at female actresses (“how do you juggle it all?”) by taking a look at the many people they rely on make their everyday lives work, including their nannies, their gynecologist (which they share), Robert Downey Sr., and a hilarious cameo from Amy Schumer.
Hillary Clinton was visited by from very special guests from 2008.
Hillary Clinton in 2015 (as played by Kate McKinnon) was visited by Hillary Clinton from 2008 (played by Amy Poehler), as well as Sarah Palin (as famously portrayed by Tina Fey). 2008 Hillary was very pleased to hear who she’s running against in 2016.
Tina and Amy host “Meet Your Second Wife.”
This extremely funny (and disturbing) sketch was a game show where men get to meet their second wives from the future, who, in the present, are still in grade school.
The return of Bronx Beat.
Amy and fellow former “SNL” cast member Maya Rudolph reunited for a new edition of “Bronx Beat,” joined by Fey and a very aggressive Philadelphia accent.
Kyle Mooney and Pete Davidson put together a parody ad for hoverboards, the holiday gift for "people who hate walking and love fires."
“Carol” with 70s sitcom acting.
This sketch imagined the romantic period piece “Carol” with reactions and facial expressions from “The Jeffersons,” complete with spit-takes and Amy Poehler doing the Sherman Helmsley dance.
"SNL" takes a month off and returns on January 19th with host Adam Driver.
