What 'SNL' did to keep its cast on edge for election

“SNL” teamed up with Funny Or Die for a little sketch game show called ” Republican or Not ,” but this time around the team went one step further. The spin-off of the popular mash-up game show “Hmmm … Wanna Bet?” decided to go one step beyond the existing political set-up by casting the show’s cast as Republican operatives battling to host a show on Fox News.

“Now they’re willing to admit to being Democrats,” remarked Kate McKinnon in character as Caitlin. McKinnon played a varied range of characters in her introduction to the show. Some showcased the actress’ skills at fitting in easily as part of the regular cast, others were clearly out of her depth.

A-level “SNL” performers Kenan Thompson and Alex Moffat proved to be the most natural in their roles, often going head-to-head in an amusingly dramatic interview between the conservative cable commentator Bill O’Reilly and Murphy’s “boxers or briefs” question.

The special lived up to its billing, with some of the show’s highest-profile cast members taking on minor roles in the spoofs. McKinnon also appeared as a female version of Republican Paul Ryan, but the highlight was the questionable guest list that helped make up the game show.
