With the Presidential election now decided, Saturday Night Live used its cold open as an ode to one of their favorite punching bags of the past year — Mitt Romney.



The cold open began with Romney (Jason Sudeikis) sneaking milk (gasp!) on the balcony the night of the election. Periodically his family came out to check on him, including Taran Killiam, who played three of Romney’s sons without ever changing wardrobe. “Mother sent me to come get you, father,” Killiam said at one point. “Paul Ryan is doing feats of strength in the drawing room. She thought you’d like to see.”

“Yeah, well I’d like to see him carry Wisconsin!” Sudeikis yelled. Later, when Bobby Moynihan-as-Carl Rove asked for $300 million, Sudeikis threw him off the balcony.



In accordance with her scene-stealing reputation, Kate McKinnon-as-Ann Romney elicited one of the biggest laughs of the skit when Sudeikis gave her a peck on the cheek and she exclaimed, “My oh my! What has gotten into you?”



The remainder of the episode was anchored by all-world host Anne Hathaway and musical guest Rihanna, who performed two of her songs, "Stay" and "Diamonds." The episode mocked the HBO drama, Homeland, with Hathaway as the uptight Claire Danes. "Weekend Update" with Seth Meyers was also on point, making use of a hilarious week in news, taking jabs at Paula Broadwell’s recent affair with general David Petraeus, saying her biography of Petraeus, All In, was originally going to be called, Just the Tip.



Next Saturday, Jeremy Renner will host with Maroon 5 as musical guest. Saturday Night Live airs on NBC at 11:30 p.m. EST. —Hal Sundt
