Saturday Night Live Makes History with Tiffany Haddish, Blasts Sexual Predators

She opened the show with a monologue that addressed the recent wave of sexual assault allegations in the news, including most recently against Louis CK.

Without specifically naming him, she offered a "tip" to others who might considering behaving the way he admittedly did to around several other women, saying, "Listen fellas, if you've got your thing-thing out, and she's got all her clothes on, you're wrong".

Tiffany Haddish made history last night when she became the first black female comedian to host Saturday Night Live-and now I wish she would host every weekend.

She then added, "Wait till she take her own clothes off and then pull your thing-thing out". You're in the wrong!

In adults 18-49, possibly boosted by the appearance of pop star Tyler Swift who performed songs from her new album, SNL posted a 1.9 rating in the markets with local people meters, up a tenth from last week. When Swift replies that they aren't, Haddish asks if they can just pretend that they are, to which Swift responds with a resounding "absolutely!" Haddish spies a big red button on a wall with a sign that heeds the warning: "Do not push". If you're familiar with the format, you know what you're in for: Cats with unusual backgrounds (like believing they are Darth Vader), McKinnon getting felt up during the sales pitch and the bulk of the feline co-stars not always behaving like angels.
