For the cold open, Dr. Anthony Fauci got his wish and it opened with Brad Pitt playing as him. Pitt as Dr. Fauci, who represented the White House Coronavirus Task Force, fact checked all of Trump's statements he has said to the American people about the coronavirus. Pitt then delivered a message to the real Dr. Fauci and all the first responders in America, thanking them for all their hard work.

Tom Hanks acted as the host for the first At Home episode on April 11, where he discussed his health and performed an opening monologue.

“Hey, it's good to be here, though it is also very weird to be here hosting Saturday Night Live from home,” Hanks said. “It is a strange time to try to be funny, but trying to be funny is SNL’s whole thing, so we thought, what the heck, let's give it a shot!” 

“But, why me as host?” he asked. “Well, for one, I have been the celebrity canary in the coal mine for the coronavirus and ever since being diagnosed I have been more like America's dad than ever before... since no one wants to be around me very long and I make people uncomfortable.”

Like Hanks, the rest of the cast taped their skits in their respective homes, as did the musical guest, Chris Martin.

The current SNL season was postponed at the beginning of March due to the global health crisis. The last episode that aired from the studio was on March 7, with Daniel Craig as the host and The Weeknd as the musical guest.
