On this weekend’s broadcast of NBC’s “Saturday Night Live,” the show took aim at one of its favorite targets: Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends.”

The skit kicked off with the three hosts taking on President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address from earlier in the week.

“Well on Tuesday, President Obama gave his State of the Union address, and it was a doozy,” Taran Killam’s Steve Doocy said.

“Isn’t this man supposed to be a great speaker?”  Vanessa Bayer’s Gretchen Carlson asked. “Then how come only half the people were clapping? I mean this was a full-frontal assault on our values.”

“He didn’t wear pants?” Bobby Moynihan’s Brian Kilmeade said.

The skit also featured a guest appearance by Ted Nugent played by the show’s Bill Hader, who was asked by Killam’s Doocy what it was like being on hand for the State of the Union.

“Frankly Steve, it was hard to sit still,” Hader’s Nugent said. “You know, partly because of what Obama was saying, and partly because my goatee is full of ticks.”

The same three parodied the Fox News Channel show several times last year.
