Jason Segel & The Muppets Take Over "SNL"

Taking over the small screen stage last night (November 19), Jason Segel handled the hosting duties during this weekend's episode of "Saturday Night Live".

The 31-year-old actor kicked off the long-running NBC sketch comedy show with a piano set monologue in which he was joined by The Muppets during a song about the night ahead on SNL.

The Segel fronted episode also featured a piece called "Regis Philbin Auditions" in which the producers paired Kelly Ripa up with some potential replacements including Charles Barkley, George Lopez and Denzel Washington.

Other highlights included Jason getting the chance to showcase his great celebrity impression in “Andre The Giant Gets An Ice Cream,” along with a digital short dubbed "Seducing Women Through Chess".

To top things off, the latest "Saturday Night Live" welcomed Florence + The Machine as the musical guest as the group treated the audience and viewers at home to renditions of "Shake It Out" and "No Light, No Light".
