Kerry Washington and Jay Pharoah
With Scandal star Kerry Washington hosting this week, Saturday Night Live took the opportunity to have a little fun at its own expense.
The episode built its entire first sketch around the concept that Washington would be tasked with playing Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey and Beyonce all in the same skit — a winking reference to Kenan Thompson's recent comments about the lack of women of color on SNL.

Halloween scared away most viewers Thursday.
Scandal topped a down night overall with 9.2 million viewers and a 2.9 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, on par with last week. ABC's annual broadcast of It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (7 million, 2.2) improved more ...

You were maybe expecting monsters on Halloween? Less than a week after NBC so disastrously attempted to "re-imagine" Dracula, cable's Sundance Channel scores again — in a year that has already given us the exceptional Top of the Lake and Rectify — by subtly yet audaciously flipping the zombie thriller in the eight-part French import The Returned (with English subtitles). In this quietly creepy and profoundly unsettling supernatural mystery (Thursday, 9/8c), the undead are portrayed not as Walking Dead-style flesh-eaters but as deeply and unmistakably flesh-and-blood human.
Kerry Washington is reportedly pregnant, according to Us Weekly.
Washington, 36, is said to be about four months along. An email to Washington's rep was not immediately returned.
The Scandal actress surprised her friends and co-workers over the summer when she married NFL player Nmandi Asomugha in Idaho. The two had kept their romance out of the spotlight.

Thursday's episode of Scandal introduced two new duos that should make for great TV: Jake Ballard (Scott Foley) and Huck (Guillermo Diaz) make up the best new bromance, while Mellie (Bellamy Young) and Josie Marcus (Lisa Kudrow) are now apparently enemies, which will make for an interesting campaign season.
