4) The returns of Andy Samberg and Kristen Wiig
Honoring the show’s past is a great thing, and part of a hallowed tradition of the show. But how can we honor something if we don’t have time to miss it in the first place? Samberg, along with his cohorts in The Lonely Island, ended the “Digital Short” era in almost immaculate fashion last spring, only to reappear with a new single during Adam Levine’s hosting duties. Wiig had one of the most emotional goodbyes in show’s history during last season’s finale, but returned ten months later only to bring back characters that were stale long before she initially left. There’s a way to incorporate a show’s past without overshadowing its present. In this regard, “SNL” missed the mark on multiple occasions.
