Okay, we'll own it. Things got a little busy so we're playing a bit of catch-up when it comes to this week's edition of NBC's Saturday Night Live with host Carey Mulligan (Promising Young Woman) and musical guest Kid Cudi. So we have a look at the table read waiting for you- but before we get to that? Yup, it's Thursday so that means it's "live promos" time- with Mulligan and Kid Cudi being joined by SNL cast member and Kenan star Kenan Thompson.
In the first promo, Mulligan is the proud recipient of an official nickname from Thompson (and it actually is a pretty good one); while in the second promo, Thompson has some concerns about Mulligan's ability to move away from her super-serious roles- and we think she puts his mind at ease?
And as promised, here's a look at Mulligan from Wednesday's table read:
