Live from New York, it’s Lena Dunham!
The creator/star of HBO comedy Girls will be heading to Studio 8H on Mar. 8 to make her very first appearance as Saturday Night Live host, joined by musical guest The National.
SNL returns with new episodes this week, with The Big Bang Theory“s Jim Parsons hosting, joined by Beck on the musical stage. In addition, this week’s edition will give viewers their first look at new Weekend Update anchor Colin Jost, who’s been tapped to take over for departing Seth Meyers now that he’s started his new gig on Late Night.
Saturday Night Live airs Saturdays at 11:35 p.m. EST/PST on Global.
Thank you for the SNL love. Dream come true. Can’t wait to debut my character “girl who googled serial killers all night & has lots to say”;!
