  1. Thank you entire SNL cast and crew members for the laughs to get us through this dumpster fire of a year! Love all of you!

    It was a great season.

  4. The Infamous Shawn Shaw May 25, 2021 @ 1:17 am

    Don’t these people have to pay an audience to be there?

  5. pancakewaitress May 25, 2021 @ 1:21 am

    at Thanksgiving??

  6. SNL is great! Keep it up team and come back even better.

    I completely forgot about the whole "if you can hold your breath for 10 seconds you don’t have covid" thing. That feels like a million years ago, around the time I was in line at the grocery store and got an email saying my university was going online for 3 weeks.

  8. still no laughs

  9. sweezle squee May 25, 2021 @ 1:30 am

    This cast is so epic.

  10. Someone give Kate a hug

  11. the only one that is funny in this latest cast is Keenan. And he has been a part of a few casts..

  12. as much as i hated on this seasons writing in the last part of it, i really appreciate this

  13. Aidy and Pete at the end >>>

  14. Favorite of the night! 🥲

  15. Fermin Jimenez May 25, 2021 @ 1:37 am

    My favorite opener!!!

  16. William Pazdera May 25, 2021 @ 1:38 am

    Has anyone else ever noticed that Matt Gaetz looks like what would happen if Colin Jost ran into a brick wall?

  17. Why does it sound like that most of the cast isn’t returning?? I hope that’s not the case

  18. As the fog lifts, people are starting to realize how badly they were served by our elected officials (mostly on the left), the mainstream media, and the "experts". Being a liberal will eventually illicit as much outrage as being a Trump supporter now. The worm always turns. Yin and Yang.

  19. Savannah Berrey May 25, 2021 @ 1:46 am

    Aaa I kinda like ya all!

  20. Christina Auer May 25, 2021 @ 1:47 am

    I wasn’t expecting to cry at an SNL episode. But, here we are. ❤️

  21. They really need to cull the cast. Chris Rock should stay tho.

  22. Ooh Mr Rock’s looking very chiselled and handsome there 🔥

  23. Kevin Schoenfeld May 25, 2021 @ 1:48 am

    Am I the only one that doesn’t like Aidy Bryant? There’s just something about her I don’t like.

  24. What’s worse is that "this is my first line the entire season" guy from 3:17 STILL isn’t in the opening montage even under the Featured Players portion. And he got cut out of the "Live from New York It’s Saturday Night" bit too!

  25. Probably the best cold open ever

  26. David Pumpkins Jr. May 25, 2021 @ 1:49 am

    "Let’s take a look at the highlights of the season…"

    (Elon Musk as Wario)

    "Was that it?"

  27. Gamersoldier100 May 25, 2021 @ 1:49 am

    We thank each and every one of you for all of your work, time and keeping us laughing!!👏👏👍👍🙏🙏🤣🤣🤣

  28. Tiffany Miner May 25, 2021 @ 1:50 am

    Props to them for making so many people laugh in a time where people really needed to laugh about something.

  29. Man snl sucks

  30. Paul Godlewski May 25, 2021 @ 1:53 am

    Thank you all. Love you to

  31. WHY IS THIS SHOW STILL ON THE AIR!?!? Lorne Michaels must have made a deal with Satan. Also, if they require EVERYONE in the audience to be vaccinated then why are MASKS still required??!

  32. Rizen Tablada May 25, 2021 @ 1:57 am

    Did not expect the cold open to get me emotionally. The last time that happened was when Kristen Wiig graduated from SNL and everyone was dancing and saying their goodbyes.

  33. Julius Seizure May 25, 2021 @ 1:57 am

    They forgot that guy who got fired for the anti-Asian remarks.

  34. Shirley Rhodes May 25, 2021 @ 1:58 am

    Best opening ever!!!! I love each and every one of you guys!!

  35. Please read this carefully ;

    Every one of us has sinned against God. We’ve lied, we’ve stolen, we’ve sinned sexually, and we’ve taken His name in vain; which makes us liars, thieves, fornicators and blasphemers … Yet this is only four of our many transgressions .

    The problem is, we can never ‘outweigh’ our sin with good works because God is perfect in Holiness, meaning his standard is beyond our reach. He is also perfect in Justice, meaning, he will bring EVERY sin to light. The punishment for our sin is death, and Hell; a place of Eternal Fire, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth .

    Fortunately God is also perfect in Love, so 2000 years ago He left his throne in heaven, and came to earth as a man named Jesus Christ. While here, he lived a perfectly righteous life, only to take the punishment that We deserved; Our sinless creator became Our sin, and endured a gruesome death on a cross for our sake .
    Right before he died, he said ‘it is finished’ .. meaning, the debt for our sins has been paid in full. And on the third day, he defeated death and rose from the grave. So now, we can go free from the wrath of God’s judgement not by earning it, but rather, as a free gift of grace ..

    Except gifts can be either accepted or rejected. So this is what you must do in response ;

    Humbly admit to God that you have sinned against him. Then, confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord, and your Savior. ( Romans 10:9 ) .

    Do this, and you will be saved .

    If you do so sincerely, God will grant you a new heart which no longer finds comfort in sin, but instead desires to read and obey his word. He will also grant you Eternal life in his presence; The greatest pleasure on earth doesn’t even come close to what God is preparing for believers in the afterlife .

    You’ve been informed ; Now the choice is yours. What you do with this information will determine where you will be for ETERNITY.. Meaning, this is the single most critical decision you will EVER make.

    Jesus Christ awaits you this very moment. Do not put off surrendering your life to him, because your tomorrow isn’t guaranteed… and as it is written ( Hebrews 9 : 27 ) ;

    ‘It is appointed unto man ONCE to die, but after this, THE JUDGMENT’ .

    Do they seriously have to make everything political like shut the hell up

  37. KingAndrew5000 May 25, 2021 @ 2:00 am

    there was no insurrection

  38. Garrett Reyman May 25, 2021 @ 2:00 am

    This cast, right here, might be one of the greatest casts they’ve ever had

  39. I feel for the horn section who have to play their instruments through their masks.

  40. SNL blows!

  41. give that dude another line!!!!

  42. Damn Alex Moffat looking like a snack here

  43. End of an Era baby

  44. Cecily was really trying to hold it together.

  45. Julius Seizure May 25, 2021 @ 2:08 am

    Goddamn SNL is so trash. Literally none of what they said was even funny. Still played for laughs, like who the hell is laughing? It’s even worse when you know that everything has to be exactly how it’s written, or else Lorne Michaels gets his diapers in a bunch. Don’t know why they keep putting that dude in charge. Pete Davidson is also the worst.

    I was watching the cold opening, and I saw those four just standing there, looking emotional. I’m pretty sure those four have been on the longest, and without even thinking, I started to cry a bit. Hopefully they aren’t leaving, but I was pretty sure they were at that moment. They’re my favorite cast members, it would be an absolute heartbreak to see them go.

  47. 😍 Cecily

  48. Chris just shows up whenever he wants

  49. 😅❤️
