'Saturday Night Live' cast power rankings
We analyze the current cast’s overall importance to the show
13. Aidy Bryant
Along with Robinson, Bryant is a first-year cast-member paying her dues. And yet, she’s also held down the coveted post-monologue sketch as lead in two “Girlfriends Talk Show” sketched with fellow newbie Cecily Strong. Bryant’s persona is so fierce that sometimes she threatens to overshadow the more subdued members of the cast. On the other hand, she more than held her own against Louis C.K. in the already-legendary “Lincoln” sketch. Bryant’s role on the show could go either way: she could be off the show by the Fall, or the equivalent of Kristen Wiig by this time next year. Anything is possible at this point.
