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

But McCarthy makes it work wonderfully by using her wonderful talents as a physical comedian.

The expectations going into the latest Melissa McCarthy-hosted Saturday Night Live were sky high - too high for the show to ever live up to.

Spicer is seen rolling through New York in search for Trump to the sound of Simon and Garfunkel's The Only Living Boy In New York. McCarthy ends the sketch with the line, "I had a good run!" John McCain (R-Ariz.) lobbed at his approach to foreign policy in a recent New York Times op-ed. But who can blame her? Watch the full Tillerson interview below; Todd brings up the McCain article around the 10-minute mark.

"Are you trolling us?"

McCarthy kicked things off by paying tribute to Mother's Day in her opening monologue, giving a shout-out to some of the many moms in the audience. "They haven't had a hot meal in years".

When Saturday Night Live released a trailer featuring Melissa McCarthy singing and dancing to "I Feel Pretty" from West Side Story, we didn't exactly picture the transformation that then took place. "Oh, my God! Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively", McCarthy exclaimed.

After a few trademark violent "Spicy" outbursts, the press secretary took up the defense of President Donald Trump against accusations that he fired FBI Director James Comey in an effort to obstruct the investigation into Trump's ties to Russian Federation.

China, US reach agreement on beef, poultry and natural gas
But Sun Lin, a 33-year-old chef at a high-end Beijing hotel, said he viewed the trade deal as merely a diplomatic gesture. The deficit with China represented about 60 percent of last year's total deficit of $500.6 billion.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, played by Aidy Bryant, stomped to the White House press briefing room to speak to reporters, confirming that she's daughter of Governor Huckabee and "a big Southern hamburger" and "Yes, obviously I'm as hilarious as my daddy". The Washington Post reported that Spicer "huddled with his staff near a clump of bushes and then behind a tall hedge" on the White House grounds to avoid reporters. It would be the mistake not only because Spicer was there from the beginning, but also because a tough front of the White House would be removed at the criticism of the liberal Trump's critics. That was literally the joke for the entire sketch - no matter what Marcie did, she got hit with a pie.

While no David S. Pumpkins, McCarthy took on some brilliantly stupid physical comedy in the Press Your Luck parody game show, Just Desserts! I laughed so hard I nearly fell off the couch.

Alec Baldwin (right) reprised his role as President Donald Trump alongside McCarthy as Spicer.

"Sean, kiss me", says Baldwin's Trump.

A long, weird pre-tape about the "marriage" of Kyle Mooney and Leslie Jones that was worth it to see Colin Jost be shot in the leg, and SNL creator Lorne Michaels' blase reaction to it. "But I mean, Colin can be annoying".

"Trump is innocent", McCarthy's Spicer proclaims about the president's connection to Russian Federation.

Next week is the show's season finale, with Baldwin already locked down to play Trump.
