    Peyton Manning Was Supposed To Talk About The NFL Playoffs On "SNL," But Gushed About "Emily In Paris" Instead

    "Sacré bleu, man"

    I'm sure you didn't have this on your 2022 bingo card, but Peyton Manning made a surprise appearance on Saturday Night Live last night...and kinda killed it.

    He came out during "Weekend Update" to discuss the NFL playoffs, but it was clear he wasn't really interested in talking about that.

    Colin asked him how good the games were and Peyton replied "I heard they were incredible"

    What Super Bowl MVP Peyton Manning really wanted to talk about...was Emily in Paris.

    Peyton said the show has everything "Romance, adventure, sensuality, culture, a fresh take on feminism, finally! Not to mention a culinary tapestry so rich I can only describe it as food porn"

    His delivery of "A fresh take on feminism, finally!" will live in my head rent-free all week.

    Colin Jost tried to get Peyton to talk about some football news, but not even Tom Brady's potential retirement could get him back on topic.

    Peyton said "If it were me, I probably would retire if it gave me more time to watch 'Emily in Paris'"

    Peyton had thoughts on every aspect of the show, from Emily's career to the relationship drama to the fashion.

    Colin seemed to be genuinely agitated that Peyton watched 10 hours of Emily in Paris and zero hours of football, but Peyton stood by his decision.

    This was a truly unexpected segment, but let's not kid ourselves, it was delightful.
