It has been feast or famine this season when it comes to Saturday Night Live‘s schedule. What should fans expect to see tonight?

There have been 12 episodes so far this season, delivered in chunks separated by extended breaks in between. While this isn’t completely out of the ordinary when it comes to SNL’s production schedule, it’s safe to assume that COVID-19 quarantine protocols have also contributed to filming episodes in batches.

Currently, Saturday Night Live is in the middle of one of those runs. John Krasinksi, Dan Levy, and Regina King have hosted the last three episodes dating back to Jan. 30.

Tonight, it will be four in a row. There will be a brand new episode of Saturday Night Live tonight.

Your host is Bridgerton star Regé-Jean Page. He’ll be joined by musical guest Bad Bunny.

If you’re unfamiliar with Page, then you are among the few people who haven’t watched Netflix’s Regency era drama Bridgerton. It is the streaming service’s most popular original series since its launch.

Bridgerton has certainly raised Page’s profile. He has since landed a lead role in the upcoming Dungeons & Dragons movie and he’s had to address rumors he’s in the running to become the next James Bond. Hosting Saturday Night Live is undoubtedly another significant milestone in Page’s career that will introduce him to an even wider audience.

How to watch Saturday Night Live

Bridgerton’s massive audience should boost Saturday Night Live‘s viewership tonight. The scandal involving Senator Ted Cruz and his trip to Mexico could also provide inspiration for the cold open or a “Weekend Update” segment. Basically, there is a lot to look forward to on tonight’s episode. Here are the details you need to know on how to watch:
