"Saturday Night Live" had plenty of scandalous news items to work with this week. So how did they squeeze them all in them? The NBC sketch show threw all of them into the cold open, and hoped for the best.
When the first "SNL" of 2013 opened with Taran Killam as Piers Morgan, we almost expected to see a spoof of his interview with Alex Jones, but instead, the sketch blasted through three of the biggest stories of the last week: Lance Armstrong's admission of doping, Manti Te'o's fake girlfriend, and Jodie Foster's enigmatic Golden Globes speech.
