We are mere hours away from Will Ferrell’s edition of “Saturday Night Live” with musical guest Usher, and both seem desperate to remind us viewers of one thing in the new promo video — Sunday is Mother’s Day! The show does always make an effort to celebrate the day in some sort of bizarre way, and we can pretty much expect the same thing to happen again this time.
Probably the most surprising element of this promo, though, is that Will and Usher are not accompanied by any cast members from the show itself — which is probably more than anything a recognition of how much faith “SNL” has in its former cast member (who is making his third appearance as a host). Considering that Ferrell lifts just about any material he is given, we are expecting a hit show — let’s just hope that we are not let down in between now and 1:00 a.m. Eastern when the show wraps up.
What do you think about this promo, and are you expecting big things from this show?
