List RulesVote up the people who did the best job as hosts of SNL from 2010 through 2019.

Despite cast changes, Saturday Night Live in the 2010s found a new kind of balance and settled comfortably into their cold opens and fresh selection of hosts. Even with several hosts returning multiple times, the 2010s saw a lot of hosts. If you can't remember everybody who got to open the show, then refresh your memory with this list of the people who were hosts from 2010 through 2019, ranked from best SNL 2010s hosts to worst SNL 2010s hosts.

In early 2010 a Facebook group petitioned to get Betty White to host SNL and succeeded, and the actress became the oldest person to ever host Saturday Night Live. Melissa McCarthy hosted five times and earned a nomination for each appearance for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series.

Just like the seasons and episodes themselves, the Saturday Night Live hosts of the 2010s range from great to grueling. Vote up the actors, musicians, and comedians who did the best job at hosting SNL in the '10s.
