with Strong as the female leader.
Cecily Strong and Kate McKinnon were HUGE finds currently in the "featured" category. But both of them were truly "regulars" from the get-go in my opinion. No need for apprenticeship. They are both TERRIFIC.
And Vanessa Bayer has also proven to be wonderful, as is Nasim Pedrad if only they would have given her real material. With the loss of Abby Elliot and Jenny Slate the wonderful Khardashians skit disappeared, along with Angelina Jolie, etc. But Vanessa Bayer has brought out some great characters, and she and Cecily Strong doing "not porn stars anymore" ads are always hysterical (I always look forward to find out what will be Cecily's final crazy sexual act mention while Vanessa says something else, while both keeping a straight face and the audience explodes with laughter).
The new fat girl and guy did absolutely nothing I enjoyed this season.
