Funny stop before/after?:
SNL RETURNS OCTOBER 6 WITH HOST DANIEL CRAIG AND MUSICAL GUEST MUSE
New York, NY - October 1, 2012 - SNL returns with three back to back shows, starting October 6 with host Daniel Craig and musical guest Muse.
Christina Applegate returns as host on October 13. Applegate currently stars in NBC's comedy "Up All Night" alongside Maya Rudolph and Will Arnett.

On October 20, multi-platinum singer/songwriter/producer Bruno Mars will pull double duty as host and musical guest. The Grammy Award-winning singer will release his second album, “Unorthodox Jukebox," on December 11 and the first single “Locked Out Of Heaven” on October 1.
"Saturday Night Live" is produced in association with Broadway Video. The creator and executive producer is Lorne Michaels.

Applegate is good though.
Oct. 6, 2012, 12:29 a.m. CST
Quoted for truth.
Oct. 6, 2012, 12:36 a.m. CST
Definitely after. Annuale was hilarious. But we may differ on that since the two things that were Herc's favorite were the two I got bored and skipped through.

I'm not sure how good he'll be as host, though.
Oct. 6, 2012, 1:47 a.m. CST
That was the best "Here's a character I played the hell out of when I was a Groundling, now repackaged in a TV version for your enjoyment" since the "Get off the shed!" guy from Will Ferrell.

My local pub is full of "Talented Singers" on karaoke night. It doesn't mean they should be earning millions of dollars and presenting comedy shows.
Oct. 6, 2012, 4:25 a.m. CST
with an appreciation for old school rock and R&B. It's good to see someone with actual TALENT get recognized in an industry where looks are often more important than ability. And if you had bothered to read the entirety of my one-sentence post, you would have realized that I, too, questioned why he should be hosting the show. So kindly fuck off, fuck off and fuck off.

Wtf are they thinking
Oct. 6, 2012, 4:57 a.m. CST
On oct 20

His new single LOCKED OUT OF HEAVEN is soooooo good. It's the best Police song released in 25 years.

So what? She's fucking funny.

Is that the skits will mainly have the cast in those. So maybe it's a good thing. I cannot wait for Craig's SNL. Awesome.
Oct. 6, 2012, 12:47 p.m. CST
Cecily Strong is a Second City girl. Ferrell was Groundlings.

by Mr. Anderson
Wonder if Mr. Burgundy will show up. That would guarantee at least a few million YouTube hits on Sunday... Stay classy SNL, and make it happen.
Oct. 6, 2012, 6:14 p.m. CST
Dude can sing, dance, act, and he seems to have a sense of humor in regard to himself. What else do you need?
Oct. 6, 2012, 6:15 p.m. CST
when her material is good.

2 Best moments of the season... the Puppet sketch and that singer playing video games during the guitar solo.
Oct. 6, 2012, 8:28 p.m. CST
by Steve Rogers
Mark my words, he's one of the best to come along on the show in a while. He's gonna be one of the next breakout stars.
Oct. 6, 2012, 10:39 p.m. CST
I'm shocked, this is turning out to be a really good season. Good skits and good host. I'm curious to see if anyone can top Seth Macfarlane this season.
Oct. 6, 2012, 11:17 p.m. CST
Never listened to Muse in my life, but what was that first song they played ? They sounded like they were remaking a U2 video .... it was whack how much of a ripoff that was.
Oct. 6, 2012, 11:20 p.m. CST
by Wolfman Nards
I don't like that song, but that sounded perfect. Too perfect? Was that lip synced?
Oct. 6, 2012, 11:53 p.m. CST
by seibei iguchi
I thought the same thing. This second song sucks too. I blame Kate Hudson for the demise of Muse.
Oct. 6, 2012, 11:59 p.m. CST
by Wolfman Nards
Oh no. Kate Hudson? That explains everything. Yeah, Muse is good when they bring the rock.
Oct. 7, 2012, 12:04 a.m. CST
Also, who is the Asian dude in the undecided voter sketch? He looks familiar.
Oct. 7, 2012, 2 a.m. CST
Lesser known Bond girls and space kitty stole the show tonight. I was really impressed with the accents all around though. Also Kate McKinnon is going to overtake Vanessa Bayer, mark my words!
Oct. 7, 2012, 8:09 a.m. CST
...Lorne anointed Bayer as the new Wiig, just as he anointed Wiig as the new Pohler, etc. He has his favorites going all the way back to Gilda.
Oct. 7, 2012, 9:05 a.m. CST
...over Bayer. McKinnon started mid-season right after it was announced Wiig was leaving. I think Bayer has been around long enough to see that she isnt going to become an SNL powerhouse.
Oct. 7, 2012, 1:34 p.m. CST
There's something slightly psychotic about Kate McKinnon, and I mean that in a good way. Bayer looks like she might get stuck playing the straight woman or overenthusiastic kid character.
Oct. 7, 2012, 9:25 p.m. CST
Can't sing, can't act, can't stand him.
Oct. 7, 2012, 9:49 p.m. CST
Why is she still on the show? Her funny quotient is nil. I don't think she's made me laugh once, and that voice is just ... It's like a cross between a harpie being burned at the stake and deranged female cat going through "the change" while trapped in a bag full of crayfish. Don Pardo should just announce her as "Abby Bysmal" every week.
Oct. 8, 2012, 2:23 a.m. CST
"Abby Smyl" would suffice. Though I think you forgot which cast member you were talking about there.
Oct. 8, 2012, 9:54 a.m. CST
More character potential, and a great actor to boot. Love to see more of him and McKinnon, whose hair commercial with Sophia Vergara last year was maybe the best skit of the season.
Oct. 8, 2012, 10:53 a.m. CST
One of the best live bands around today. Matt Bellamy ( the singer, also married to Kate Hudson ) is a fricken genius. Check him out on Youtube playing the shit out of guitar AND piano. Great band.
Oct. 8, 2012, 2:18 p.m. CST
..then the mill.. ..then the quarry.. ..then the rockpile.. ..then the dirthole.. ..then the Blockbuster's..
