Kelly and Michael flamed on 'SNL'

The new morning team gets spoofed on 'Saturday Night'

Kelly and Michael flamed on ‘SNL’

 How was your weekend, Kelly? We got to find out in the opening skit on Saturday Night Live as the show spoofed the sunny new morning team on Live! With Kelly and Michael.

SNL’s Vanessa Bayers and Jay Pharoah played Ripa and Strahan as almost dementedly perky and upbeat. Check for instance their trenchant analysis of the Emmy Awards.

My personal favorite from the night – perhaps because I hate the commercial campaign it was mocking so much – was host Joseph Gordon-Levitt as ”the son of the most interesting man in the world” for Tres Equiis Beer.
