If you missed Saturday Night Live last night, you actually missed something. The holiday show featured plenty of blasts from the past—specifically, Rachel Dratch, Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, Horatio Sanz, Chris Kattan, and Tracy Morgan, not to mention host Jimmy Fallon—and it was a classic. Among the highlights:

  • Jesus (Jason Sudeikis) appears in the Denver Broncos' locker room to talk to none other than Tim Tebow. "I pray to you before every game," explains Tebow. An unimpressed Jesus responds, "Here's something else you should do before the game: stretch. Get the arm warm. Read the playbook ... seriously." Watch the video in the gallery to find out who Jesus prays to (something you probably don't currently know ... "because I'm not in everyone's face about it") and what he thinks about Mormonism.

  • Musical guest Michael Bublé launches his new album, Christmas Duets—and the impressions of the musicians he teams up with (Fallon as Sting, Justin Bieber, and Russell Brand; Kristin Wiig as Taylor Swift; and Jay Pharoah as Kanye West; among others) is pretty amusing.
  • It's a Weekend Update "Joke Off," as Fey, Fallon, Seth Meyers, and Poehler come together and attempt to out-joke each other. The theme: a strip club's Christmas toy drive. Among the best lines: It's "Toys for Ta-Tas."
