"Saturday Night Live" hammered President Donald Trump for his lack of a clear plan to combat the spread of COVID-19, opening with a spoof of the last presidential debate.
With Alec Baldwin as Trump and Jim Carrey as former Vice President Joe Biden, the two candidates went head-to-head in the cold open. Maya Rudolph appeared as moderator Kristen Welker.
After performing as the musical guest twice – for the first time at the start of her career in 2008 – singer-songwriter Adele made her hosting debut.
In her opening monologue, the British star joked about her recent weight loss, saying that with new COVID traveling restrictions she could only bring "half of me, and this is the half I chose."
She also gave a glimpse into the timeline for her highly-anticipated fourth studio album, explaining she's not the musical guest because her new album "isn't finished."
R&B singer H.E.R. took the stage twice Saturday, performing hits "Damage" and "Hold On," for her first appearance on "SNL."
Although Adele was there to host the show, she sang some of her biggest hits, including "Hello" and "Rolling in the Deep," while playing a contestant in the segment "The Bachelor."
Meanwhile, "Weekend Update" anchors Colin Jost and Michael Che tackled the week's biggest news, including coronavirus cases increasing across the country.
For his part, Che spoke about Thursday's presidential debate, taking issue with the president's claim that he was the least racist person in the room during the debate. It was, he said, "Only something the most racist person in the room would say."
