Alan Dershowitz, Jeffrey Epstein, and Satan himself all got to hang around in Hell on Saturday night, at least in Saturday Night Live's version of events, starring Jon Lovitz, Adam Driver, and Kate McKinnon, respectively. When the Devil asks Dershowitz, currently representing President Trump and who formerly represented Epstein, if there's anyone he wouldn't represent, he responds, “If someone is famous enough to get me on TV, it’s all good." "I used to let nobodies into Hell, but now it’s all influencers," McKinnon responds. Also appearing in Hell: The guy who wrote "Baby Shark," Flo from Progressive, Mark Zuckerberg doing IT support, Mr. Peanut, and Mitch McConnell getting a sauna. It's Driver's third time as guest host, notes the A/V Club, and this one is finally the winner. In his monologue, "Driver took hold of his complicatedly prickly reputation and poked it cannily, acting the hell out of trying not to act." (More Adam Driver stories.)
