Is Saturday Night Live new tonight on NBC? We’ve had a great run of episodes lately; will that continue? We’d love to see that happen, especially since Jason Sudeikis’ most recent episode is arguably the funniest of the entire season.
Unfortunately, we’re passing on some of the bad news here: There’s no new episode on the air tonight. During last week’s episode, we were told that: SNL will be taking this week off, and it’s currently set to return on Saturday, November 6 with an episode hosted by succession star Kieran Culkin.
Needless to say, we’re really excited to see what he’ll bring to the show, given how popular the HBO hit is – we just saw an appearance by Nicholas Braun in this past episode!
Aside from Culkin hosting the next new episode, there are other questions worth asking yourself. Take, for example, the status of longtime cast member and fan favorite Kate McKinnon. She has been away for the first few weeks of the season, mainly because she is working on a separate project. We do know that she is still part of the series and will return at some point; the mystery here is usually when she will come back and also how. There may be other cast members absent here and there throughout the season, so go ahead and prepare for that.
Overall, there’s a lot of fun stuff that we still expect the show to come to the table this season, and we’d say there will probably be at least two, if not three episodes in November. That’s how it typically works here.
