In the past, a cast member didn't play Bannon, instead having the political figure played by a grim reaper character with a skull face mask.
The episode hosted by actor Sam Rockwell - who just won the Golden Globe for his performance in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missoouri - got off to star studded start with Bill Murray popping up as Steve Bannon in a spoof of Morning Joe. Magic. Magic. The king maker! "The Bannon dynasty is dawning!"
"I'm working on a web series for Crackle". The show will be called "Cucks In Cars Getting Coffee". "I'm also coming out with a new line of wrinkled barn jackets".
Murray was sat with SNL alum Fred Armisen, who played author Michael Wolff, as two guests for MSNBC's morning show Morning Joe.
"You know what? C'mon, you know you're done, it's over", Armisen as Wolff said.

Numerous accusers have challenged Mary's conclusion that the university did not harass or undermine any of the accusing students. Aslin and his fellow complainants did not participate in White's investigation due to the pending legal case.
However, it is when he talks about eventually returning to politics that things take a turn for the dark, when Bannon announces some of the people that he has in mind to follow in the footsteps of President Trump. Bill Murray as Steve Bannon meets Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump. "Already got prospects. Logan Paul".
As if that wasn't enough, Leslie Jones popped up next as Oprah Winfrey to discuss her presidential campaign. When asked about her own potential candidacy, she said, "I am a celebrity, so I'm qualified, but I am different from Donald Trump because I'm actually a billionaire".
Then Murray, Armisen and the rest of the cast opened the show with its traditional catch phrase, "Live".
Saturday Night Live came back from hiatus tonight, and with everything that happened in the last few weeks, they had quite a bit of catching up to do.
