Published Nov 05, 7 Larry David returns to host for a second time and revive his Bernie Sanders impression, Alec Baldwin continues to be treated as a cast member, and the show struggles to find footing with its new cast. Here’s everything that happened on Saturday Night Live this week. The Cold Open Unable to shy away from the week’s indictment news, Alec Baldwin’s Trump opens the show by revealing to former campaign manager Paul Manafort Alex Moffat that he’s secretly not going on his two-week trip to Asia. In a cutaway, Melania Cecily Strong is seen enjoying her time with a blowup doll Trump that’s getting along better with world leaders than usual.

Jeff Sessions Kate McKinnon shows up in a striped period bathing suit from his favourite era, the s. The Monologue Larry David, on the back of a Curb Your Enthusiasm revival, returns to host for the second time in as many seasons, even as his signature political impression Bernie Sanders has made a slight return to the news. He wasn’t shy in his monologue, starting with Quasimodo having surprisingly high dating standards before diving into his discomfort that many of those recently accused of sexual assault have turned out to be Jewish. His own attempts to be a good Jew are sometimes hindered by his interest in women, he says, before acting out being a pickup artist in a concentration camp.

Ariana Grande and Mac Miller recently ended their nearly two year relationship. E! News reports that she’s now casually dating Saturday Night Live cast member Pete Davidson. About a week after.
A public conversation about the longtime absence of Black women on Saturday Night Live led to the casting of Sasheer Zamata and the hiring of not one, but two Black women writers: Leslie Jones and LaKendra Tookes. I was, of course, horrified. My anger changed shape over the course of the day. At first, I was disgusted that Jones dared make light of slave rape AND dismiss the significance of The Lupita Moment all in one fell swoop—and that she jumped and hollered like some sort of banshee while doing it.
Leslie Jones is not a slave. She chose to both develop and perform this skit and for that reason, she should be ashamed of herself, but put her to the side for a moment. What about the producers, directors, cast members who watched this play out? When does someone shut down jokes about slavery? Where is the rape idiots.

While I appreciated the black bar mitzvah skit immensely it prompted this post after all , the Katt Williams! Great night for SNL! That hilariousness has been noted. I like what Bond and Morris did. I used to say that I was an SNL host when it was a comedy show, and people would laugh. There are sure to be those who think that their race, not their talent, won them their jobs. Before Zamata was hired, in the 39 years since SNL began in , the show had cast members.
Only 14 of those were African-Americans, and only four of those were women. Looking back at the episode I hosted, I felt discomfort with a skit we did. Morris, who is darker skinned than I am, did a perfect double take. I felt squeamish then but did the skit anyway, and I feel uneasy about this joke even today. I believed it treaded dangerously on the fine line between comedy and poor taste. I always have believed that a skillful comedian — or comedienne — can make a joke out of anything.
No subject is immune.

Those who watched the show in or a year or two later, when it was getting huge and starting to change the culture, had their favorites. But the Detroit-born Radner was the one everybody cherished. She brought a huge smile, a wryly forlorn quality around the eyes, and a fearless attack to every sketch, lame or inspired.
Radner naturally gravitated toward the midpoint between chameleons like Belushi and Aykroyd, and more easygoing improv aces such as Bill Murray , who filled the Chevy Chase slot once Chase left to become Hollywood-famous. Most of the men tried. None of the women got the same chances.

But during the first season in and , according to a book about the show authored by Doug Hill and Jeff Weingrad, some NBC executives were not satisfied with the show’s Nielsen ratings and shares. Baby boomers far outnumbered Generation X in reality but not in television viewership with the exception of Michaels’ new show and major league sports, and advertisers had long been concerned about baby boomers’ distaste for the powerful medium.
NBC executives eventually understood Michaels’ explanation of the desirable demographics and they decided to keep the show on the air despite many angry letters and phone calls that the network received from viewers who were offended by certain sketches.
