Billie Eilish, Woody Harrelson kick off ‘Saturday Night Live’ season
Y’all like the weekend? Well, it’s about to get better.
“Saturday Night Live” returns for its 45th season on NBC this week. The season’s first episode brings back actor Woody Harrelson as guest host and sees mega music star Billie Eilish make her SNL debut.
Harrelson is no stranger to the show, having hosted three times before from 1989 to 2014.
Eilish’s first appearance comes as she tours to promote her new album “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?,” which peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. Her song “Bad Guy,” one of the album’s singles, dethroned “Old Town Road” by Lil Nas X featuring Billy Ray Cyrus on the Hot 100 chart after its 19-week run.
The following two SNL episodes have guests confirmed with Phoebe Waller-Bridge of “Fleabag” and musical guest Taylor Swift appearing on the Oct. 5 episode. The Oct. 12 episode has David Harbour of “Stranger Things” and musical guest Camila Cabello.
Also set to guest host this season are Kristen Stewart on Nov. 2 and Eddie Murphy on Dec. 21.
