Finally back on track and refreshingly funny after the cumbersome and off-pace SNL40, Saturday Night Live turned in one of its best shows so far this season and star Chris Hemsworth was self-effacing and right in the game of spirit of the series.
Last night brought Chris Hemsworth to Saturday Night Live as host, and Zac Brown Band as musical guest! Chris Hemsworth was host two months before the release of the next “Avengers” movie.
Check out all the highlights below, including Chris’ monologue (with cameos by Luke Hemsworth and Liam Hemsworth), Disney Channel’s Brother 2 Brother, The Iggy Azalea Show, an Action News 7 special report with The Avengers, and more.
Also, make sure to catch Zac Brown Band’s performances of “Homegrown” and “Heavy Is the Head” with Chris Cornell below.
Enjoy your Sunday – Saturday Night Live returns March 28!
