'SNL': Pete Davidson Raps About 'Game of Thrones,' Reveals Actual Favorite Show
Saturday Night Live tried to say goodbye to Game of Thrones with a rap, though it turned into a revelation of TV viewing habits.
During the season 44 finale of the NBC late-night sketch show, castmember Pete Davidson performed a rap about the HBO series ahead of its finale on Sunday.
The prerecorded sketch opened with Davidson rapping about his love for the series, but it was soon uncovered that he actually wasn't all that fond of it. When Kenan Thompson appeared and said he didn't know that Davidson was a fan of the series, Davidson responded that he doesn't like to talk about his personal life. After Davidson then made some generic comments about the series, he revealed that his favorite show was actually Netflix's Grace and Frankie.
Musical guest DJ Khaled joined the sketch to announce that Grace and Frankie was "better than Game of Thrones."
"It's a nice show," Khaled said before announcing his name again. Davidson and Khaled continued to rap about their love of the Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin starrer, including a storyline in which Robert (Martin Sheen) had sleep apnea.
SNL recently took on the HBO series in a parody during the May 4 episode. Castmembers portrayed characters from Game of Thrones and Avengers: Endgame as they competed against each other on Family Feud in the cold open.
