How to Watch

Watch Saturday Night Live Saturdays at 11:30/10:30c on NBC and next day on Peacock.  

Saturday Night Live is back, and the Season 48 premiere was packed with endless laughs with Host Miles Teller leading the way.

The premiere marked Teller's SNL debut, starring in multiple hilarious sketches that flexed his funny bone for all the world to see. Kendrick Lamar returned as an SNL musical guest, performing tracks from his latest album, Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers. The Season 48 cold open was a cast-packed affair, featuring newbie cast members Molly Kearney, Devon Walker, Michael Longfellow, and Marcello Hernandez. After numerous longtime cast members exited last season, the fresh faces effortlessly filled the vacancy with hilarious punchlines. 

Season 48 is already shaking up to be one of the funniest seasons of SNL yet. Relive some of the hilarious highlights from the October 1 premiere. 

"ManningCast" Cold Open

Football season is officially back, and Teller commemorated the occasion by opening the show with a parody of Peyton and Eli Manning's “Monday Night Football” ManningCast. The cold open was perfect for the premiere, featuring a sketch-within-a-sketch style and special appearances from Shaun White and three-time Host Jon Hamm.

Teller and Mikey Day play bank robbers that have their heist hilariously interrupted by their hostage's obsession with the social media app BeReal. Because even when you're in the middle of a robbery, BeReal is "the only honest social media!"

"Rooftop Bar"

Rooftop Bar

Teller and Day teamed up again for the "Rooftop Bar" sketch, playing two finance bros that attempt to make conversation with two women (Ego Nwodim and Chloe Fineman) at a rooftop bar. The small talk is cringe-tastic, to say the least. 


"Send Something Normal"

Send Something Normal

Teller hosts the game show "Send Something Normal," where celebrity Contestants like Adam Levine (Day), Armie Hammer (James Austin Johnson), and Neil deGrasse Tyson (Kenan Thompson) must respond to their DMs from women in an ordinary way. It's not as easy as it looks!
