Is Saturday Night Live New Tonight, June 22, 2024?

Here's what to know about tonight's SNL episode, and its Host and Musical Guest.

By Samantha Vincenty

Saturday Night Live has officially tallied the most-watched live sketches of Season 49.

How to Watch

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

It might not surprise you to know that Ryan Gosling and Mikey Day's "Beavis and Butthead" sketch was this season's most popular moment with 16 million views. Also racking up more than 5 million YouTube views each were Shane Gillis's "HR Meeting" sketch, the return of Marcello Hernández's "Protective Mom" with Pedro Pascal and Bad Bunny, Sydney Sweeney's turn as a "Hooters Waitress," and the instant-classic "Washington's Dream" sketch from Nate Bargatze's SNL debut.

It's hard to pick a favorite from such a dynamic season, but the numbers speak for themselves — and there are 20 episodes' worth of sketches to revisit on Peacock anytime. 

So who's hosting tonight's Saturday Night Live, and is it a repeat?
