We’ve had a couple weeks of Saturday Night Live-related fun here at Le Blog in celebration of the Chevy Chase episode of our podcast. If I haven’t convinced you to give it a try by now, I’m probably not going to. But what the heck? Give it a try. It’s the best Chevy Chase podcast I have listened to all year.
Yesterday we proclaimed Bill Murray the champion in our first ever bracket game. Definitely looking forward to doing more of those in the future. And today, we’re wrapping up the SNL activities by reviewing the answers from our WTHH quiz.
The new episode of Lebeau’s Le Show is all about the rise and fall of the first star of Saturday Night Live, Chevy Chase. To celebrate the new episode, we have been running an SNL-themed bracket game to pick your favorite former Saturday Night Live castmember.
Yesterday’s battle between Bill Murray and Eddie Murphy was a close one. Too close really. Yes, there were some shenanigans with people placing multiple votes. This is actually allowed and even encouraged to a degree. But in this case, the ballot-box stuffing became so frenzied that at any given point one candidate or the other was almost always leading by exactly one vote. Very suspicious.
In order to determine the true victor, I had to discard duplicate votes. Once that was done, the winner was clear: Bill Murray!
I want to thank everyone who participated in the game. It’s been a fun experience. You can look forward to more bracket games in the future. If you haven’t already done so, you may want to take the SNL quiz. I’ll be sharing detailed answers to the quiz soon.
And of course I hope you’ll check out the latest episode of Le Show. I’m really quite proud of the way the Chevy Chase episode turned out. We’ve gotten some pretty good feedback and the episode has been our most popular yet. I look forward to another new episode and some fun tie-ins in December.
We’re dedicating an entire show to the first breakout star of Saturday Night Live, Chevy Chase. Why? I really don’t know. It seemed like a good idea at the time. We cover all three of Chase’s good movies and at least a third of his terrible ones. This episode has it all; cute dogs, little people and Princess Leia in her underwear. Daffy and I discuss why Billy Murray and Chevy Chase aren’t friends and why Chase probably won’t be appearing in any Marvel movies any time soon. Find out why Chase isn’t in Animal House and why Daffy believes the movie is over-rated anyway. We also name at least a handful of the many, many people Chase has offended over the years. It’s a podcast and a dessert topping!
The show is embedded after the jump. Hope you like it.
I am currently in the process of editing the next episode of our podcast. Daffy and I have been working on some ways to improve the show from content to sound quality. The next episode has a Saturday Night Live-inspired theme. So as we build up to the next episode, we are going to run an SNL bracket game to pick your favorite former SNL cast-member.
