Is ‘Saturday Night Live’ New Tonight, April 6, 2024?

While many celebrities have received the chance to host Saturday Night Live over the years, only a select few get into the SNL Five-Timers Club. Having hosted the show five times is somewhat of a celebration for those who cross that milestone. Over the years, stars like Steve Martin, Tina Fey, and Tom Hanks received the honor. And given that it is Saturday, Studio 8H prepares for another night full of laughter and hilarious moments. So who is hosting SNL tonight, here are all the details about tonight’s episode.

I think it’s just special and people always talk about it and want to watch it, and it’s something that you can count on every week that will just bring you joy and make you laugh.”
