Melissa Mccarthy - Last Night's SNL Was Hosted By Melissa McCarthy. Hilarity Ensued.

Mellissa McCarthy had her second turn hosting SNL last night and, according to popular opinion, it was good.

Everyone knows that McCarthy’s biggest strength is in physical comedy and she didn’t disappoint on this week's SNL – from stumbling around in heels, to flailing in an eerily accurate impression of fired Rutgers basketball coach Mike Rice. Naturally, SNL picked the hot topic as their centerpiece sketch, in which McCarthy played the terrifying coach of a women’s basketball team. Rice may have shoved players and hurled slurs, but Cathy’s Sheila Kelly was equally as obnoxious, throwing toasters and making her players cook her meals on court. The reproductions of practice video and the character's "only in women's basketball" haircut, suit and shoes made the sketch a win.

The food theme continued throughout the night, probably because SNL writers didn’t have too many current events to sink their teeth into this week. Sports also made an appearance in several other sketches, like Kenan Thompson making an appearance on "Weekend Update" as Charles Barkley, sending up Sir Charles' fondness for gambling and constant ribbing of Michael Jordan ("the Michael Jordan of gambling"). Oh and let’s not forget Peter Dinklage’s cameo as Bobby Moynihan's drunk uncle, Peter Drunklage. By this point everyone’s agreed that anything Dinklage touches turns to gold, right?

Once again, we had a solid night of entertainment “live from New York!
