With Jesse Eisenberg, star of The Social Network hosting SNL last night, it was the perfect time for Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook, to make his primetime debut and that’s exactly what happened.
Here’s a video of Eisenberg opening the show with the help of The Zuck (He appears part way through the opening monologue):
I personally enjoyed the “I invented poking” line Zuckerberg delivered, even if he did seem to feel a bit akward standing on the live stage of Saturday Night Live, but who could blame the guy, he’s not a trained actor.

As the Charlie Sheen rollercoaster continues to derail we bring you news of a different sort. It turns out that Charlie Sheen’s new “porn pal” Kacey Jordan likes famous guys. Not only has she been spending time with the Two and a Half Men star, she used to date Kevin Federline.
Jordan claims she even went so far as to babysit the couples kids every now and again when Federline would go out without her. We assume that means when Federline went drinking with the guys since he doesn’t actually work.
