Last week, Saturday Night Live mentioned Occupy Wall Street during Weekend Update. Now, after the city backed down from cleaning Zuccotti Park, SNL decided to spoof Mayor Bloomberg's response to OWS during its cold open. Bloomberg, played by Fred Armisen, explained to America that the protesters had to be removed because all NYC streets are regularly power-washed. He also gave the addresses of some rich New Yorkers and said that the NYPD will only really get tough if anyone tries smoking in this city.
The host was comic actress Anna Faris, who sent up her dizzy blonde personality in the monologue, and the musical guest was Drake, who appeared in multiple sketches (Nicki Minaj was his guest during his second song, too).
