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 we're nearing the finale of what's been an incredible season of Saturday Night Live. In October 2023, the show came back strong for Season 49 following a slightly-shortened Season 48. It kicked off with Pete Davidson returning to host an episode that began with a heartfelt cold open and featured a hilarious Barbie parody

Davidson wasn't the only former cast member to return to 30 Rock; Kate McKinnon also hosted a holiday episode complete with cameos from a few beloved alums. 

Subsequent SNL episodes in 2023 and 2024 found Bad Bunny pulling double duty as Host and musical guest, while stand-up comedian Nate Bargatze became a new favorite SNL Host in a highly-rated October 28 episode

And on December 2, 2023, Oscar winner Emma Stone became the youngest member of the Five Timers Club. Will she be the season's sole induction? Read on to find out!

Wiig was an SNL cast member from 2005-2012. Remembered for her impressions and an extensive arsenal of elastic-faced characters, including Target Lady, Gilly, Penelope, and Dooneese, Wiig remains a major part of SNL history alongside former co-stars Will Ferrell and Bill Hader.

Wiig has previously hosted in 2013, 2016, and twice in 2020. April 6's musical guest is British singer-songwriter Raye.
