Posted: Sunday, February 12, 2017

Last week Saturday Night Live cheated a little by effectively placing a second cold open featuring Melissa McCarthy’s scorching debut as Sean Spicer in the middle of show. But this week, despite having Donald Trump impersonator-in-chief Alec Baldwin on hand for the entire episode, S.N.L. didn’t make its audience wait for McCarthy’s return and the sketch itself went right for the jugular.

New trailers: emotional Arnold Schwarzenegger, Lego ninjas, and … – The Verge
