If it's Wednesday then you know what's up when it comes to NBC's Saturday Night Live. Earlier this week, viewers were officially introduced to this week's host Daniel Kaluuya (Judas and the Black Messiah) as well as musical guest St. Vincent. That means it's time to check in with this week's table read- and thanks to the long-running sketch comedy series' Instagram Stories, SNL fans were treated to more than one peek inside the read-through.
Here's a look at Kaluuya in the middle of the table read today (and more in the images above)- and don't forget that Carey Mulligan (Promising Young Woman) takes the hosting handoff on April 10, with Kid Cudi as the episode's musical guest:

SNL also holds the title for the most nominated television show in Emmy history with over 275 nominations (once again, not including specials and digital series). The long-running sketch comedy and musical series is executive produced by Lorne Michaels, produced by Steve Higgins and Erik Kenward, and directed by Don Roy King.
