(Newser) – The jokes pretty much wrote themselves for Saturday Night Live this week, thanks in no small part to Toronto's crack mayor, Rob Ford. With Bobby Moynihan appearing as the oft-apologizing Hizzoner in a series of press conferences in which he utterly fails in his mea culpas, Ford eventually turns to the lone media outlet who will believe that he's never done drugs: 60 Minutes' Lara Logan, aka Kate McKinnon. Another sketch of note: guest host Lady Gaga, playing a nerdy Apple employee, utterly owns Jay Pharoah's Kanye West and Vanessa Bayer's Kim Kardashian. It's in the gallery.

That was brilliant comedy, but of course the source material practically wrote it for SNL. I say it's a coin toss between Stephen Colbert's skit skewering Logan/60 Minutes early this week http://www.colbertnation.com/the-colbert-report-videos/430355/november-11-2013/-60-minutes--benghazi-controversy & SNL last night :)
