Is Saturday Night Live New Tonight, May 25, 2024?

Here's what to know about who's hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend, and who's performing as Musical Guest. 

By Samantha Vincenty

Last week, Jake Gyllenhaal hosted Saturday Night Live for his third time. During his monologue, the Road House actor rocked Studio 8H with his Season 49-themed rendition of Boyz II Men's "End of the Road." He also starred in a wild Scooby-Doo parody with Musical Guest Sabrina Carpenter and assumed the role of every frustrated passenger who's tried to reschedule a flight. 

How to Watch

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