Saturday Night Live Fantasy League: Episode 43x06: Chance the Rapper & Eminem

November 19, 2017

Saturday Night Live Fantasy League presented by Trivia Club, is a Fantasy League like no other. Like Fantasy Football for the comedy geek, participants draft cast members and prospective hosts before the start of the season and then are awarded points based of their performance through a scoring system. For additional points, before the start of each episode participants can guess which two songs they think the musical guest will perform. Since the beginning, this television institution has become the first step in the major leagues of comedy stardom, and with over forty seasons of familiar traditions, we’ve found a way to add math to comedy and somehow make that a fun game to play. Play at home,  or keep tabs on how we’re doing in our Saturday Night Live Fantasy League!

Chance the Rapper is as good a host as one would expect, which is to say really quite good. Both game to add all that he can to a sketch with his set of affable, musical, aw shucks set of skills,  while also surprising with a Family Feud segment that was surprisingly wonderful (as it turns out, it’s not just an imitation showcase, or a way to get Kenan on the show!), and also giving Chris Redd further chance to break out this season!

Also, I would like to canonize the Weekend Update appearance from Pete Davidson about Staten Island.

December 2nd, in TWO WEEKS from this episode, it’s a very pleasant surprise to see Saoirse Ronan hosting! Not only that, but it’s a very Irish episode of Saturday Night Live, with sudden but always enjoyable (in this format, because I’ll never forget when Amy Poehler cried from happiness and exhaustion) U2! Adam Scott just couldn’t get the timing right to host, I suppose. Ronan looks fantastic in Lady Bird, which I still have to see but I’m sure you have. It’s really good isn’t it?

LAST EPISODE: TIFFANY HADDISH

NEXT EPISODE: SAOIRSE RONAN
