  • Looking at some of these host selections, I can’t figure out who SNL’s target audience is. I am apparently not part of it.

      • You mean hosts such as Desi Arnaz, Milton Berle and Broderick Crawford, all of whom hosted in the early years? There have always been offbeat choices, but Jamie Foxx is not one of them. He is a sketch comedy vet and a very versatile performer. What more do you want?

  • please let him write some of his own material and in response to other posters he was on in living color so it does fit

  • Foxx is one more reason to not watch SNL.

  • I’m very much looking forward to Jamie Foxx hosting! I didn’t see his last SNL skit, but I enjoyed his past sketch comedy chops and think that he has the potential to still be one of those hosts who “goes for it” whether the material is decent or not. That is…if he’s not taking himself too seriously these days.
