Kristen Wiig is returning to the SNL stage this week to host the episode that airs on November 19th. Kristen may have been away from the topical sketch comedy scene for a while, but she clearly still knows what the kids are into these days. In a promo for the episode she's hosting, Wiig joined the current SNL cast in an epic behind-the-scenes Mannequin Challenge. I think it's the best one I've seen so far (well, except for these tiny children who can't stand still).

As per usual, Leslie Jones is an absolute treasure. I am a little disappointed, though, that Kristen wasn't in costume as Gilly or the Target Lady or Sue or one of her other iconic characters. I'm sure at least one of them will make an appearance on Saturday night, though.
