“Saturday Night Live” Returns January 15th with “West Side Story” Star Ariana deBose and Rapper Roddy Rich


“Saturday Night Live” is coming back in ten days.

The host will be “West Side Story” star Ariana deBose. Musical guest is rapper Roddy Rich.

The news does not address the COVID problem at NBC’s 30 Rock, who will return, if there will be a live audience, a band, or what’s happening. It’s hoped that everyone will be well, and the show will go on as normal.

These new guests aren’t big gets, but deBose is on her Oscar campaign for Best Supporting Actress so this is important for her. Roddy Rich, if you like him, enjoy.

There will be two more new shows in January. and then we’ll see how February pans out. “SNL” will be dealing with the Olympics, so we may not see them again until the end of February or beginning of March.
