fake NRA commercial (2nd skit, after tom brokaw) and they shoot the afflek duck- a fake duck comes apart violently.

no animals are shot when a second version of the skit happens mid-episode (after brian fellow’s safari planet)

sketch about a 12 year old girl whose breasts have developed looking too “mature” to be an actress on a children’s show. adult actress playing the 12 year old, but there are child actors in the scene too. lots of jokes about her breasts for the audience, but within the sketch two adult men are the main characters interacting with the child and focusing on her breasts.

surprisingly realistic graphic visual around 8:00 during derek jeter’s monologue after he hits the guy 3x with a baseball. the actor definitely has a hidden hose and you can tell it’s fake but it was more triggering than anything i expected to see on SNL

this happens a few more times in coming episodes. it’s so graphically fake i didnt bother noting it

there are lots of skits that feature babies as dolls or fake pregnant women as the focus, as well as pre-filmed “commercials” with real babies. Ana Gastayer is pregnant during part of season 27 and her pregnancy is the focus of a handful of skits

there is a LOT of mild to moderate racism in SNL, as well as mockery & misrepresentation of disabled people, mental illness, addiction, etc

the reason i watch this show is exposure to be desensitized to sexual content triggers. it is pervasive. mostly verbal jokes but there is plenty of the actors doing physical actions to each other, often unwanted.

common joke here or there scattered throughout the show.

particularly bad whole sketch with Tracy Morgan and Lorne Michaels trying to manipulate, coerce, and/or trick Sarah Michelle Gellar and Faith Hill into doing a porny girl-on-girl wrestling match, that they are both clearly disinterested in doing and asking the men to stop pressuring them.
