Fey

Tina Fey introduced six new cast members last night and Tina Fey put them through a gold lamé hotpant dance hazing ritual, noting that it would be good training for the frequent requirement that they serve as back-up dancers for celebrity guests.

Cooper

Last night's season finale of Saturday Night Live was full of several funny gay-themed skits. There was one promoting New Xanax, which relieves the stress of attending spectacular gay summer weddings, and another in which Ben Affleck's "ex-gay" character tries to pray the gay away. He doesn't.

SNL also included a grand farewell for Bill Hader and his character Stefon, who is seen about to marry Anderson Cooper.

Watch two of the three (the Ben Affleck clip can be found here), AFTER THE JUMP.

(Gawker compared the attack to "something like a jock slapping a math book out of a kid’s hands and saying, 'NICE NUMBERS, FAG.'")"

Ellen DeGeneres Loves The 'SNL' Her, Kate McKinnon: VIDEOS

EllenSNL

On last weekend's Saturday Night Live, Kate McKinnon did her best impression of Ellen DeGeneres, and it was pretty spot on. So, how did DeGeneres feel about it? She thinks McKinnon is so good that she wants McKinnon to attend Thanksgiving for her. The impersonation is that good.

SNL also spoofed Sophia Grace and Rosie, the Nicki Minaj-loving tots Ellen helped make famous, and, yes, the girls approved.

Watch the SNL skit as as DeGeneres' reaction, via BuzzFeed, AFTER THE JUMP.

GaycoupleSNL

Saturday Night Live's "Weekend Update" segment covered the historic marriage equality wins in Maryland, Washington and Maine last night by inviting a "gay couple from Maine" — played by Bill Hader and Fred Armisen — to discuss how they met, the differences between Maine and glitzy New Hampshire and their romantic engagement. Well, romantic for a gay couple from Maine.

Check it out AFTER THE JUMP.

In other SNL news, hostess with the mostest Anne Hathaway's monologue evolved into a spoof on "One Day," a track from her forthcoming film adaptation of Les Misérables, and the actress also had a pretty genius turn doing "the Sloppy Swish" in a bizarre yet oddly addictive digital short called "The Legend of Mokiki."

And she made great "roach warehouse" in the "Girlfriends" sketch, while getting deep in fictional CIA agent Carrie Mathison's insanity during a send-up of Homeland. But it may be Hathaway's revival of her Katie Holmes impression alongside Kate McKinnon as Ellen DeGeneres.

Check out clips of those sketches, save for the Holmes impression, which isn't yet online, as well as two performances by musical guest Rihanna, AFTER THE JUMP. Oh, I've also included the cold open in which Jason Sudeikis plays a sad Mitt Romney.
