Daniel Craig may not have been the most hilarious host “Saturday Night Live” has ever had, but the show did snag a pretty great cameo for Weekend Update — none other than Big Bird himself, in response to Mitt Romney’s comments about cutting off the government subsidy to PBS.

The Big Bird bit wasn’t as funny as we were hoping it would be when he first came out on the Update set, but then again — he is a beloved children’s character and he can’t exactly come out and say outrageous things. So it was cute and also just kind of awesome that Big Bird was on “SNL.”

The rest of Weekend Update (minus Cecilia Jimenez part) was it’s usual funny self. We particularly liked the Winners/Losers of the debate segment.

What do you think, viewers? Was Update your favorite part of Saturday night’s “SNL”?
