While many shows are opting to replay classic episodes during this time in quarantine, one mainstay surprised fans with a modern twist on the classic format.
Dubbed "Saturday Night Live At Home," the show followed the format of a normal episode interspersing sketches, the host monologue, and bringing on a musical guest.
Tom Hanks return to the forefront also served as a highlight of the evening as he and his wife Rita Wilson have been recovering from COVID-19. "Why me as host?" Wilson asked in his opening monologue.
"For one, I have been the celebrity canary in the coal mine for the coronavirus, and ever since being diagnosed, I have been more like ‘America’s Dad’ than ever before, since no one wants to be around me any more, and I make people uncomfortable,” he said.
Hanks also appeared with a nearly shaved head, but the actor quelled any worry fans may have that it is for a role and not a side effect of the coronavirus.
