NBC has chosen to feature “SNL” on the heels of a resurgence in its ratings due largely in part from poking fun at the Trump administration. CBS “Late Show” host Steven Colbert hostd the 69th Emmy Awards.
Jost and Che are head writers on NBC’s long-running sketch comedy show and perform as the anchors of the weekly “Weekend News” segment. Though many SNL alumni have hosted the Emmys, Jost and Che are the first current SNL cast members to host since Eddie Murphy hosted in 1983.
