After a mixed bag episode of NBC's Saturday Night Live that found host Regé-Jean Page (Bridgerton, Dungeon & Dragons) proving he's got serious comedic acting chops and musical guest Bad Bunny killing it on stage and also making for one funky house plant, this weekend's episode finds actor/musician Nick Jonas pulling double duty (before what we're assuming will be a multi-week break before a return for a final 5-6 for the season)- and he's not waiting on the weekly SNL media machine to get the word out. Taking to social media on Monday, Jonas posted a clip announcing that he was enjoying (???) the snow that was falling in NYC (more coming today, Nick) and that he was ready to go. When you're hosting and serving as the musical guest, we're guessing it's good to have that kind of energy in the tank.
Here's a look at Jonas's post from Monday, clearly enjoying the warm, cozy weather that comes with New York City in February:

And now here's a look at his new SNL promo:
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.
