Here's my take: this is not a mocking. It is a bit of cultural and religious humor. Tasteless and harmful to some, yes. I don't think Jesus is suffering for it. HE's bigger than all that, and my belief in him is much bigger than to be hurt by this skit.
Here's my beef: Jesus is bigger than a silly skit. And, Jesus coming back and taking no heat from anybody is awfully funny to me. I love him and his teachings, and this skit seems funny to me as described (I didn't see it).
'SNL' is a bunch of ants compared to Christianity. If they did this will ill intent, then they may get what they deserve.
I believe that God, and Jesus, can take care of themselves. It's us who have to get thicker skins about some dopey humor.
