Adam Sandler's Return to 'Saturday Night Live' Starts Off Slow But Is Ultimately Satisfying

After 24 years, Adam Sandler returned to Saturday Night Live to host the late night sketch series for the first time ever. The expectations were high, and while the Sandman was back to his usual self, the overall show took some time to gain steam. Thankfully, it ended with a bang and even some tears.

Last Call with Adam Sandler – The kind of characters Adam Sandler likes to play when he’s at his goofiest fit in perfectly with Sheila Sovage (Kate McKinnon) and her desperation for some love during last call. But this time, she gets double the company, because Adam Sandler’s wife, played by a spray-tanned Kristen Wiig, is also looking for some action.
