10. Kristen Wiig says goodbye to ‘SNL’
Saturday Night Live, NBC
It was the kind of megasentimental indulgence Lorne Michaels would normally not permit – yet this was a special occasion. Wiig got a lavish graduation party: Mick Jagger and Arcade Fire serenading her with "She's a Rainbow" with her castmates singing along, a dance-off with Seth Meyers, even Jon Hamm shimmying on the sidelines. When she took her last twirl with Michaels, it was a genuinely moving moment that seemed to sum up the whole history of SNL.
