This Saturday night sees Melissa McCarthy take over SNL as host for the third time in her career. McCarthy was in New York this week to film promos for this upcoming week’s episode, which is being overshadowed by the Super Bowl taking place both in New York and in New Jersey.
We can likely expect the show to go heavy on Super Bowl jokes, given it’s the first time that New York has ever hosted the big game, and we may even see some cameos from the players if they feel like showing up ahead of the Super Bowl the next day.
Already the Super Bowl joke have started as McCarthy and Keenan Thompson joked in the first promo about how they can’t say there term Super Bowl since NBC isn’t hosting the game. This prompts the duo to rattle off network approved alternative titles.
You can catch Melissa McCarthy hosting Saturday Night Live with musical guest Imagine Dragons this Saturday at 11:30pm ET on NBC.
