Alec Baldwin and Melissa McCarthy Set to Host SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE

     August 3, 2011


The 37th season of the staple late night comedy sketch series Saturday Night Live is just around the corner, and two of the new season’s hosts have just been revealed. In an interview with Lorne Michaels for The New York Times, the producer revealed Alec Baldwin will return for a record 16th time as host of the season premiere, and breakout Bridesmaids star Melissa McCarthy has been lined up to host the second episode. In addition, no one has been axed while on hiatus this summer as the show’s entire cast is said to return this fall. Baldwin hosting is always a treat and I’m eager to see what McCarthy does in a sketch comedy setting. Here’s hoping the writers come through for both of them and deliver some quality sketches.
