  • SummaryThe 1996 season of “Saturday Night Live” might be considered SNL’s Greatest Hits, since it features an almost complete roster of faces long-familiar to the late night program. 7 of the 20 hosts were former cast members (“Distinguished Alumni”), the sum of which include Chevy Chase and Mike Myers, as well as five in a row hosted by Dana Carvey, Chris Rock, Robert Downwey, Jr., Phil Hartman and Martin Short. 8 of the remaining 13 hosts were former multi-appearance hosts, including Tom Hanks, Alec Baldwin and John Goodman.

    Almost all of the “new” cast from the previous season have returned after their inaugural run. Nancy Walls and David Koechner were replaced by newcomers Ana Gasteyer and Tracy Morgan. David Spade, who vowed to stick around until SNL returned to its moments of glory, finally left after six seasons, leaving an open position for promising featured player Chris Kattan.

    Additionally, the Roxbury Guys (Will Ferrell and Chris Kattan) pursue Pamela Lee, Mary Katherine Gallagher (Molly Shannon) headbangs with Aerosmith, and Norm MacDonald’s fake news on “Weekend Update” reveals Frank Stallone as the source of major problems throughout the world.
