Saturday Night Live Fantasy League: Episode 44x09: Matt Damon & Mark Ronson and Miley Cyrus

December 23, 2018

Saturday Night Live Fantasy League presented by Trivia Club, is a Fantasy League like no other. Like Fantasy Football for the comedy nerd, 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 maths to comedy and somehow make that a fun game to play. 

Here’s the points breakdown for our Fantasy League of Saturday Night Live episode nine of Season 44, which originally aired on December 15th, 2018. Yes, we realise how long ago that was. Happy Holidays.

Apologies for the late points breakdown, holidays gotta holiday and that's for the days you can get off during the fourth quarter of the year! Thank you to Rob M. for getting those points broken down! Matt Damon ended up hosting what was maybe... the best episode of the year so far? Sorry, we're all in the thick of it, in our sixth season of Saturday Night Live Fantasy League and the way of the world has made it a little less easy to tune in at midnight every Saturday, even for us. Honestly, rotating the points breakdown has been a League saver! Well done though, Matt Damon... the Weezer sketch and its scarcity after the original airing, made it a viral sensation within the League group chat!

We don't know when the next episode of SNL will be, other then a Saturday in the next few weeks, but there are likely twelve more episodes to last us until May! Check in on the Saturday Night Live Fantasy League for more points breakdowns in the future!

LAST EPISODE: JASON MOMOA

NEXT EPISODE: RACHEL BROSNAHAN
