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.
Seth MacFarlane hosted the first "SNL" since 2010 to feature new cast members at the start of the season -- Aidy Bryant, Tim Robinson and Cecily Strong (Kate McKinnon joined the cast late last season) -- and he was ... fairly excellent. The last time "SNL" premiered after the Olympics we were unfortunate enough to get Michael Phelps as host.
