(Also Fred Armisen, but c'mon... he shoulda left three seasons ago.)

Here are our picks for which sketches were merely bad... and which were superbad.

Fortunately, many of them have learned how to be web savvy in TV land, though and we can follow them on Twitter now! Here are a few worth keeping up with over the holidays.
