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.

The Jimmy Fallon episode of SNL was terrific and crowded with guests, but he can’t do everything himself. There was room for some very funny non-Fallon sketches.

In an episode with surprise appearances from Hugh Jackman and Kenny G, the best cameo of last night's Saturday Night Live may have actually come from the host himself. Stiller's popular movie character showed up on Weekend Update, pairing up with Bill Hader's Stefon to give viewers a guide to New York City's latest hot-spots. --Natalie Wright

Justin Timberlake's episode of SNL was packed with great sketches, but another terrific one - full of references to his movie career - never made it into the show. Take a look at this self-mocking dress-rehearsal video of Timberlake as Mozart, who complains "I've been working in music since I was a boy " - that would be on "the Austrian Mouse Club" - and decides to try acting.

Justin Timberlake and Lady Gaga turned the SNL season finale into one of the most consistently funny shows of the season, with plenty of help. The real Bradley Cooper sat next to Andy Samberg as Nic Cage; Jimmy Fallon returned as Barry Gibb with Timberlake as his Bee Gee brother Robin in a crazy politically-themed installment of their classic "Barrry Gibb Talk Show." But the best was a Digital Short: "Three-Way The Golden Rule."

Robert Smigel’s animated Ambiguously Gay Duo shorts, about two superclose superheros, goes way back on SNL, and last night’s installment briefly seemed like an echo of the old days. Then it burst into wild live action, with Jon Hamm and Jimmy Fallon as heros Ace and Gary, guests Ed Helms, Stephen Colbert and Steve Carell (he’s the big-headed guy) and more phallic imagery than Freud ever dreamed of.

There’s Tina Fey in the photo above, literally glowing with pregnancy because, as she explained in the promo to last night’s SNL, she’s carrying an alien baby. And while there were plenty of irreverent Mom jokes from Fey and pregnant guest Maya Rudolph on the show, the best parts had nothing to do with the Mother’s Day theme, or with some oddly flat Bin Laden jokes.

Helen Mirren,like any great actor, has suffered through some bad scripts, and you have to add last night's Saturday Night Live to that list. From the opening monologue, with the actors dressed as sailors from South Pacific singing "There is Nothing Like a Dame" (as SNL itself would say, Really?) with Mirren in a hideous blue spangled dress, to the last mintues when she very briefly emerged in a leopard jumpsuit as an aging stripper, the writers did nothing to take advantage of her wit. Her comic strength is withering delivery, not funny costumes.
