How my ratings work:
There are 3 rankings possible. These will be chosen as my personal top 3 skits of the episode. The rankings go from bronze, to silver, and then gold. Gold will take on the glory of being as my favorite skit of the night.
There will also be an honorable mention. This may be only a short line from a character, a group of characters, or maybe even a whole skit that I find worthy of getting a spotlight.
DISCLAIMER: These are my PERSONAL ratings. Keep in mind I am a 20-year-old college student so our humor may not be the same. The skits that I think are the funniest may not be the funniest to you, and that’s okay! That being said, I would love to hear if you do disagree! Below is a poll with all skits from this episode, PLEASE vote for your favorite skit from this episode! There is also a comment section below, let me know your thoughts!
BRONZE: Santa Song
Wasn’t expecting to love this skit when I started watching it, however it grew on me very quick. Billie’s acting was a very pleasant surprise this episode and pairing it with her phenomenal voice made it so perfect. The ladies in the back jumping in with their jokes made me laugh as well. All around a very enjoyable skit.
Wow…I must say…this was painful to watch. Painful because it was a little TOO accurate! Let me tell ya, I’m on TikTok EVERYDAY. Every clip in this skit, was referenced from a real TikToker. I understood EVERY reference! So accurate it was scary! Because of this, I thought this skit was very funny.
GOLD: Lonely Christmas
I definitely missed Kate Mckinnon while she was away in the beginning of the season. I am SO happy she is back! This skit was absolutely hilarious with its dark humor. These are the kinds of segments where you know the character is going to come back with more, and you can’t wait for what they will say next. This was a 10/10 Skit for me.
Honorable Mention: Weekend Update (Andrew Dismukes)
Andrew Dismuke’s amazing animals shocked me. Love the dark humor route.
If the octopus says that he will die in 7 days makes me think… that next episode he might have a skit where he “dies.” It would be really well thought out if that ends up happening, I guess we will find out soon!
2nd Honorable Mention: Angelo Christmas
Deeply wish this skit wasn’t cut for time. This has been the second appearance of Angelo and his wonderful performances. Angelo ranks as one of my favorite skits ever. The simplicity of the joke will never be old to me. Another feature of this skit that I love that that this segment is perfectly set up to always allow a host to jump in, which makes each one unique in its own way.
