    I refuse to read articles like that that force me to click to a new page 10 times just to read a !@#%^& article.
    Just print the freaking list.

    Although it was annoying at least they put 10 or so on each page. The worst are those ones where you have to load a whole new page for each person.

    I agree with the list overall. There were a lot of people that I didn't know were cast members, or I had completely forgotten about.

    And Rachel Dratch should be in the very, very bottom. No way should she be ahead of Andy Samberg.

    And NO way should number 1 be number 1.

    Gilda belongs in the top 10. Pains me to do so, but I'd bump Tina to get her in there.

    Commenters don't seem to get that the list excludes those who never rose above Featured Players, although the writer might have done well to actually explain that.

    I have lots of other quibbles beyond Gilda's ranking but it's really not that important.

    EDIT: Oh, nothing on Nasim Pedrad? DOUBLE EDIT: Denny Dillon?

    The current (awful) cast is typically too highly ranked. Amy in the top 10? I wouldn't put Tina in the top 10 either, but am not too surprised by it.

    The fact that the bottom of the list didn't start with the entire '80-'81 and '81-'82 casts immediately makes the entire list suspect.

    I had no idea that Christine Ebersole was on SNL. I love her. I'm going to see if I can find some old skits.

    Lists like this are usually terrible.

    This one wishes it was even that good.

    I haven't read the list, but:
    1) Gilda Radner

    92) Tracy Morgan

    I agree with Doug that most of the Dan Aykroyd / John Belushi / Chevy Chase / Jane Curtin / Laraine Newman / Bill Murray / Garrett Morris / Gilda Radner era players need to be near the top.

    Dana Carvey and Mike Myers deserve to be near the top, too.

    You know, I've been watching SNL consistently for ten years. And I watched it growing up (missed some in the 90's.)

    The current set of players are just as talented as the first, and I get annoyed with all the "crappy current cast" comments (not necessarily here, but in the SNL threads in general.)

    People have been saying that for over 20 years. You're really going to tell me you Phil Hartman was untalented? Tina Fey?


    Completely unrelated...Steve Martin/Alec Baldwin/Justin Timberlake should so be on this list. JT in particular. He owns this show when he appears.

    Even though I've never seen Melanie Hutsell on the show, I used to work with her dad. He is a hell of a nice guy. Not in the least comedic, if that's a word.

    Yikes. What a bad list. Complete nobodies ranked ahead of people who actually wrote for the show. Totally I knowledgeable listing.

    Oh lord. Yeah. She was not good. She would probably be in my last three. And possibly my very last. She may be nice, but she's not terribly funny.

    Maybe I have issues with toothy gals. I don't care for whatsername from this season, either.
