The most recent “Saturday Night Live” episode took aim at President Joe Biden’s low approval ratings amid his vaccine mandate policy. 

The episode was hosted by former castmember Jason Sudeikis and featured musical guest Brandi Carlile. 

Aside from the political jabs, an old character returned to the “Weekend Update” segment and made some surprising confessions

Here are some of the notable sketches from the fourth episode of “SNL” Season 47.

Cold Open

The comedy sketch show kicked off the night by diving into Biden’s bad poll numbers, criticism over his policies, and disagreements within the democratic party.

Biden, who was played by “SNL” cast member James Austin Johnson, couldn’t understand why people no longer liked him.

“I don’t understand,” he said. “People used to like me. The press would call me Uncle Joe. I miss the old me. Where the hell did that guy go?”

Sudeikis then appeared as the old Biden from his days serving as vice president under Barack Obama. “I’m you from eight years ago, man. The ghost of Biden past. Boo!” Sudeikis said.

Johnson’s Biden was surprised that his old self was so carefree. Sudeikis revealed it was because he was still “lucid.”

“Easiest gig in the world. We’re like America’s wacky neighbor, you know? Just pop in with some ice cream cones, some aviator shades, just finger guns, you know, shake a few hands, rub a few shoulders,” Sudeikis explained.

However, Johnson explained that shaking hands and rubbing shoulders isn’t allowed in the present day. 

Before Sudeikis returned to 2013, he told Johnson “flash those 100% natural choppers we’ve got and remember, we may be from different eras, but at the end of the day, we’re both Joe freaking Biden.”

Weekend Update

Sudeikis reprised his role as the Devil to update “SNL” viewers about what he’s been up to. “Last few years have been pretty good for little ol’ Beelzebub,” he told Colin Jost, a co-anchor.

The Devil revealed he has been busy working on “little side projects," including “earthquakes,” “killer storms,” and “Instagram for kids.” 

Sudeikis also took credit for the unseasonably warm temperatures. “I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I’ve been making things up here feel more like where I’m from,” he said. 

“I mean, have you ever been to Florida? That’s not that different from Hell…It’s people in their hundreds, and the temperatures are also in the hundreds.”

When Jost asked the Devil if he created QAnon, Sudeikis demanded Jost take back his question and issued a threat.

“Or I swear. I’ll go back on my deal to let you marry Scarlett [Johansson],” he said. “You baby trapped her! I don’t know who screwed her more, you or Disney.”


Sudeikis put a spin on daytime television by becoming the male version of Ellen DeGeneres. The "Mellen" show is a daytime talk show that appeals to men with a “hard masculine edge.”

Instead of featuring the inspiring kids that typically appear on DeGeneres’ show, Mellen has on kids who slap their teachers to get famous on TikTok.

Mellen also had surprise giveaways and gave audience members free wet towels to whip each other with.

The host also had special guests, including basketball player Kyrie Irving, who was played by Chris Redd. During a “sneak surprise” segment, Mellen had a doctor vaccinate the NBA star. 

Other guests included parodies of Joe Rogan, Conor McGregor, and Jake Paul. The Mellen show was sponsored by Peyronie’s disease, a male genital issue.

Actor Kieran Culkin will host the next episode of "Saturday Night Live," with Ed Sheeran as the musical guest. 

It is unclear if Sheeran will still perform after announcing he tested positive for COVID-19, hours after his upcoming appearance on the show was revealed.
