With season 40 of Saturday Night Live just a couple weeks away, I am taking a look back at season 39 to get myself back in the Studio 8H mindset. My predictions for last year’s hosts started out fairly strong, as I identified 5 of the first 7. But thereafter it was rather disastrous, as I only hit on 3 of the final 14, for a final tally of 8/21. Oddly enough, I fared better with the musical guests (10/21), which are typically harder to gauge than the hosts. It helped that I kept predicting my ultimate dream musical guest St. Vincent year after year and that she was finally booked last season.
