Saturday Night Live season 44 episode 11 live stream: Watch online


James McAvoy is taking the stage as Saturday Night Live’s host this week. He’ll be joined by rapper Meek Mill, the night’s musical guest.

This weekend, James McAvoy is hosting Saturday Night Live, and right off the bat, I already want a Professor X sketch. The Scottish actor will be hosting for the first time this Saturday night, just off promoting his latest film, Glass, starring Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Willis and Sarah Paulson.

As someone who saw the latter three, including director M. Night Shyamalan, during a live taping of Conan during Comic-Con, I’d love to see either of them have a cameo during the night. Of course, trying to get either of them is a pretty hefty quest, but we know Lorne Michaels always has some tricks up his sleeves.

If not, McAvoy might enjoy being in the spotlight without his co-stars overshadowing him, and we think he deserves to have his 90 minutes of fame. Make no mistake, McAvoy has starred in many big budget movies over the year (including the precursor to Glass, 2016’s Split). But everyone could benefit from some extra publicity… Oh, and that reminds us, we definitely need a Glass parody. I would pay good money to see Kenan Thompson play Elijah Price, Beck Bennett play David Dunn and Kate McKinnon play Dr. Staple.

In the promos this week, we got to see a bit of McAvoy’s funny side. In the clip below, we see McAvoy make his way around the studio, try out some outfits and get quite comfy.

Once again without fail, we know SNL will have plenty to cover in either its cold open or Weekend Update. Thankfully, the government was (temporarily) reopened on Friday by Donald Trump, who still babbled on about why his wall is the best and only way for border defense.

And let’s not forget the weirdest thing we learned this week: Roger Stone has a Richard Nixon back tattoo. Oh, and he was arrested Friday morning, being swarmed by the FBI. Yeah, SNL has a lot of political goodies to cover this weekend.

Hopefully, SNL has planned accordingly and will take our recommendations to heart. To see which parodies they do and political events they cover, here’s how you can watch online:
