This past weekend’s “SNL” was the last for a month, and the show went out on good numbers.
The final tally was 4.975 million, a tad under the previous week but steady as she goes for January.
Willem Dafoe hosted and Katy Perry was musical guest. The show was uneven, but Perry brought the fire power with her strong performances– despite odd costumes and setting. Dafoe can do anything, and he was game for whatever the show threw at him.
Don Roy King has officially retired as the show’s director after 15 years. His last episode was the ill fated Christmas 2021 COVID show. There’s been no mention of his departure on the show. The new director, Liz Patrick, who’s been working with him all season, comes from Ellen DeGeneres’s talk show.
