Now in its 41st season, Saturday Night Live is a cultural institution. A landmark show that has produced some of the most iconic characters and funniest moments in television history. The fact that each show is broadcast live makes the accomplishments of the cast and guest host even more impressive. However, if there has been one consistent weakness of SNL over the years, it has been with the guest hosts. For every host who knocks it out of the park, such as Alec Baldwin and Tom Hanks, there are hosts who totally bomb on the program. Whether they are uncomfortable in a sketch comedy format, don’t relate to the material, take themselves too seriously, or are simply not funny. The history of SNL is littered with terrible hosts. Here are the 13 worst SNL hosts of all time.
13. Donald Trump
To be fair, Donald Trump was not the worst SNL host ever. And the fact that he was on the program gave the show’s ratings a bump. And while Trump wasn’t unfunny on the show, you can’t really say he got a lot of laughs either. Basically, the best thing you can say is that the Donald was a good sport while on the program. He stood by while cast members such as Darrell Hammond and Chris Parnell did impressions of him, and he didn’t complain that he was being mocked incessantly by the cast members. He also didn’t sue the show, which, for Donald Trump, is quite impressive. This is, after all, a man who constantly sues anyone who says anything even slightly negative about him. He’s not speaking to Fox News as he runs for President. So the fact that NBC got out of this unscathed is pretty good. We’ll call this appearance an unmemorable draw.
