With that kind of star power, the April shows are sure to please and hopefully bring the show more hardware. The Lorne Michaels created and executive produced show was the number one entertainment program last season in the 18-49 demographic and won 8 Emmy Awards in 2021, including Outstanding Variety Sketch Series.

In addition to the live broadcast on NBC, “SNL” will stream the remainder of the season live on Peacock (11:30 p.m. ET/8:30 p.m. PT). Stream every season of “SNL” now on Peacock.
