In a week that saw Days of our Lives make the mainstream news media, Saturday Night Live decided to spoof the current President Trump impeachment hearings and turn them into its own amped up soap opera, with special guest star, Jon Hamm.  The hearings are also currently upsetting many a soap fan its pre-emptions of their network daytime dramas.

In the SNL cold open; Mad Men alum Jon Hamm took on the role of  former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, Bill Taylor.  Kate McKinnon reprised her portrayal of President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani, while Heidi Gardner played a fainting soapy impeachment hearing attendee.

Meanwhile, SNL’s Alex Moffat played House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff and Mikey Day served as “cross-examiner” Republican Rep. Jim Jordan.  Cecily Strong took on the role of former Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch and Pete Davidson portrayed  attorney Michael Avenatti.  Then, Kenan Thompson stopped by as  suspended NFL player Myles Garrett and Melissa Villaseñor played “telenovela sensation,” Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

As “AOC”, Melissa says: “This hearing is lacking one thing — a star!” . She then let her hair down and makes out with Taylor played by Hamm.

As a soap fan I didn’t find it all funny on the heels of the full cast release. It seemed NBC allowed SNL to speak for them on how they view this particular type of daytime programming. Taking a direct shot at Carlivati, calling it over the top, hyped melodrama. Whatev.

SNL is more than Awesome!!
humour is always welcomed..It hits the spot every time !
Some older people don’t get it or their sense of humour has regrettably deteriorated, by my observations.
Every week I and friends/family look forward to the SNL cold opening.
We enjoy laughing, my grandma doesn’t seem to get it.
AHAA the skit was indeed a show of political soap opera.
It was another excellent/well done opening!!
— One thumb up !!

Your grandma DOES get it! She has enough sense not to laugh at things that just are not funny! SuOOO, SNL used to be a comedy skit show with a musical guest. Now, the show has an agenda to be hateful, mean spirited with a goal to reach a certain fan base. Oh, and a musical guest.

WHOA!
you; ” hateful, mean spirited with a goal to reach a certain fan base”
That ^^ is 110% FOX, ahh now I understand..
FOX Primetime commentators and the over 60 audiences..
Now I get it..
The generation gap.
thanks Timmm 🙂

The skit was horrible and the show is a disgrace! I just dont understand how this crap keeps being aired and DAYS gets the back door!
