Mulaney is hosting the show a second time in 2020 itself. He was second-to-last host before the show’s live episodes were shut in their 45th season and converted into special at-home episodes for the remaining spring season. Season 46 premiered in September and Mulaney will feature for the show along with The Strokes. Latest album of the band, “The New Abnormal” topped on Billboard’s Rock Albums and Alternative Albums charts.
SNL and Halloween
SNL is well known for its Halloween sketches; however, this year is a rare occasion when the show will air on an actual holiday. Some significant hits include “Diner Lobster” and “Airport”. Hopefully we also get to see some musical number spoof of sour Halloween candy.
Previously SNL has witnessed hosts like Chris Rock, Bill Burr, Issa Rae, Adele and many more with musical artists including Megan Thee Stallion, Jack White, Justin Bieber, H.E.R. and the list just goes on.
