Saturday Night Live has been off the air for two weeks at this point. So what should fans expect to see tonight on NBC?

SNL last checked in with a new episode back on January 29. Spider-Man: No Way Home actor Willem Dafoe became the 11th first-time host in 12 episodes of season 47.

Unfortunately, we won’t see a new host take the stage on Saturday. There will not be a new episode of Saturday Night Live tonight.

NBC will instead continue with its primetime coverage of the 2022 Winter Olympics. The games in China have put all NBC late-night TV shows on hiatus, including The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and Late Night with Seth Meyers.

What to watch instead of Saturday Night Live tonight

While there will not be a new episode of SNL tonight, fans have several options when it comes to revisiting past shows and sketches.

Peacock subscribers have access to the previous 46 seasons. The show’s official YouTube channel features monologues, vintage sketches, “Digital Shorts,” cut for time sketches, and “Weekend Update” bits from across the decades.

If you’re looking to combine your love of Saturday Night Live with the Olympics, then the show has you covered there, too. SNL recently put out a montage of its Winter Olympics-inspired sketches over the years.

Saturday Night Live will return with a new episode after the Olympics. The next new episode is scheduled for February 26. John Mulaney returns to host alongside musical guest LCD Soundsystem.
