"SNL" Pokes Fun At CBS With Super Bowl Blackout Spoof
NBC’s “SNL” opened last night's episode with a spoof of CBS' coverage of the Super Bowl XLVII power outage. Taran Killam, playing the role of CBS’ Steve Tasker, said, “Not much new to report JB, the lights went out and now they're trying to get them back on. ... As a favor I’d like to ask that you not come back to me because I have nothing to add, back to you JB.” Jay Pharoah as CBS' Shannon Sharpe: "This is only conjecture, but if I’m out there and there’s been no power for 20 minutes, I start to think, who on this team are we going to eat first?" (“SNL,” NBC, 2/9).
