NEW YORK (AP) — You wouldn't have known it was the Saturday before the election on "Saturday Night Live."
Sure, Mitt Romney, played by Jason Sudeikis, made a quick appearance on "Weekend Update," but otherwise much of the focus was on Superstorm Sandy — and Mayor Michael Bloomberg's sign-language interpreter, Lydia Callis.
The real Callis has gained some pop-culture popularity with her enthusiastic interpreting of Bloomberg's words. She was back at the mayor's side at Saturday's briefing in New York and was played on "SNL" by Cecily Strong. The mayor — played by Fred Armisen — thanked Callis for bringing "pizazz" to her job.
Hosting Saturday's show was comedian and TV star Louis C.K. He said in the monologue of New York City: "We're still standing."
President Barack Obama didn't appear on the show.
