'Saturday Night Live' Season 43 With Amy Schumer: Everything to Know Before Show Airs

Amy Schumer is back on Saturday Night Live this week, serving as the sketch comedy show’s host for the second time. Schumer first graced the SNL stage back in October 2015.

Schumer’s return hopefully that means that the I Feel Pretty star will reprise her role as the fun, friendly, Spice Girls-singing Delta flight attendant, Becca, who famously saved former SNL cast member Vanessa Bayer from falling out of an airplane, only to take a tumble out of the plane herself minutes later. Or she could bring the SNL sexy back with another rendition of her cheesy Porn Teacher, accompanied with all the Aidy Bryant interruptions just like viewers saw in the hilarious sketch three years ago.

No matter what spicy roles Schumer takes on when she appears on SNL on Saturday, they are likely to be unforgettable—just as she seemed to suggest in the upcoming episode’s latest trailer. “I am the very first woman to ever host SNL, or even be in the building,” she joked before later stating, “God, it’s good to be back.”

In addition to Schumer, country music star Kacey Musgraves is set to appear on the show.  The Golden Hour singer will perform on the SNL stage for the first time ever, joining the likes of country greats including Blake Shelton, Dixie Chicks, Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton, Keith Urban, Tim McGraw, Taylor Swift, Chris Stapleton, Maren Morris and Carrie Underwood.

SNL will kick off at its usual timeslot of 11:30 p.m. EDT on NBC.

Viewers who don’t have access to TV can stream the show on NBC’s website via any smart device, and those who don’t have cable can still catch the show on Hulu (if they have an account). As always, highlights will be posted on SNL’s YouTube shortly after the show airs on Saturday night for folks only interested in catching the best clips. And those who want to keep up with all the SNL banter can follow the hashtag #SNL on social media.
