"How am I going to demand the best table at subway if I don't have a TV show?" Fey deadpanned of her SNL encore during a classic opening monologue.

In addition to poking fun at the Tina Fey nipple slip from the Emmys, the opening routine also channeled Miley Cyrus Twerking and much more. Watch:

The comedienne took on the HBO show Girls, joining the core four as Blerta, the girl from Albania with a rubber hand and OCD (Old Cow Disease):

Cooking massive amounts of meth and murdering people.

As expected, Tina Fey is embracing her Emmy Awards wardrobe malfunction.

Millions watching Sunday's broadcast saw the now-infamous Tina Fey nipple slip, as her blue Narciso Rodriguez dress revealed just a little too much.

In the SNL promo below, she shows that she knows how to take a joke, and that she's deserving of the Emmys' Best Comedy Writing trophy. Take a look:

It's unclear if we'll actually see Tina Fey topless during her upcoming hosting gig on Saturday Night Live, but the gag certainly played well in the promo.

She fell during her monologue. Multiple times.

She pretended to try out for The Voice.

She failed as Vanna White and she mocked the Mike Rice scandal as Rutgers.

Indeed, Melissa McCarthy hosted Saturday Night Live for the second time this weekend, taking on a number of characters and making an early bid to be the next member of the Five-Timers Club.

Melissa McCarthy Falls
