'SNL' in photos: The best moments from 'Saturday Night Live' Season 48

The 48th season of "Saturday Night Live" (SNL) has wrapped up, and fans are already looking back on the best moments of the season. From political satire to celebrity impressions to musical performances, this season had something for everyone.

One of the standout moments of the season was the return of former cast member and current U.S. Senator Al Franken, who appeared in a sketch poking fun at the controversial hearings for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Franken, who resigned from the Senate in 2017 amid sexual misconduct allegations, joked about his own situation in the sketch, which was well-received by audiences.

Another memorable moment was the cold open of the show's Halloween episode, which featured a hilarious spoof of the hit horror film "Get Out." In the sketch, host Chance the Rapper played a man visiting his girlfriend's family for the first time, only to discover that they are all white people who have been brainwashed by the "Sunken Place."

Other highlights of the season included Alec Baldwin's continued portrayal of President Trump, the return of fan-favorite character Stefon (played by Bill Hader), and musical performances by artists like Kanye West and Halsey.

Of course, not every moment of the season was a hit. Some sketches fell flat, and there were a few controversial moments as well. One particularly polarizing moment came when comedian Pete Davidson made a joke about Republican Congressional candidate Dan Crenshaw's eye patch, which many viewers found distasteful.

Despite these missteps, however, the 48th season of "Saturday Night Live" was largely a success. The show continued to tackle political and social issues with humor and wit, while also providing plenty of laughs and entertainment for viewers.

Looking ahead to the 49th season, fans can expect to see some changes. Several cast members, including Kate McKinnon and Kenan Thompson, have hinted that they may be leaving the show. And with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic still affecting production, there may be some adjustments to the show's format and schedule.

Regardless of what the future holds, however, one thing is certain: "Saturday Night Live" will continue to be a beloved staple of American television, providing humor, commentary, and entertainment for audiences of all ages.
