Saturday Night Live: Dave Chappelle, Dave Grohl Are Ready to Call It

Grabbing the baton passed on by previous hosts Chris Rock, Bill Burr, Issa Rae, Adele, and John Mulaney, Dave Chappelle will be taking the stage of this weekend's episode of NBC's Saturday Night Live with a lot riding on the line. While we're proud of the long-running sketch comedy/music series' record-setting sixth live episode in a row, all eyeballs will be focused on "Weekend Update" as well as Alec Baldwin's Donald Trump, Maya Rudolph's Kamala Harris, Jim Carrey's Joe Biden, and Beck Bennett's Michael Pence for the first show post-U.S. Presidential Election- an election that still hasn't been officially called as of this writing. And the ringmaster of it all is none other than Chappelle… but no pressure or anything.

Dave Chappelle and Foo Fighters Make a Bold 2020 Prediction – SNL

So with that in mind, here's what we've been waiting for since Tuesday…

Ladies and gentlemen, Chappelle and Foo Fighters lead David Grohl are ready to call it…

Now here's a look back at Wednesday's intro video for Chappelle's return to Studios 8H- with Foo Fighters joining him (following the season's previous musical artists Megan Thee Stallion, Jack White, Justin Bieber, H.E.R., and The Strokes) as they celebrate the 25th anniversary of their self-titled debut album.

Saturday Night Live's 46th season includes Beck Bennett, Aidy Bryant, Michael Che, Pete Davidson, Mikey Day, Chloe Fineman, Heidi Gardner, Colin Jost, Kate McKinnon, Alex Moffat, Kyle Mooney, Ego Nwodim, Chris Redd, Cecily Strong, Kenan Thompson, Melissa Villaseñor, and Bowen Yang. Che and Jost serve as head writers, with Bryan Tucker serving as senior writer. Lauren Holt (The Filth), Punkie Johnson (Space Force), and Andrew Dismukes (Comedy Central's Colossal ClusterFest, New York Comedy Festival) are joining the cast as feature players.

Not including specials and digital series, Saturday Night Live has won over 70 Emmy Awards, the most for any show in television history. 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. Ken Aymong serves as a supervising producer, with Lindsay Shookus, Erin Doyle, and Tom Broecker producing. The series is produced by SNL Studios in association with Universal Television and Broadway Video.
