Kristen Wiig returns to Saturday Night Live this weekend to make her hosting debut on the show, and in this preview clip, the former cast member gets pumped up with Fred Armisen. Wiig and Armisen riff on characters like Jump-Roping Rhonda and mean veterinarian Annabel Johnson in the first bit, and Armisen slaps Wiig for leaving the show to soul-search in the second. Wiig also jokes that she's been living in the SNL studio since her departure, and orders an SNL promo on the phone. Later, Wiig and Armisen diffuse a serious situation and bust a move.
