Between Alec BaldwinArrested Friday because he allegedly beaten a man in a street in New York City and Pete Davidson / Ariana Grande Sage was on the verge of this episode of Saturday night live, But when Balduin's Trump remained out of the cold and Davidson may have learned that jokes about his breakup had an expiration date, references to both dramas had to be included in the show's earliest moments.

First came Baldwin, at the very end of the cold, in the Kate McKinnon repeated her role as Laura Ingraham participate in the intermediate elections. McKinnon-as-Ingraham threw her show on the commercial and asked viewers to join in "an update on the nefarious actor Alec Baldwin, who molested a young boy scout here – along with a shot of Baldwin Adam Sandler in the 1994 sketch "Canteen Boy". It's a fun looking for a longtime friend of the show and also perfect for a Fox News presenter.

Balduin could have been an embarrassing absence in the first monologue sketch in which host Jonah Hill was welcomed in the five-member host club, but the concept took care of it – Hill was welcomed by Tina Fey, Candice Bergen, and Drew Barrymore, all three of the four female members of the club. (Scarlett Johansson, Who hosted for the fifth time last year, was the only one who was missing. "The men are not allowed in now, because it turns out they're all a bunch of horny perverts," Fey explained, though the potshots of the actual members of the club were pretty bland. (Justin Timberlake was called for Janet Jackson Super Bowl thing, Steve Martin for unacceptable banjo game; certainly to everyone's relief, Louis C.K. hosted only four times.)

So where did Davidson fit in? Ask for another drink – provided by Kenan Thompson, Who said, "This is my show, I'll leave." you in sometimes "mountains" asked for another Pete Davidson. "A Pete Davidson since you asked," I just know it's busy, but it's still doing the work. "A joke came out about an hour after Grande released a Surprise Single, which directed to Davidson directly, it worked pretty well.

During a later appearance on the Weekend Update, Davidson himself appeared on the breakup for a surprisingly serious address – with an extra message. "You're probably wondering about the split, but the truth is that it's nobody's business. She is a wonderful, strong person and I sincerely wish her all the luck in the world, "he said. "Vote now on Tuesday."
