Anna Faris is out. Emma Stone is up. EW’s season-long hunt to determine the best Saturday Night Live host kicked off last week, with voters celebrating Melissa McCarthy with an overwhelming 74.2 percent of the vote. Charlie Day (12.1 percent), Alec Baldwin (9.8 percent), and Ben Stiller (2.3 percent) survived to compete against Stone, who was well-received in her return to the show. Her awkward bridal-shower guest and 1964 Miss America winner held their own against Kristen Wiig’s comic creations, proving that Stone belongs in the conversation of talented recent hosts.
But who’s been the best host so far this season? As explained last week, this isn’t a popularity contest; simply “Who had the best Saturday Night Live episode?” Below, I’ve embedded one clip for each of the five hosts, just to remind you of their recent performances. Vote below, and the host with the least popular support will be eliminated, and the other four will advance next week to compete against Saturday’s host, Jason Segel. Ultimately, we’ll eliminate the less buzzy hosts and crown a Host With the Most at the end of Saturday Night Live’s season. Can anyone touch McCarthy, or is this race already won? Watch and vote below.
