SNL: Michael Keaton Pays Tribute to Batman, Beetlejuice

Plus: The show bashes Scientology

Liz Raftery

Saturday Night Livewent for bizarre humor this weekend, with Michael Keaton at the helm. The sketches included an uncomfortably funny (and long) bit about a high school student taking his teacher to prom, and a musical homage to Batman and Beetlejuice in Keaton's opening monologue.

Elsewhere in the episode, the show hopped on the Scientology-bashing bandwagon, and also brilliantly skewered CNN's news coverage.

Check out highlights below:

Michael Keaton monologue: Taran Killam and Bobby Moynihan crash Keaton's opening monologue to try and convince him to play Batman and Beetlejuice with them.

CNN Newsroom: CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin (Cecily Strong) covers current events including the Germanwings plane crash and Indiana's religious freedom law, with the help of visual aids including a dance troupe.

Prom queen: Isn't pedophilia hilarious? The episode's most uncomfortable (and not very funny) sketch features a popular high school student (Mike O'Brien) taking his teacher to prom.

Neurotology music video: This perfect parody of Scientology features members of "Neurotology" singing the religion's praises (literally).

Weekend Update: The Walking Dead: Norman Reedus stops by "Weekend Update," in which Resident Young Person Pete Davidson discusses the season finale of The Walking Dead.
