Newswire: Melissa McCarthy’s Sean Spicer returns to SNL with an ill-advised Passover lesson
Saturday Night Live‘s ratings success this season has sometimes felt like it’s come at the expense of the show’s able ensemble cast, as big name guest stars keep taking up airtime and getting all the morning-after press. Which, okay, is what’s happening here too, but last night’s lackluster Jimmy Fallon-hosted episode didn’t have all that much to recommend it as water cooler talk. (Or “whatever communal drink container people gather around on Easter Sunday” talk, as the case may be.) And any time four-time host and resident Sean Spicer Melissa McCarthy drops by to yell at everyone and lie like no one’s watching, it’s worth a second look.
