Saturday Night Live - Season 42

Despite the petitions to halt him, Donald Trump is still set to host Saturday Night Live this week, and the promos for the hosting stint hint at what’s to come. Spoilers: A lot of FCC equal-time jokes.

Trump appears alongside SNL cast member Cecily Strong for most of the promos — when time allows, of course — foola a few castmembers into thinking he wants them as his vice presidential running mate, and reminda you of how great he is. Sadly, not a single Apprentice joke is in sight, though perhaps all of the writers are saving that material for the actual show.
