With the coronavirus pandemic bringing all TV productions to a screeching halt, this season of Saturday Night Live has not been the smoothest.

SNL season 45 premiered on September 28th, 2019 and although lockdown has been in place for the past two months, that hasn’t stopped episodes coming to air.

So is Saturday Night Live on tonight (Saturday, May 23rd)?

First, at 10 pm, NBC will honour the late Fred Willard by airing the episode he hosted in season 4 (which was way back in 1978 for those who don’t know).

At 11.30 pm, the network will air the third of SNL At Home episodes, which aired previously on Saturday, May 9th. This saw Alec Baldwin return to the show to reprise his Trump impersonation.

Season 45 was brought abruptly to a halt as a result of the pandemic and subsequently lockdown. Instead, production decided to round of the series with three ‘At Home’ episodes.

The first aired on Saturday, April 11th and had Tom Hanks as its host.

The next aired on April 25th and the third and final episode – which we will see a rerun of tonight (Saturday, May 23rd) – originally aired on May 9th, as mentioned above. SNL legend Kristen Wiig was the final host to round off the series.
