Saturday Night Live
“Casey Affleck & Chance the Rapper”
December 17, 2016
The Saturday Night Live episode before the Christmas break has for the past few years been one of the better episodes of the season, often bringing back SNL alums like Jimmy Fallon, or Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to do the honors of hosting. This year SNL went with notorious laugh riot, Casey Affleck who is busy promoting his hilarious new comedy Manchester by the Sea. The episode was a mixed bag, to say the least. Some sketches were smart and played to the host’s strong suits (the Dunkin Donuts ad was genius) while other sketches seemed to have been pulled out of a slush pile of rejected ideas. In short, it was fine but not exactly an episode worthy of Fallon, Fey or Poehler.
