SNL Season 34: The Top Five Guest Hosts

By

It's nearly impossible for Saturday Night Live to reach its full potential unless the show's bookers are able to secure an actor who's not only talented, but also willing to really commit to the process. Thanks to the show's heightened level of exposure, we weren't too surprised to see that this year's crop of hosts each seemed to fully embrace the challenge (and along the way, did their best not to rely on cue cards). But, if you'll allow us to paraphrase Morrissey for one quick second, the fact of the matter is that some hosts are better than others. With that in mind, here are Vulture's picks for outstanding guest-host contributions this season.
