Michael Che: It was announced that the most streamed artist of 2019 was Post Malone. He is replacing last year’s winner, Pre Malone.

[Cut to Colin Jost. There’s a picture of a woman and Peloton logo at left top corner.]

Colin Jost: Peloton is being called sexist for a new ad showing a wife obsessively using a Peloton bike that her husband gave her. But at least they decided against using the slogan, “Peloton, you’d better keep it tighter than the baby sitter.”

[Michael Che laughing] [the picture changes to a mannequin and a British flag]

The parents of a toddler in great Britain say he’s obsessed with a hair styling mannequin head and he’s carrying it everywhere. It’s an adorable habit that his parents will look back on wistfully when they watch him be sentenced for multiple murders.

Michael Che: A dog in England started a house fire after he jumped on the counter and accidentally turned on the microwave. If it was such an accident, how come the microwave had a cat in it? A cute one.

[The picture changes to XFL logo]

The XFL has unveiled the new uniform for the upcoming season. At the same time, they’ll be shipping them directly to Haiti.

[Cut to Colin Jost. There’s a picture of a news article at left top corner.]

Colin Jost: A german woman is under investigation after she was told to leave a tram for not having a ticket and she sprayed the worker with her breast milk. The worst part was the worker just stood there. Mouth wide open.

[Picture changes the another news article]

Police in North Carolina arrested man after he was discovered in Cole’s parking lot smoking marijuana naked in his car. And I’m willing to bet that car was a Lincoln. [Picture changes to Matthew McConaughey in driving seat] [Cut to Michael Che. There is a picture of John Schnatter at right top corner.]

Michael Che: The wife of John Schnatter, the founder of Papa John’s has filed for divorce because marriage is a lot like Papa John’s pizza. It only seems like a good idea when you’re drunk and alone.
