Who Got the Most Screen Time on SNL This Season? (www.vulture.com)

The weirdest season of Saturday Night Live since the one with Anthony Michael Hall is over. It began with the one-two punch of hiring and then firing Shane Gillis (we don’t have to talk about that again), and it ended trapped in its own apartment complex, like Olivia de Havilland in Lady in a Cage. Eddie Murphy returned to the show that he saved in the 1980s, and a crowded Democratic primary made room for plenty of impersonations and stunt casting. Especially stunt casting. In all the years Splitsider and Vulture have been measuring SNL screen time, the most important cast member is the concept of fame, and celebrities and former cast members dominated season 45.
