The most successful hosts of late -- Justin Timberlake, Emma Stone, Christoph Waltz -- never try to make the show about them. They try to integrate themselves into the cast, basically becoming a cast member. The Miley Cyrus installment was mostly about Miley Cyrus. And, it's funny, in the few sketches that she wasn't playing herself or an exaggerated version of herself, she was good. Unfortunately, there just wasn't a lot of that.

Kevin Hart came with a ton of energy (perhaps too much at times), but the material was mostly second rate. It certainly wasn't a terrible show, but it wasn't a good or particularly memorable show, either.

With "SNL" coming off a break, and only one more show until a long break, this week's show felt stagnant. As we all place are wagers on if we'll see the return Ed Grimly in next week's Martin Short-Paul McCartney, here's this week's Relevancy Poll.

Jason Sudeikis said goodbye to his interpretation of Mitt Romney on Saturday night. He seems to have a renewed energy that he was missing the last two seasons. It's a shame that this will be his last.

Is Kate McKinnon The New Kristen Wiig?

Mike Ryan | Posted 01.05.2013 | TV
Mike Ryan

Only nine segments aired on the Louis C.K.-hosted "Saturday Night Live." What's even more remarkable is that a grand total of five sketches were killed after dress rehearsal. So it goes without saying (but I will anyway, for some reason) that airtime was at a premium this week. On to the sixth Relevancy Poll of the season we go ...

Aidy Bryant had a much better week than the previous two. But, still relegated to just a couple of backup roles. I am going to make a bold predictions by stating that, next week, Aidy Bryant will be nowhere near 14th on this list.

Mike Ryan

Always following in the footsteps of "SNL" Scorecard, the "SNL" Relevancy Poll now kicks off its season as well. Remember, the Relevancy Poll is less about pure performance as it is a combination of buzz and airtime from Saturday night's show -- an opening show that featured three brand new cast members and, somehow, nobody got shut out. It also featured a casting decision that will change the balance of power on the show for one recently promoted repertory player, at least for a good part of the season.
