Tina Fey on SNL: The Skits You Missed

When Tina Fey stops by Studio 8H, they’ve almost always got a few good things set up for her and this weekend’s episode of SNL was no different. Even though she’s super pregnant, Fey dove head first into her beloved Sarah Palin impression, a stint as the Little Mermaid and a member of a really uncomfortable Birthing class. Oh and she did a duet with her unborn child to celebrate Mother’s Day, so that was strange. No episode of SNL is really amazing overall, but they certainly pulled out a few of the big guns for the return of one of their own. So without further ado, here are our favorite moments from the weekend’s SNL.

First up, because we have to, here it is: Tina Fey as Sarah Palin. (Also making a rare appearance: Darrell Hammond as Donald Trump.)

Then she got into a tomato red wig and some sparkly green fins as the Little Mermaid, but the twist is the skit isn’t actually about her, but rather a very recent, highly publicized burial at sea. (Come on, just think about it for a second. Or watch the video and it will tell you, cheater.) It was a simple twist and a simple skit, but I think it worked.

From what worked to something confusing on a grand scale. This week’s digital short was another Lonely Island song featuring Michael Bolton. Apparently he’s a cinephile and it gets out of hand and he ends up dressed like Jack Sparrow. We’re not really sure what’s happening here, but we’re pretty sure you should just see it for yourself.

And finally, I know we only normally pick out the top three, but guys, STEFON IS BACK! My favorite Bill Hader character made another appearance on Weekend Update just in time for Mother’s Day and as usual it was hilarious.

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
