As the democrats were wrapping up their debate on ABC, the GOP gathered on NBC, in the form of Saturday Night Live’s cold open.
And because CNN was in live coverage of the democratic debate, the real Wolf Blitzer reacted to the impression of him by SNL’s Jon Rudnitsky (who infamously played Anderson Cooper in October.)

Hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler and musical guest Bruce Springsteen gave SNL its second best outing in 22 months. (The Donald Trump-hosted show last month is still tops.) The show drew a 5.1 rating, 13 share in households in Nielsen’s metered markets. SNL was No. 1 for the night in the A18-49 demo in local people meters, including topping the Democratic debate on ABC.
