After a few weeks off, “Saturday Night Live” is set to air its three last episodes of the year December 5th, 12th, and 19th, and the show’s going out with a bang booking a trio of high-profile guests hosts that should get everyone watching. Jason Bateman, who’s hosted once before, will kick off the last three episodes on the 5th, while Timothee Chalamet hosts for the first time on the 12th, with his musical guest being none other than Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band!
Kristen Wiig, who’s still one of the show’s most iconic alum, wraps up the year on the 19th, with Dua Lipa as the musical guest. It’ll be Wiig’s fourth time as host, and no doubt some heavy hitters will pop up, alongside (presumably) season MVP’s Jim Carrey & Maya Rudolph as President-elect Joe Biden and future VP Kamala Harris. No doubt Alec Baldwin will be back as Trump too, but hopefully, his old “30 Rock” co-star Tina Fey might show up to lend former cast-mate Wiig some support. After all, Fey & Wiig both showed up to help send off the “At-home” digital versions they did last spring when Covid-19 first reared its ugly head. I’m sure SNL will want to end this difficult, endless year on an upbeat note.
