The "Modern Family" star opened the show acknowledging that it may be difficult to understand what she says due to her thick Colombian accent.

"You might have noticed I have a bit of an accent sometimes," Vergara said during her monologue on the show. "So, tonight, please forgive me if you cannot understand what I say, and I will forgive you for staring at my chest the whole night."

During the show the Emmy-nominated actress played Fran Drescher, herself in a Pantene commercial, a reporter embedded in the arena during the 74th annual Hunger Games and many more characters.

Reviews of Vergara's performance on the show have been fairly positive.

"Sofia Vergara's first outing as host of 'Saturday Night Live' was solid and consistently funny," says Entertainment Weekly.

"Vergara didn't stray too far from her roots, playing mostly South American characters, but there were a few skits that the Colombian bombshell was in that stood out above the rest," says E! News.

The Huffington Post said a lot of Vergara's sketches involved her yelling at the top of her lungs, but acknowledged she was better than expected.

Vergara's Modern Family co-star, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, applauded her on Twitter writing "A triumph @SofiaVergara! So proud!" including a photo of himself and the actress backstage at the show.
