TAYLOR SWIFT BETTER BE ON HERE SHE WAS DAMN FUNNY
Monica Vinco (6 hours ago)
I do think they should've given Ariana more material. She's REALLY funny.

Taylor swift ahead of Christopher Walken? I don't think so and Kristen Stewart too just because she was sexy and swore? Damn millenials worship at the fountain of mediocrity! And Ariana Grande "Is as funny as she is talented" I don't know what your implying but as her music is audio vomit made for 13 yo girls I'm gonna say she can't be that funny, to put her one performance ahead of Alec Baldwin's 17 performances is the act of fangirl!

How could you not know the rock was gonna kill it?

#1 Adam Driver. fixed it
A Tragedy (3 days ago)
No I do not agree with the entire list. Taylor Swift was irritating, and unfunny through the entire show. JT as number one is a given the list. Don' like his music but his comedic talent is right on. Betty White should be on there and Alec Baldwin should be at the top.

Eli Manning should have been on here
David C Witkin (3 days ago)
WHAT? No Betty White? SHAME ON YOU

Pffff, Adam Driver should not have been an honorable mention. He's got to be top 5. That oil barron skit was one of the funniest I've seen on SNL in a long time.
Wayne Rembert (7 days ago)
The Rock has always been excellent on the mic.
Wayne Rembert (7 days ago)
Dwayne Johnson should not be on this list if you ever seen WWE. He's one of the greatest talkers.
Wayne Rembert (7 days ago)
I'm guessing the people at WatchMojo have never seen WWE. Rock was always great on the mic.
Playboyyrocky (7 days ago)
Ariana Grande was on Disney channel before her singing so had practice and was funny on her show my daughter usr to watch so hosting SNL was shouldn't have been such a surprise that she did good
Stephanie Brown (8 days ago)
Kristen Stewart??? Seriously.. .ggggggggah.... you list is not good.
Stephanie Brown (8 days ago)
Taylor Swift??? seriously... ohhhhhhkay
Hallie Harmon (8 days ago)
Just makes me wish JT would host soon!!!
M Loftin (8 days ago)
Charles Barkley and Peyton Manning? No.
Kasey (8 days ago)
Blake Lively and Sofia Vergara should make the list too.
Fancy Vizion (9 days ago)
The jury is still out about Charles Barkley's performance.
Patrick Todd (11 days ago)
I think Adam Driver is number 1 or 2. Especially with the Matt the Radar Technician sketch
A Smith (11 days ago)
Believe it or not, Katie Holmes (about 20 years ago) was a great host.
D G (12 days ago)
HOLD ON. I’m 0:37 into this video and a guy you put in the top-10 best hosts of all time is a top-10 “surprisingly good” host list? How freaking lazy can you be? This is absolutely stupid editing and channel management. Jesus Christ have some consistency
Terry Rosario (14 days ago)
Chance was not funny at all. And Taylor Swoft totally sucked. Alex Baldwin is terrible as Trump. And at parking his car. Kristin Stewart sucks. ADAM DRIVER AND HENSWORTH HONORABLE MENTIONS? Justin Timberlake is funny
shutterbird 13 (15 days ago)
Christopher Walken is all the way at #10? Seriously?
firebird65 (16 days ago)
Not sure why you'd have thought the Rock was a surprise. Professional wrestling is as much acting as it is sport (and by acting, I mean the promos). And a lot of that acting is comedy. Many of his promos are comedic gold.
itsbeadyeyes (20 days ago)
Adam Driver and Justin Timberlake were much better than some of the others, should have been much higher.
Sumaita U (21 days ago)
Taylor Swift was hilarious
I. Wynn Wynn (22 days ago)
Fun fact, Kristen novaclic is taller than Charles Barkley
I. Wynn Wynn (22 days ago)
Ariana did a much better job than Pete. In fact she actually did her job unlike Pete, to do impressions and sing!
firebird65 (16 days ago)
I did not see that episode, but from the brief clips shown here, wow, she looked like a total natural. Given her public persona, that is surprising. If she ever comes on again, I'll be sure to watch.
Tamu Malone (23 days ago)
Alec does a hilarious Tony Bennett😂😂😂
Jess 2324 (25 days ago)
Bring it on down to omelettevilleee
Stacey M (25 days ago)
Lin-Manuel Miranda? John Mulaney?
Matt Slater (26 days ago)
I don't know why people would be surprised Ariana Grande would be a great host. She was hilarious as 'Cat' on Victorious and 'Sam & Cat'.
6:28 why is she speaking portuguese??
Making fun of twilight is still funny
Lonell Fletcher (26 days ago)
Would’ve loved to have seen Kerry Washington in this list or at least in the honorable mentions. She delivered!!!
Lonell Fletcher (16 days ago)
firebird65 well, I was surprised because I knew her as a dramatic actress. Her comedic timing shocked and pleased me.
firebird65 (16 days ago)
Actually, NOT being on this list is a good thing. This isn't the list of best hosts. This is the list of people who everybody thought would suck but surprised people by actually being good. By not being on this list, that might mean the producers of this video figured she was already going to be a good host beforehand and would deliver, which according to you, she did (I didn't see the episode).
Sierra Burgress (1 month ago)
Obviously Taylor Swift is on there, she is amazing at everything and don’t tell me anything opposing that!

What about Chris Evert? She was a surprisingly funny host.

One of the funniest episodes ever was hosted by Derek Jeter, which was certainly never expected.
Whitney Ryan Garrity (1 month ago)
I'd submit Pamela Anderson's appearance in the 90's. Every single one of her sketches worked during a period when the regular cast had hits and misses.
elc1960 (1 month ago)
Add Halsey to this list (2/9/2019). She did a good job hosting, but the show sucked.
Mikala Hawkins (1 month ago)
lol why were ppl shocked about ari did they forget she was in victorious and sam and cat😂

I was surprised not to see Chris Pine on the list.

Ryan Gosling was incredible. How is he not on this list? PAPYRUS!!!!!!!!

The best SNL hosts are those who can laugh at themselves and current culture, Frank Zappa is among them (personal after watching the live-re-runs) and that is why they are the best.

Christoph Waltz deserves more than an honorable mention. NOBODY saw it coming and the episode is iconic.
harlequin (1 month ago)
most recently James McAvoy really owned his turn. Amazing episode

4:34 - yeah, NO
Emil Fogh (1 month ago)
I thought Eli Manning was also really good. Must run in the family... Especially the "text message evidence" sketch and the "motion capture" were great. And let's not forget the "Little Brothers Foundation", that was a great throwback to the "United Way" sketch also dropping a little "Peyton bomb" in the end. Great stuff... And you didn't even mention it!

Fight the real power!!!!!! Remember that with every bone in my body.........2019 and still true smdfh
Emily Marie (1 month ago)
I agreed almost all of these especially Taylor Swift, although I think the top two should have been “the Rock” and “Alec Baldwin”

Why is Adam just a honorable mention ☹

Borat was the best SNL host
Lily Frappier (1 month ago)
Adam Driver is only an honorable mention????
Mary Cage (1 month ago)
Glad someone finally recognized Peyton Manning's comedic talent. He is wasting his still young years not making a movie or two.
Dusk Dawg (1 month ago)
These are excellent picks

I was wondering why the rock was on here. I feel like everyone now knows hes a really funny dude.

10. Seven times?! Wow! 9. Charles Barkley is FUNNY. You should watch Celebrity Family Feud. 8. I’m not surprised Chance the Rapper is on this list. 7. I didn’t know the Rock hosted back in the day. And was part of the 5-Timers Club. 6. Taylor Swift - as a HOST? 😳 5. Wait, Alec Baldwin played Adam in Beetlejuice and there’s an unrelated actor named Adam Baldwin. Another “wait” moment... He hosted 18 TIMES?! 4. Kristen did great. 3. Well, I’ve seen Eli Manning’s episode. 2. Ariana should’ve been #1. She did FANTASTIC! 🤩 HM: I didn’t even know who Christoph Waltz was until SNL. 1. And look where Justin is now. A member of the 5-Timers Club. 👏🏾

Justin Timberlake was on the Mickey Mouse Club in the 90s doing sketches and musical numbers so it's not surprising he's a good host
Step 1: Cut a whole in the box
Alehector R (2 months ago)
I swear for like that whole show everyone forgot Ariana was a comedic actor first
Felicia (2 months ago)
I can't believe they put Barley on this list. I can't even watch sketches with him because they're so distractingly awful.
Lucas van B (2 months ago)
Dude Adam driver is number one,
David (2 months ago)
So... you didn't think someone that started as an actress in a comedy would do well?
Niamh-Creates (2 months ago)
I figured JT would be the #1. I remember when he first hosted SNL. I was excited (being a former NSYNC fan), but my husband was definitely not. He ate his words afterward and declared Justin Timberlake as one of the best SNL hosts "EVER", lol.

WHERE IS ADAM

They missed Tom Hanks. David S. Pumpkins had his own cartoon spinoff. At least mention that.

ADAM DRIVER FOR #1
Lyanno99 (2 months ago)
Ariana shouldn’t be in this list. Not only did she start her career as an actress but she played the breakout character of a sitcom. Everyone knew she had the comedic chops to deliver a good performance.
Tyler Bradfield (2 months ago)
Charles Barkley? Taylor swift? Kristen stewart? How about Donald glover he was amazinging even though he's a comedian. I'll agree on arianna grande she has great impersonations
Richard Rocha (3 months ago)
Why do Americans think this show is funny?
Kristi Robare (3 months ago)
Steve Martin should've been on this list. Many think he was a cast member. He was on as a host many times.

Christopher Walken should be number 1!
