WATCH: 'SNL' Mocks 'Fox & Friends'

KHQ.COM - What will 'Fox & Friends' Monday-morning coverage of the near government shutdown look like? According to the show's tagline, it will involve "coffee, smiles, fear and terror."

When you set out to mock a show that already mocks itself so well, there's only so much you can do. But the 'SNL' cast did a good job of giving the real Steve Doocy, Gretchen Carlson and Brian Kilmeade a run for their money. Kilmeade (Bobby Moynihan) is practically gleeful when he notes that he's just assuming that this would have been the first government shutdown in the history of our country, and Carlson's (Vanessa Bayer) indictment of the kid on "Modern Family" as being evidence that fat Mexicans are taking the jobs of American kids thanks to Michelle Obama's healthy eating program is 'Fox & Friends' logic at its finest.

Once the jobs issue enters the discussion, the trio go to an interview with an isolationist "border war expert" played by Helen Mirren. Watching Mirren attempt to mask her refined British accent under a Texan drawl to talk about reverse anchor babies is delightful in and of itself.
