Ben, Dana and Giselle's replay: 11/14/16

NES Classic, french fries, SNL.

Happy Monday, party people! We had a seriously fun show this morning, and now we're all headed to rewatch Saturday Night Live on Giselle's DVR.

6:15 - Saturday Night Live kicked ass 

Speaking of Saturday Night Live, Dave Chappelle opened up the show with a monologue calling for unity and openness, and Kate McKinnon's cold open as Hillary Clinton performing Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" ruled.

6:30 - Minnesota irrational passions

We talked about the weather, high school hockey, skyways, Zombie Pub Crawl, and our rivalry with Wisconsin among our favorite ridiculous passions of this wonderful state.

6:50 - The Trend 

Vikings still aren't winning, and president-elect Donald Trump was featured on 60 Minutes.

7:15 - French fry debate 

The great french fry debate, it has torn this morning show apart.

7:30 $1,000 Minute 

Mark played $1,000 Minute and finished all the questions with some pretty good results. He took home $80 today and you could tomorrow. We play every day at 7:30 a.m.

8:15 - Get to Know: Zombie Kindergarteners 

Thank you Casey who asked us just how we would fight off the zombie kindergartners, even though we know we may not make it.

8:30 NES Classic 

The hot ticket item came out last Friday, the Nintendo Classic is out and both Ben and Dana got their hands on one.

9:30 Weekday Shenanigans 

Lakes and Legends Movie Monday kicking off the holiday season with Bad Santa tonight at 5 p.m.

Geek Date Night is back with Space Jam trivia night at Club Jäger on Tuesday at 7 p.m.
