'SNL' Makes History With Host Tiffany Haddish, Spoofs Roy Moore Scandal

In another sketch, we got to see a slew of stars, including Mary J. Blige (Haddish) and Kit Harington (Alex Moffat), in unearthed screen tests for 'The Lion King' live-action adaptation.

AceShowbiz - Tiffany Haddish made history on this week's "Saturday Night Live" as the first black female comedienne to host the long-running NBC comedy show. The "Girls Trip" star, donning a high-slit white gown, opened the show's daunting monologue by talking about growing up in a foster care in California.

The comedienne went on saying that she loved "SNL" since she was a kid, and it took much effort to make "black and hispanic kids" watch "SNL" over "Living in Color". She added, "Trying to convince them that ['SNL' star] Dana Carvey was just as funny as ['ILC' star] Damon Wayans was a problem. I got stabbed twice in a bunk bed."

The host also discussed recent sexual misconduct allegations against a slew of famous figures in Hollywood. "Fellas, I got a tip for y'all. I like to call it Tiffany's tips, it's the Tiff-tips," she said. "Listen fellas, listen. If you got your thing-thing out and she got all her clothes on, you're wrong. You're in the wrong!"

The topic was also touched multiple times throughout the episode. This week's cold open featured Beck Bennet reprising his role as Vice President Mike Pence. He could be seen having a conversation with Republican Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore (played by Mikey Day), who is accused of having improper relationships with teenagers when he was in his 30s.

"Mike, look, it's all lies. I'm not that guy," Day's Moore told Bennett's Pence. Not really convinced by Moore's remark, Pence replied, "Perhaps, Roy. Perhaps. But it's hard to convince people you're not into young girls when you're dressed like Woody from 'Toy Story'."

Meanwhile, Colin Jost talked about President Donald Trump's trip to Asia in addition to tackling the mounting sexual misconduct allegations. "It's Veteran's Day and Donald Trump celebrated by finally going to Vietnam," the rumored boyfriend of Scarlett Johansson joked in "Weekend Update". Meanwhile, co-anchor Michael Che took a jab at Trump for his lackluster response to the Sutherland Springs church shooting in which he said it was mainly a "mental health problem." Che said, "Why can't it be both? Why can't it be that because we have a mental health problem, we now have a gun situation?"

As for his comment on the sexual harassment scandal, Jost quipped, "Well, it's a good weekend to stay inside, since it's 20 degrees out and everyone you've ever heard of is a sex monster," before screen behind him flashed images of Louis C.K., Kevin Spacey, Harvey Weinstein and Moore.

In another sketch, we got to see a slew of stars, including Mary J. Blige (Haddish), Kit Harington (Alex Moffat), Oprah Winfrey (Leslie Jones), Eminem (Pete Davidson), Lin-Manuel Miranda (Cecily Strong), John Oliver (Day) and Cardi B (Haddish), in unearthed screen tests for upcoming "The Lion King (2019)" live-action adaptation. Moffat's Harrington confused the audition was for being the King in the North instead of the King of Pride Rock, while Davidson's Eminem was just busy roaming around the room instead of saying his lines.

Kate McKinnon later returned in "Whiskers R We", a sketch she previously performed with Kristen Wiig, Reese Witherspoon and more. Joined by Haddish, McKinnon transformed into an older woman promoting their "fall cat giveaway."
