"Everybody misses me, I'm like human cocaine", Hader continued.

"Everybody loves the Mooch", Hader as Scaramucci said with exaggerated hand gestures to match an exaggerated Italian accent.

Co-hosts Colin Jost and Michael Che caught up on some of the highest profile political stories from the past two-or-so months - namely, "minor staffing changes" at the White House that saw the premature departures of Reince Priebus, Sean Spicer, and Anthony Scaramucci. "And now that I'm gone, you're all depressed and edgy and you're trying to figure out how to score some more Scaramooch!" "He was like Christmas in July".

The Mooch's post-White House publicity tour will continue Sunday when he sits down with George Stephanopolous, and then Monday when he stops by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

The Mooch hasn't left the news since his ouster. The warning was in response to Scaramucci's infamous, expletive-filled phone call with the New Yorker's Ryan Lizza.

"This could be the one thing that brings America closer to Donald Trump", Che remarked.

"I'm not Steve Bannon, I'm not trying to suck my own c-k", Scaramucci said.

Even after that insane New Yorker interview, The Mooch, a flawless Hader character, still has no regrets.

So how does Anthony Scaramucci feel about Bill Hader's impression of him?

All Thursday primetime ratings, are subject to significant adjustment from pre-season NFL preemption, and the rest of Thursday's broadcast primetime looks to come in roughly in line with recent results, which pundits predict means a 0.2-0.3 drop when final national stats show up. The Mooch's firing is the ideal example of why the show exists.

Well, the real Mooch might out of the picture (at least for now), but SNL alum Bill Hader's guest-appearance as former White House communications director was pretty much the highlight of the night.
