Saturday Night Live Fantasy League: Episode 44x20: Emma Thompson & Jonas Brothers

May 11, 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 20 of Season 44, which originally aired on May 11th, 2019.

Emma Thompson was an excellent host, though I shouldn’t have to tell you that! Saturday Night Live and our Fantasy League comes to an end with next Saturday’s FINALE EPISODE hosted by Paul Rudd with “musical” guest DJ Khaled! Yes, it’s a collection of the most likable (and possibly immortal) man in Hollywood, and a man who seems to be more into positive affirmations then putting in the work!

Speaking of putting in the work, Hunter the Hungries Gotta Eat has looked to have built a further lead on the Billion Dollar Murrays, as song choices and host points from the Murrays aren’t able to keep up with the straight-forward and head-to-head battle of Aidy Bryant vs. Kenan Thompson, between the two top teams!

The Phil Hartman Trophy won’t be handed out until AFTER May 18th, however! We’ll see you NEXT EPISODE for the final episode of this sixth season of Saturday Night Live Fantasy League in year forty-four of the comedy institution!

LAST EPISODE: ADAM SANDLER

NEXT EPISODE: PAUL RUDD
