Presidential candidate John McCain made an appearance on Saturday Night Live last Saturday (1st November).
TV Guide’s review of the episode says “They wasted no time putting McCain to use, as he was joined by Tina as Palin (!) to make their last-minute plea to voters while hawking products on QVC. Apparently the campaign, as Tina points out, spent a little too much money on Palin’s clothes and couldn’t afford to match Sen. Obama’s three-network infomercial”.
Actor Ben Affleck was the guest host on the show and American Idol star David Cook performed.
There is a two hour special show tonight (3rd November) on the eve before the US Election. The two hour special is called the SNL Presidential Bash 2008 and special guests will make appearances on the show. The two hour special will air at 9/8c on Monday 3rd November on NBC.
