“SNL” is back, now deep into its 46th season. The most recent new episode, which aired on Feb. 27, was hosted by Nick Jonas, who also acted as the musical guest. The cold open sketch saw cast member Aidy Bryant once again dress up as Ted Cruz for a game show in which contestants win the COVID-19 vaccine. Since Donald Trump lost the election and is now all the way out of office, Alec Baldwin very well might be done playing Trump. He hasn’t appeared since the episode immediately after the election in November — he held up a little “Thank you” sign at the end of it. But with Trump’s impeachment trial over — and once again making some TV appearances and speeches — it seems like it’s certainly possible he could pop back up on “SNL” at some point. Also Read: 'SNL': Aidy Bryant Plays Both Super Bowl Coaches in Cold Open (Video) This week, on Saturday, March 6, there WILL NOT be a new episode of “SNL.” After five straight new episodes in January and February, “SNL” is going to take a long break — it’ll return on March 27, when former cast member Maya Rudolph will host, likely with her Kamala Harris impression in tow. As is usually the case on off-weeks, NBC will air two “SNL” re-runs on Saturday. First, at 1o p.m. on both the east and west coasts, will be a re-air of the season 36 episode hosted by Miley Cyrus — this weekend will be the tenth anniversary of that episode, which originally aired on March 5, 2011. Then at 11:30 in the normal show slot, we’ll get a re-run of an episode from this current season. You can be pretty sure this season of “SNL” be very political for the full stretch. While it’s no longer an election year, somehow the tense political situation in the U.S. has managed to ramp up from the fever pitch it was at in 2020, thanks to the mob of terrorists who invaded the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. “SNL” will, as it always does, follow the discourse. Also Read: 'SNL' Cold Open Mocks Marjorie Taylor Greene's 'Jewish Space Lasers' Conspiracy Theory (Video) And, well, it’s tough to pass up having Aidy Bryant play Ted Cruz as often as possible. The premiere episode came out hard with political commentary, with the debate cold open, a very political monologue from Chris Rock, and a stunned discussion of Trump’s COVID-19 infection from Michael Che on Weekend Update. And “SNL” hasn’t slowed down with its political content, with each cold open in season 46 being about the election, its aftermath or, as we saw in the last episode, the COVID-19 vaccine. After that debate sketch in the premiere, we got two other debate sketches, one for the VP candidates and one other for the presidential candidates, as well as one about the dueling town halls from when Trump was infected with COVID-19 and refused to submit to safety measures. The show’s writers were obviously pleased with the election results as well — the cold open sketch in the episode after Election Day was certainly celebratory. That sketch also parodied the episode after the 2016 election in which Kate McKinnon took the stage as Hillary Clinton and played piano while singing “Hallelujah” — this time, Baldwin, as Trump, performed a mournful version of “Macho Man.” Also Read: 'SNL' Newsmax Sports Parody Perfectly Sums Up Pro-Trump Conspiracy Logic (Video) “SNL” tried to drift away from that political focus during season 44, but certainly didn’t shy away from politics in season 45 — a season in which the actual Elizabeth Warren popped up to play herself in a sketch. The renewed focus on politics in season 45 was not just about mocking Trump, but also lampooning the circus that was the run up to the Democratic primaries. Not that the sketch show has in any way shied away from mocking Trump. The impeachment has certainly been a common topic for cold open sketches this season. There was the one where Baldwin’s Trump went through his contacts list trying to find a fixer who could make the impeachment stop, ending with a call to Liev Schreiber playing himself — Trump thought his character Ray Donovan, a fixer on the eponymous Showtime series, was actually a real person. There was also that one where “SNL” sent up the impeachment hearings by doing a “Days of Our Lives” parody that starred Jon Hamm. As for the madness with the Democratic primary, we had numerous big cameos in the debate sketches in season 45. The show tried out multiple different Joe Bidens last year, with Woody Harrelson taking up the role a couple times and Jason Sudeikis giving it a shot as well. They also brought in many other celebs to play other candidates in the Dem primary, including Lin-Manuel Miranda as Julian Castro, Larry David as Bernie Sanders, Rachel Dratch as Amy Klobuchar, Fred Armisen as Michael Bloomberg, and Will Ferrell as Tom Steyer. Maya Rudolph also played Kamala Harris a few times, and it was only natural that they’d keep her around for season 46. That’s a lot of cameos, and “SNL” actually managed to jam nearly all of those folks into a single sketch — a 12-minute debate parody from a late November episode. Miranda did not appear in that one, but he had previously popped up as Castro in October in a parody of the Democrats’ LGBTQ town hall that was moderated by Billy Porter in character as himself.

Some Democratic members of Congress and national union leaders on Friday sought to rustle up support for unionizing a massive Amazon facility outside Birmingham, comparing Alabama workers’ organizing campaign to the civil rights movement. It’s the largest organizing attempt in Amazon’s history, carrying high stakes for the second-largest employer in the country, which has a record of crushing unionizing efforts at its warehouses and its Whole Foods grocery stores. The outcome is critical for Amazon and organized labor in general.
U.S. border agents detained nearly 100,000 migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border in February, according to two people familiar with preliminary figures, the highest arrest total for the month of February since 2006. The figures, which have not been previously reported, show the scope of a growing surge of migrants arriving at the southwest border as U.S. President Joe Biden, a Democrat, seeks to roll back some of the restrictive policies of former President Donald Trump, a Republican. The nearly 100,000 migrants detained at the U.S.-Mexico border in February would be a significant increase over 78,000 encountered in January.

Kim Kardashian on Friday called out those who bully and body- shame others, recalling her embarrassment when she was attacked for gaining 60 pounds during her first pregnancy. In an Instagram stories posting, Kardashian detailed how she had been compared to a killer whale during the later stages of her pregnancy in 2013, and how her figure was contrasted unfavorably to Prince William's wife Kate, who was also pregnant at the time. The cosmetics businesswoman and social media star said she was reminded of those months while watching a recent documentary about Britney Spears, tracing the meteoric rise of the pop star and the media coverage of her mental health breakdown in 2007.

The Mail on Sunday must publish a front-page statement declaring that Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, won a copyright lawsuit she filed against the paper for publishing a letter she wrote to her estranged father, a British judge ruled on Friday. As part of the statement, Associated Newspapers — which publishes the Mail on Sunday and Mail Online — must admit that it “infringed her copyright” by publishing portions of her letter. The statement must also run on Mail Online’s homepage for a week and include a hyperlink to the judge’s full ruling. The British paper “devoted a very considerable amount of space to the infringing articles, which it continued to publish for over 2 years. It has devoted a very considerable number of further column inches, and many hundreds if not thousands of words, to coverage of earlier stages of this litigation and commentary upon them. The wording sought is modest by comparison, and factual in nature,” Lord Justice Mark Warby wrote in his decision.

The qualifying schedule for the Tokyo Olympics has been seriously disrupted in the run-up to the Games, which were delayed a year due to the novel coronavirus, and numerous events have been cancelled or postponed as international federations grapple with the pandemic fallout. Fourteen places in the canoe sprint competition in Tokyo will be determined by the ICF after discussions with the International Olympic Committee (IOC). "The increased COVID cases in the region had prompted the local authorities to impose tougher restrictions, which meant COPAC (Pan American Canoe Federation) could not hold the event safely for the benefit of athletes and their teams and ensure a fair and equal opportunity for all athletes to qualify," the ICF said in a statement.
