    • 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!

      • He would do a better job than half of the regular cast of SNL. They start laughing for no reason.

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

  • 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!!
