“Saturday Night Live” Announces Hosts, Musical Guests for Next 3 Shows Including Charli XCX’s Rematch


“Saturday Night Live” returns on February 26th with previously announced host John Mulaney and musical guest LCD Soundsystem. That should be a big one.

Then comes Oscar Isaac, promoting his new mini series, “Moon Knight,” and Charli XCX making up her end of the year non appearance when COVID almost shut down the show.

On March 12th, “SNL” will hope to cash in on “The Batman” being a hit with Zoe Kravitz as host and Rosalia as musical guest. The ratings will be entirely based on “The Batman” ginning up interest.

Interesting that none of the hosts are Oscar nominees. These would be the weeks for heavy campaigning. So that’s weird. Mulaney’s whole 18 month real life soap opera of drugs and divorce should be a ratings getter. Isaac has his “Star Wars” following.

Let’s hope the show stays topical. Also the whole cast should be back including Cecily Strong.

Here’s Rosalia’s new single:
