I've listed down the rundown of each sketch from every episode of Season 43. I've left a lot of the writing credits blank since there are no known credits for them.

Q: How do you find out about who writes what sketch?

A lot of the writers and cast members often post about the sketches that they've written on their Twitter/Instagram accounts. SNL has a list of the writers on their Twitter account.

Recurring sketches and Weekend Update features are often written by the same people who wrote it initially.

OK, so if you remember Aziz Ansari's episode from Season 42, Les did a piece on Weekend Update about Hidden Figures. In it, she promoted her favourite show, "Timeless", because it taught her that the Lone Ranger was black.

After being cancelled and renewed again, Timeless has been re-canceled after two seasons. Last month, Les said that if Timeless was cancelled, she'd protest nude at 30 Rock, and according to interviews she seems to be keeping that promise.

If she's being serious, be prepared. My body is not ready for (more) Les nudity. But she probably isn't (which, for some of you, is probably for the best).

8 *It was TAPED in April.

Anyways, I like how she mentions that back in the old days, their guest hosts were just random and unknown, instead of today, where they only have celebrities guest host if they're promote a movie. That's why neither Laraine nor Jane has hosted SNL in atleast the 80s. That's why Weird Al has never hosted SNL (AND was musical guest). That's why Seth, Forte, and Sudeikis haven't hosted yet. This needs to change, we gotta see some lesser known or less popular people on there. It's obvious that Ariana's coming back to season 44 as the host/musical guest since she's engaged to Pete Davidson, but, sometime that season, they should get Christina Aguilera as the host and musical guest (she hosted SNL back in 2004 and she has some new music, + Melissa could impersonate her on there IF they keep her around next season). They should get Kate Micucci to host with musical guest Garfunkel and Oates. It CAN happen if SNL stops hiring celebrities to host if they have a new movie out, and of tjey stop worrying about relevant celebrities, then we could get some hosts like the aforementioned (Seth, Forte, Sudeikis, Weird Al, Aguilera, etc.)


Remember this post from a few days ago? The "SNL All-Star Season: Pick your ideal 12 players to star in a one-season All-Star Edition." Great stuff over there. Well I manually went through the entire post and wrote down everyone's 12 selections. I then counted it all up and made some subpar charts on Google Sheets because I am incapable of using that R program or whatever the fancy cats over at /r/dataisbeautiful use. I am now making a post here in order to share with everyone my findings.


Right off the bat you can tell I am slightly bad at making charts. And there's only three charts lol. Here is my Google Sheets in case anyone wants to look around it or even use the data to make their own charts that are a lot better than mine! If you do make better charts, let me know cuz' I wanna see the beauty you've put together.

Now for some fun numbers:

  • 45 different users created their own All-Star lists for a total of 538 individual nominations. Pretty nifty sample. (one person only listed 10 so that explains why 45 multiplied by 12 doesn't work here lol)

  • 70 individual players were selected. A few of them weren't necessarily previous or current cast members. You people are weird.

  • There is an obsession with Bill Hader (rightly so) at /r/LFNY . 78% of the user created All-Star Seasons had him as a player. Aka 35 of the 45 lists contained Bill.

  • I was totally expecting Vanessa Bayer to be used A LOT more. She was only picked 5 times out of the 45 lists. Ouch. While Kate McKinnon was on 64% of /r/LiveFromNewYork 's lists. (so, she made it onto 29 lists out of 45. Why do I feel the need to break down the math...)

How I Went About Making these lists:

  • I used the first 12 names you wrote down (don't worry, I read through all the posts! No need to feel left out here if you replied to someone and were like "bro we totally have the same list!!, exceeept I would axe A and B and replace them with C and D." I included lists like that even though you never explicitly made your list. You just need to trust me here. I used logic and made sure to include the people you wanted to.)

  • If you mentioned having a hard time picking between two players for a spot I went ahead and made the decision for you because bud, it's a fantasy league for a sketch comedy show, not picking where to put your skill points on your RPG character. I simply picked the first name that you had typed. Ex: "I can't pick between Andy Samberg and Jimmy Fallon for this spot!!!!!' Well, buddy you're going with Andy today because I say so.

  • Honourable Mention: A lot of people designated Norm MacDonald as their WU person of choice. But I only included his name if he was one of the first 12 names you typed. No secret 13th spot for anyone.

  • some people wanted players who weren't ever actually cast members but more of they did a cameo like once or a couple of times. I kept these players on their lists. This is a reddit post. Not a dissertation

  • I did not include my own All-Star list at all in the data.



In the previous matchup, Barbie Instagram (Donald Glover) beat The Day You Were Born (Amy Schumer) by a vote of 75-66.
