Tina Fey, Amy Poehler & Tracy Morgan Join Jimmy Fallon on a Cameo-Crazy Saturday Night Live

Ah, time to enjoy some Saturday Night Live classics.

Jimmy  Fallon returned to his old stomping grounds, bringing on the  holiday cheer during the show’s Christmas-themed episode and making the  transition from former castmember to first-time SNL host.

And Fallon’s return to the late night laugher wouldn’t have been complete  without a few other SNL alums along for the ride, including the likes  of Tina Fey, Rachel  Dratch and Amy  Poehler.

Kicking off the show with a reprisal of his Boston native character Sully,  Fallon and Dratch brought back their beloved Denise and Sully sketch in the cold  open, with their infamous impromptu make-out sessions to boot (“You’re a moron.  You are!”). Poehler even popped up in the sketch (and got fondled by Fallon  while she was at it).

Along with his skits, Fallon’s impersonations were spot on, particularly  those of Regis  Philbin (“Regis is back baby! You can’t kill me, I’m like Tupac Shakira“), and the barrage of  performers he took on in his skit with Michael Bublé, “Bublé  Duets”, like Sting, Justin  Bieber and Russell  Brand.

Kristin Wiig‘s take on Taylor  Swift, Jay Pharoah‘s Kanye  West, Taran Killiam‘s Scotty McCreery, and Fred Armison‘s Thom Yorke in that skit were  also particularly hilarious.

 

 

And while Fallon went on to play a pop-and-locking horse in a War Horse skit, he even made time to spoof himself  (courtesy of Andy Samberg). In the mirror bit, Fallon sat in front of the glass, talking  himself up about his hosting stint, while Samberg sat on the other side of it,  playing, well, Fallon.

Later, Fallon popped up on Weekend Update with former anchors Poehler and  Fey, who all joined current anchor Seth Meyer for a Weekend Update joke-off.

But, those weren’t the only SNL alum cameos.

 

 

A stone-faced Tracy Morgan, Chris  Kattan and Horatio Sanz were also on hand to bring  back “I Wish it Was Christmas Today” with Fallon on a Christmas tree-covered  stage.

And although Fallon wasn’t in it, the Tim Tebow skit featured Killiam playing  the religious Denver Bronco who has a huddle with Jesus (Jason  Sudeikis).

We can’t help but hope SNL brings back its former castmates more  often, but we want to know: What did you think of Fallon’s turn as host of the  show?
