SNL goes without a hearing

SNL goes without a hearing

The NBC variety show opened with Tom Hanks greeting a nearly empty studio as the show was left without a live audience due to the recent spike in Covid-19 cases.

Tonight everyone on ‘Saturday Night Live’ planned to put on our big Christmas show … but Covid came early this year,” Hanks said. Hanks continued, “For the sake of security, we don’t have an audience. And we sent our cast home, most of our crew, but I came here from California,” he said. And if you think I was going to fly 3,000 miles and not be on TV, well, you’ve got something else coming up.

Hanks, who wore a robe with the number “5” stamped on it to celebrate the induction of host Paul Rudd into “The Five Timers Club,” which is reserved for celebrities who have performed five times, then brought out Tina Fey. This is not the smallest audience I’ve performed for,” Fey said. “I’ve done improvisations at a Macy’s. Hanks and Fey brought Rudd out and welcomed him to “The Five Timers Club.

Thanks for coming,” Rudd said. “I’m extremely disappointed. Hanks then pointed out that not everything was so bad since Rudd was named” Sexist Man of the Year. I think he was ‘sexier,'” Rudd commented. Yeah, okay,” Hanks replied Kenan Thompson, the oldest member of the “SNL” cast, came out to honor Rudd for joining the club. Whoa, where is everyone Thompson asked looking at the empty studio, before congratulating Rudd.

Thompson explained that “SNL” would continue this weekend, but it would be a little different. There would be new sketches that were recorded earlier this week, as well as sketches from the past. It’s going to be a bit like a new Beatles documentary,” Rudd said. “A lot of old footage, but enough new material that you say, ‘Okay, yeah, I’ll watch it.’ Early Saturday, an NBC spokesperson said in a statement that.

Due to the recent increase in the Omicron variant and as a precaution, there will be no live audience for tonight’s recording of ‘Saturday Night Live. Shortly after the announcement of the show, scheduled musical guest Charli XCX tweeted that “due to limited equipment on tonight’s recording of ‘SNL’, my musical performance will no longer be able to continue.
“SNL” drawing its audience is just the latest live event in New York City.
