In a match made in heaven and my dreams, Jimmy Fallon will return to host Saturday Night Live for a second time on December 21, the last episode of 2014, which is excellent news because his track record of hosting SNL's holiday episode, based on that one time he hosted SNL's holiday episode, is excellent. And his musical guest will be Five-Timers Club member Justin Timberlake, in his fifth outing as the sketch show's temporary song-singer. But Timberlake will probably also appear in sketches because when you have Timberlake, you use Timberlake, you know? It's science.
But that's not all the good news! Paul Rudd and his eternal youth will don the hosting mantle for a third time on December 7, with One Direction as his musical guest. Here's an idea: Rudd as the sixth member of the band. You can have that one for free, SNL! (You should probably throw that one in the garbage.)
And in between, John Goodman will make his thirteenth (!) hosting appearance, when he takes over on December 14, with Kings of Leon as the musical entertainment.
