The show was hosted by Hollywood movie star Jeff Bridges.
At the top of this week's Saturday Night Live, host Jeff Bridges brought out Cookie Monster to sing a duet on "Silver Bells." It was refreshingly sweet -- how nice to see some unironic amusement. Most of the time, however, Saturday Night Live seemed to start its holiday vacation early, with a show that consisted of fitful charm, familiar characters and targets, and a series of sketches whose punchlines were telegraphed by their titles.

Musical Guest: Jay-Z "Jay-Z took the stage where he first performed a medley (that was apparently too long ) of his hit songs and eventually was joined by Bridget Kelly for "Empire State of Mind." Later on Mr Hudson wearing some strange pantsteamed up with the rapper on "Young Forever," which he dedicated to the "most incredible Betty White." Too bad Betty and Jay did not do a skit together.
