Second-time host Zach Galifianakis took the funny to a higher level on "Saturday Night Live". The master of improvisation did not only launch catchy one-liners like "In April, I'll be babysitting my sister's kids via Skype", but also went as a drag and shaved his head ala Mr. T.

In his monologue, Zach did some characters such as "a redneck who orders things at a convenience store very masculine-like but can't order one of the products very masculinely" and "the guy from Queens who's obsessed with cargo shorts". He closed it with a synced performance of "Tomorrow" from "Annie" while dressed in the character's short red dress.

Mel Gibson's ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva still plans to sue the embattled actor despite him striking a plea deal over a charge of misdemeanor battery, according to her lawyer. The Russian singer accused the "Lethal Weapon" star of attacking her during a bust-up in January 2010 and the pair have been fighting through the courts for custody of their daughter Lucia after splitting in 2010.

Gibson struck a plea deal with Los Angeles prosecutors to keep him out of jail and on Friday, March 11, was handed three years probation and ordered by a judge to undergo counseling. He also has to carry out 16 hours of community service and pay almost $600 in fines.
