After a COVID outbreak among their cast, Saturday night live hosted a makeshift show this week featuring a mix of sketches recorded earlier in the week with host Paul Rudd and all-time classics. It starts with Tom Hanks, Tina Fey and Kenan Thompson Induct Rudd into the illustrious Five Floor Club—Started by Hanks, the first five SNL organization.
After a strange combination of new and very old Christmas-themed sketches, former lead screenwriter Fey and current Michael Che took their seats on stage for a stripped-down version of “Weekend Update” in front of a crowd of Hanks, Thompson, and Rudd (they shot it without a live audience thanks to the COVID scare).
“Time magazine voted Elon Musk as Person of the Year. You can read more about it on your phone while your Tesla is driving you into the lake,” Fey joked.
Che then targeted Fox News hosts Laura Ingraham, Sean Hannity and Brian Kilmeade texting Trump during the January 6 uprising in the Capitol, begging him to say something—anything— to get his ardent supporters (whom he had instigated) to stop trying to tame democracy.
“It was revealed that on January 6, three Fox News hosts all texted Mark Meadows to urge him to urge Trump to call his supporters away,” Che said. . “And you know you’ve gone too far when Fox News says, ‘Someone better calm these white people! “
Overall, Fey and Che have done it best in surreal situations — and seem to be in good spirits.
