Saturday Night Live has been on a political high since the 2016 presidential campaign, with ratings gains and nine Emmy Awards, including trophies for best variety sketch series, supporting actor (Alec Baldwin), supporting actress (Kate McKinnon), actress (Melissa McCarthy) and guest actor in a comedy series (Dave Chappelle).

Last season, The Hollywood Reporter caught up with some of the stars and behind-the-scenes figures responsible for the show, and Colin Jost connected the show’s success with the political sketches. “Politics right now is probably the closest we've come to a full-blown national phenomenon as anything in a long time, and any time people are paying more attention to politics, it's good for our show,” he said.
