'SNL' returns for work-at-home version with host Tom Hanks

For the first time in its lengthy history, ‘Saturday Night Live’ held an all-quarantine version, with stars delivering taped material primarily from their homes.

Coronavirus survivor Tom Hanks was the guest host, with Chris Martin the musical guest and cameos from Larry David portraying Bernie Sanders and Alec Baldwin as President Donald Trump. It's the first time the show has been on the air since early March.

Zoom meetings and the sense of timelessness caused by the stay-at-home orders were themes hit more than once.

Baldwin's Trump jokingly warned voters that “all the absentee ballots are covered in coronavirus.”
