MacGruber is returning to whence he came.
This mark’s Forte’s first time returning as a host since wrapping his seven-season run as a cast member in 2010. Forte recently parlayed his recurring SNL character of the MacGyver-like MacGruber into a streaming series that debuted on Peacock in December.
Serving as musical guest for Forte’s hosting debut will be the Italian rock band Måneskin — winner of the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest– in their first SNL appearance.
Saturday Night Live resumed Season 47 this weekend with first-time host Ariana DeBose (of West Side Story) and first-time musical guest Bleachers.
