Is Saturday Night Live New Tonight, April 20?

Here's the lowdown on who's hosting Saturday Night Live tonight, and whether it's a new episode. 

By Samantha Vincenty

Is Saturday Night Live new this week? Here's everything you need to know about the April 20 episode. 

How to Watch

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

SNL has been on a serious hot streak. The week after Ramy Youssef's SNL debut, beloved alum Kristen Wiig returned on April 6 to become a Five-Timer and had the audience howling with gems like "Jumanji" and the horror movie trailer for Pilates

If you were wondering who could possibly follow an SNL episode hosted by an all-time-great cast member, April 13's Host was the perfect answer. After making a brief cameo in Wiig's monologue the weekend prior, The Fall Guy star Ryan Gosling returned to Studio 8H and delivered a perfect episode, cold-opening with a fresh installment of his recurring "Close Encounters" sketch with Kate McKinnon and revived his ponytailed font hater from his 2017 "Papyrus" short with Kyle Mooney. 

And then there was the "Beavis and Butt-Head" sketch that had everyone cracking up —even the cast

Below, all the info on who's hosting this week's SNL, and whether it's a repeat.
