SNL: How Did Vince Vaughn Do as Host?

TV Guide

Vince Vaughn hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend for the first time in 15 years, with musical guest Miguel. The episode included spoofs of the gun-control debate and (of course) Brad Paisley and LL Cool J's misguided duet "Accidental Racist."

The show also announced that Zach Galifianakis would return as host for the second time on May 4, with musical guest Of Monsters and Men.

TV Scorecard: What's renewed? What's canceled?

Check out some of the highlights from Saturday's episode below. How do you think Vaughn did?

Opening Monologue

In his second stint as host, Vaughn paid tribute to "the most important part of the show" by getting up close and personal with some of the audience members.

Bill Hader does his best Pacino impersonation in this parody trailer, in which the Scarface star plays several accused killers, including Amanda Knox, the Menendez brothers and Dr. Conrad Murray (in blackface, of course):

The Weather Channel's Stormy Skies

Written and directed by a local meteorologist , The Weather Channel's first original soap opera Stormy Skies is like no sudser you've ever seen.

"Accidental Racist"

Obviously SNL couldn't let the week slide by without taking on the Brad Paisley/LL Cool J duet "Accidental Racist." Watch Kenan Thompson and Jason Sudeikis (as LL and Paisley) respond to the backlash.

Last Call:

Kate McKinnon reprises her role as a desperate drunk woman closing down a bar, this time hitting on a "wasabi pea tester" played by Vaughn.
