The 2012-2017 rookies are a huge pileup of nervous kids, thrown into the cast and basically auditioning on the air. It's SNL as a reality-show competition, where the prize is a gig at SNL. It'd be mean and unfair to rate them at this point, particularly since most would have to set themselves on fire to get onscreen. (A few are gone already.) Best of luck, gang. Remember, bombing on SNL is often the dawn of a beautiful career.
