Live from New York, it’s Stefon’s Mother’s Day suggestions on SNL!

A full recap on Saturday Night Live is to come, but for now, for Mother's Day, it's important to take a look at last night's most popular sketch — at least the sketch most applauded by the live studio audience — as Bill Hader's Stefon character re-emerged during Weekend Update to deliver some timely suggestions on the hottest places in New York City to celebrate Mother's Day.

Did writer John Mulaney and head writer Seth Meyers do something different last night to ensure that Hader would crack even more than usual? Is Stefon the most popular thing going on SNL because it's so crazy? Or is it popular because audiences enjoy seeing an actor break character by laughing? Should we ask Jimmy Fallon? Should we ask Harvey Korman? Another question? And another question? OK. We get it. HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

Roll the clip!
