Watch 3 1/2 Minutes Of Kerry Washington 'SNL' Promos

Well, at least, during this episode of Saturday Night Live, we know who’ll be playing most of the black women characters written into any skits.

This Saturday, November 2Kerry Washington will make her Saturday Night Live hosting debut. That’s right, it’ll be the very first time she’s ever hosted the late-night variety series, likely due to a surge in her popularity, thanks to the hit show she stars in, Scandal, which garnered her an Emmy Award nomination this year.

Eminem will return for his sixth appearance as musical guest, with his new album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2, set for release on November 5.

Has SNL ever spoofed Scandal? If not, I’ll be expecting one this Saturday night. 

I actually might tune in this time, if only to see what they do with Kerry and how well she performs.

Watch 3+ minutes of promo footage for the episode below, featuring Washington and SNL regular Taran Killam:

Looking forward to SNL and I haven't said that in a long time.


Kerry Washington is this generation Diahann Carroll.


My favorite is the "Ooooh Scandal" bit. I may have to check out SNL. I'm in love with Kerry but I've never seen scandal. I don't really watch TV though.


So that guy was making the jokes and she was just being Kerry.

Isn't the host supposed to be in control?

I don't watch the show but the last preview I caught of Edward Norton. He was definitely in control.

I dunno… She seems relegated to a pretty prop.

Also, she's pregnant. Irrelevant but cute information. :)


Well, looks like Kenan may not have anyone to play since there is an actual black woman on SNL this week.


Keep calm and Kerry on. Love her.
