NBC fired over the complete clippage for S38 premiere featuring Seth MacFarlane - who kicked off the new season of Saturday Night Live in excellent fashion.
His monologue, boasting an impressive array of Family Guy voices (among others), will be memorable, but he really shined throughout the show, including his hilarious Weekend Update cameo as Olympian Ryan Lochte.
The season premiere marked Jay Pharoah’s stellar debut as President Obama, which you can find in the cold open and the election campaign parody ad below.
Plus, new cast members Aidy Bryant, Cecily Strong and Tim Robinson all made their SNL debuts last night.
Other highlights include an outstanding take on Gangnam Style in “Lids,” “Eastwood and Chair,” “Puppet Class” and Honey Boo Boo Child and Mama’s visit to the Weekend Update desk.
Finally, don’t miss Frank Ocean perform “Thinking About You” and “Pyramids” with a little help from John Mayer on the guitar. The full episode will be available online early this afternoon.
