Saturday Night Live: The 12 Best Sketches of Season 41 (So Far)

Saturday Night Live has this weekend off — and coupled with its bruisingly bad Ronda Rousey episode on Jan. 23 — that’s an awfully long wait for funny business from Studio 8H.

Fret not; TVLine’s got you covered.

We’ve reviewed every sketch up to Season 41’s current midway point and gathered the 12 best (with handy video links) all in one gallery.

“Alien Abduction” is there. So is “Santa Baby.” And naturally, Adele’s Thanksgiving “Hello” makes the cut, too.

Check out the gallery below for the full countdown – or click here for direct access — then share your own “Best of Season 41” list in the comments!

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    What do all the critics have against the Undercover Boss sketch? I haven’t seen it on any best of lists, even for that one week! It was absolutely hilarious! Driver was a scream.

  2. Mr. Tran K says:

    The First Got Horny 2 U sketch is definitely my favorite so far this season. I can only imagine Kate McKinnon serenading about Taylor Hanson and truly “gay as hell”.

  3. Amanda says:

    Totally agree with #1. #12 and #7 should be much higher though!

  4. Dan says:

    so far my three favorites have been the Jeffersons director, the nfl replay, and the 3D printed man

  5. David says:

    That’s not a great list. Adele should be #1 and Undercover Ren should be #2. I also think at least one of the debates should be there. And what about the “I bought you a gun” commercial? Some of your choices are bizarre especially considering they weren’t even highlighted on TVLine the Sunday after they ran. The airline one wasn’t really funny at all…even with Schumer. Perhaps a do-over is needed.

  6. Larry says:

    I loved the porn parodies and the teacher trial ones

  7. Andy says:

    The alien abduction was my favorite this season. Kate McKinnon is basically the MVP of any sketch she’s in.
