Melissa McCarthy hosted a much-anticipated episode of SNL this week along with musical guest HAIM. As expected she delivered on her iconic Sean Spicer impression.

Fans were so excited for Melissa McCarthy to host SNL this week after she was spotted driving a podium through the streets of New York City as Sean Spicer earlier this week. This week’s episode marks McCarthy’s fifth time hosting SNL.

Cold Open

Before Melissa McCarthy had her chance to shine as host, Alec Baldwin returned as Donald Trump. Following this week’s firing of FBI Director Jim Comey, Baldwin sat down with Michael Che as Lester Holt to spoof the President’s interview on NBC News. Check out the hilarious sketch below:

Sean Spicer Sketch

As expected, McCarthy returned as Sean Spicer in another sketch of the night. The audience cheered and applauded when McCarthy returned to the podium this week.

Debette Goldry

Kate McKinnon reprised her role as iconic actress Debette Goldry. This time she is joined by Gaye Fontaine played by Melissa MccCarthy who also had an interesting and bizarre beginning in Hollywood.
