23. George McGovern (Host, 1984)
McGovern’s laugh-free stint — which came a month and a day after he dropped out of the presidential race — was about as embarrassing as Nixon on Laugh-In. In one uncomfortable bit, the three-term Senator asked SNL’s studio audience to help him pay off his enormous campaign debt. The joke hit way too close to home… and only got less funny when McGovern began physically taking bills from the folks in the front row.
