    • 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.

    • 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.

      • I might watch, but only because I want to see her implode in some fearsom way.

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

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

    • She’s already hosted once before…

      • Like she said, Miley doesn’t deserve to host……

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

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

  • 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!

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

    Comment by Mike R. – September 9, 2013 08:57 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Honestly, doesn’t she have enough money by now to just retire and leave us in peace?

      • There’s no such thing as “enough money” or “enough attention” in show business.

  • 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.

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

  • Bring Jimmy Fallon back as a host.

  • 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?

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

    Comment by Amanda – September 9, 2013 09:38 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Nope. She was hilarious last time she hosted.

      Comment by James – September 9, 2013 10:24 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • She was also a very different person back then, now she is crude and really just annoying.

        Comment by Mike R. – September 9, 2013 11:03 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • Exactly. I thought her last episode was great, but her now? No thank you.

  • Fillion. Nathan Fillion.

    Comment by DonInFremont – September 9, 2013 09:43 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Agreed. He could ad lib most of it and be funnier than what would be in the script.

      Comment by Maria – September 9, 2013 10:02 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • This. This SO much!

        Comment by J – September 9, 2013 12:02 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • I agree too. Nathan Fillion would be awesome at it. But Maria, if he tried to ad-lib DURING the sketches; they’ll never invite him back. It’s an unspoken rule at SNL. Read the cue cards.

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

    Comment by Paul (@mondosalvo) – September 9, 2013 09:59 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • 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.

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

  • DEREK JETER SAID HE WOULD HOST IF JIMMY FALLON CAME BACK WITH HIM

  • Kristen Bell would be an awesome host.

    Comment by Kathryn – September 9, 2013 10:43 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • OH MY GOD YES! Let’s promote the Veronica Mars movie with the queen of comedic timing as host next year. :)

    • THIS! THIS! THIS!

  • 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.

    Comment by abahr08 – September 9, 2013 11:04 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • thanks for letting me the know the miley cyrus date so I can be sure to NOT watch SNL that night.

    Comment by Joy – September 9, 2013 11:41 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • 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.

  • 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!

    Comment by DavidSask – September 9, 2013 12:28 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • 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….

  • Billy Ray Cyrus! Lol

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

  • 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.

    • Finally…somebody besides me who gets this. Thank you.

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

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

  • Watch it not be funny because of their writers again.

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

  • 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.

  • 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
