Welcome back to tvDownload’s social media column — written for the people and by the people, like some kind of millennials’ Pravda. It’s where you can come to find out what the internet is saying about your favorite shows, and to see what new stuff might be worth checking out. You do want to fit in with the rest of us, don’t you, comrade?

Saturday Night Live continues to make fodder of Trump’s inner circle, this week using host Scarlett Johansson as Ivanka.

The likeness (detached stare) is kind of remarkable.

#TNJWeekendRecap | #SaturdayNightLive went after #IvankaTrump and it was genius! • • On Saturday night, #SNL brought out #AlecBaldwin and his famous #DonaldTrump impersonation for an open. But, even that couldn't hold a candle to the show's harshest sketch yet. • • Played by host #ScarlettJohansson, the show introduced "Complicit" a faux perfume by #IvankaTrump. The fragrance's message was clear: an outspoken woman known to be very close to her father but is complicit in the things he does and does nothing about them. The commercial's narrator opens by saying, "She's Ivanka and a woman like her deserves a fragrance all her own. A scent made just for her. Because she's beautiful. She's powerful. She's…complicit." Adding, "She's a woman who knows what she wants, and knows what she's doing. Complicit." The best line however, "Complicit: the fragrance for the woman who could stop all of this, but won't." Yikes! • • #fortheloveofnews #tnj #thenewjournalist #journalist #journalistatwork #taradrinks #entertainmentnews #snl #saturdaynightlive #comedy #scarlettjohansson #IvankaTrump #TNJNews

Everyone was giddy about musical guest Lorde, who played stuff off her upcoming album.

Meanwhile, over in Riverdale, a new romance-slash-hashtag was born. All hail Jughead plus Betty, aka Bughead.

Here is some good Bughead advice.

And finally, this week marked the 20th anniversary of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. People piped up with tributes to the groundbreaking show that meant so much to so many.

"The hardest thing in this world is to live in it. Be brave. Live" . Come on, anyone else here a Buffy fan? . Yesterday marked the 20th anniversary of the start of Buffy on the WB. And although it started a bit later here in Germany, it was basically the favorite TV show of teenage Sarah. The badass vampire slayer 🔪who was also sassy as hell? ➡ That was exactly what this little loner with a smart mouth and weird sense of humor needed. Sometimes waiting for a new episode of Buffy was what helped me get through a bad day. There are only a few excellent TV shows with a strong heroine and an epic supporting cast that I love (looking at you Veronica Mars ➡ that Joss Whedon cameo 😉😂). So "thank you" and happy anniversary Miss Summers . And I need to thank Tom @thebookambassador for reminding me of Sunnydale yesterday. You should really go check out his amazing Buffy tribute . And now, the most important question: Team Angel or Team Spike? . #buffy #josswhedon #buffythevampireslayer #spike #funkopop #bookish #sarahmichellegellar #willow #giles #instabooks

The most hardcore fans chose to express their love permanently. Oh man, there are some intense Buffy tattoos out there.
