“I'm Brooke Baldwin, and you're watching the loose collection of daytime nonsense we call the CNN Newsroom.”

So opens this stellar sketch from tonight's Michael Keaton-hosted episode of “SNL,” which takes on the inanity of CNN daytime's apparent propensity for trotting out 8-bit Nintendo-quality graphics to reenact horrific real-life events and Muppets to dramatize Iranian nuclear negotiations. Also, Indiana's Religious Freedom Restoration Act gets a delirious performance-art spin.
