The 13 Worst ‘SNL’ Hosts Of All Time
The origin of the Digital Shorts brand is credited to staff writer Adam McKay ,  who created content for the show in collaboration with SNL hosts, writers, and cast members. The popularity of these segments exploded following the addition of The Lonely Island Jorma Taccone , Akiva Schaffer , and Andy Samberg to the show, and it is to them that credit is given for ushering SNL “into the age of digital online content in a time when it needed to tap into that relevance more than ever. The shorts generally took fewer than five days to complete. Taccone also has produced music for the shorts as necessary, along with his brother, Asa.

By Valerie Siebert For Dailymail. A Saturday Night Live skit has introduced a parody dating app called Settl, which encourages women to lower their expectations in order to find a life partner. The skit, starring Vanessa Bayer, Kate McKinnon, Sasheer Zamata, and Leslie Jones fake smiling their way through marketing the app towards women looking to speed along the courting process so they can get hitched as soon as possible.
It also drives the point home with its cutting tag line: ‘Tick. Tock’: A sketch aired on the latest episode of Saturday Night Live features a spoof commercial for a dating app called Settl, which helps women find men they can marry ‘right now’. Last resort: Kate McKinnon stars in the sketch as a woman who thinks she is a ‘pretty good catch’ but just can’t meet the right guy. The next scene sees Sasheer come on screen to explain that ‘there’s nothing wrong with the men on Settl.
For Vanessa’s character, she explains how she signed up for the app because she ‘already bought my wedding dress’ and all that she needed to complete the package was a groom. After going on ‘tons of OK dates’, she met her Henry. A good look: In order to keep women from focusing on men’s looks, the app only allows them to upload their passport photos or photos of them pretending to hold the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Explaining how the app works, Leslie claims that the men are only allowed to upload passport photos or photos of them pretending to hold the Leaning Tower of Pisa – ‘that way, we can’t focus on their looks,’ she adds before her date arrives to the table, apologizing for being late because he doesn’t have a car.
The first Saturday Night Live at Home — which aired a couple of weeks ago, or maybe a few years ago, or possibly yesterday — illustrated the good and bad of shows created in quarantine. This week, however, the crew had a better sense of the tools at their disposal and got creative.

‘SNL’ turns 44: The 50 greatest ‘Saturday Night Live’ skits of all time
The Trump era has already given the world its share of hard-to-believe events. While the current White House has certainly provided the necessary fodder to help NBC’s comedy powerhouse earn can’t-miss-TV status, even the nonpolitical sketches have felt sharper.

Colin Jost handled a potentially awkward situation like a pro. In the skit, cast member Alex Moffat played the wealthy, overly confident and clueless recurring character After splitting in , Johansson began dating Jost.
After starting with a cucumber-cool monologue, Murphy dialed his vigor right back up to his heyday as a sketch performer. It was a strange moment of introspection in an evening of goofy laughs. But it also suggested, perhaps unfairly, that his sketch days were behind him, that he could no longer harness the intense energy that had made him such a unique comedy star decades before.
But his mood was offset by the guest appearances of Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, and Tracy Morgan, who gathered with Murphy onstage to soak in the excitement of his return and to acknowledge his influence on their careers. So Mr. Maybe the best sketches of the night, though, were not walks down memory lane but just very typical parodies, the type SNL does all the time. One was a jokey baking show in which each participant had made some kind of malformed cake to be mocked by the judges; the other saw Murphy play a manic Christmas elf telling a TV reporter about a polar-bear attack.
Both required Murphy to be part of the ensemble, read a bunch of silly lines, and essentially do the kind of work SNL asks of any of its guest hosts week in, week out. Yet still Murphy managed to find a real spin on his characters and demonstrate the live-wire charm that made him a star in the first place. We want to hear what you think about this article.

Adam Driver’s Return to SNL Was a Chilled Out and Awesome: Watch The Best Sketches Here
Saturday Night Live Season 45 has now come to an end with a virtually produced finale that aired on Saturday, May 9. The episode marked the third SNL At Home edition to air after in-studio production was suspended as a result of the coronavirus pandemic and resulting shutdowns. The finale featured Alec Baldwin returning for another presidential cold open, along with Kristen Wiig returning to host, and celebrity appearances by Tina Fey , Martin Short , Danny Trejo , and more.
The skits and parodies have a Saturday Night Live vibe — but without SNL’s of popular movies, workplace faux pas, awkward dating experiences, and more.
Late-night hosts have taken to anchoring their respective shows from home, and the results have been at times awkward, at times moving — and yes, at times funny, albeit in a different way than usual. For that reason, it was hard to know what to expect when Saturday Night Live announced it would return for a special, remote episode on 11 April.
It began with a bang, announcing a freshly-recovered-from-coronavirus Tom Hanks as a surprise host, with Chris Martin joining as a musical guest. The opening credits, too, got a facelift — while cast members are usually shown at famous New York City spots, this time around, they were seen performing mundane tasks such as watering their plants or eating cereal from their own homes stars are just like us! What else? Michael Che delivered an emotional, yet witty tribute to his late grandmother , who recently died of coronavirus.
After telling Jost, his co-host, that returning to work with him had brightened his mood, he told him that his grandmother would have loved for them to engage in a joke swap. That was the case on Saturday night, and after the fact, Che gleefully told his co-star that his grandmother has, in truth, never watched the show, and that he simply wanted a chance to make him read a zinger of his choosing out loud.
Also on a solemn note, the cast — including former SNL stars such as Adam Sandler, Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph — paid tribute to music producer Hal Willner , a longtime staffer on the show who died a few days before the show aired. By acknowledging the gravity of our times, as well as poking fun of quarantine culture in all the right ways, SNL managed to provide a much-needed moment of levity on Saturday night.
The best and worst SNL skits of all time
Using data and research from various sources, including sites such as IMDb and NBC , as well as fan pages and celebrity interviews, Stacker has compiled a list of some of the best skits to grace the SNL stage.

LaToya Ferguson. Neither of those things happens this time, which ultimately says a lot about how the episode ends up. And now for something completely different. Yeah, that gets lost in all the… Andrew Dice Clay maybe? This sketch has two great moments: 1. This is a Bryant and McKinnon-heavy episode, though if you need to choose one over the other, Bryant is the one who absolutely steals the show.
The Good Neighbor boys have somewhat fallen to the wayside over the years with Mikey Day and a conspicuously absent Alex Moffat, but Beck Bennett and Kyle Mooney get their chance to shine in this episode. All four of these cast members are extremely talented in their own ways, but while they all get their chance to shine this week, so much of this is far from their A-game. Especially with both Ego Nwodim and Kenan Thompson really going for it with their oblivious or at least intentionally obtuse reactions and the Bowen Yang conclusion which is actually set up early on.
