    happy Tina Fey will host the season premiere episode.

  2. Xime says:

    I hate her tongue so much!

    • Kim R says:

      So much!!! Can we just make it a rule that if any media outlet has to use an image of Miley, they ban the ones with the “tongue face”? Is that too much to ask?? Hate it SOOO much.

    • Carrie says:

      Enough of her and her stupid tongue. It’s disgusting. I hope someday she’ll grow up and realize how idiotic she looks. I definitely won’t be watching that particular show.

  3. Andy says:

    I’ll definitely watch Tina Fey and Bruce Willis. Obviously the same can’t be said for Miley.

  4. Chablis says:

    Miley doesn’t deserve the cache of hosting SNL. Won’t watch when she is on. Love Tina and Bruce should be good.

  5. Lily says:

    Oh. my. god !!!!!!!!!!!! Tina Fey hosting the premiere, talk about perfection ^^

  6. Jason says:

    Note to self: Do not turn on TV Oct. 5th. If we don’t encourage the nutjobs, they’ll go away.

  7. Babybop says:

    Happy about Tina Fey… but that picture of Miley makes me nauseous. I’m sick of her. Probably won’t watch her episode.

  8. Danielle says:

    Excited for this lineup, actually! I hope they let Katy do a sketch or two, since she did a pretty good job hosting when she did in 2011. I hope maybe they can get Sandra Bullock to host one, and honestly with Blake Shelton being such a hit on The Voice, I think he’d do a heck of a job as host. Or Brad Paisley. Either way… add some country flair!

  9. Mike R. says:

    Really, Miley, haven’t we given her enough attention already. I’m so sick of her.

  10. John says:

    Scraping the bottom of the barrel there with Miley Cyrus as host, SNL! Every time I see her tongue I wish someone would be kind enough to rip it out of her mouth.

  11. Nate says:

    Oh god get the hell over it

  12. tara17 says:

    Miley did a fantastic hosting job last time around. Looking forward to the premiere with Tina Fey!

  13. Ezzy says:

    Bring Jimmy Fallon back as a host.

  14. EJ says:

    I wish they’d FINALLY get Meryl Streep to host for the first time. Maybe in December when she’s done shooting Into The Woods and will be promoting August: Osage County?

  15. Amanda says:

    Can we just all agree to skip Miley’s episode?

  16. DonInFremont says:

    Fillion. Nathan Fillion.

  17. Host and musical guest announcements are well and good, but I want to know about new players! Quit stalling, Lorne!

    • JLK says:

      Maybe the reason they haven’t announced the new players is because the 5 folks Deadline reported as the front runners are all actually joining the cast. It was reported everywhere, and a few sources didn’t report it as rumored the way Deadline did. They might feel like it’s already out there and doesn’t need an announcement.

  18. Emma Hepburn says:

    Tina Fey and Bruce Willis in SNL is so perfect. Miley Cyrus… I don’t care.

  19. TDPC says:


  20. Kathryn says:

    Kristen Bell would be an awesome host.

  21. abahr08 says:

    Miley has no talent but I would love to see what the writers have to write about her so I’d probably watch to see what crazy stuff happens.

  22. Joy says:

    thanks for letting me the know the miley cyrus date so I can be sure to NOT watch SNL that night.

  23. Hope The Miley Cyrus Show sketch may show up on October 5th with Vanessa Bayer impersonating Miley. Wonder if Ellen DeGeneres should host SNL this coming season.

  24. DavidSask says:

    Katy is funny why would they not have her host instead of ageing tired Bruce, or at very least share co-host, ya Bruce would allow that lol!

  25. DonInFremont says:

    I’d also suggest, for an early November show, Chris Hemsworth…..looks like Thor 2 is going to exceed the first one, and this would inspire wacky cameos from RDJ, and the like….hell, he and Natalie could do a sequel to her Jamba Juice sketch……and Chris seems like a pretty nimble actor, he could handle it….

  26. some guy says:

    Billy Ray Cyrus! Lol

  27. S. from E. now says:

    Arcade Fire *______* Finally I won’t have to leave the room when the music guest is on. x)

  28. rachel says:

    People keep saying all these negative things about Miley Cyrus because of the VMA performance, but i don’t get it. Who cares? Her CD sales flew way up after her performance, it was just an attention thing to get money really.

  29. Herbert says:

    No way will I be watching Miley C

  30. Bob says:

    Spreading lies and Propaganda for Many years. Will never watch the State Sponsored show again. Turn off your TV’s you F#cking sheeple!!

    • Jerri says:

      Really? Hey Bob, get off the Internet, everyone around you is spreading lies and Propaganda on here. It’s a jungle out there. #TrustNoOne

  31. Drake says:

    Watch it not be funny because of their writers again.

  32. sundaymarie says:

    Excited for Tina Fey. Will have to skip the Lady Gaga episode if she ends up hosting.

  33. AnnieM says:

    Hope to see Justin Timberlake host yet again….he always makes me laugh. And I’m sure this would never happen, but I wish they could get Eddie Murphy to host.

  34. Sue says:

    Bryan Cranston would have been better for premier, since BB is ending the next night. I like Tina Fey, but getting old having her all the time – need some new people to host
