Is Saturday Night Live New Tonight, April 27?

Is Saturday Night Live new this week? Read on for everything you need to know about the April 27 SNL episode. 

How to Watch

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

It's hard to believe there's only a handful of episodes left before SNL wraps what's been an incredible Season 49. The month of April alone has brought history-making, record-shattering installments so far.

On April 6, Saturday Night Live legend Kristen Wiig returned as Host, and she was inducted into the Five-Timers Club with help from Matt Damon, Martin Short, Paula Pell, Jon Hamm, and Wiig's former SNL castmates Fred Armisen and Will Forte.

And on April 13, The Fall Guy star Ryan Gosling followed that up with an absolutely hysterical episode (we're still rewatching the "Beavis and Butt-head" sketch). Gosling's third stint pulled the show's highest ratings since Billie Eilish's 2021 double-duty ep as Host and Musical Guest.

So what does tonight have in store? Below, all the info on who's hosting this week's SNL, and whether it's a repeat.

Who's the next SNL Host?

But it won't be Lipa's first experience performing comedy. The three-time Grammy winner — who also had a funny, if abbreviated, turn on Day Drinking with Seth Meyers — joined Jimmy Fallon for a musical sketch, "Val and Hal, Holiday Lounge Singers" when she was a Tonight Show guest on December 4, 2023.
