Who is Hosting Saturday Night Live Tonight: September 9, 2017?

Kristen Stewart is hosting tonight’s encore episode of . But she isn’t the reason to tune in tonight at 11:30pm on NBC.

Tonight’s SNL repeat, originally recorded on February 4, 2017, contains a sketch that no one saw coming and was immediately deemed as an “instant classic” on social media. This is the Saturday Night Live that gave birth to as brand new White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer!

Melissa McCarthy took the stage in full male drag, dressed as the man who become known as Spicey and caught everyone napping. At first, it was a matter of just trying to figure out who in the SNL cast was playing Sean Spicer. Once the character roared, it became apparent that this was indeed Saturday Night Live hosting favorite, Melissa McCarthy. She did little to change her own natural, angry, comedic voice, but then she captured every nuance, large and small, of Sean Spicer, from his furious contempt for White House reporters to his nervous gum chewing habit. The sketch was referred to as “comedy perfection” and “flawless” and it actually made the new Trump Administration, which had just been sworn in two weeks earlier with its own cast of characters, a little easier to take, especially if you hadn’t voted for the Republican candidate.

Other than that, this Saturday Night Live episode was called “uneven” with sketches that disappointingly bombed and others that will definitely be worth a second viewing tonight. Although, Melissa McCarthy may have been the shocking and surprise star of this episode, Kristen Stewart left her mark on SNL and had people talking about her appearance. However, not in a way that she would have hoped for on Sunday morning. Kristen Stewart got overly excited with her monologue and with her love for hosting the iconic variety series and she enthusiastically let an F-Bomb fly while she was wrapping it up and getting ready to throw it to commercials. Cast members Aidy Bryant and Kate McKinnon were on stage with her at the time and they couldn’t hide their shock either. Tonight, you will be able to see it happen again, but don’t expect to hear it with NBC sound engineers already silencing the word.

Another reason Kristen Stewart’s monologue stood out over other moments of tonight’s show, was her story about having Donald Trump tweet her 11 different times back in 2012 to discuss her dating her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson. If you haven’t heard this bizarre story featuring the insane, celebrity-obsessed behavior of the future President of the United States, it’s worth watching to see Kristen Stewart explain it all.

Highlights in tonight’s repeat SNL include two digital shorts. Saturday Night Live revisited Vanessa Bayer as a typical housewife serving up “Totino’s Pizza Rolls”, this time, to her hungry Super Bowl watching gang and taking the excitement from the game and into the kitchen with an extra ingredient that host Kristen Stewart added. Another digital short on the show was cute and passable with Pete Davidson as a young man who falls in love in a coffee shop while waiting for the latte that he ordered.

As for the disappointments we mentioned, damn, put Weekend Update right up there. Anchormen Michael Che and Colin Jost were both confused and totally off their game in tonight’s rerun. Colin even tried to end Update way too soon, before they were done with all their bits. Michael Che started getting confused by saying the words to a punchline out of order and fumbled the ball in a big way during this Super Bowl weekend SNL. As for the WU mistakes, it’s not clear how many you will get to see. NBC had already cleaned up a lot of the mess before any of it even made it to the Saturday Night Live YouTube channel.

There were other bad sketches including a very lackluster, going-through-the-motions, cold open with Alec Baldwin back as newly inaugurated President Trump. Other sketches that didn’t quite make it included “Dry Fridays” about a college program for students who had alcohol violations, a Digital Short on immigration, and a normally funny round of “Celebrity Family Feud” that missed the mark with a Super Bowl edition. If you stay up late enough, there’s a Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory sketch worth giving a second look to, featuring a singing Pete Davidson.

In the promos for tonight’s repeat Saturday Night Live, Beck Bennett croons out a song for host Kristen Stewart and hopes she returns the favor, plus promos with Kristen and musical guest Alessia Cara who cast member Leslie Jones confuses for elves. The Santa kind and the cookie-making kind.

    Really disgusting. Not comedy at all. Sickening to watch. Actors – do you find this entertaining? It is not for us . I was sitting with my family in a family restaurant when this episode on and it just made me embarrassed. Why would a network approve of this on the air? 2 girls going at it with a pizza role? Really sick! No one deserves to see that in this world – unless you’re a pervert. That’s for porn channels. I will work with the majority of this country to shut you down! Used to like SNL years ago – no longer – you’re going down…….
