Mick Jagger was host of one of the best SNL’s of the season, a high-energy finale that relied on Jagger’s persona and was fueled by so much nostalgia that it seemed like classic rock, with Jagger doing "19th Nervous Breakdown" with Foo Fighters, "The Last Time" with Arcade Fire and "Ruby Tuesday" in the show-ending goodbye to Kristen Wiig, who’s leaving SNL.

Jon Stewart, Eddie Izzard, Russell Brand, Coldplay, Kristen Wiig, Paul Rudd – that’s just part of the crazy-long list of performers who will be on stage at Radio City Music Hall on Sunday for the first U.S. version of The Secret Policeman’s Ball, the long-running, usually raucous and hilariously raw benefit in Britain for Amnesty International. The show will be on the EPIX channel and – even better – live-streamed free by EPIX so everyone can watch on-line.

OK, I surrender – if not to The Artist, to the charming, exuberant SNL dance sketch and Artist tribute starring Jean Dujardin himself.

Last night’s SNL started off with the best sketch of the show: Newt Gingrich, President of the Moon, with cameos by Mitt Romney, Herman Cain, Calista and a Reaganesque robot. (Everyone except host Channing Tatum.)

Channing Tatum did a pretty funny Matthew McConaughey impression in a not-so-funny sketch on SNL, and while he was a fine host overall the show didn’t really belong to him. All those sketches about his early stripper days became very one-note. But when the show turned away from Tatum, it took off. A highlight was Kristen Wiig as Lana Del Rey.

The reviews of New Year’s Eve make it sound like the end of the world, so it’s a quick step from there to SNL’s parody, a sequel in which thousands of stars collide on one very special night: Apocalypse.
