On Jan. 19, "Saturday Night Live" poked fun at the sporting scandals that took place last week including Lance Armstrong's interview with Oprah Winfrey and the fake dead girlfriend rumors surrounding Manti Te'o.

Armstrong's interview with Winfrey was television on Jan. 17 and 18, in which he admitted to using performance enhancement drugs throughout his cycling career. Armstrong, played by Jason Sudeikis in the television skit, sat down for an interview with Piers Morgan, played by fellow cast member Taran Killam.

"It wasn't really all that sophisticated, Piers," Sudeikis' Armstrong said of his drug use. "All I actually did was steroids, testosterone, human growth hormone, EPO and I replaced all of my blood with better blood."

"Is that sophisticated? You know, I don't know," he continued. "Is it cheating? Maybe. Am I sorry I did it? Yes ... ish. P.S. No."

Armstrong added, "The most important thing is I never, ever called anyone a fat b--ch."

It was revealed on Jan. 16 that Notre Dame football player Te'o did not lose his girlfriend to leukemia in 2012 and that the woman in question, an alleged Lennay Kekua, was not real at all. In the "SNL" skit, Te'o, played by "SNL's" Bobby Moynihan, told Morgan in his interview that he was shocked by the hoax played on him.

"It's even more devastating for my girlfriend Lennay," he said. "A couple months ago, she called me up on the phone and was like 'Hey, I have some bad news: I'm dead.' And I said 'Oh no! Do you need a ride to the funeral?' " 

To end the bit, Kate McKinnon did her famed Jodie Foster impersonation to re-enact the actress' acceptance speech at the Golden Globes.

"Allow me to set the record straight once and for all," she said. "I'm going to set the record straight--loud and proud right? Here we go. I am gaaame for anything."

"Also, I am officially a Leslie Nielsen fan. I just thought you all should know that. Oh, and I'm obsessed with 'Girls' the show. I just love the show. That is such a giant weight off my lesbian chest."
