Yesterday, Hulu subscribers got a little year-end refresher on the year’s funniest and most popular “Saturday Night Live” skits—according to Hulu, that is.
Yesterday, Hulu subscribers got a little year-end refresher on the year’s funniest and most popular Saturday Night Live skits—according to Hulu, that is. The 38-year-old franchise remains a benchmark for comedy, and despite 2012 seeing the end of an era with the departure of Andy Samberg and Kristen Wiig after seven years, Hulu’s list proves SNL is still relevant, fresh, and funny.
1) “Disney Housewives”
This spoof of Real Housewives may have been Lindsay Lohan’s one moment to shine in 2012, but the real scene-stealer in this perfect parody was Wiig’s trashy, vodka-guzzling Cinderella.
2) “Undecided Voter”
In this hilarious, Onion-inspired pre-election skit, voters ask hard-hitting questions such as “What is oil?” and “Where’s my power cord?”
3) “Lazy Sunday 2”
What could be better than a lazy Sunday brunch? Two white dudes rapping about it, of course.
4) “Puppet Class”
Bill Hader’s hilariously creepy war vet makes this puppet workshop one to remember.
5) “Girl You Wish You Hadn’t Started a Conversation With at a Party”
Mixing a touch of Whose Line Is It Anyway? in with the usual SNL comedy gold, this sketch (featuring cast newcomer Cecily Strong) offers the wisdom of the ages: “War, hunger, diseases—it’s like, pick one.”
Though Hulu’s list made us laugh, we can’t help thinking of all the other great SNL skits from 2012 that didn’t make the list: Louis C.K.’s hilarious turn as Lincoln, Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s opening monologue turned Magic Mike parody, all of the Stefon segments, Maya Rudolph as Maya Angelou in a prank show called I Know Why the Caged Bird Laughs, and Sad Mouse.
