Pittsburgh TV news was featured on the season premiere of “Saturday Night Live.”
A local TV news report on a potential super-spreading event at the legal change of name office in the Pittsburgh federal building was the setting for a skit on “SNL” with a lot of sexual innuendo.
The anchor for Action News 9 – Eye on Pittsburgh, played by Heidi Gardner, passes to the reporter on scene (Mikey Day), saying, “Dylan, it seems like this story is going really viral?” After the mild joke, the rest of the skit becomes a game of sexual wordplay.
The reporter chastises the anchor and then proceeds to speak to several people who were in the office waiting to change their unfortunate names which all had sexual overtones. (The names will not be mentioned here.)
