Kristen Wiig is This Week's SNL at Home Surprise HostMay 10, 2020
Saturday Night Live’s new bi-weekly “SNL at Home” presentation started a mini-tradition in its first iteration, a month back, by having the show’s “host” be a surprise reveal at the top of the episode.
Granted, these stars do little more than introduce the silliness, and the surprise musical guest later on, but they’re still the de facto hosts. Tom Hanks was the first, followed by Brad Pitt, who appeared as Dr. Anthony Fauci.
This week’s host was former SNL cast member Kristen Wiig, who provided viewers with an elaborate “at home” opening credits sequence followed by a special message for mothers everywhere on this Mother’s Day weekend. Check it out…

Also, unlike previous “at home” hosts, Wiig appeared in a separate skit as a hyperactive YouTuber, named P. J. Charnt, giving out hair advice. The episode also featured fun cameo spots from Martin Short, Tina Fey, and Josh Gad.
This was meant to be my “We Are the World.” I could not have been more wrong. https://t.co/Z7bZSJpoiz
