9. Dana Carvey (1986-1993)
Carvey's ongoing talk show with "The Church Lady" during his seven-year SNL run was easily better than half of the real ones out there. (We'll take a marathon of hers any day over Carson Daly.) In a typical episode, Carvey would chastise celebrity visitors for their crazy real-life antics in interviews that would give most PR reps nightmares. If only all hosts were so bold.
However, those that didn't tune into SNL until later on might be quicker to recognize him when he's rocking a frizzy blonde wig, horn-rimmed glasses, and a flannel shirt as Wayne's World co-host Garth Algar.
