With Fred Armisen, Jason Sudeikis and Bill Hader having confirmed their exits from Saturday Night Live after this season, we knew last night's finale was going to be equal parts emotional and HIGHlarious…but boy, did they give both to their viewers HARD or WHAT?!
While there were many great moments during the Ben Affleck-hosted edition of the long-running NBC sketch comedy show, we think everyone can agree that Hader's final performance as the AH-MAY-ZING fan-favorite Stefon REALLY took the cake…especially when what started out as a relatively standard Weekend Update bit (featuring our beloved Amy Poehler!!!) descended in what we can only describe as MADNESS!
Oh, and just WAIT until you see how Anderson Cooper works into it all (above)!
But before we sob ourselves to sleep and forget entirely that Ben Affleck was even there for the night of good-byes, be sure to check out his opening monologue, for which he brings his wife Jennifer Garner on-stage to discuss his 'marriage' comments during his Oscar acceptance speech…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

This weekend’s season finale — and Bill’s final episode — welcomes back Ben Affleck as celebrity host, as well as Kanye West as musical guest. And if the show is anything like the promo, we’re in for some serious laughs!
Ch-ch-check out Bill simultaneously praise and insult Ben’s work on Argo while Ben does his best impression of Bill (above)!!
Ever since we heard the news that Bill Hader was leaving SNL, we've been weeping human tears and kicking over human fire hydrants while packing our human suitcases to fly away on our human paper airplanes.
We're going to miss so many great characters, but especially, Stefon, who is one of the best things to come out of SNL. (And, let's not forget Seth Meyers, who is the perfect straight man.)
What makes him so charming and HIGHlarious is the fact that Bill can never keep a straight face… Especially, since it turns out, that many of the writers throw in the most wild lines last minute so Bill reads them for the first time on air.
And yes, we're looking at you, raisins that look like Frasier and Jewish Dracula, Sidney Applebaum. LOLz!
So, look no further, this place has everything! We've narrowed down the five HOTTEST Stefon moments from our favorite party monster!
Noooooooooo!!!! How can it be?!
Bill Hader will be gracing the Saturday Night Live stage this weekend for the last time!
The HIGHlarious comedian confirmed his departure from the show and explained:
Natural disaster, schmasheral mishmashter!
Even in the wake of the terrifyingly powerful Frankenstorm, the show must go on!

Bill Hader and host Louis C.K. are clear: nothing could prevent cast, crew, and musical guest .FUN from lifting the spirits of their wounded city!
Awww! That is why we laugh, right? To keep from crying!
We bet New York natives will get goosebumps when Louis says, "Live from New York, it's Saturday Night!"
After the pain and suffering Hurricane Sandy caused, we know we will!!
Hooray for raunchy sex comedies!!
In the spirit of critically lauded flicks like Animal House, Gangbangs of New York, and American Pie comes the next high-concept titillating chuckler, The To Do List!!
Newbie writer/director Maggie Carey's Valentine's Day comedy follows an inexperienced young woman prepping herself for college life!
