Melissa McCarthy

On Saturday night star of “Bridesmaids”, and Emmy Award winning actress wow fans of “Saturday Night Live” with her first hosting gig. Just one week after Alec Baldwin broke records with his 16th hosting gig the “Mike and Molly” star said that she was “beyond thrilled” with how it went.

She opened with a killer monologue warning her children to go to sleep because “mama's about to get pretty inappropriate".

Her show included some dance fever, ranch dressing taste tests and even a bit of office romance in the shape of sexual harassment. Her performance definitely showed that she has the instincts and timing of a stage comic.

Her celebrity fans were soon tweeting on Saturday night singing her praises.
