Bill Hader is very good at this Saturday Night Live thing! As a cast member that put in some quality work in his time on the show, but was not spotlit as hotly as say, a Wiig or even Armisen, it’s wonderful to see Hader hosting for the second-time and truly running the show from a points perspective. The episode hosted a wide variety or reoccurring characters, while also giving the latest generation of the cast a chance to play in sketches from ten or so years ago!

In three weeks we are BACK for the next episode of Saturday Night Live, hosted by Black Panther himself Chadwick Boseman with musical guest Cardi B, which feels like a ratings boom of a show waiting to happen! Boseman was drafted by The Team You Wish You Hadn’t Started A Conversation With At A Party! This should give the team their second episode topping score in a row, along with this week, just for these final five episodes of the season! Also, just in time for the Wildcard Play-in Play-offs in VERSUS head-to-head!

Speaking of VERSUS, congratulations to Saturday Night Live Fantasy League VERSUS winners of the SATURDAY SHIELD, for best regular season record… THE PARTY ANDERSONS! Over thirteen match-ups, Rob M. and his Party Andersons won 10 and lost only 3, which tied him with Megan M. at the end of the season after War Horse Can Dance won their regular season ending match-up this week! However, The Party Andersons won the tie against War Horse Can Dance with their superior points for versus points against difference!

LAST EPISODE: STERLING K. BROWN

NEXT EPISODE: CHADWICK BOSEMAN
