Peyton Manning was featured on the January 29 episode of Saturday Night Live, via YouTube. And during the appearance, he made a mention to Emily in Paris, a Lily Collins-led series that premiered on Netflix in October 2020 (via IMDb).

As he sat next to Colin Jost during the long-running sketch comedy's "Weekend Update" segment, Manning said that while he planned to watch the weekend's AFC and NFC playoff games between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Cincinnati Bengals, and the Los Angeles Rams and the San Francisco 49ers, he got a bit sidetracked.

"I had an hour to kill before the first game. And just for fun, I put on the first episode of Emily in Paris season two. And I watched the entire season straight through," Manning admitted.

According to Manning, he was completely taken by the series due to its well-rounded plot.

"Oh my God, Colin, this show has everything: romance, adventure, sensuality, culture, a fresh take on feminism, finally," he declared.

"Let me break it down for you," Manning continued to Jost. "This is a classic showdown between Emily's career and her love life. Early on, the O's were getting completely dominated by the X's and there were a lot of X's, if you know what I mean."

Manning went on to reveal details about the challenges Collins' character, Emily, was having in her love life as he developed a football-style play for how she should be taking her relationship drama on.

He then said that despite her ups and downs, "emotionally, she's making forward progress."

Manning even gave a nod to the fashion of the show.

"You know what's not sitting on the sidelines?" he asked. "The fashion. She might not be driving a car, but she sure knows how to drive an episode down the field with these lewks."

"Peyton Manning in a beret is everything I didn’t know I needed. Still dying over the Emily in Paris-inspired Weekend Update on [NBC's Saturday Night Live] last night," she wrote in the caption of the clip.
