“Saturday Night Live” Returns with December Shows Featuring Bruce Springsteen & E Street, Dua Lipa, Morgan Wallen


Lorne Michaels is pulling out all the big guns for December “Saturday Night Live.”

For December 12th, he’s got Timothee Chalamet hosting and — drum roll — Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. That’s mega.

December 5th has Jason Bateman hosting and Morgan Wallen getting a second crack at the show after being exposed to COVID a few weeks ago and missing the show.

December 19th, the last show of 2020, has “SNL” former castmate Kristen Wiig and hot pop star Dua Lipa. If Wiig comes, can Will Ferrell stay away? I hope not. And many others, it is hoped.

Note to Lorne: Let Bruce and E Street do three songs, two from “Letter to You,” and one greatest hit. Please.
