It began with Miley Cyrus singing about the summer scandals of 2015 and ended with Fred Armisen doing a scathing, straight-faced piss-take on performers' one-man shows. In between, Saturday Night Live's 41st season gave us Larry David as a dead-on Bernie Sanders, both Trump avatars and actual Trumpfoolery, a bunch of unforgettable musical performances, loads of cameos from alumni (Maya Rudolph, your drunk take on "12 Days of Christmas" is worth its weight in two toodle-toos) and a handful of genuinely wonderful sketches. If you've been tuning into Ryan McGee's "3 Sketches You Have to See" posts every week, you've had the chance to catch up with the show's best every Sunday. Now here are the season's best, from Presidential impersonations to an oh-my-god game show skit that belongs in the SNL hall of fame.
