This week's episode, which featured host Melissa McCarthy's return as White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, averaged a 2.7 rating in adults 18-49 and 10.3 million viewers, according to Nielsen overnight data.

The FBI is investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 USA election and it has been reported that Comey sought more resources to investigate links between Russia and Trump's campaign.

"Your staff has been saying all week that you didn't fire him because of his Russian investigation?" asks Holt, to which Trump admits he fired Comey "because of Russia".

"Can you just do this full time?" the press pool reporters plead. Recent reports have questioned Spicer's job security. "You are articulate and charming, whereas Sean is bullish", a reporter adds. The Comey debacle is just the latest example of how Spicer handled himself poorly while fielding questions on why Trump fired the former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief. Spicer is also shocked at the notion that "his friend" Trump could be lying to him, and the sketch ends on a surprising note. McCarthy once again brought comic spice plus Spicer to "Saturday Night Live". Reynolds replied, "You invited us".

"I guess the L.A Times said that somebody had seen one alongside the highway down by Santa Monica, and some other guy went over in Washington D.C. and got his picture outside the Watergate hotel", Kadonaga told The Canadian Press Sunday night.

Next week is the show's season finale, with Baldwin already locked down to play Trump.

The sketch began with Aidy Bryant playing Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who had been giving White House press briefings last week, leading to speculation that she's being auditioned to replace Spicer.
