Few talent in recent memory has had the reach and influence of Megan Thee Stallion on the collective cultural scene. That is why she is one of the rare celebrities and personalities who can successfully work as a host and musical guest Saturday Night Live. Not to mention she did a great album in August this year with Traomazine.
Gifted with her natural charm and charisma, she is the perfect host who turns all eyes on her SNL. Her hosting assignments already grabbed headlines when it was revealed that her Los Angeles home was burgled while she was getting ready this week, and she’s already announced that she’s taking a much-deserved break from the spotlight after her hosting assignments. Let’s get to the best (and most festive) of this week’s episode.

SNL He is at his best when the host understands and can create content that fits his unique skills and personality. This understanding is best captured at Hot Girl Hospital, where she combined Megan Thee Stallion’s nursing degree and her famous brand. Join Megan Thay Stallion Hospital dedicated to “bad whores” Banky Johnson and Ego Nodim, a fee that can only be done with her as host. The New York Times quote, “Somehow enabling and regressing at the same time,” was the perfect summation of a tongue-in-cheek scheme.

“We’ve Got Bring” was one of those universal SNL Sketches depicting social gathering fears. With Bowen Yang, Nwodim, and Megan Thee Stallion as additions to a trio of old friends, forced conversations and awkward silences create awkward comedy that is perfectly calibrated. Structuring the sketch as a music video was perfect for Megan Thee Stallion. The climax of the drawing was really her strong exit streak about going to the bathroom to escape these two strangers.
Most emotional moment
You don’t expect too many serious moments during SNL. However, during her performance of “Anxiety,” Megan Thee Stallion seemed overcome with emotion. The performance was simple with a strong point of view, but her visible emotion reflected the authenticity that she exudes that has earned her such a wide and devoted fanbase. It’s worth pressing play.
Worst technical direction
The premise of “Workout Class” is promising. Channeling Megan Thee Stallion’s uniquely confident “hottie” energy into an exercise instructor in contrast to Heidi Gardner and Chloe Fineman as assistant instructors focused on maintaining a flat butt works well in theory. It was strange technical decisions and hiccups that hindered the sketch. The awkward transitions between shots only seemed to highlight the odd blocking of the scene. There were three focal points throughout the scene that felt oddly siphoned off from one another. Both Megan and Yang seemed to be breaking during the scene, which can always be amusing on SNL, but the confusing geography of the scene created a disconnect.
MVP of the week
While she has always been great on the show, Nwodim really got the chance to shine in this episode. She was great in everything and appeared in most sketches of the night. Her delivery of “they can” in “Girl Talk” was particularly hilarious, but it was “Classroom” that really showed off Nwodim’s unique talents. Riffing off films like Dangerous Minds or Freedom Writers, Nwodim comes in as a substitute teacher with mistaken assumptions and expectations. The way that she attempts to save face as the fool in the sketch is precision comedy.

- The cold opening really felt shaking. It would be great if they got more brutal with political comedy. They always seem a little attached to the reality of the situation.
- It would have been great if Cecily Strong was available for hocus pocus mom part. This looks like its own wheelhouse.
- The Dunder Mifflin sweatshirt was the highlight of Women’s Philanthropy.
- “Deer” was one of the SNL sketches that finally captured you with its stupidity.
