'SNL' features history-making host Tiffany Haddish, performances from Taylor Swift

13 November 2017, 02:07 | Max Haynes

Another question referenced Alabama Senate GOP candidate Roy Moore, who has been accused of sexual conduct with teens.

Haddish made it to the big time this summer with the hit comedy Girls Trip (which, truth be told, might be the funniest movie of 2017), and with her landmark moment on SNL, she definitely chose to make her mark.

"It's hard to convince people you're not into young girls when you're dressed like Woody from Toy Story", Bennett-Pence says.

"She says it's for her CAT-aracts!" adds Haddish.

Haddish's opening monologue was a breath of fresh air after last week's lack-luster, poorly received Larry David monologue. Her panic is understandable when you realize she's playing an HR rep trying desperately to stay ahead of the wave (after wave, after wave) of sexual harassment and assault cases crowding the news. She then went on to talk about her last visit there and how they were talking about President Donald Trump's hair and the sexual harassment allegations that have been surfacing lately.

The Red Sox, meanwhile, are prepared to increase payroll, even to the point of exceeding the luxury tax threshold. An MLB source also told Spencer that Boston is "definitely in play" as a potential destination for Stanton.


Her most memorable character probably was Boo Boo Jeffries, a fighter in a Mortal Kombat-type game who's all fierce bluster but no fists. I mean, why can't it be that because we have a mental health problem, we now have a gun situation?

Watch Tiffany Haddish's monologue above.

She played Cardi B in one of the show's impression-filled faux-audition reels, this time around for Lion King, with Leslie Jones' Oprah, Cecily Strong's Lin-Manuel Miranda and Alex Moffat's Kit Harington, among others.

For many, of course, the musical guest of the evening was also a draw-in, as Taylor Swift came on to perform two songs from her new album Reputation, including her radio hit "Ready for It?" and her emotionally evocative single "Call It What You Want".
