The TV icon took the stage and addressed a recent controversy surrounding the show. “A group representing the American family” was calling on people to boycott SNL because the word “penis” was used 28 times in a recent sketch featuring Matthew Broderick.
“It’s a little awkward for me because, throughout my career, I’ve been associated with the best in family entertainment,” said Moore. “But I’m from the school of show business that says when you give your word you’ll do something, you do it.”

She proceeds to guarantee that said bad word would not be used that night. But, you’ll have to watch the entire monologue below to see if she manages to keep that promise:
