Who knew? Don Draper can make a joke or two.
Suave AMC "Mad Men" star Jon Hamm made his second appearance on "Saturday Night Live" this weekend, hosting the show alongside musical guest Michael Buble in a program that poked fun at the State of the Union, "Jersey Shore" and Hamm himself.
Hamm, who stars as a slick advertising executive on the 1950s-era award-winning show, opened "SNL" with a monologue that inserted his dapper Don Draper persona into parodies of programs like "Saved by the Bell," Def Comedy Jam and the QVC Home Shopping Network.

Hamm's monologue followed a sketch about Obama's State of the Union speech, which featured Fred Armisen as the commander in chief who enjoyed a brigade of standing ovations.
The "Mad Men" actor worked alongside "SNL" vet Kristen Wiig in several sketches, including a bit about a piano-playing twosome and a parody ad that also featured Will Forte as a unitard-clothed one-man closet organizer.
Wiig and Hamm continued the political parody with a sketch that featured Hamm as Massachusetts Senator-elect Scott Brown and Wiig as Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
The actor also played alongside musical guest Michael Buble, starring in a short about "Hamm & Buble," a restaurant serving pork products and sparkling wine.
Saturday's episode also made use of tried-and-true standbys, most notably Bobby Moynihan's inspired impression of Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi from MTV's newly renewed series "Jersey Shore."
Hamm last hosted the program in 2008 alongside musical guest Coldplay.
