‘Saturday Evening Stay’ Season 48 Winners and Losers

The comedy number-crunchers over at The Saturday Evening Community (@thesnlnetwork) have performed it once more, compiling year-end screen-time statistics for Saturday Evening Stay’s abbreviated Season 48. And the numbers don’t lie. So let’s see what the charts have to inform us about which solid members got here out on prime.

WINNER: Kenan Thompson


Shock, shock. The longest-tenured solid member in SNL historical past appeared on display greater than every other participant for the second yr in a row. (What is perhaps shocking is that is solely the third time that Thompson has topped the SNL screen-time rankings.) He logged a powerful 123 minutes and alter. A shocking challenger to Thompson’s throne? Cecily Robust, who completed center of the pack with 64 minutes and 30 seconds — in solely six episodes! (She missed the start of the season together with her Off-Broadway present, then bailed after the Christmas episode.) That’s greater than 10 minutes of display time per episode for Robust, simply eclipsing Thompson’s measly 6.

LOSER: Punkie Johnson

Uh-oh. Johnson ranked lifeless final in display time this season, even after her promotion to full solid member. All 4 of the rookies logged extra time than Johnson, who additionally had hassle getting on the stage final yr (in Season 47, she completed second-to-last, besting solely freshman Aristotle Athari who was let go over the summer time). Each last-place finishers over the previous two seasons — Lauren Holt and Athari — didn’t return the next yr, so it’s a scenario value monitoring.

WINNER: Bowen Yang

Final yr’s mass exodus, with Kate McKinnon, Aidy Bryant, Kyle Mooney, Pete Davidson, Chris Redd, Melissa Villasenor and Alex Moffat all leaping ship, meant somebody was going to should fill the void. The largest beneficiary? Yang, who went from tenth on the “take a look at me” charts to second this yr. The truth is, he was simply three minutes shy of taking out Thompson for prime canine of Season 48. Yang was usually referred to as on to steer off the present this season, giving him additional “Stay from New York, it’s Saturday evening!” visibility.

LOSERS: Devon Walker and Michael Longfellow


In our Season 48 predictions, we forecast that not less than one of many 4 new featured gamers wouldn’t be requested again for Season 49. That’s simply historical past — one of many new youngsters appears to get held again yearly. Based mostly strictly on display time, it's Walker and Longfellow who got here up brief, ending inside 30 seconds of each other for the brief straw. Marcello Hernandez, nevertheless, was proper behind Andrew Dismukes, a promising begin for the rookie. 

WINNER: Heidi Gardner

Somebody was going to should take over for McKinnon, Bryant and Robust, and it seems like Lorne Michaels tapped Heidi Gardner to step into these footwear. Her display time rating jumped this season to fourth, simply behind Colin Jost (which shouldn’t depend since his Weekend Replace minutes are assured each week). Ego Nwodim held regular as a top-six performer, whereas Chloe Fineman additionally ascended into the highlight, doubling her on-screen minutes regardless of the abbreviated season. 

The brand new queens have arrived.
