Alec Baldwin Host, Radiohead Musical Guests for Saturday Night Live Season Opener

Radiohead will be the musical guests for the September 24 premiere of Saturday Night Live 's thirty-seventh season, alongside host Alec Baldwin, according to USA Today.  The English rock band, which in February released its eighth studio album, The King of Limbs , previously appeared on the show eleven years ago during its twenty-sixth season, appearing alongside host Kate Hudson. Being the major Radiohead fan that I am, I'm hoping to see an inclusion of the unreleased song "The Daily Mail," one of their most powerful tracks in years. (Also hoping for either "Lotus Flower" or "Separator" from The King of Limbs .) Read More... http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/tvovermind/tvnews/~3/5Obqir_Yy8U/86691

Alec Baldwin, Melissa McCarthy hosting 'Saturday Night Live,' somewhere Steve Martin clenches fists

There are few things we enjoy more than a sarcastic rivalry between celebrity friends. And Lorne Michaels' recent announcement that Alec Baldwin will host "Saturday Night Live" for a record-breaking 16th time during its Season 37 premiere should fuel the fire between Baldwin and 15-time host Steve Martin. As the New York Times was first to report, Baldwin -- who may or may not stay on "30 Rock" which may or may not go on past Season 6 -- will return to Studio 8H on Sept. 24. Expect Martin to leave part of that weekend open to crash his monologue or at least send a snide, pre-taped greeting. Another host locked in for "SNL" is "Mike & Molly" star Melissa McCarthy. Fresh off her breakout performance in "Bridesmaids," McCarthy's hosting gig will see her reunited with co-star Kristen Wiig. This will be McCarthy's first appearance on the series.... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/08/alec-baldwin-melissa-mccarthy-hosting-saturday-night-live-somewhere-steve-martin-clenches-fists.html
