Will Ferrell Gets Shaken By Ryan Reynolds on 'Saturday Night Live' in a Star-Studded But Middling Episode

Will Ferrell returning to Saturday Night Live to host the show for his fifth time. Usually that’s a big deal, but it’s not always depicted in sketch form on the show, and unfortunately this was one of those times where they glossed over it. But in the end Will Ferrell still had a blast being back on the show, and he got a little help from Ryan Reynolds as a surprise guest star, along with several familiar faces making one of the most star-studded political debate sketches in recent memory. How was the rest of the episode? Find out as we run through the best and worst sketches from the Will Ferrell hosted Saturday Night Live.

The Best

2020 Democratic Debate – It’s night and day when you compare the kind of satire SNL is able to produce when mocking the Democratic side of politics nowadays.

Just enjoyed this outstanding skewering of the crowded Democratic debate and pretend no other political sketch was done.

Party Song – There’s something that is always hilarious about Will Ferrell putting on a faux warm smile and acting like an unintentionally discomforting grown man.

No matter, this was a great sketch.
