'SNL' Cut a Sketch About Ferguson's Morning News
The skit features Cecily Strong and Kenan Thompson as reluctant anchors on a perky news program called "Rise & Smile," and it reminds me a lot of a skit that aired around the time of 9/11. In that sketch, small business owners complained of losing clients because the news tarnished the names of their companies. Will Ferrell played the grizzled president of a scoop manufacturing firm called "Ol' Sammy's Bin Ladles." You get the picture.
Watch as Strong and Thompson suffer through similarly awkward shenanigans here.
