10 Most-Watched ‘SNL’ Sketches of Season 49

“Saturday Night Live” has been around for nearly 50 years, and yet the late-night comedy series hasn’t skipped a beat with its live sketches.

From this season’s “Hooters Waitress” skit starring Sydney Sweeney to the hip-hop panel with Timothée Chalamet portraying cultural appropriation in the music genre, the NBC program has found various ways to keep the show fresh, relevant and hilarious.

And when it comes to nailing a sketch live, viewers enjoy getting to see the comedians and guest hosts in their rawest form.

On Monday, the official “SNL” Instagram account revealed Season 49’s most-watched live sketches, so TheWrap decided to lay them all out in one place.

Check out the complete list, below:
