Saturday Night Live, Sunday Night or Later: Season finale edition

Perhaps I am a cowardly ranker, but I feel like Season 47 was good. Not phenomenal, not horrific, but good. There were moments I would like to forget, but there were also plenty of stand-out moments that I still remember weeks after the season is over.

All 21 cast members, ranked worst to best:

SNL is a show of sketches, but what would those sketches be without the people in them? Through watching every sketch, cold open, “Weekend Update” feature and monologue cameo, I developed extremely professional and infinitely unbiased opinions about each member of the Season 47 cast. Here they are in a convenient, numbered list format, along with a sketch I feel best shows their talents. I wholeheartedly...
