Melissa McCarthy adds spice (and Spicer) as host of 'SNL'

SNL and McCarthy are not missing an opportunity to get fans revved up for her performance during a week of political bombshells.

"Have you ever told me to say things that aren't true?" You could just feel it in the room.

It's also the number two episode of the season in total viewers, behind only the February 11 edition, which drew 10.8 million and featured host Alec Baldwin, and the number three episode of the season in the key demo, behind only the February 11 episode and the November 12 episode with host Dave Chappelle. "Let's make it happen'".

One sketch featured McCarthy as the hot-tempered Spicer commandeering his motorized podium through the streets of midtown Manhattan - a sequence spotted by the media on Friday while it was being filmed.

In fact, McCarthy played Farley's famed Matt Foley character on SNL for the 2015 40th-anniversary episode. When she appeared on "Weekend Update", Fey introduced her: "Oh, it's just Melissa McCarthy doing her favorite character!" "Sean, come on, I would never do that", says "Trump".

"Here's something I made this afternoon".

Sublette told her "it was more about the attitude - the bombast and the anger". But I get two scoops, OK?

"Only since you started working here", Baldwin's Trump responded.

And while "SNL" writers anxious that it would be too soon to bring her back the following week, there was more to tackle: A new controversy erupted over the White House response to Nordstrom dropping Ivanka Trump apparel line.

The impersonation still draws viewers.

The show began with Alec Baldwin reprising his impersonation of U.S. President Donald Trump.

"Saturday Night Live" continued its ratings winning streak this week, with the most recent episode delivering the most-watched May telecast of the series in the past seven years, Variety said.

The cutout was inspired by a report last week that White House press secretary Sean Spicer was spotted hiding in the bushes from reporters, while another White House staffer conducted interviews, after Donald Trump fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey on Thursday.

Sublette told THR that the show didn't have a shortage of potential "Spicers". "In fact, he reads Spicer for the read-through because Melissa's not usually there".
