49 Salutes to Saturday Night Live

From Reality Star Dramatizations to SNL Photobombing

— July 16, 2014 — Pop Culture
While some have described the recent SNL firings as a bloodbath, these salutes to Saturday Night Live show just how resilient the series and cast are. After losing Andy Samberg, Kristen Wiig and more in the last couple of years, this past one was touted as a time for rebuilding. Apparently the creators are going back to the drawing board.

Perhaps referencing these salutes to Saturday Night Live will help them remember the glory days of the skit comedy show. There are some key elements that can be revisited to make the show even better than the past. Unless, of course, Wiig and Samberg are willing to ditch their successful movie and sitcom careers to make a welcome comeback. Yet favorites Kate McKinnon, Taran Killam and Taran Killam still remain.
