Tiffany Haddish Jokes With Taylor Swift About Being on 'Reputation' in SNL Preview: Watch

Saturday Night Live airs Saturdays at 11:30/10:30.

Tiffany Haddish praise-danced and joked her way through her debut on SNL Saturday night, becoming the first black woman standup comedian to ever host the legendary show in 43 seasons. "She's from Colorado. You can tell because she likes to smoke reefer".

Haddish, who will be the show's first black female comedian host, asks Swift "I just wanna know: Are any of those new songs about me?"

Haddish cracked jokes about her newfound wealth (or lack thereof), her childhood growing up in foster care, breaking the fashion taboo of wearing the same dress in public a couple of times, and all of the sexual assault allegations in the news.

The Egyptian has scored seven goals in eleven league games so far this season, becoming a central part of Liverpool's attack. He helped Nigeria qualify for the world cup in Russian Federation .

Most of the best sketches of the night included Haddish. I mean, why can't it be that because we have a mental health problem, we now have a gun situation? She opened the show with a monologue that addressed the recent wave of sexual assault allegations in the news, including most recently against Louis CK. Chriss Redd played Jones' and Mooney's grown son, and Jost had a plot to help unravel the "relationship".

In adults 18-49, possibly boosted by the appearance of pop star Tyler Swift who performed songs from her new album, SNL posted a 1.9 rating in the markets with local people meters, up a tenth from last week.

The pair will appear on SNL tomorrow with Haddish as host and Swift as musical guest.
