Eli Manning made a surprisingly watchable appearance as guest host on Saturday Night Live last night, tweaking big brother Peyton Manning in a PSA-style sketch touting his work with Little Brothers—the younger Manning teaches little boys how to wreak revenge on their attention-hogging older brothers, mostly by torturing them. Manning appeared in a number of sketches, "where he mostly stuck to playing mild-mannered guys in awkward situations," notes Aaron Couch at the Hollywood Reporter. Other highlights included a Cold Open mocking Fox News, and an appearance by Kirsten Wiig as the smokin'-tanned Patricia Krentcil on Weekend Update. (More Saturday Night Live stories.)
