Owen Wilson, Kim Kardashian West, Rami Malek and Jason Sudeikis are set as the four opening hosts of the new season of “Saturday Night Live.” Yes, Kim Kardashian. Even Lorne Michaels will pander to ratings.
Musical guests for each corresponding host are Kacey Musgraves, Halsey, Young Thug and Brandi Carlile. Not pulse racing exciting, but decent enough.
We don’t know if Kate McKinnon has agreed to come back. Kenan Thompson and Cecily Strong have indicated they will, Pete Davidson is a strong maybe, we know Colin Jost and Michael Che are there, and Aidy Bryant. Anyone who had an exit plan has been stymied by the pandemic, although we did see Kate in a couple of big commercials this summer.
The first show is October 2nd. Hopefully by then they’ll figure out who’s going to play Joe Biden and do some funny stuff with the president. And Maya Rudolph can be expected to return as Kamala Harris since she just won Emmy for “SNL” playing the Veep.
