Bill Murray & The Chicago Cubs Make Surprise Appearance on 'SNL'!

The Chicago Cubs have gone from World Series champions to Saturday Night Live guest stars all in the same week!

Cubs players Anthony Rizzo, Dexter Fowler, and David Ross stopped by SNL on Saturday night (November 5) to take part in a couple skits on the show.

The players first stripped down to play strippers at a bachelorette party before heading over to the Weekend Update segment where they were joined by one of the biggest fans – Bill Murray!

The 66-year-old actor, and longtime Cubs fan, celebrated with the team after they won the World Series earlier this week.

Bill has been a fan favorite on SNL for years after being a full-time cast member back in the 1970s and has stopped by to host and appear in skits since then.

'SNL' Presses Hillary Clinton on Her Emails as Donald Trump Kisses Vladimir Putin in Cold Opening - Watch!

Kate McKinnon and Alec Baldwin are taking on Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump one last time before this Tuesday’s (November 8) election on Saturday Night Live!

SNL took on a mock segment of Erin Burnett OutFront where Hillary and Donald made their finals pleas to voters, cracked on Hillary’s latest email scandal, and had Donald kissing an FBI agent, Vladimir Putin, and a KKK member!

Hillary tries to get the show commentator to discuss the kissing, but she would much rather focus on Hillary‘s emails.

Halfway through the skit, Alec and Kate break character to apologize to each other for constantly yelling and arguing at each other in every political skit and hug it out before taking it to the streets of NYC to hug it out with people of all walks of life.

Kate and Alec then come back into the studio to encourage viewers to get out and vote.

“We won’t tell you who to vote for. But on Tuesday, we all get to choose what kind of country we want to live in,” Kate said.
