Sunday Morning Quarterback – Dwayne Johnson & George Ezra

Dwayne Johnson is an odd pop culture figure.  He’s huge star, but he’s never launched his own franchise.  He’s transcended professional wrestling, but still has a huge wrestling presence.  He’s also a very solid SNL host.

It’s why we’ve got some expectations for him as a host.  And Saturday Night Live could really use a homerun, right about now, with some relatively weak episodes so far this year.  Did Johnson deliver?

Monday Munchies – Ben & Jerry’s Wayne’Swirled

Anticipation can be a tricky thing.  Sometimes that expectation can lead to disappointment.  Tons of kids have stories about less than stellar Xmas the result of not getting what they thought they were going to get. 

But the other side of the coin is anticipating the worst and being relieved when it doesn’t come to pass.  There have definitely been times I anticipated getting caught and was relieved when I wasn’t.  So, anticipation can go both ways. 

Which brings us to Ben & Jerry’s final SNL Batch; Wayne’Swirled

Sunday Morning Quarterback – Chris Hemsworth & Zac Brown Band

I can’t front; I’ve got zero interest in either Zack Brown Band or Chris Hemsworth.  I’m watching this episode because I like SNL. 

I am sort of curious to see what Hemsworth’s skill set is like.  He’s an action star, which typically means he’s not really an actor.  But he’s also Australian, which tends to indicate he’s a good actor.  How will he do as Saturday Night Live host?

Sunday Morning Quarterback – Dakota Johnson & Alabama Shakes

I’ll admit to still being on a nostalgia high for SNL.  The 40th Anniversary special was pretty dope, despite all of the people who tried to make it out to be disappointing.  It was a very dope celebration of a very influential show. 

I’ll also admit to be slightly excited for Dakota Johnson hosting.  I’ve not seen Fifty Shades of Grey and I probably never will, but I’m always up for an unknown quantity hosting SNL, and you’d be hard-pressed to find a quantity more unknown than Johnson. 

I’m kind of expecting to be slayed.
