The Jan. 6 hearings have been primetime political fodder for months, and they continue to get the late night comedy treatment, this week serving as the cold open for "Saturday Night Live." 

Kenan Thompson opened the show presiding as Jan. 6 committee chairman Rep. Bennie Thompson during the closing statements of the hearings, calling the attack at the Capitol one of the most "dramatic and consequential moments in our nation's history."
