Saturday Night Live: 15 Dream Hosts!

In a starkly populist move, Saturday Night Live has begun soliciting host suggestions for upcoming episodes via Facebook and Twitter. And while we think that’s a nifty idea, we also think you’ll agree that TVLine readers might be a teensy more discerning than your average couch potatoes.

With that in mind, we’ve whipped up a gallery of unexpected picks for SNL hosting duties. Click on through, then hit the comments with the fruits of your own brainstorming sessions! Live from New York…it’s somebody other than Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin!

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Adam Lambert would nail it as the musical guest. How about Anderson Cooper
