Politics was the story in 2016 and helped to lead Saturday Night Live to the biggest season in decades. Thanks to whom? Frank Pallotta:
It was a season marked by sketches that made its audience laugh and the new President angry, thanks in part to spot on impersonations from Alec Baldwin and Melissa McCarthy.
Baldwin’s mockery of Donald Trump and McCarthy’s take on Sean Spicer contributed to the some of the Internet’s most viral moments this season. But can the show keep up its ratings boom if Baldwin retires his Trump wig and puckered lips?
Maybe I should start reading Doonesbury again.
