Saturday Night Live opened the show Saturday with jubilant Republican senators partying following the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
SNL's cold open used mock CNN coverage to give a live look into the "GOP locker room" where senators were congratulating each other.
"There are a lot of pacemakers being put to the test tonight," said Heidi Gardner playing CNN correspondent Dana Bash to Kenan Thompson as Don Lemon.
Gardner did "post-game" interviews with Sens. Mitch McConnell (Beck Bennett), Lindsey Graham (Kate McKinnon) and Susan Collins (Cecily Strong) about how proud they were to see the confirmation happen.
"Obviously I was really sad about the whole process as you can tell from my resting bitch face," said Pete Davidson as Sen. Jeff Flake, before getting a pie in the face from Sen. Lindsey Graham.

During the real-life confirmation process to confirm then-nominee Kavanaugh, it was Flake who voted "yes" to advancing Kavanaugh from committee to the Senate while also calling for a deeper FBI investigation. The White House authorized that "limited scope" background investigation.
Eventually Flake voted "yes" to confirm Kavanaugh.
