In today’s EOD roundup, we’re still reeling from the back-to-back (if you got your DVR game proper, like we do) onslaught of foreshadowing-and-symbolism-fraught TV that was Game of Thrones and Mad Men last night.

This weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live was much anticipated, as it was hosted by Justin Timberlake, marking his induction into the hallowed five-time hosting club, which includes Alec Baldwin, Martin Short and Tom Hanks. But one of the best sketches of the night didn’t feature Timberlake at all, but rather almost every female cast member doing her best “yuppie girl chatting about birth control to her besties” commercial impression.

This weekend’s Saturday Night Live not only featured a surprisingly delightful hosting turn from Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine, but the return of Nasim Pedrad’s delightful Arianna Huffington impression on “Weekend Update.”

Martin Short was the host of Saturday Night Live this weekend, and it was an enjoyable episode. His sketch comedy chops made him seem less like a host and more like a bonus cast member. The best sketch of the night, for our money, featured Short as a liaison to the Queen and Bill Hader as the royal OB/GYN. Short proceeded to advise him on the proper protocol for dealing with the royal “Ahem,” including tipping one’s hat to it (but only if it tips its hat first).

The show had the opportunity to do a new take on the biggest scandal or 2012; instead, they made the same boring jokes as everyone else.

It was a girl power-heavy episode of Saturday Night Live this weekend, with Anne Hathaway hosting to promote Les Misérables and Rihanna performing in her finest repurposed camouflage fatigues. And it was pretty good — one of the strongest episodes all season, thanks to Hathaway’s commitment, the bizarre green screen effects of Rihanna’s set, and newcomers Aidy Bryant, Cecily Strong and Kate McKinnon dominating the night. It was awesome to see all of those new ladies in the cast killing it in sketch after sketch. There was a special place in my heart, however, for this week’s cold open, which featured Romney on the balcony drowning his election sorrows in milk.
