(Newser) – Last night's season finale of Saturday Night Live didn't have many snoozy moments: Oscar winner Ben Affleck hosted, taking on his marriage-is-work gaffe in the opening monologue with wife Jennifer Garner at his side, the show bid dramatic farewell to longtime heavyweight Bill Hader vis a vis his Stefon persona, Amy Poehler returned for a stint on "Weekend Update," and the Hollywood Reporter notes that a "Top of the Pops" sketch may have signaled Fred Armisen's exit as well. Oh, and musical guest Kanye West unveiled two new singles on the show.
