10 Best (and 5) Worst Sketches from "SNL" This Season

By Josh Kurp | Seriously Random Lists | May 21, 2012 |

#10. "André the Giant Chooses an Ice Cream Flavor"
Episode: Jason Segel (November 19, 2011)

Mercifully doesn't overstay its welcome. SNL should do more of these non-sequitur sketches.

#9. "Underground Festival: Columbus Day Assblast"
Episode: Ben Stiller (October 8, 2011)

RIP Ass Dan.

#8. "The Real Housewives of Disney"
Episode: Lindsay Lohan (March 3, 2012)

Why SNL doesn't do more sketches just featuring their talented group of female comedians is beyond me (we demand more Nasim!); "The Real Housewives of Disney" is a clever idea on a stale topic, and even Lindsay Lohan doesn't screw things up.

#7. "Kings of Catchphrase Comedy Tour, Vol. 2"
Episode: Charlie Day (November 5, 2011)

Charlie "Jack-Knife" Day makes for a wonderful Dane Cook. He gets douchebag just right.

#6. "Arlene and Tim"
Episode: Melissa McCarthy (October 1, 2011)

Yes, it's just McCarthy's character from Bridesmaids, but we're talking about (the original) Sookie here. Therefore, your argument is invalid.

#5. "Maya Angelou Prank Show
Episode: Maya Rudolph (February 18, 2012)

"Sister Maya, was this an act of malice?" "No, Brother West, it was an act of whimsy." Line of the season?

#4. "What's Up with That?""
Episode: Maya Rudolph (February 18, 2012)

I just realized we'll never see this again:


And that makes me sad, almost as sad as...

#3. "Someone Like You"
Episode: Emma Stone (November 12, 2011)

I HATE YOU COPYRIGHT ISSUES FOR FORCING ME TO EMBED THIS VIDEO FOR SOME WEIRD JAPANESE WEBSITE. Also, I see a GIF of Emma Stone crying and shoving ice cream into her mouth at least once a day. I never complain.

#2. "Downton Abbey on Spike"
Episode: C-Tates (February 4, 2012)

Even if you haven't see Downton Abbey, like me, you can still appreciate the brilliance of lines like, "What's Downton Abbey? Basically it's about a bunch of honkies that live in a church. Or maybe it's a museum. Either way, they don't got wi-fi."

#1. "Les Jeunes de Paris"
Episode: Zooey Deschanel (February 11, 2012)

This is the corgis of SNL sketches -- it's impossible not to smile when watching it.

And now the five worst:

#5. "The Manuel Ortiz Show"
Episode: Anna Faris (October 15, 2011)

#4. "Crab Blast 2012"
Episode: Zooey Deschanel (February 11, 2012)

#3. "Miss Drag World"
Episode: Eli Manning (May 5, 2012)

#2. "Delinquent Girl Teen Gang"
Episode: March 3, 2012

#1. "It's Gilly"
Episode: Sofía Vergara (April 7, 2012)
