Saturday Night Live Fantasy League: Episode 44x19: Adam Sandler & Shawn Mendes

May 05, 2019

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 19 of Season 44, which originally aired on May 4th, 2019.

Adam Sandler made a feel good return to Saturday Night Live after far far too long! It’s wild to think that Sandler (as well as Dan Akroyd it would seem) took nine days short of TWENTY-FOUR YEARS to be brought back as a host of Saturday Night Live! Then again I’m sure they asked, and he likely hadn’t come to peace with his old home. He did not get a heroes goodbye but he certainly got a heroes welcome.

Speaking of wild first-time hosts, Emma Thompson has a sketch background as well and is somehow JUST NOW hosting Saturday Night Live with musical guest and fans of multiple weddings, the Jonas Brothers! Expect an over/under of three guest appearances connected to Thompson and the Brothers Jonas.
