The wait is over. Saturday Night Live returns tonight, March 30, with a brand-new episode. And once again, it will be led by a first-time host.

Saturday Night Live has been off the air since March 9 when Josh Brolin capped a three-week stretch of attention-grabbing episodes. Now, SNL will look to restart that momentum as it heads toward the final stretch of season 49.

And with that, the spotlight will be on tonight's host Ramy Youssef. The actor and stand-up comedian will make his Saturday Night Live debut. Rapper Travis Scott joins him as the musical guest.

Youssef made a name for himself with his Hulu series Ramy. Over three seasons, Youssef collected a Golden Globe win and two Emmy nominations.

He arrives at Studio 8H coming off another big year in his career. The 33-year-old played Max in the Oscar-nominated film Poor Things and lent his voice to the Disney animated movie Wish as Safi.

What to expect from Saturday Night Live tonight

Ramy Youssef is the sixth comedian to host Saturday Night Live this season, joining Pete Davidson, Nate Bargatze, Kate McKinnon, Ayo Edebiri, and Shane Gillis. Those episodes were among the season's best, confirming that SNL knows exactly what to do when it has quality comedic talent in the building.

Last we saw Saturday Night Live, it delivered on one of the most anticipated cold opens in recent memory. A cameo from Scarlett Johansson elevated the show's take on Senator Katie Britt's State of the Union address.

So what will SNL do tonight? An infomercial from Donald Trump selling his new $60 Bibles seems like an obvious choice. It would give James Austin Johnson another chance to shine with his word salad delivery as the former president. And with Easter on Sunday, it could easily add to SNL's collection of holiday sketches.

Saturday Night Live airs tonight, March 30, at 11:30 p.m. ET. The show is also available on Peacock.
