Pete Davidson, Kate McKinnon and the Entire ‘Saturday Night Live’ Cast to Return for Season 46 Amid the Pandemic

Published

Getting the gang back together! Pete Davidson, Kate McKinnon and more Saturday Night Live favorites are set to return to the show when its 46th season premieres in October.

On Tuesday, September 15, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that the NBC sketch comedy series will not be adding any new cast members this fall. For the first time in more than 10 years, the entire existing cast — including Aidy Bryant, Colin Jost, Michael Che, Kenan Thompson, Cecily Strong and more — will return for the new season.

Earlier this month, NBC announced that its long-running late-night show will be filming live from Studio 8H in New York City’s Rockefeller Center when the season begins on October 3. At the time, the network didn’t specify whether they will host an in-studio audience. The news comes after the comedians put together a handful of episodes from home at the end of season 45 the coronavirus pandemic hit the U.S. The socially distant sketches poked fun at Zoom meetings, Tiger King mania and more, with memorable appearances by Tom Hanks, Brad Pitt, Miley Cyrus and Kristen Wiig.

Before the cast was officially confirmed, SNL fans wondered if big stars like McKinnon, 36, and Davidson, 26, had outgrown the show. McKinnon recently inked a deal with USA Network and NBC’s Peacock for a limited series centered on Tiger King‘s Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin after months of teasing the project. The King of Staten Island star, for his part, raised eyebrows with controversial remarks about the show that gave him his big break.

“They think I’m f–king dumb. Like, I’m literally painted out to be like this big dumb idiot. Like, even all my sketches are just me being like, ‘OK, sure,’” Davidson said during an interview with Charlemagne tha God in February. “I think everybody outgrows it and I think for what I could do on the show — which is just barely anything and it’s just ‘Weekend Update’ and I feel like I’ve done, like, 30 of those and I just feel like, yeah, I’ve done as much as I can over there but happy to be there as long as Meredith Nardino Lorne [Michaels] likes me.”

Days later, the Big Time Adolescence alum ditched the weekly cast party after John Mulaney hosted his third SNL episode.

“A lot of the cast members who were there noted that Pete’s absence at the party was due, in fact, to his comments last week and the tension with him and other cast members,” a source told Us Weekly exclusively at the time.

Despite slamming the show and hinting that his time as a cast member was coming to an end, Davidson revealed in June that he was still grateful for the major TV opportunity.

“I will be there as long as they allow me to be,” he told Entertainment Tonight. “I think I’m very lucky to be on that show and I’m really lucky to have Lorne Michaels as, you know, not only a mentor and a boss, but a friend. I’ll be there as long as they allow it.”

Southern Charm: Season Seven Premiere Teased by Bravo

Published

By

Last season, ABC’s 20/20 news program dropped slightly in the ratings but the series had much smaller declines than most other shows on television. After so many years, it’s hard to imagine that 20/20 will be cancelled anytime soon but, the network could certainly change things up to try to attract more viewers. Will the series be renewed “as is” for season 44? Stay tuned.

A primetime news magazine series, the 20/20 TV show is anchored by journalists David Muir and Amy Robach. Correspondents include Juju Chang, John Quiñones, Deborah Roberts, Brian Ross, Diane Sawyer, and Jay Schadler. Created by Roone Arledge in June 1978, the program combines investigative news reports with human interest stories and other features. The venerable series’ name is derived from the 20/20 measurement of visual acuity.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.

9/26 update: You can see the latest night’s ratings in context.

Note: If you’re not seeing the updated chart, please try reloading the page or view it here.

For comparisons: Season 42 of 20/20 on ABC averaged a 0.55 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.34 million viewers.

Note: These are the final national numbers (unless noted with an “*”). These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

 

What do you think? Do you like the 20/20 TV series on ABC? Should it be cancelled or renewed for a 44th season?

The sequel is now coming out on July 2, 2021 instead of its previous date at the end of 2020 due to continued theatrical date shifts.
