Season 45 Finale Finds Saturday Night Live Staying Home Once Again

NBC's Saturday Night Live found a winning formula with the previous two editions of "SNL at Home", so we're wondering what the cast and creative teams will have in store for this weekend's third edition. That's right, this Saturday, May 9, at 11:30 pm. ET/PT, the long-running sketch comedy/music series will wrap up its 45th season from home with a season finale produced remotely and will once again include familiar elements like "Weekend Update" alongside original content from the cast. With details still being worked on, there's still no word on who will be the kick-off host (previously, Tom Hanks and Brad Pitt) or musical guest (previously, Chris Martin and Miley Cyrus). Here's a look at the official announcement, showing off the finer moments from the filming of the previous "SNL at Home" (and by "finer moments", we mean the bloopers that we're hoping getting released once the season wraps):
