Saturday Night Live Season 41

Saturday Night Live Taps Tracy Morgan, Miley Cyrus and Amy Schumer as Hosts

Live from New York, it’s three huge hosts!

NBC has tapped Miley Cyrus (Oct. 3), Amy Schumer (Oct. 10) and Tracy Morgan (Oct. 17) to host the first three episodes of Saturday Night Live, which is returning for its 41st season.

This is Cyrus’ third time as host; she previously manned the ship in 2011 and 2013. Trainwreck star Schumer, meanwhile, is a first-timer. Cyrus will also take on musical-guest duties (her second stint in that role).

Morgan’s hosting gig will mark one of his first televised appearances since his involvement in a debilitating car crash in June 2014; the accident cost the life of Morgan’s longtime friend James McNair. Morgan, an SNL cast member from 1996 to 2003, tweeted the following about his return to the show:

UPDATE: Musical guests for Schumer and Morgan’s episodes will be The Weeknd and Demi Lovato, respectively.

    Wow, great lineup! Tracy’s return will surely be emotional. Queen Amy will slay (please let her contribute in the writer’s room!!). And Miley was actually very good during her last hosting gig, so I have high hopes.

  2. Steven says:

    I hope we see the return of Brian Fellows. Great choices for the first 3 episodes.

  3. A. D. says:

    Miley….ugh….so sick of her and the Kardashians….Can’t stand Schumer….Tracey Morgan will be awesome!

  4. Riana says:

    Two out of three are good. Wish they hadn’t gone for the unfunny hack.

  5. Mr. Tran K says:

    Can’t wait to see Tracy Morgan’s triumphant return to SNL come October 17th for the first time since the car crash back in June 2014. This will very emotional for him and the show.

    Who in the hell cares about Mylie Cyrus? This is just me speaking, but no way do I stay up late to watrch that loser. Good grief SNL.

  8. terriclark says:

    I’m happy with those 3. I also want to see Justin Timberlake, Anna Kendrick and Melissa McCarthy return.

  9. dude says:

    Why are we continuing to humour talentless trash like Miley Cyrus? She was HORRIBLE the last time she hosted. January Jones-level bad yet it seems like everyone is under the impression that she is someone worth the attention she so desperately begs for. She has nothing to promote, she can’t act to save her life, how much did she pay for this gig?

  10. Joey Padron says:

    great news of Tracy hosting the show. made my birthday!

  11. DarkDefender says:

    All should be great.. Now let’s hope they get Timberlake, Fallon, Amell and Gregg.

  12. zac says:

    Can SNL get Christina AGuilera? SHe was great impersonating other artists on The Voice.

    I don’t find that Amy Schumer funny at all. I think she is the newest nonsense clown on the block right now…lol.

    Yet more proof that SNL has been for quite a while and will remain irrelevant
