3. James Franco/Muse
4. Zach Galifianakis/Vampire Weekend
5. Tina Fey/Justin Bieber

Honourable mentions for class-act hosts - Gabourey Sidibe, Charles Barkley, Joseph Gordon-Levitt

MVP of the season - Jason Sudeikis
Now, I've always really liked Jason Sudeikis but I feel like he became a force to be reckoned with this season and was the saving grace of a lot of so-so sketches. Whether he is being deadpan or impersonating Adam Lambert or playing the Devil at Update, Sudeikis killed every time rarely having to resort to over-the-top antics or outlandish characters to get a laugh.
Special mention goes to Kenan Thompson who also became a highly valued player this season creating probably the most-loved recurring sketch of the season, What Up With That? Kenan is a consummate showman and puts 110% into everything he's a part of and I'm glad that he really got to show off his goods this season.

Now, over to you? Who were your favourite/least favourite hosts of the season? Favourite shows? Your MVP of the season? Comment, comment, comment!

In my opinion...
Top five hosts of the season:
1. Zach Galifianakis
2 Taylor Swift
3. James Franco
4. Betty White
5. Jon Hamm

Most Horrible Host of the Season:
January Jones!!!!!

Top 3 Best Shows:
1. James Franco/ Muse
2. Zach Galifiniakis/ Vampire Weekend
3. Betty White/ Jay-Z

Top 3 Most Disappointing Shows (as in, I though it would be funnier than it actually was):
1. Alez Baldwin/ Tom Petty
2. Gabourey Sidibe/MGMT
3.Megan Fox/ ????? (the only reason she's not first is because I wasn't expecting much in the first place)

MVP of the season:
I'm going to have to go with Jason Sudeikis too! I think that this was really his season!
Runner-up: Jenny Slate, who I found to be hilarious, and was Definitely better than both of the girls she replaced. I hope she sticks around, she could be big.
Biggest disapointment this season:
Andy Samberg!!! There was less digital shorts this season, and half of them were just stupid! I love The Lonely Island, but they were not on their game this year.

What up with that? was a surprise hit? I am surprised because besides the gag of Lyndsay Buckingham + a random real person on each time the sketch is completely one note. There is no suspense, no wonderful turn of phrase, just the same song over and over again.
