But all this is meaningless when asking whether this was a good year for the show creatively. Because if we look at SNL in terms of how groundbreaking and funny it was this season, "spectacular" is not a word that comes to mind.

Saturday Night Live Season 42 kicked off with a super-charged, finely-tuned episode that felt more like mid-season than a premiere.

This episode definitely feels like a finale, insofar as there are a lot of excellent sketches that may have been held back for this week and a few calculated risks that pay off.

Season 42 of Saturday Night Live had some undeniable high points, but it often felt like a case of style over substance.

In a season that's going to have a lot of Clinton-Trump sketches, there's a lot that's encouraging here.
