The teaser shows a rack of costumes, a shot of Carrey slipping on a silvery wig and a shot of Rudolph's suit, then a quick shot of the two in full wardrobe. 

After this week's contentious debate between Biden and President Trump, it's a sure bet the show will address that event. And remember, the Vice-Presidential debate is coming up soon as Harris will debate Vice President Mike Pence on Wednesday, October 7.
