If it happens and its important Saturday Night Live is probably going to mock it. Your situation or drama is not official until the cast of SNL gets a hold of it.
So you knew that the power outage at the Super Bowl would get it’s chance on SNL. Per USA Today, the episode focused on the performance of the CBS crew during the outage, while making fun of studio hosts James Brown, Dan Marino, Bill Cowher and Shannon Sharpe.
The impressions were not perfect, but the idea, and the premise of what happened was spot on.

Saturday Night Live took on CBS' awful handling of the Super Bowl blackout last night with a sketch that was, not surprisingly, just as awful. Click play for Shannon Sharpe. Then FF to 4:45 for Dan...

Bill Cowher once had three straight non-playoff seasons yet retained his job as head coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers and later won a Super Bowl. In six seasons as Cowher’s replacement, Mike Tomlin has made the playoffs four times and has advanced to two Super Bowls, winning one.
What Cowher and Tomlin have in common though are tough, ‘never-should-have-happened’ losses in...
The last couple weeks have been some crazy ones for the wide world of sports. It seemed like thanks to Lance Armstrong and Manti Te'o anyone and everyone that had some kind of gripe or dirt they wanted to air decided to do so all at once.
Lots of them didn't make sense. They happened so long ago you couldn't help but wonder why in the world were they becoming...
Remember 2005 and 2006?
More people were using MySpace than Facebook, banks didn’t need bailouts and Bill Cowher was still the Pittsburgh Steelers coach.
The 2005 and 2006 NFL drafts were the Steelers’ last two under Cowher, and they continued to stock their roster with players who would contribute to Super Bowl teams.
Three months after winning Super Bowl XL, the Steelers drafted...
Even though we were almost a full week removed from the Super Bowl, Saturday Night Live could not let the blackout (and CBS's coverage) go unspoofed. We were treated to a fairly brilliant cold open during this past week's episode. Keenan Thompson as James Brown really steals the show here. It is a mix of trying to mask his own panic while trying to keep everyone else'...
During last week’s Super Bowl, it was obvious that CBS had no idea how to handle the unexpected blackout that came just minutes after the halftime show. The analysts didn’t know how to break down what happened just minutes into the third quarter and sideline reporters Steve Tasker and Solomon Wilcots had no answers for why the blackout occurred. Bill Cowher even resorted to talking...

When you have Saturday Night Live on a week after Super Bowl XLVII, you know there is going to be a segment about the 33-minute power outage that took place.
CBS was made fun of a numerous amount of times for their coverage during that power outage, which led to SNL mocking the crew that features James Brown, Dan Marino, Bill Cowher, Shannon Sharpe and Steve Tasker.
Take a look:

Before the Super Bowl, Saturday Night Live did a great job of mocking Ray Lewis, and this time, the Super Bowl Blackout was on a tee for them to do a skit about it. For their opening segment on Saturday night, they spoofed CBS and their crew stationed on the field for the game.Kenan Thompson did another great job, this time imitating Jim Brown perfectly, but the real winner here...
