Third time is the charm for Melissa McCarthy, hosting SNL on Super Bowl Weekend
Just a few hours before the big-game, Saturday Night Live will be hosted by comedian/actor Melissa McCarthy. NBC confirmed the popular host as the chosen star during the Super Bowl Weekend show of SNL on
February 1, 2014. This isn’t McCarthy’s first run as host of the popular sketch-show, she has taken on hosting duties twice in the past.
NBC would not confirm the musical guest for the weekend however, that will be announced as the promos go live later next week. The first two attempts at hosting the show didn’t exactly pull in any large numbers. McCarthy first appeared in October 2011 then returned to host last April. Though McCarthy’s choice in bits seemed to get great reviews, the show itself didn’t see any tremendous boost in viewership. MSN was the first to hear of the show’s booking of McCarthy.
The next new episode will feature Drake, he will be both the host and the musical guest. Also Confirmed for January 25th is Jonah Hill, he will be taking over the show with Bastille as his musical guest for the night.
