Anyone else getting sick of politics? Well, unfortunately, on a show that tackles major political stories all the time, under a president who constantly makes bad decisions and likes to complain about the jokes they make at his expense based on said decisions, the topics concerning him are just unavoidable... For month...

March 2017 Predictions

My host predictions are pretty much the same as they were for this month...The only extra thing to consider is that we still haven't gotten our obligatory double-duty musician host yet (Mars and Gaga were good enough hosts the first time around to warrant another go, but I guess SNL had other plans), or our obligatory first time former cast-member host...Just thought I'd point that out...

Otherwise, the three most hyped movies of March are still "Logan", "Kong: Skull Island" and "Beauty and the Beast". My most educated guess is that either Hugh Jackman or Tom Hiddleston will host on the 4th, and then Emma Watson (who is also starring in the upcoming movie "The Circle" with Tom Hanks) will host on the 11th...I mean, Kristen Stewart was given a chance for no real reason other than some independent films, I don't see why ...

2/4/2017: Kristen Stewart/Alessia Cara

Kristen Stewart was always quite notorious as that emotionless block of wood from the "Twilight" movies and various others, but she has made a better name for herself in recent years with her roles in independent films...Unfortunately, her Bella Swan persona was what triumphed throughout last night's show, leading to all sorts of awkward deliveries, botched lines and an F-bomb...I think her chances of ever returning to host a second time are now toast...

So how was the show itself...? Pretty good...Though it might have been better if the host didn't bring down the sketches with said awkward deliveries...(In fact, she wasn't the only one who flubbed some lines, which I'll get to...)

The cold opening was pretty standard Trump-bashing, complete with Reaper Bannon returning, though it did have some nice gags with the phone-calls...And a special shout-out to Alex Moffat ...

Well, the Trumpster is in the White House! Nobody truly knows what to expect over these next four years...Not even whether or not our new president will remain in office by the next election...

So with all that said, it's interesting (and perhaps intentional?) that SNL has followed both tension-filled political events with a stand-up comedian who has nothing to immediately promote (though this one is coming fairly fresh off of the success of "Master of None", which is still awaiting its second season) hosting the show...And like the other post-political-event episode hosted by a stand-up comedian, it gave us exactly what we needed with one of the best episodes of the season!

Let's get the political stuff out of the way first, because the sooner we can move on to new topics, the better...Despite promising that Baldwin's Trump would show up for the ...Read more

February 2017 Predictions

Hosts:

Anyone who's nominated for an Oscar: Kinda depends on who's nominated really.
Emma Watson ("Beauty and the Beast"): Would fit very well for the Valentine's Day episode.
Hailee Steinfeld ("Edge of Seventeen"): Could also work for Valentine's Day, though her time may have passed now.
Hugh Jackman ("Logan"): If there's a time to bring him back, this may be it...
Ryan Reynolds ("Life"): Mostly for the "Deadpool" hype...
Tom Hiddleston ("Kong: Skull Island"): Loki must be feeling pretty jealous that Thor hosted twice now (and didn't really earn that second appearance...)
Will Forte ("Last Man On Earth"): I'd love to see him host, though I'm not sure when will be the ideal time...

Musical Guests:

An indie band that I'm not entirely familiar with: Never count these possibilities out...
Beck: Still waiting for the announcement of his new album...
Ed ...

1/14/2017: Felicity Jones/Sturgill Simpson
In the wake of Carrie Fisher's death, it seems only fitting to promote the movie that created a CGI replica of her young self (and did the same with Peter Cushing), while dressing Tina Fey as Princess Leia and giving some rather...foreshadowing advice to our host last night...

Indeed, while I predicted that Felicity Jones would host the show at some point to promote not only "Rogue One", but several other recent roles, it did hit me in the weeks leading up to this show that she may very well serve as not much more than an ensemble player...And I was pretty much right on the money...

Yes, I acknowledge that Jones is going places with her acting talents, but lately on the show, it's been pretty much proven for any host that if you don't have a well-established persona, the writers will have little ...Read more

12/17/2016: Casey Affleck/Chance the Rapper
Last night, SNL took a big risk for it's final show of 2016 with a host who's never even been on the show and has shown minimal past experience with comedy...But he's the younger brother of one of their favorite hosts, so I guess there's that...

Did this risk pay off? ...Well, to be fair, his performance in the sketches wasn't bad, kind of in the same way that Margot Robbie wasn't too bad with what little she was given...But Affleck had a little more to do than she did, and shined in one or two sketches...

First of all, I gotta give the guy some props for being the first Christmas special host since 2009 to resist singing for the monologue...Granted, they built it up, possibly out of awareness of how much Fallon made it cool to do a musical ...Read more

January 2017 Predictions
Let's predict the opening shows of 2017, shall we?

At the top of my list is Hailee Steinfeld to perform double-duty for both "Edge of Seventeen" and her recent hit single "Starving".
I still have Alec Baldwin as a consideration...Perhaps he can open up the new year kind of as a way of preparing for Trump's coming inauguration...
I also still have Felicity Jones as a consideration to give the inevitable hit "Rogue One" an after-plug, but honestly, the perfect time for her to promote not only that but all of her other recent and upcoming roles has past, and it might look kinda gimmicky opening the year with a "Star Wars" actor for the second year in a row...
And now for some musical guest predictions, once more listed from most to least likely...
Hailee Steinfeld: Coupled with "Edge of Seventeen", it couldn't be a ...

12/10/2016: John Cena/Maren Morris
Last night, a man hosted the penultimate SNL episode of 2016...AND HIS NAME IS-

...Wait a minute, I don't see anyone...Why are the cast-members interacting with air?

There, I got those old memes out of the way, let's talk about the show...

It was a pretty slow news-week, so I guess it figures that they would invite someone plugging an upcoming movie to cameo as his most famous character in order to joke about Trump's main current controversy. It was a big enough cameo that they didn't need to change the cold opening even after the news of Russia apparently having a major hand in Trump's victory, but they would address that later. It was overall a welcome cameo, and having watched all of "Breaking Bad" not too long ago on Netflix, I can say that it indeed felt like some surreal follow-up ...Read more
