'Saturday Night Live': Justin Timberlake cameos in Amy Poehler's return

Amy Poehler made her triumphant reuturn to "Saturday Night Live" and we found most of the Poehler-focused bits to be hilarious. We also enjoyed Justin Timberlake's cameos.Christine O'Donnell's Checkered PastThe opening skit lambasted the new Delaware Republican Senatorial candidate Christine O'Donnell, playing off of her dabbling-in-witchcraft confession by portraying her as a masturbating, dog-fight staging arsonist. Hee. Kristen Wiig can be so good sometimes.Amy Poehler's affairsA nice joke in Amy's opening monologue is that she's had "two beautiful boys" since being on "SNL." The two beautiful boys in question are Nick Jonas and Taylor Lautner and to them she says, "You're welcome." Poehler then went on a "nightmare" scenario of "SNL" where Justin Timberlake, Rachel Dratch, Tina Fey and Jimmy Fallon all made cameo appearances. It was delightful. Bronx BeatMaya Rudolph also returned to the show for the "Coffee Talk"-esque "Bronx Beat" sketch with Poehler. It wasn't that great -- until Katy Perry was brought on as the neighborhood "babysitter," but she was rocking the boobs in an Elmo shirt as a response to "Sesame Street" canceling her appearance. That part of the skit was actually very funny and good on Katy Perry for her accent.Weekend UpdateAmy Poehler (of course) made an appearance on Weekend Update and it was predictably awesome, even if the appearance by real New York Governor David Patterson fell a little flat.After Weekend Update, as is what typically happens on "SNL," the show went a little downhill. The uptight-fashion-lady Kristen Wiig sketch was not that funny. In fact, the only big laugh after Update came from seeing Andy Samberg in a mock trailer for "The Expendables" as Brigitte Nielsen. What did you think of Amy Poehler's return to "SNL"? We don't think it was quite on par with Tina Fey's hosting job last spring, but we still think she gets a thumbs up.Follow Zap2it and Zap2it Andrea on Twitter and Zap2it on Facebook for the latest TV, movie and celebrity news.Photo credit: NBC
