TVLine Items: SNL Premiere Promo, Doctor Who Gets Debut Time and More

Adam Driver can show you the world… on repeat: In a new teaser for Saturday Night Live‘s Season 44 premiere, the former Girls star’s upcoming hosting stint is overshadowed by visions of the Aladdin sketch from his first time hosting back in 2016.

As the bit plays over and over, Driver wonders, “Is there some kind of clearance issue? Like each clip is prohibitively expensive? Or you guys just love Aladdin?”

Press PLAY above to find out who is responsible for the promo sabotage.

SNL returns this Saturday at 11:30/10:30c on NBC, with musical guest Kanye West.
