SNL Rips on Newt Gingrich, NFL, Guy Fieri, and More

by Dan Koelsch

NBC’s Saturday Night Live had a new episode last night featuring Channing Tatum as host. There were plenty of TV and movie-related skits, so see them all after the break.

While I think the 1950s space movie theme worked well, SNL went a bit hard on Republican Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich in the following sketch.

This NBC Football Promo sketch is kind of funny at first, but I think they missed an opportunity with the premise.

Secret Word, a recurring sketch that is a parody of Password. The sketch is always solid, if not starting to wear thin.

The Super Bowl is today, and Guy Fieri has some ideas for your party.

There are of course many more skits from the show, so go to NBC.com to see the rest.
