Saturday Night Live welcomed Hugh Laurie as host for the final show of 2008. The biggest news came during Weekend Update Amy Poehler said goodbye to her days as a castmember.

Two of the other highlights also came from Weekend Update. In what will be their final installment of "Really?!? with Seth and Amy," the Update anchors address Illinois Governor Blagojevich's refusal to resign his position. In addition to the stupidity of being caught on a wire, they addressed his hair.

"It's beside the point, but... The hair. Really! It looks you're wearing a toupee that's also wearing a toupee. It's a pro-ceeding hairline... The first time I saw you, I thought you were walking away."


And in a hilarious new impression, Fred Armisen played legally blind New York Governor David Paterson, discussing filling Hillary Clinton's Senate seat.


This weekend's digital short steered clear of after-hours content and stuck to more innocent topics: cookies and the digestive system. Despite learning he may get fired, one worker just can't control himself in the presence of cookies. If only they were just cookies.


Another skit featured a few inappropriate wedding toasts to the bride and groom, including one from the bride's ex boyfriend, played by Fred Armisen. WATCH:
