Saturday Night Live's first post-election episode featured plenty of political humor and just one jab at Petraeus.

Really love Anne Hathaway in anything she does and enjoyed The Legend of Mokiki and the Sloppy Swish but had a mega sense of Déjà vu ‘cause of how much it reminded me Leos Carax’s short film “Merde” on the compilation movie Tokyo.

I was really glad to see the return of the musical digital shorts because those were the best thing on the show while Sandburg was around.  I agree that this one didn’t quite live up to the old ones, but it was still really funny and catchy.  I was talking to a coworker at DISH about the bit, and he was saying that they should have had Rihanna instead of Anne in the sketch.  That would have been amazing and could have brought it to the level of the old digital shorts.  I missed the show because I was out last night, but thankfully my Hopper from DISH recorded it for me.  I love that I can record the whole season without worrying about storage space on my hard drive.  I wonder if we will be getting more bits like this with the conclusion of the election; if so this is a promising start!
