Melissa McCarthy’s ‘SNL’ monologue was the cutest moment in the show’s history
Melissa McCarthy hosted Saturday Night Live on May 13, the evening before Mother’s Day 2017. And since she didn’t have her own mom there at the show, McCarthy treated Joan, a random audience member (also, a mother,) to a tour of the show’s backstage area.
It’s funny, sure, but more than that: it is adorable. McCarthy ferrying a visibly overwhelmed Joan through the hustle and bustle of a live TV show’s working area — llama and all — has to be one of the cutest moments in the weekly comedy series’ 42 seasons.
