      I unironically love how everyone despises Cuomo now. DSPgaming of politics

    3. xmrtuvgs

      Aidy Bryant (as Ted Cruz), to Cecily: "because we are two strong women" had me rolling on the floor.

    4. Jaclyn Zen

      Brilliant opening skit all the way ‘round. Spot-on impersonations, especially Britney. LOVE SNL! 🖤 #FREEBRITNEY

    5. Danielle H.

      Why did Governor Cuomo receive an Emmy instead of a Grammy?🏆 Because He Killed Grammy! ⚰️👵🏼

    6. Matrix Survivor

      You idiots laugh

    7. Kai Reid

      They cheer a lot for cuomo

    8. Audrey Grace

      Are you wanting to post a lame apology 20 years late? @justintimberlake!

    9. The Frickin' North

      He sent positive covid patients back to the nursing homes where they infected and killed a large amount of the residents... a direct order from cuomo .... they want you to think it’s just a mis marking of deaths ,,,, bs ,,, snl just stop with the political narratives ... nothing is funny anymore

      1. The Frickin' North

        @j you don't... Its un bad taste allready the way it is

      2. j

        How would you even be able to make that funny?

    10. knokhol

      We have the funniest President of all time and every week I am so disappointed for lack of Biden jokes. Is it illegal now to make fun of the old fart?

    11. Lou Frances

      Her dancing is perfect! 😂

    12. UHFStation1

      TRL means? Also what is this note app?

    13. Glen Campbell

      Cringe af

    14. Sehrish Rabab

      Gina was cool

    15. Jane Foster


    16. Caroline Wimberly


    17. JR FURY

      Governor Cuomo made an ORDER that put infected Covid patients in the nursing home resulting in deaths at the nursing home. It seem that this sketch plays down this scandal.

    18. David Armillie

      LOL I watched it 3 times so far 2:14 #FreeBritney

      1. David Armillie

        Gina Carano’s controversial social media posts, Lucasfilm has released a statement Wednesday night, with a spokesperson saying “Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to be in the future. Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable.”

      2. David Armillie

        Watch 5:36 They totally flashed #FreeBritney I love it!!!!

    19. Will

      Well, Ted Cruz never caused any elderly people to die and then covered it up.

    20. h k

      it was really nice of britney to bring the zodiac killer on her show

    21. Pablo Gonzalez

      Strong misunderstood women lol

    22. Greg Rock

      Gina Carano didn't say anything remotely like "Conservatives have it as bad as people living in Nazi Germany," but as with so many other things, if what actually happened isn't egregiously misrepresented and bruted around as something it was nowhere near...well then, the joke falls flat, doesn't it? While I thought her comments about mask-wearing and the pandemic were largely baseless-- if not to say a bit stupid at times-- I find there to be a real piquant irony in the fact that Carano called out liberals for straw-manning and misrepresenting political conservatives so as to demonize them, and for using bully-boy tactics to shutdown/silence/deplatform people they can't coerce into doing what they want...prompting liberals to show their outrage over such scurrilous accusations by doing exactly what she described. Over the past few years, SNL has managed to put strong writing and talented performers together to turn out some of the best sketch comedy the show ever did, all they way back to it's early heyday 35-40 years ago. Which makes it suck that much harder when they cheap out and fall back on weak crap like that.

      1. Greg Rock

        ​@MrMaxinne What she said was: *"Because history is edited, most people today don’t realize that to get to the point where Nazi soldiers could easily round up thousands of Jews, the government first made their own neighbors hate them simply for being Jews. How is that any different from hating someone for their political views?”"* Translation: "People are much easier to push around, marginalize, and eventually infringe upon their civil rights and individual liberties if people in positions of power and influence make them out to be some sort of scurrilous enemy within." This being what liberal progressives/bed-wetting SJWs habitually and relentlessly accuse conservatives of doing to illegal immigrants, Muslims, and black people. From the moment that the 2016 election was called for Trump, the Rachel Maddows, Don Lemons, Van Jones', and Trevor Noahs of America's mass-circulation media were positively losing their shit and and making all manner of idiotic prognostications about how otherwise closeted/undercover white supremacists and Neo-Nazis were going to be 'emboldened" by the new Racist In Chief to feel totally secure and at complete liberty to not only discriminate against various demographics, but be wholly and openly racist, abusive, even physically violent towards them. Yeah...that **TOTALLY** happened. So much so that people had to keep making up/reporting bogus hate crimes. The best-known among them being Jussie Smollett's comically inept, cartoonishly idiotic, and utterly incompetent attempt to make himself a martyr for gays and black people via a phony "bashing" by two random strangers in MAGA hats. As is their habit, liberals couldn't start buying into his BS fast enough. If you wanna some real comedy gold, go find one of the highlight reels showing politicians, "journalists," and entertainers tripping over each other to condemn the attack, and then bloviate about how it ought to be expected in "Trump's America," while saying that those who expressed doubts only did so because Jussie was black and/or gay, not because his story was **OBVIOUSLY** total bullshit. Even if I were to agree that Gina Carano was saying that "conservatives today" = "Jews during the Holocaust" (which would piss me off because I'm sick of people constantly comparing everyone/everything they don't like to Hitler/Nazis) her firing by Disney and the self-righteous twaddle about her horrible offense is still rank hypocrist of the highest sort. Besides the constant equating of Trump to Hitler; liberal media figures and liberal politicians alike couldn't stop comparing federal detainment/processing facilities for illegal immigrants on the southwest US border to concentration the point of calling them "concentration camps." One of Carano's co-stars circulated a meme juxtaposing a picture of Jewish kids in a Nazi death camp to Latino kids in an ICE facility. Did he get summarily shit-canned for that? Was he called out as anything but "stunning" and "brave" for being so principled and compassionate? To the extent that it hasn't been perfectly obvious for years at this point, American liberals remain unwilling, unable, too self-righteous, and far too full of shit to take to heart the lesson that this kind of elitist, pandering bullshit is a huge part of the reason why an incompetant, bungling assclown like Trump was able to get elected President in the first place.

      2. MrMaxinne

        She did just that, tho. Compared GOP supporters to Nazi era Jews

    23. poison ivy

      nice job throwing up occult hand gestures when talking about britney’s subliminal messages on instagram..... the useful idiots won’t catch it but i see you #FREEBRITNEY

      1. Wade Carmen

        British in prison?

    24. Jesse Nunez


    25. Jitana Martinez

      Ironic how he’s being investigated for sexual harassment as well

      1. Justin Weisberg


      2. The Frickin' North

        You are thinking of Cuomo and Biden

    26. Young 'Leb

      Aidy's Ted Cruz is my favorite

    27. Lindsey Ergler

      You did awesome Pete 💕

    28. Alfie Bart

      OMG the voice is sooo spot on LOL and the head tilt

    29. Heidi F

      lol you guys are so biased🤡

      1. Heidi F

        @Spiritual Being it's not even funny

      2. Spiritual Being

        Duh, it's a comedy show. 🤦🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️

    30. harley quinn fan 101

      if you didnt know the snl at 1000 was britney spears

    31. bri

      Pete Davidson is the perfect Cuomo. I think we'll be seeing more of him as Cuomo now that there are 3 women accusing Cuomo of sexual misconduct.

    32. Queenie Rieske

      The uneven scallion analogously face because singer inherently punish into a boring trail. strange, teeny-tiny stocking

    33. NF411

      Chloe is fantastic. I can't remember the last time I saw SNL give a cold open lead to someone in their first two years on the show.

    34. MarkY MarK

      The way Britney (her dancing) introduces Governor Andrew Cuomo LOL this is great comedy.

    35. ThePrattLP

      Y'all didn't get the TRL joke.

    36. StewAlmighty

      That's not what Gina said lmaooo

    37. Luc Grillet

      one of the best skits in a long time

    38. jestin robinson

      I’m baffled that there aren’t more comments about how shitty this show has become. First off, Gina Carano doesn’t act like that at all. So it’s ok for you pieces of garbage to impersonate her and make her act like a man, because she’s would literally kick the shit out of everyone on that stage at the same time in real life? You have to rag on her because she’s a conservative? You people are a bunch of hypocrites and you have a horrible sense of humor if you still watch this show and think it’s funny. You cancel culture pussies.

    39. rose b

      i love how cecily is physically unable to look at aidy without breaking.

    40. Corette Jones

      This THing was Gold!!!🤣🤣🤣🤣

    41. sehhi vooty

      “Yeah, but I’m on the upgrade list though.”😂

    42. Beast EternalInferno

      abby elliot would've done better as britney, i think

    43. Brian Koller

      I'm flying through a big brother turn style. Down in the Subway. Girl you got the White Stuff. # Brian Koller # Impressed

    44. InternetDork101

      I love how this show is powered by the insanely unorthodox world we live in 😂😂

    45. Jesse Sleight

      Snl really shoved its liberal slant in our faces by making the 2 guests say not to compare themselves with Cruz and that she's first class and he's a can of soup or something like that

      1. sehhi vooty

        More andrew cuomo skits please!!

    46. P.Y. The Leader

      what the fuck was this

    47. Cassie Blythe

      Horrible impression of Gina . Was this the best u could do? She's a badass so don't even try 🤣🤣👎👎👎

    48. Marta Roquette

      I've never seen Pete Davidson with such a good acting - he didn't laughed

    49. Nick Latino

      I love when he's like when you die, I will not count your body

    50. Genece Davis

      I can’t with Ted Cruz’s hair and pina coloda... “hola!” 🤣

    51. Josh S

      “On Instagram, you said Conservatives have it as bad as people living in Nazi Germany.” Fact Check: FALSE. Gina Carano’s post never mentioned Republicans or Conservatives. Those who say she said that are putting words in her mouth.

    52. Nik Tsouk

      Pete sounds like Bernie

    53. fournierman

      I love the remark about Disney World. So, so true.

    54. rukia1216

      As a Texan I mean this with my whole soul.......fuck Ted Cruz!

    55. Ken Fox

      Brittany is 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

    56. AAE

      Truly funny skit, I laughed out loud!

    57. Mcheetah

      Except Gina never actually said that? And why is she so butch in this?

      1. MrGonzale09

        have you seen Gina on the mandalorian she looks butch. in real life she was sexy and skinny.

    58. Bud Ganjaman

      Wow SNL has really jumped the shark... How is this $hit show still on???

    62. sean mchugh

      1. max

        You're getting OLD. Don't like don't watch.

    63. Video Game Sanctuary

      Gina is a LEGEND! She won't apologize no matter how much leftist morons want her too. 21 light saber salute!

    64. TheAguyer89

      Aidy's cornrows effing KILL ME

    65. Emily Alexandra

      idk I need to see Pete to gru now

    66. Video Game Sanctuary

      Funny how people are talking shit about Gina without knowing that she can kick all their asses 😂😂😂

    67. David

      This show continues to be as unfunny and low level as usual. I feel bad for some of the actually talented actors that have to endure such shit writing.

      1. max

        Why do you watch it??? Are you being forced.

    68. Fran kky

      “And Im not trying to send people subliminal messages though my videos”

    69. Drem m

      SNL is part of the problem. Don’t think they won’t turn on you either.

    70. Alyssa Jackson

      The Britney is spot on!!!!

    71. sephalon1

      I like how the Cuomo stuff is about mis-counting the nursing home deaths instead of, you know, the fact that he's responsible for all those nursing home deaths. But SNL is basically the humor wing of the Democrat party so whatever.

    72. Joseph Wiesenfeld

      Wow pete's impression was amazing!

    73. KS Mongeau

      why goes gina sound like she`s from new york ? she was born in tx moved nev and now lives in cal...

    74. Brian Koller

      I feel cold as a fish. I'm OK no more clubs. If I was a Clark Bar I'd make you me Energy Star. Brian friend Koller

    76. reptilexcq2

      Fact: Ted Cruz is a woman.

      1. max

        You could be right.

    77. Ruben Karapetyan

      I need to see Pete play coumo again!

    78. Chinmay Purohit

      Good that SNL took the correct stance on Gina Carano

    79. Ghost Unlimited Gaming

      This show used to launch the careers of the funniest people who went on to be legendary comedians. Didn't matter who it was on the show, they were funny. Now, I imagine watching this show is kind of what hell would be like. Every moment is torture.

    80. DayvinDazone

      The comment section is full of comments saying how Chloe nailed the impression but I was just shaking my head the whole time thinking how wrong it was. The thing is, Britney is not an airhead and I don't blame Chloe for going that route because the public probably never watched a Britney interview in their life -- if they had, they would know that Britney only speaks in the baby voice in her Instagram videos which are highly rehearsed and she's obviously uncomfortable. That's not the real Britney. Britney usually speaks in a lower tone and she's not dumb. This stereotypical bimbo impersonation all actresses go for is a really lazy way imo since it satisfies everyone's expectations and gets the job done fast, but not well.

    81. Daisy A

      In reality, nursing homes admins are always pushing patients not to be nursing home deaths.

    82. Tomun 73

      SNL is not funny anymore. #Istandwithgina #Firekathleenkennedy

      1. Tomun 73

        @max i heard about the gina carano skit so i watched this POS. obvious if you paid attention to my hash tags slick.

      2. max

        Why do you watch it???

    83. bocoy noiu

      The braids are hysterically funny.

    84. Juicy Smooyay

      Yikes 😬

    85. Bob Jackson

      So, Biden's in a memory care center?

    86. EveN Texas

      I’ve got an old lady crush on Pete. Just sayIn.

      1. Lisa Alisa

        Crush . You mean like car 🚗 accident ? 😊

    87. Bognor Sir

      That Chloe Fineman her hands were shaking during this was very nervous.

      1. bocoy noiu

        Happy Thursgiving enjoy the turkey pie

    88. Pannam

      cuomo lied people died.

    89. superutuber100

      Peter's impression sounds like Frank Costanza.

    90. shameblamenamegame

      Brittney: That was funny! Who was that?

    91. R Bee

      Not sure what the Britney jabs were about...She isn't dumb. Bad look.

    92. Angela Luna

      “You are soup.” 🤣🤣🤣

    93. First Last

      Wow! SNL is totally covering up for Cuomo. He got in hot water because he placed infected elderly in nursing homes causing over 15,000 of deaths. He also refused to correct the problem because that would reveal what he did.

    94. Jacob Carrillo

      Who did you pray to?

    95. Teresa C

      What's "TRL"?

    96. Vic 2.0

      Of course Gina Carano *didn't* say that, but let's not let the truth get in the way of this "comedy".

    97. craig mahaney

      i really don't know why they think it's funny to have aidy bryant play men.She's funny but in my opinion it just doesn't work.Chloe was great as brittney though.

    98. Miguel Acosta

      semiran bien riducula

    99. Bianca Jade

      I hope they have this skit back on since the real people are giving them lots of material & Pete OWNED his Cuomo role. 👏😂🏆No longer a fan of Cuomo but if Cruz & him ever got in a fist fight my $$$$ is on Cuomo. Although a Cruz & Graham fight would just be hilarious I imagine lots of hair pulling 😂😂😂

    100. Jacob Rommel

      Cuomo messed up NYC
