Saturday Night Live Fantasy League: Episode 41x13: Melissa McCarthy & Kanye West

February 17, 2016

Minding the P’s & Q’s of SNL
QUALITY: For a Hilary Clinton cold open, and it’s sketches like this that really sells how much more the staff are Clinton fans then any other candidate, this had shades of originality and meta-weirdness (oh Jeb) that have been so great this season, and held promise for the episode going forward.
PROBLEMATIC: How quickly I realized that McCarthy had only hosted four times, thus confusing me riiight out of the joke, can only be blamed on the SNL Fantasy League. AND I DO IT FOR YOU!
QUALITY: Seriously, “Formation”. It’s black as fuck and it don’t care. Oh, also that’s one of the best sketches of the season thanks to a mix of over-reacting and disappointed confusion. Kenan confirming that Beyonce was white in the Pink Panther movie, may have been my favorite part?
PROBLEMATIC: Post-Update is when the show lost a step for me, unfortunately. The Art of the Pick-Up artist could have gone a number of interesting ways, for example, but seemed content on being a showcase for an overly aggressive Melissa McCarthy character. Once McCarthy was choking out Pete Davidson with his own shirt in the Cul-De-Sac Test Screening sketch, their was NOTHING she was going to do to top it!
QUALITY: Leslie Jones! Matthew Smith of the Ignorant Sluts will not agree, but damn it all… Jones’ Weekend Update monologue was her best yet! It proved an amazing collection of qualities she wanted in a man, “Smokes weed. Has a mother that doesn’t want to hang out with me… unless she smokes weed.” I’m not even someone who smokes (sorry Leslie) but just the execution of this particular joke was amazing. How was Jones ever not going to be a performer on SNL, again?
QUALITY: Deep Thoughts on SNL has a NEW(ish) HOST, Brian Edwards of prior Deep Thoughts guest spots and the SNL Fantasy League team The Team You Wish You Hadn’t Started A Conversation With At A Party! Enjoy our Deep Thoughts on SNL podcast! Subscribe, listen, enjoy!

Jonah Hill will the Host of Saturday Night Live, on March 5th! Enjoy a couple of weeks off before we gain a running start on the last stretch of the season! It is Jonah Hill’s fourth time hosting. He was only selected by ONE team in the entire League… The Vondrukes! This makes it the second episode in a row that The Vondrukes has gained a Host pick, so big congrats to them! Future will be the Musical Guest!

Hill is a surprise host, as he only has the Coen’s Hail, Caesar to promote! Still, as long as we let him know that this is his fourth time hosting, he won’t be looking for early entry into the Five Timers Club! These things SHANT be rushed!
The first time Leo wrestled with a bear... wait, no, Jonah is more of a cub.
