Saturday Night Live (Season 32)

"Saturday Night Live" aired its thirty-second season during the 2006-2007 television season. Tina Fey and Rachel Dratch left after the previous season to work on the NBC sitcom "30 Rock" while Chris Parnell, Horatio Sanz, and Finesse Mitchell were fired due to budget cuts. Bill Hader, Andy Samberg, Jason Sudeikis, and Kristen Wiig were immediately moved up to repertory status. Due to budget cuts, no new repertory castmembers or featured players were hired, a phenomenon that hasn't happened on the show since its 23rd season (the 1997-1998 season). After a long slump in the ratings starting after season 27, this season's episodes have pulled in big numbers in episodes hosted by Dane Cook, Alec Baldwin, Jeremy Piven, Rainn Wilson, and Peyton Manning. With Tina Fey's departure, "Saturday Night Live" returned to having one male and one female anchor on Weekend Update with the inclusion of Seth Meyers as Amy Poehler's co-anchor. Don Roy King was hired as SNL's newest director.

Much like season 31, Andy Samberg created another popular Digital Short that aired around Christmastime; this time, it was the risque, R&B video spoof "Dick in a Box" (on the episode with Justin Timberlake as host and musical guest). The short won a Creative Arts Emmy for Outstanding Music and Lyrics.

This season began on September 30, 2006 and ended on May 19, 2007 with 20 episodes produced. A clip show special called "Saturday Night Live: The Best of '06-'07", highlighting "SNL"'s best sketches and Weekend Update segments from this season has aired twice on television, and is now available on DVD.
