The best part about Saturday Night Live is how it finds a way to consistently reinvent itself and stay relevant for the current era. There are some traditions and basic structures that get passed on, but in general, the purpose is about figuring out what is funny right now. The hosts and musical guests help with that, but it’s also a testament to the writing staff and the cast staying on top of what works right now. No one knows what the future holds, but I truly hope Saturday Night Live is kicking another 50 years from now, loosely resembling what it looks like today but fresh and modern for two generations from now. And if the hosts are still leaving each other notes, all the better.
