The forty-first season of "Saturday Night Live" closed out with one of its best episodes of the entire year, handily refuting any and all claims that "the show just isn't funny anymore."

Ariana Grande earns a solid B in her first time hosting the show, and really...none of us should be surprised.

Hopefully it won't take as long as the past couple seasons since there's only one new cast member as opposed to half a dozen new faces this time.

After watching this epic miscalculation, though, it's clear that nobody wins; not Trump, not the show, and certainly not us.

Lorne Michaels must have waited to have Armisen on at the end of the season because he knew there was a good chance of ending on a high note.

Had someone told me at the top of Saturday Night Live that Ariana Grande would do a funnier impression than Jay Pharoah in a sketch, I'd have thought they were crazy.

What did "S.N.L." and producer Lorne Michaels get? The ratings, but then again, any new viewers tuned in to see a joyless, unfunny show, which ended in a curtain call with Mr. Trump and the cast that played like a hostage video.

Saturday's night's season premiere, hosted by Miley Cyrus, showed again the fundamental flaws in a live weekly sketch show hosted by a celebrity, but also reaffirmed the show's valuable position and its potential when it gets things right.

These aren't great sketches, but Jones is great in them.

    It just isn't funny anymore, and almost all of their sketches are political. What happened to the good ol' sketches from the 90s or even way back with Eddie Murphy when there were good, original sketches?

    SNL shines during Presidential election years! This time is no difference. Almost episode has been great...Looking forward to Ariana Grande on tonight's show!

    Love Adam Driver's performance. He was very funny and entertaining to watch. I would love to see him host again! Soon!

    It has been on for 40 years and it is 37 years since it has been funny. Lorne Michaels infects all of TV because he does not know why is funny.
