‘SNL’ and Guest Host Blake Shelton Present the Music Video For “Wishin’ Boot”

EDIT

There was no way ‘SNL’ was going to snag country music superstar Blake Shelton as a guest host and not do a country music video parody. After all, Shelton’s experience as a comedic performer is limited, but his experience in crooning songs about heartbreak and troubled times is not. So this brings us to a bizarre little song called ”Wishin’ Boot,” which is literally about a magical cowboy boot that shows up when people are in need and deliver exactly what they want.

‘Saturday Night Live’ started 2014 as a show that was rebuilding; it ended the year in a noticeable groove that foreshadows, hopefully, many more great things to come. The following 10 sketches represent the calendar year of 2014—which includes the last half of the 39th season and the first half of this current 40th season. So, with that explanation out of the way, here are the 10 best ‘SNL’ sketches of 2014. Like all lists, you will like some choices and not like others.

'SNL': Chris Pratt and Aidy Bryant Share a "Booty Rap"

If you went to some kind of comedy university, there would probably be an entire class available on the subject of how awkward white people rapping is inherently pretty funny but difficult to pull off without feeling too hacky. Whether or not 'SNL' pulled it off with last night's "Booty Rap" sketch is something we'll let you decide, but at least guest host Chris Pratt and the always reliable Aidy Bryant attack their material with gusto.

'SNL' Scorecard: Chris Pratt Makes a Great First Impression

The 40th season of ‘Saturday Night Live’ has arrived (as well as the fifth season of ‘SNL’ Scorecard -- and I just can’t believe I’ve been doing this for five years) and, boy, what a difference a year makes. Last year’s season premiere featured six new cast members and was one of the clumsiest shows in recent memory. (Hey, remember ‘New Cast Member Or Member of Arcade Fire’? Gah.) This season, we have two new cast members and, more importantly, a significantly smaller cast. This was the first ‘SNL’ in over a year where I felt some actual intimacy with the cast. Look at newcomer Pete Davidson: he was everywhere! It was almost as if this incarnation of ‘SNL’ was built just to make us forget about last season. It didn’t completely work (I’ll never forget you, Rick Shoulders), but with a first-time host like Chris Pratt (who is a natural) and what feels like a much more focused show, this was a really great start.

This past weekend's 'SNL' with first-time host Andrew Garfield brought some exceptionally weird, if memorable skits, so will 'A Million Ways to Die in the West' star Charlize Theron fare any better in her first outing in over a decade? Find out in the first promos, as Charlize shows Taran some of her wild west stunts, and faces Aidy Bryant's revenge, like ya do.

Last week's 'SNL' installment significantly raised the bar for the 2014 season with the hosting debut of 'Pitch Perfect' player Anna Kendrick, but can 'Neighbors' star Seth Rogen keep the same standard of quality with his third hosting turn, alongside musical guest Ed Sheeran? Find out in the first 'SNL' promos for this Saturday's latest, alongside first-time promo maker Aidy Bryant!

'Saturday Night Live' Will Add Two Rookies to the Mix

Over the course of the last couple months, 'Satuday Night Live' has lost at least three cast members, with Kristen Wiig, Andy Samberg, and Abby Elliot out the door, and with a fourth, Jason Sudeikis, all but saying he wasn't coming back. Those are some shoes to fill, and it looks like they're bringing in some new kids.
