Jesse Eisenberg‘s opening monologue killed it this week. Killed it. That is how opening monologues are done, people. And that was before Mark Zuckerberg, looking like the weird Aspergy automaton that he is, came on to meet the young man who played him in The Social Network for the very first time.
The rest of the episode wasn’t so bad either. Lorne Michaels has apparently heard the people’s cry for more Bill Hader laughing at himself, and who would have ever thought John Waters and Nicki Minaj would go so well together? Our favorite clips, below.
Jesse’s opening monologue. Can he just be our new boyfriend, please? He’s so much less squirrely than Michael Cera. Maybe it’s his Jewish self-deprecation, we don’t know. He could play Woody Allen in The Anti-Social Network. Za-zing!

Bill Hader as Herb Welsh, which is apparently his new Stefon because he starts losing his shit halfway through.
