‘SNL’: Stefon’s Farewell Features Anderson CooperIn the season finale, "SNL" gave a fitting tribute to the character, as Stefon--played by outgoing cast member Bill Hader--gave us all one more "New York City's hottest nightclub" to add to his list before abruptly leaving Seth Meyers to go marry Anderson Cooper .
