List Rules Vote up the worst members of the current season of Saturday Night Live

A list of the worst current Saturday Night Live cast members, as ranked by fans and casual critics. SNL has been on for 44 seasons that haven't always been glorious. Known for scooping up the most talented improv and comedy actors on the underground circuit and turning them into comedy superstars, sometimes even a show this great fails. After many long-term cast members left in 2012, the newcomers were given a chance to shine, but not all did.

Every SNL cast has the comedy actors you hate, who are the worst members of Saturday Night Live. From newcomers to more veteran cast members, some of them just don't have the ability to work as a comedy team and disappoint on a weekly basis. This list features long-time cast members like Kate McKinnon and long-time sketch comedy veteran Kenan Thompson, as well as newer faces like Alex Moffat and Ego Nwodim, who maybe just haven't had a chance to prove themselves.

Who are the worst SNL cast members still on the show in 2019-20? This list features the entire current cast, including repertory and featured players.
