The actor jokingly told that he had organized "the most anticipated final of the weekend" during his opening monologue of the season finale.
Paul Rudd returned to Studio 8H on Saturday to host the final of Season 44 Saturday Night Live.
The actor began his monologue by explaining that he was delighted to host the final of the season, which was "the most anticipated final of the weekend" – a stab in Game of thrones, which should be the subject of a highly anticipated final episode on Sunday.
After sharing this monologue, he should be both funny and heartwarming "as the talk of a man of value at a wedding," he asked for a glass of champagne to toast.
He reflected on his first reception SNL. "I had not done a Marvel movie yet, so I always treated people pretty well," he joked. "How times have changed."
Rudd also rethought his memorable "Kissing Family" sketches, in which his character had embraced many other actors appearing in the series. Speaking of how time has gone and things are different now, he joked "SNL was a real dirty dog. I think that a thousand people have been on you. "
He concluded his speech by remembering the first time that he had met Lorne Michaels, in which he had joked that he had told the head of the show that it would be a day at the variety show.
"We have always been present for each other, whenever you needed a host and promote a movie," said the actor.
Saturday's concert marks Rudd's fourth time as host of SNL.
