Jenny Slate Makes Profane ‘Saturday Night Live’ Debut

NEW YORK, N.Y. -- One of “Saturday Night Live’s” newest featured players wasted no time making her mark on the NBC variety show.
In the season premiere on Saturday night, the recently hired Jenny Slate joined Kristen Wiig for a skit where the pair played biker chicks with a fondness for the word “freakin’” — and in one slip-up, a less family-friendly word.
“I f***ing love you for that,” Jenny said to Kristen, an f-bomb that went uncensored on the East Coast’s live broadcast.
However, Jenny’s miscue is unlikely to haunt her too much (or lead her off the show). She was seen getting a hug from head writer Seth Meyers at the show’s end and profanities after 10 PM are not fined by the FCC.
“Jennifer’s Body” star Megan Fox hosted the Season 35 debut, which also saw a performance from rock icons U2.
