Tonight marked the first episode of Saturday Night Live of the New Year as Drake comes to Rockefeller Center to kick things off. But before Drake can stop by, the opening sketch needed to take place and so far this season, the cold opens have be hit or miss.
After getting the season off to a great start with the cold opens, the show sort of fell off a bit with the cold opens and the jokes were either rushed or sort of stale. The question we all had was how would the cold open go in the first show back in 2014?
The opening sketch jumped all over the ongoing ‘Bridge-gate’ with New Jersey governor Chris Christie. Bobby Moynihan reprised his role as Gov. Christie and proceeded to threaten Piers Morgan for questioning him about the scandal.
Drake also appeared as Alex Rodriguez who claimed that autocorrect was the source of his problems with Tony Bosch and the Biogenesis steroids scandal.
The opening sketch wasn’t the best we’ve seen all season long, but it definitely got the season off to a nice start.
