Tina Fey on 'SNL': How'd she do?

For its 39th season, "Saturday Night Live" relied on an old favorite, Tina Fey, to help them introduce a major cast change.

In place of former stars Jason Sudeikis, Fred Armisen and Bill Hader, there are now six newbies that fans will have to learn to tell apart. That likely didn't happen after Saturday night's season premiere, but with Fey at the lead, the transition wasn't disastrous.

Tina Fey returns to 'SNL,' and more news to note

Today's news you might've missed:

  • The people of "Saturday Night Live"-land are rejoicing: Tina Fey is returning to the sketch comedy show as a third-time host on September 28. She'll be followed by Miley Cyrus, who'll be both host and musical guest on October 5.
  • If Vin Diesel isn't somewhere counting his millions, he should be. His new movie "Riddick" pulled a fast one on "The Butler" at the box office, and opened at No. 1 with $18.67 million. [Forbes]
  • Expect to see Simon Cowell smiling more on this season of "The X Factor." With a baby on the way, the judge tells Ellen DeGeneres that he's "happier than I've ever been." Oh, and P.S.: His baby's mother being a gold digger is "absolute nonsense." (Either way, Cowell should heed Kanye West's advice: she's still got him for 18 years.) [Access Hollywood]
  • Britney Spears has been working on her fitness on top of the music. The star's shared snapshots from the set of her "Work, B***h" music video - including one in an itsy bitsy teenie weenie bikini:

  • DMX, meanwhile, is showing even more skin in this footage of the rapper running laps - naked - down a hotel hallway: [TMZ]
  • Our brains can't handle the imagined cuteness: Sandra Bullock's little man, Louis, gets in guy bonding time with her "Gravity" co-star George Clooney. [Us Weekly]

Kanye West: 'Yeezus' walks on 'SNL'

Two "Saturday Night Live" sets, an Instagram and 66 projector images later, we now have a better picture of what's to come on Kanye West's anticipated new album.

As promised, the rapper - not to be confused with a celebrity - didn't take part in any of the skits for "SNL's" season finale/swan song for cast member Bill Hader. But he didn't need to - over the course of two songs, West still left a lasting impression.

'SNL' star goes on 'Ellen' as ... Ellen

Thanks to "Saturday Night Live's" Kate McKinnon, Wednesday's "Ellen" had twice as much DeGeneres.

The "SNL" comedian put on an Ellen-approved blond wig, sweater and jeans, and came back out on the set as the cheery host's double.

McKinnon's impersonated Ellen before, such as in the "SNL" skit that also had Anne Hathaway taking a stab at playing Katie Holmes:
