Wilson performed his opening monologue making fun of himself and how many schools he attended without receiving any degrees. 

He had previously said that he’s always been ‘too nervous’ to take it on the hosting gig and that the idea makes him ‘panic.’

‘I get really nervous with public speaking. I’ve never done any of those commencement addresses or Saturday Night Live just because I get too nervous.’

But Wilson had his two brothers, Luke and Andrew in the audience to cheer him on.

SNL parodied The View with a show titled The Talking with several female cast members acting as daytime talk show host preparing to welcome the Pope as their guest when a doctor, played by Wilson, joined them on the air. 

He then continued to announce the results of the women’s medical results including positive COVID and STD results. 

The writers were referencing the moment last month when The View pulled host Ana Navarro mid-show due to a positive COVID test just minutes before Vice President Kamala Harris was scheduled to appear on the show.

Wilson, who voices the Disney character Lightning McQueen from Cars, then appeared in a sketch showing him voice the character in another Cars movie. 

In this sketch, Wilson becomes increasingly uncomfortable as his lines continue to portray McQueen hitting on young girls and using offensive language. 

SNL made sure to joke about the billionaire space race between Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin, Elon Musk’s SpaceX, and Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic. 

A parody movie trailer titled Star Trek: Ego Quest saw Wilson star as Bezos orbiting in his Blue Origin spacecraft with his brother Mark, played by Wilson’s brother Luke. 

In the joke trailer, Bezos chats with Branson, gets an Amazon delivery, and is confronted by his nemesis, Musk.  

Kasey Musgraves performed a song from her recently released second album, Star-Crossed.
