So let's take a look at our weekly checksheet for NBC's Saturday Night Live. With only two days to go until Bridgerton and the upcoming Dungeons & Dragons star Regé-Jean Page and rapper (and WWE 24/7 Champion- for now) Bad Bunny take the stage of Studio 8H, we've got an intro video and a look at Page during table reads. Which means next up? A promo, which we got Thursday night so that means we have Friday and Saturday for random, unexpected stuff. Looks good… everything's on track… so let's check out the promo.
In this single promo (Hmmm… maybe another one tomorrow?), Page and SNL's Melissa Villaseñor are inspired by Bad Bunny to try some different takes on their own names. Spoiler? "Regé-Jean Bunny" actually kinda' works:
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. Alec Baldwin returned as Donald Trump, with Maya Rudolph joining them as Kamala Harris, and Jim Carrey as Joe Biden for part of the season before cast member Moffat took over the role just before the holiday break (with Bennett continuing Mike Pence).
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.
