Thanksgiving, like most holidays, requires some preparation. Whether you’re hosting or guesting, you’ll spend this week thinking about cooking, travel plans and how to avoid one of the holiday’s most treasured pastimes: fighting with your family.

Ready for your relatives to bring up race and police brutality? The election? The visibility of transgender people?

“Saturday Night Live” gets you. This weekend, Matthew McConaughey hosted the pre-Thanksgiving episode with musical guest Adele, whose highly anticipated album “25” was released Friday.
