Truthfully I was hesitant to even watch this because the idea of joking about and normalizing an actual Trump presidency makes me sick but I decided to give it a try. It was Chappelle’s first time hosting so that was bound to be interesting.
Cold open: Poignant and perfect.
Monologue: This was pretty great. It was more like traditional stand-up than the other hosts have done this season and that was a good thing.
Election results: Chappelle was funny and I liked the cameo by Chris Rock a lot.
Walking Dead: This was funny. It was great to see a lot of the Chappelle show characters get some air time.
First song: A Tribe Called Quest. That’s it. That’s all that needs to be said.
Weekend Update: As far as I’m concerned, nothing beats Update especially this season. They are on point with the election coverage and their back and forth is great.
Inside SNL: I’m glad that they don’t seem to be taking themselves too seriously but it just kind of fell flat.
Kids Talk Politics: Even SNL is telling America to step up their game.
Donnellys: I don’t even know what I watched but I laughed at it so good job?
Second song: See first song.
Leslie/Kyle: Poor Kyle.
Football game: Leslie, Pete and Kenan were all breaking at one point. This was so bizarre and kind of gross but funny.
