Subject: I'd say there's 3 kinda distinct eras recently

There's the Hader/Samberg/Sudeikis era which sort of ended around 2012, which is probably the last era of the show to really produce "stars" who are now doing movies and stuff. Then there was the era with Taran and Vanessa and Jay which overlapped a bit with the previous era, where the show was definitely better than it was when Wiig and Fred were dominating but there were still a lot of recurring sketches and Anderson/Sublette crap that was dragging the show down.

'12-'13 and '13-'14 they were trying stuff out, most of which ultimately didn't work (Hiring Tim Robinson as a cast member, then the 3 new FPs plus Mike O'Brien in Season 39).

Then the most recent era staring with Season 40 this particular cast has found its footing and the stars of the show now are Leslie and Kate basically, with most of everybody else in the cast doing pretty good work (except for Cecily). I agree that sometimes it seems like Kyle & Beck should be doing their own better, weirder show. The writing has definitely taken a turn for the better in the last 2 or 3 seasons I think, mostly due to Kelly & Schneider's influence (and also Day and Seidell becoming a better version of Sublette & Anderson basically).
