SNL Season 34: By the Numbers

"New York Magazine" prepared for this week's impending finale of "Saturday Night Live" by breaking down season into statistical categories including "Total Sketch Appearances By Cast Member," "Most Frequently Impersonated Celebrity," and "Guest Appearances In Skits."

Unsurprisingly, Kristin Wiig ruled the school, appearing in the most sketches per episodes and overall, besting the next most popular comedian (Jason "Floyd" Sudeikis) by 25 sketches over the year. Amy Poehler and Seth Meyers pulled up the rear only because "Weekend Update" takes almost all of their time.

Also unsurprisingly Obama, McCain, Biden and Palin were the most impersonated people; Palin the least because she's the only character played by a guest rather than a full-time SNL-er. Which brings us to the most frequent guest star: Tina Fey.
