Lady Gaga Sets SNL Musical Return Alongside Host Tom Hanks

Lady Gaga‘s got a hundred million reasons to return to Saturday Night Live this month, but the good one is that, well, she’s got a new album to promote.

NBC announced Friday that Super Bowl-bound Gaga will return as musical guest — her third stint — on the Oct. 22, the day after her fifth studio album, Joanne, drops. Tom Hanks, meanwhile, will serve as host.

SNL’s October slate also includes Lin-Manuel Miranda (this Saturday) and Emily Blunt (Oct. 15). The show returned to record ratings last week with host Margot Robbie, delivering 11.8 million Live+3 viewers — the series’ biggest launch in two decades.

    I am surprised to see that they are doing a 4th new show in a row — don’t they usually take a week off after 3 new episodes? Do you think they’ll keep going with new shows through the election to tap into the pre-election viewership?

    SNL has been on a roll with their musical guests, first The Weeknd then Twenty One Pilots this week and now Bruno and Gaga. I can’t wait!
