  • Lmao, this is going to be a mess. He was awful on AHS… don’t see him being any better in comedy (especially the cringe-worthy scripts SNL does these days).

  • He’s so pretty to look at! Can’t wait to watch him for 90 mins on SNL.

  • Please oh please let Blake Shelton show up. And do a Voice parody where they play each other.

  • I like Adam, but I don’t think he has the acting/comedic chops to pull this off.. He may surprise us, but I doubt it.

  • I like Adam but he isn’t going to top Bruno Mars’ stint as host and musical guest. The “Sad Mouse” short and “Pandora” sketch are still fresh in my mind. Best of luck to Adam though.

  • He is such an attention whore and he criticizes Honey Boo Boo…he is Honey Boo Boo

    • How is he Honey Boo Boo? That makes no sense. He\ll still be making music by the time that little runt in 15, whereas she will likely be pregnant, in rehab or dead.

  • Okay, I will admit that “Iran So Far” is one of my favorite digital shorts, but I have low expectations. Adam Levine could follow either Justin Timberlake or Bruno Mars and I hope for him he has Justin Timberlake’s hosting success. You need to be naturally good at improve to do well on this show. Just being a little funny doesn’t cut it. The writers can’t carry you.

  • I don’t know about all you new Maroon 5 band wagoners who only enjoy the band because you have the hots for Adam, but I have loved the band since they first started releasing music in the early ’00s and I think he could be good on a show like SNL based on older interviews the band did on talk shows. He has a raunchy, childish humor but I don’t see what’s wrong with that and being on SNL. Give him a chance before you all go immediately judging him

  • And yet we have no Joel McHale, or someone like Jane Krakowski to promote the 30 Rock finale. Ugh.
