It’s Saturday and it’s time for another new and exciting episode of ‘Saturday Night Live’. Last week, the show was back from almost a month-long hiatus. The December 5 episode was hosted by actor Jason Bateman and the musical guest was Morgan Wallen. ‘SNL’ had released the December schedule of its shows and fans were excited to know that actor Timothée Chalamet would be making his ‘SNL’ debut tonight. And the musical guest was Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band.

In one of the skits – A Rona family Christmas – Chalamet played a rebellious coronavirus molecule that drank Purell and praised New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, which made him a disappointment to his parents – played by Beck Bennett and Cecily Strong – who had spent the year traveling from China to Italy to Florida. They even said, “How great is Florida!?” and said that the only leader they recognized in their household was Donald Trump because “he introduced us to everyone he knows, even after he was infected”. Chalamet’s molecule declares, “I’m getting the vaccine and blames his parents for his attitude. “Dad’s been so focused on the second wave he can’t even hear his first-born son crying out for help.”

Fans were discussing his sketch on Twitter as well. One said, “This “Rona Family Christmas” is like the last sketch of the night... weird and taking chances. But it’s the first one. It’s weird and funny!  #SNL #SNLChristmas @nbcsnl.” Another said, “Hahaha! That “A Rona Family Christmas” sketch is so funny! The family is trying to do their plans of celebrating the holidays despite the COVID-19 pandemic.” One tweeted, “#SNL @nbcsnl  The Rona Family Chirstmas? (Noticed the typo - Christmas) was a riot!  Loved all the political play on words!  Brilliant writing.” Another declared, “The only Rona I want to catch is timothèe as a corona germ.” One said, “#SNL took a while to get up to speed this year, but “A Rona Family Christmas” just now had me flashing back to some of the brilliant and ridiculous sketches of the past.” One said, “Okay that rona family christmas sketch on SNL was so good.” Another said, "Covid skit on SNL tonight was hilarious however I feel like they missed a real opportunity by not having Timothee Chalamet be chlamydia."

But there were others who did not agree. One said, "#snl I guess Hollywood and New York are allowed to joke about covid. But if someone on Fox or Trump does it they get ripped for not taking the virus seriously." Another said, ""Maybe now isn't a good time." - covid. Yeah maybe so #snl maaaybe not a good time at all." One said, "So far, its been the worst #snl this season. Yikes. The Ronas skit, wow, how immature, 3000 Americans died of Covid today, and the idiots think infection is funny? Tiny Horse was just dumb. Dear God, they get paid for this???????"
