“SNL” host Andy Samberg was joined by 6 “SNL” alums on the season finale, as the 17 regular cast members took a back seat
That the “Saturday Night Live” season finale had to turn to alums Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, Seth Meyers, Fred Armisen, Maya Rudolph and even Martin Short for Samberg”s first hosting stint doesn”t bode well for all the new featured players. As Dennis Perkins put it, “I”ve made the case that, with enough time, this cast can find its stride, but tonight”s episode does little more than show how unlikely they are to get that time. With Samberg”s return promising a bigger audience, Lorne and company brought in a team full of ringers and told the current cast, with few exceptions, to clear the stage. For some, they”ll never get back on.” PLUS: Watch highlights, including Andy Samberg”s rapid-fire impressions with Seth Meyers and Bill Hader plus Tatiana Maslany in a Digital Short, ranking every Weekend Update host (Meyers is No. 10), and grading the new cast members (Brooks Wheelan and John Milhiser get a D-).
