    Weekend Update pretty much showed itself to be 100% in the tank for Hillary and anything Democrat. Despite the thousand jokes that Wikileaks provided about Hillary this week, SNL spent the entire Weekend Update attacking the leaks, Trump, Trump’s wife, and anything other than Hillary. Anybody who doesn’t see SNL as 100% biased politically, and willing to sacrifice lots of humor to spin its politics, is certifiably blind.

    Didn’t think this was a great effort from SNL but I did really enjoy the cold open. Alec and Kate were awesome as always. Benedict didn’t connect with me as a host. I guess I don’t get the hype with him.

    Honestly, I thought Solange was terrible last night. I’m sure the album is good but I thought the performance and vocals were awful. weakest musical guest in a long time IMO. but like Rich, it’s not necessarily my style of music. excited to see how SNL deals with the post election sketches.
