Is 'SNL' on Tonight? Watch Adam Sandler Host 'Saturday Night Live'

It's been 24 years since Adam Sandler parted ways with Saturday Night Live. Although the star actor has occasionally appeared on the sketch comedy show that launched his career over the years, he's never actually hosted. That will change when he takes the reins for the first time on Saturday.

Sandler joined the SNL staff back in 1990 as a writer and became one of the NBC show's featured players the following year. While he only remained on the show for five years—he left in 1995 due to poor ratings—he delivered a plethora of hilarious and memorable characters throughout his tenure, like "Opera Man," "The Herlihy Boy" and "Canteen Boy." However, skits like "Lunch Lady," "Schmitts Gay," "Gap Girls" and "Bobby Watches Grandma" alongside pals and fellow comedians David Spade and the late Chris Farley may have been his most famous sketches.

It's unclear what old acts (if any) Sandler might pull out the bag on Saturday, but the 52-year-old hinted at having something special up his sleeve and it might even include the appearance of some of his former castmates. "I love Lorne [Michaels, SNL producer] and I wanted to see him and do it with him and be on the show and bring back some guys, but I gotta tell you, it's knocked me out," Sandler told The Hollywood Reporter in an interview released on Thursday.

"I'm so knocked out right now," he continued.

Whatever Sandler has planned, it's undoubtedly going to be well worth the wait.
