NBC fired over the best of clips round-up from last night’s holiday episode of Saturday Night Live.
The SNL cast hosted the return of Dooneese (“Lawrence Welk Cold Open”), James Franco explaining his recent career choices (“James Franco Monologue”), special guests Mike Tyson and Jack McBrayer (“What Up With That”), Andy Samberg as Mark Wahlberg (“Mark Wahlberg Talks to Xmas Animals”), a Jersey Shore spoof (“Update: Snookie”) and the kissing family going to extremes (“Kissing Family”).
Also posted below are performance videos featuring musical guest, Muse.
Franco kissed Will Forte, Fred Armisen and Bill Hader in a skit about bringing his girlfriend home to his kissing touchy feely-crazed family – with Forte playing his creepy open-mouthed kissing granddad.
In a later sketch, Franco was enamored of shrubbery - playing a Christmas tree dealer who bonds with his spruce.
Boxing legend Mike Tyson also appeared with Keenan Thompson as the host of What’s Up With That.
