Returning to the sketch comedy show after last appearing nearly two decades ago, Christina Applegate took the helm of yesterday’s (October 13) all-new installment of "Saturday Night Live."

Following a Vice Presidential Debate Cold Open, the 40-year-old actress offered up a monologue in which she opined about it presently being the best time of year, as it isn't quite the holidays just yet.

Amongst the noteworthy skits were a new segment dubbed ‘Tech Speak: iPhone 5′ which saw a panel of experts overview the flaws of the new iPhone 5 until unexpected guests showed up, as well as a new 'The Californians’ piece with a wedding planning theme during which the nuptial preparations become dicey when Stuart learns unsettling pieces of news about his fiancé.

To top it all off, Miss Applegate was joined by musical guest electropop band Passion Pit, as Michael Angelakos, Ian Hultquist, Xander Singh, Jeff Apruzzese and Nate Donmoyer offered up renditions of "Take A Walk" and "Carried Away."
