The final Saturday Night Live of 2020 was full of holiday hilarity thanks to the return of Kristen Wiig for the official Christmas episode. In fact, there were so many sketches that there was an entire animated short that didn’t make it to air.
Middle-Aged Mutant Ninja Turtles is a hilariously depressing take on the classic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series that thrived in from the late 1980s through the mid 1990s. It finds the heroes in a half-shell living rather pathetic lives as they deal with the struggles of middle age. Read More »
Kristen Wiig closed out last season of Saturday Night Live with the final episode of season 45 that was remotely produced with the cast contributing sketches from their homes during the coronavirus pandemic.

Even musical guest Dua Lipa got in on one of the best sketches of the night.

When Saturday Night Live returned for their 46th season, they kicked things off with a whopping six consecutive episodes from the beginning October through the first week of November. That’s because it was election season, and that’s when SNL does their best to lambast the political scene. To usher in this year’s satire with a splash, they brought in Jim Carrey to play Joe Biden. But obviously the series can’t keep a big name like Jim Carrey around as long as Joe Biden is president, and the actor has confirmed that he will not be reprising the role on the late night sketch series anymore.

We’ve already seen Timothée Chalamet on Saturday Night Live thanks to Chloe Fineman‘s outstanding impression of him. But the real Timothée Chalamet hosted the show this weekend, he brought a lot of youthful energy to Studio 8H. Furthermore, he also allowed Pete Davidson to really shine in many more sketches than he usually gets a chance to appear in. It reminds you how good he can be with the right bit, and Chalamet clearly loved working with him since they appeared together several times throughout the episode, making for some big laughs.

Saturday Night Live made an epic run of six episodes in a row when they came back for the 46th season at the height of the 2020 election season.

This weekend’s Saturday Night Live likely had to make a dramatic shift when the official news came through that Joe Biden was elected to become the 46th President of the United States of America. That means host Dave Chappelle had a lot of responsibility to react in his monologue as well, especially since four years ago he had to deal with the more somber news of Donald Trump being elected president in November 2016. Not only did Chappelle deliver a powerful, thoughtful, provocative, and hilarious stand-up set to help open the show, but it might have been the longest SNL monologue of all-time. And on top of that, there were some great sketches in this loose, relieved, and energetic episode.

John Mulaney is one of the most beloved veterans of Saturday Night Live. Though he wasn’t ever a cast member, he made some memorable appearances at the Weekend Update desk, and he was one of the best writers on the show for a long time. Now that his star has risen outside of the realm of SNL as one of the best comedians working today, there’s a lot of excitement whenever he hosts. That excitement was even higher since his fourth stint hosting was for the Halloween episode, and it was more than a treat. It was a smorgasbord of outstanding sketch comedy and an incredible monologue. Even my least favorite sketch of the night was still funny.

But she also couldn’t keep her composure and kept cracking up during one of the worst sketches.
