In its 46th season, Saturday Night Live returned with a bang. SNL returned to in-person performances at the end of 2020, and concluded strong in spring 2021 with many masks, many guests, and everyone in Studio 8H adhering to strict COVID regulations, after failing to complete the previous season with socially distant, all-virtual events. Nature is a healer, and so on.
SNL, like every other comedy program, has its share of highs and lows, and this season was no exception. We're focused on the highlights today, pulling up the season's funniest, most memorable, most rewatchable sketches—from Philadelphia accent parodies to another John Mulaney musical banger to Timothée Chalamet spilling his heart out to a stop-motion little horse.
Saturday Night Live's 46th season debuted on October 3, 2020, during the 2020–21 television season, with host Chris Rock and musical guest Megan Thee Stallion, and ended on May 22, 2021, with host Anya Taylor-Joy and musical guest Lil Nas X.

What got Hotter in Saturday Night Live Season 46?
Episode 7 features host Jason Bateman and musical guest Morgan Wallen (who has been cancelled twice). When you need a chuckle, will you go back to SNL's pandemic-related routines about uncomfortable Zoom interactions? Most likely not. Social historians will likely be more interested in this year's skits on vaccines, social distance, and forgetting how to behave at parties than comedy lovers.
However, this digital short from Jason Bateman's December 5 episode contains some of the show's softer, COVID-adjacent humour, with a group of funny parents receiving the devastating news from their adult children that they won't be home for the holidays.
Episode 18 has Elon Musk as host and Miley Cyrus as musical guest.
HBO's Mare of Easttown went from being just another crime programme with a bit cryptic title to an old-fashioned prestige TV watercooler hit in only a few weeks. So, while this SNL spoof felt predictable, it was nonetheless entertaining, especially the way it relied heavily on regional accents and poked fun at the clichés of gritty dramas that give a view into the lives of “very specific whites.”
Episode 9 has Kristen Wiig as the host and Dua Lipa as the musical guest.
The 171st Division is entranced by an anachronistic performance by Kristen Wiig, Bowen Yang, and a surprise appearance by Dua Lipa, who recount a narrative of love, treachery, obscenity, and dramatic confrontation with a bothersome pair of red silk underwear. Come for the forceful singing, stay for Wiig's lovely Katharine Hepburn-style mid-Atlantic accent.
Episode 5 features musical guests The Strokes and presenter John Mulaney.
The return of John Mulaney to the show meant only one thing: another Broadway-inspired song about something strange yet commonplace. Mulaney reprises his role as a Times Square souvenir shop salesman who is clearly struggling to keep his business afloat during the pandemic, but even he is hesitant to sell “I Heart NY” underpants to a strangeo who wants to buy them, and enlists the help of all of Times Square's residents to explain why.

Who is hosting SNL in 2021?
As the presenter of Saturday Night Live, Billie Eilish will take the stage at Studio 8H on December 11th. She will perform the coveted double-duty job of host and musical guest, a role that has previously been held by Nick Jonas, Harry Styles, and Chance the Rapper.
In the first segment, Eilish discusses her forthcoming birthday with McKinnon as she prepares for her hosting and musical guest duties with her freshly darker hair. In another segment, the comic compares her own experience to that of the singer doing double duty by talking about portraying Jeff Sessions and Lindsey Graham in the same comedy for the sixth time. In a last quick-hit promo, she playfully refers to Eilish as “Bill” while reminiscing about the beauty of the holidays, which looks very different for Kate than it does for Billie.
McKinnon has been absent from the programme since the beginning of the season, filming Peacock's next Joe Exotic series, which is based on the viral Tiger King Netflix series, which soared in popularity during the start of the COVID-19 outbreak. In the Peacock show, McKinnon plays animal rights campaigner Carol Baskin.
Happier Than Ever, Eilish's second studio album, was released in late summer and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums list. She received many Grammy nominations for the album, including Record and Song of the Year, at the forthcoming Grammy's in 2022.

Nick Jonas hosted the penultimate program before SNL went on break for a month. A skit about a case of mistaken identification involving Prince Charming and Cinderella's glass slipper, a visit by Jonas' brother, Kevin Jonas, and an excellent sketch about ladies who enjoy Netflix murder dramas were among the highlights of Jonas' February 27 program. Jonas was also the musical guest on February 27, as if rushing around the SNL stage starring in many segments wasn't enough.
