    Any chance we could get Nathan Fillion to host?

      That would be awesome!…but I don’t think he could make it through an entire episode of snl. I think he would laugh his way through each skit. But it would be awesome!

  5. Peter Dinklage should host SNL but in my opinion maybe next season. Bring back Christopher Walken or Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

  6. dude says:

    this is awesome but too bad it will still be the same writers they wasted vaughn

    PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE let Carol Burnett and some talented old-timers host more and teach the younger audiences. I’m 24 years old, and a student of comedy! I loved Betty White, please consider. Thank you, regardless, you will always have my devotion. I love SNL!!
