‘SNL’ to air second ‘At Home’ coronavirus remote show

Two weeks after airing its first-ever totally remote telecast, “Saturday Night Live” is returning to Studio 8H (figuratively speaking) this weekend with its second “At Home” edition.

The inaugural “SNL at Home” averaged 6.7 million total viewers and a 1.46 rating, placing second for the season behind Eddie Murphy’s Dec. 21 hosting turn (which drew just shy of 10 mil along with a 2.5 rating). Excepting Murphy’s return (with musical guest Lizzo), the April 11 “SNL at Home” delivered the sketch series’ best results since May 4, 2019, when Adam Sandler hosted alongside musical guest Shawn Mendes (6.8 mil/1.61).

It remains unclear who will follow in Tom Hanks’ footsteps and serve as this weekend’s surprise host.
