NBC has released clips from this weekend’s Saturday Night Live season finale, which featured Avengers: Endgame star Paul Rudd returning as host for the fourth time. GRAMMY-nominated multiplatinum artist DJ Khaled made his SNL debut as musical guest.
The show opened with the “Don’t Stop Me Now” Cold Open, which showed President Trump (Alec Baldwin) and members of his administration sharing their summer plans. It was followed by Paul Rudd’s monologue, in which he reflects on his previous three times hosting SNL.
In addition to the Cold Open and monologue, the Saturday Night Live season finale also included the Weekend Update with Leslie Jones stopping by to comment on the Alabama abortion plan, the two performances by DJ Khaled, a lot of fun Paul Rudd skits, and segments like a (sorta) Game of Thrones tribute and more.
We’ve also included the “Retirement Party” skit that was cut for time. In it, guys from the IT department (Paul Rudd, Beck Bennett) have a musical surprise for their co-worker’s (Kenan Thompson) retirement party.
Saturday Night Live is produced in association with Broadway Video. The creator and executive producer is Lorne Michaels.
