Saturday Night Live is back, and last night’s season premiere introduced us to the show’s new cast members, who had little to do, and let us know that host Seth MacFarlane can do a whole bunch of funny voices. Who knew?!
The show was largely forgetabble, but these three skits stood out as did musical perfomer Frank Ocean’s two musical performances, the latter of which wasn’t even ruined by the presence of John Mayer.
Jay Pharoah proved he could do a pretty remarkable Barack Obama right off the bat last night in a skit that also benefited from Jason Sudekis’ perfect impersonation of Mitt Romney.
Seth MacFarlane does a pretty great Ryan Lochte.
The one stand out last night was new cast member Cecily Strong, whose Mimi Morales on Weekend Update was one of the highlights in a very dull episode.
