Josh Hutcherson hosted “Saturday Night Live” and accidentally presided over the show's own “Hunger Games”: A brutal battle for stage time that got Bobby Moynihan shot through with an arrow.

In the show's pre-Thanksgiving episode, the “Catching Fire” star also brought his turkey girlfriend home for dinner, and went back to the 1980s to sing the Outfield's “Your Life” to Vanessa Bayer — who also played the appalled turkey. The show opened with Kate McKinnon as George Zimmerman's girlfriend, explaining their “trespassing” role play games to Piers Morgan (Taran Killam).

    I tried watching this with my sister, we only made it past Haim's first performance. I never thought SNL was really funny, but this is just bad. They desperately need new writers.

    I hope somebody got fired for this episode. . . . like a BUNCH of people.
