The promo clip has been released for Saturday Night Live’s season finale. It features the trio of host Anya Taylor-Joy, musical guest Lil Nas X and cast member Chriss Redd. In the teaser, Anya and Lil Nas agree that their show will be the best of the season.
Chris tried to initiate a group hug but he is not encouraged. However, it is not the first piece of promotion for the season finale. On Wednesday, even the show’s official Instagram feed also shared a post of The Queen’s Gambit actress studying her script hard.
It was a picture from the table read for the finale of this season. Two weeks ago, the actress had posted the traditional coloured flashcard image with the episode’s lineup. We know the actress is one of Hollywood’s current It Girls and the show may turn out to be the best of the season. However, it might be hard to top the rating that was generated last week while Elon Musk was the host.
The episode was hosted by Elon with musical guest Miley Cyrus. It drew a 4.7 household Live+ Same Day rating in the 44 metered local markets and a 2.7 adults 18-49 rating in the 25 markets with local people meters. That was up sharply from the most recent SNL original on April 10, with host Carey Mulligan and musical guest Kid Cudi, which averaged a 3.6 in overnight households and a 1.5 in adults 18-49.
The Elon episode had topped the metered-market household ratings for any other host this season. This is except for comedians Chris Rock and Dave Chapelle who are standup royalty. The 4.8 in households are tied for the third-highest telecast of the season; behind the Nov. 7 Chappelle-hosted episode with 5.7 ratings and the October 3rd season premiere hosted by Rock with 5.4 ratings.
Last night’s household’s result matched the overnight rating for the Oct. 24 show hosted by Adele.
