What should Saturday Night Live fans expect to see tonight on NBC?

When it comes to providing a distraction or commentary mixed with comedy, late night TV has risen to the occasion this week. But many fans are still eagerly awaiting the return of Saturday Night Live.

Saturday Night Live was last seen on Dec. 19 with host Kristen Wiig and musical guest Dua Lipa. The show’s holiday hiatus extended into last week, denying audiences a chance to see how SNL would handle the Capitol attack. It’s hard to imagine how SNL could have made a sketch out of the chaos while ignoring it wouldn’t have been an option either.

In the end, it was for the best that SNL remained on a break. So what should fans expect to see tonight?

There will not be a new episode of Saturday Night Live. The next we hear from SNL, it will be during the administration of President Joe Biden. Whether we’ve officially seen the last of Alec Baldwin’s President Trump or if he’ll get an SNL sendoff remains to be seen.

NBC will be airing the NFL Playoffs game between the Baltimore Ravens and Buffalo Bills starting at 8:15. Expect that to run into SNL’s typical timeslot if you’re looking to catch a rerun.
