Thanks to a strong main cast, and four incredibly promising newbies who’ve seen more airtime than previous featured players (with the exception of poor Jay Pharoah), 2011’s SNL offerings were pretty strong. Sure, there were weak spots. Lots of them. But this is a time of celebration.
With that, here is the best SNL had to offer in 2011 (in airdate order).
Mr. Wizard’s World
This is the Tale of Captain Jack Sparrow
“Someone Like You”
Kim Kardashian’s Fairytale Divorce
Jason Segel Monologue
