SNL Drinking Game


SNL has its 40th Anniversary Special coming up this Sunday at 8 p.m., and holy shit everyone is going to be there. Knowing that it was coming up, Brown gave us Monday and Tuesday off in order to let us imbibe guilt-free while we watch. Here’s a BlogDrinkingGame that you and your pals can play on Sunday!

Take one sip if…

  • You laugh. Two sips if your “cool” friend doesn’t laugh with you at an objectively funny joke.
  • There is an SNL Digital short.
  • There is a “Celebrity Jeopardy” skit.
  • Stefon pops up on Weekend Update, reuniting with Seth.
  • You hear the word “Shwing!”
  • Jimmy Fallon breaks character.
  • A skit has a Kenan reaction shot.


Take two sips if…

  • Lorne appears.
  • Will Ferrell’s “More Cowbell” character jams out during a musical performance.


  • Taylor Swift tries to make the night about her.
  • There is a POTUS hangout skit.
    • Bonus sips if Chevy Chase = Gerald Ford, Darrell Hammond = Clinton, Jay Pharaoh = Obama, Will Ferrell = Bush, Dana Carvey = George H.W. Bush.
  • Weekend Update does a giant “Point/Counterpoint” or “Really???” with all the returning hosts.
  • Coneheads/Wild n’ Crazy Guys/Mr. Robinson sketches happen in the first hour of the broadcast.
  • Peyton Manning and Derek Jeter are in the same skit.

Take a shot if…

  • Peyton Manning, Derek Jeter, and Betty White are in the same skit.
  • Eddie Murphy reprises his hilarious “White Like Me” sketch.
  • Your friend doesn’t know that we don’t have to use Ethernet anymore to watch TV.
  • There is a Five-Timers Club sketch.
  • Kanye and Paul McCartney perform “Only One.

Take a double shot if…

  • Kanye and Paul McCartney perform “Only One” and I don’t cry.
  • There is a Kyle Mooney video (Love him, but he’s too niche for this episode).
  • Kristen Wiig doesn’t steal the show in at least one skit.

Finish your drink if…

  • Lorne Smiles (a mathematical improbability).


Remember to drink responsibly and have a good time! It should be an unforgettable night. HolyshitIamsoexcited.

    LOL, Saturday Night Live had an entire skit on how Fox News lies, while it was being broadcast on the station that employed Brian Williams (Well, yeah, and Dan Rather also).

    That actually made me laugh.
