Saturday Night Live (SNL) took aim at the wrongdoings of several celebrities and politicians with a new cold-open, this time spoofing a talk show hosted by Britney Spears.
The show, titled “Oops, you did it again” as a play on one of Spears’ best known songs, featured Texas Senator Ted Cruz, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and former The Mandalorian star Gina Carano.

“Basically I started this show ‘Oops, you did it again’ so people could come on and apologize for things they’ve done wrong because after the #FreeBritney documentary, I’m receiving hundreds of apologies a day,” said Spears, who was played by cast member Chloe Fineman.
The first guest on the show was Cruz, who was criticized this week after it was revealed he was vacationing in Mexico while a massive snowstorm left thousands of Americans in Texas without power and running water.
“I’m sorry. I deeply regret my actions over the last couple of days, mostly flying United,” joked Cruz, who was played by Aidy Bryant.
Spears then asked if Cruz if he understood why people were calling him a coward, to which he responded that was actually the nicest word he’s heard.

“But let me ask you this: Would a coward have the cajones to blame his actions on his young daughters,” he asked, referencing a statement from him Thursday which seemingly placed the blame on his two daughters “who asked to take trip with friends.”
Joining Spears next on the show was Cuomo, who was played by Pete Davidson.
