Saturday Night Live entered its 48th season in a pretty precarious position, with the loss of eight seasoned cast members, the addition of four new faces, and a few much-needed improvements. This latest chapter of the show has welcomed its fair share of new hosts: Miles Teller, Keke Palmer, and Austin Butler represented a new generation of Hollywood stars, while musical artists like Megan Thee Stallion and Jack Harlow performed double duties, and Brendan Gleeson proved an interesting left-field selection. Tempering this newness, SNL also brought the likes of Amy Schumer, Dave Chappelle, and the duo of Steve Martin and Martin Short back to Studio 8H. The quality of the sketches proved just as varied as the hosting lineup. Before the show kicks off its 2023 run on January 21 (without Cecily Strong, who made her exit in the final episode of last year), let’s toast the best moments from the season (so far). As always, let us know what we missed in the comments.
This list is in chronological order. An updated version will run after the season 48 finale.
