NBC has announced that Awkwafina (“Crazy Rich Asians”) and late-night host Seth Meyers will host “SNL” on Oct. 6 and Oct. 13, respectively. Travis Scott and Paul Simon will be the musical guests.
“SNL” did win the Emmy for variety sketch series — one of eight awards overall — and remains a powerful ratings draw. But the show generated a mixed critical response last season, and recently drew some fire from an unexpected source: Original cast member Chevy Chase, who blasted its current quality in a Washington Post interview.
“Saturday Night Live” airs live coast-to-coast at 11:30p ET/8:30p PT on NBC
