We’ve got all the details on that and much more, right here.

• Signing Off: Kristin Wiig officially ended her  seven-year run on Saturday Night Live on the show’s season finale, with the Bridesmaids star tearing up  during an emotional send-off. Meanwhile, Mick  Jagger hosted the show for the first time, giving a killer  impersonation of Steven Tyler while he was at  it.
