'SNL' Cast Reflects on How Terrible and Weird the COVID Year Was in Cold Open (Video)

Chris Rock also shows up to mock Trump for catching COVID


For the final cold open of the 2020-2021 season, “SNL” departed from the usual kind of sketch mocking either politics or something from current events. Instead, the cast gathered to reflect on what a weird, terrible, and sometimes hilarious the COVID-19 pandemic year has been. You can watch the whole clip above.

But before that came the often genuinely touching cold open, which looked back on everything from the “SNL” at home episodes last spring, to the trials and self-inflicted tribulations of country singer Morgan Wallace, to all the horribleness with the election, and Trump’s attempt to overthrow the government.
