Also making their musical guest debut is fun. The group’s critically acclaimed new album spawned number one hits “We Are Young” and “Some Nights.”

Two-time Academy Award-nominee Jeremy Renner will make his hosting debut on November 17. Renner was last seen in the box office hit “The Bourne Legacy” and will next be seen in the feature film, “Hansel and Gretal: Witch Hunters.”
Multiple Grammy Award-winning group Maroon 5 returns as musical guest. Their new studio album, “Overexposed” features a series of chart-topping singles including: “Payphone,” which shot straight to number one on the charts, and “One More Night,” which has been number one on the Billboard Hot 100 for six straight weeks.
"Saturday Night Live" is produced in association with Broadway Video. The creator and executive producer is Lorne Michaels.

Don't get me wrong, I love Louis C.K., but I sometimes question whether he can play characters other than himself.
Either way, I'm eagerly looking forward to tomorrow nights SNL!!!

What's a girl to do? DVR SNL. I mean I worship Louis CK, but Herc on the Radio is the place to be on Saturday night. Join us.

That could be the *finest* compliment I've ever received in my life. Your words will go on my headstone.
Nov. 3, 2012, 2:46 p.m. CST
Did they pull that from some schmuck's deviatart account? Was an actual professional paid for that shit?

I just learned my buddy Ian Lloyd (sings the Louie theme song) will be doing an off camera performance on SNL tonight!

So I assume that means a "Louie" parody? Check out his band Social Hero. His son is the lead singer. Fucking amazing party band and one of my favorite bands to play with.
Nov. 3, 2012, 3:09 p.m. CST
He's still my favorite cast member. And the Under-Underground Records Festivals never get old. Looking forward to Louis CK tonight.

Not sure why they would forgo the iconic sunglasses-themed art, though.

Just sayin'. NBC can't even not fuck up press releases.
Nov. 3, 2012, 7:32 p.m. CST
Just trying to bring some more talkbackers into the Krew fold.
Nov. 3, 2012, 7:32 p.m. CST
But since its SNL I'll do what I always do now: wait for the good stuff on Hulu.

I know it was a poor skit, but I still laughed.
Nov. 3, 2012, 11:34 p.m. CST
No huge moments, but consistently funny. All the SNL haters can eat a dick.
Nov. 3, 2012, 11:36 p.m. CST
That was a pretty huge moment Max. Everyone is going to be talking about that one. It was amazing

I normally change the channel during the musical performances. Twas fine for Fun, but I think I'll be skipping Rihanna and definitely skipping Maroon 5.

The lord of the rings / Game of thrones skit was one of the worst I've seen. Louis CK looked like he knew it was shit
Maybe the hurricane shortened the week for the writers because I highly doubt this awful skit was rehearsed and aloud to make the cut. The audience was silent. The line where Louis says "I'm annoying the audience" (something like that) was 100% ad-libbed in the moment. It can't be understated how bad that was. Who wrote that? Ive seen some REALLY BAD skits in my days but this might just take the cake.
Nov. 4, 2012, 12:25 a.m. CST
Was that even a parody of LOTR/GoT or what the fuck? I had to rewind to show someone the train wreck
Nov. 4, 2012, 12:30 a.m. CST
Make out session was clichè for a moment but they kicked it up a notch to earn the first post monologue laugh from me
Nov. 4, 2012, 12:34 a.m. CST
Nov. 4, 2012, 12:36 a.m. CST
But hey, let's do another Fox News sketch! Wow, how relevant.
Nov. 4, 2012, 12:50 a.m. CST
Hey, don't skip Rihanna as the musical guest or you'll miss her choreography which typically includes her doing a variation of the hand jive on her crotcheal area.
Nov. 4, 2012, 1:27 a.m. CST
We get it, you're not a particularly progressive person, but enough of the Obama bashing. If you can't stand liberals don't watch programming with a liberal slant such as SNL. There's got to be some comedy shows out there for conservatives such as yourself. And if not you can always fall back on youtube footage of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour. Douche.
Nov. 4, 2012, 1:30 a.m. CST
And he rocks at it btw. Not only is his show brilliant, but in my mind he is the best stand up comedian still with us.

Musical guest were the only weak points. Australian film show was hilarious. "You can go crazy on my butt now." Lincoln was gold too.
Nov. 4, 2012, 9:30 a.m. CST
Check out this email he sent his fans just before doing SNL last night: http://insidetv.ew.com/2012/11/03/louis-c-k-emails-fans-before-his-first-snl-hosting-gig-im-a-pretty-lucky-guy/

The opening monologue was great. But this really wasn't his thing.
Nov. 4, 2012, 2:06 p.m. CST
Then open your fucking mouth and remove all doubt. Obama is comedy gold, yet high-minded "progressive" twits like yourself do everything to protect the guy. Oooh, first black president; however can we mock and make fun of him? Have a good time crying in your beer on election night, dickweed.

Nothing that stood out, but overall good, agree with above, definitely the best episode of the season. Though Bruno Mars had a solid episode too, otherwise this year has been a bit sub-par.
Nov. 5, 2012, 6:21 a.m. CST
I guess you missed Jay Pharoah's Obama falling asleep at the podium during the parody of the first debate. Lots of Obama skewering over the years at SNL, but people see what they want to see, I guess, especially the more fanatical among us. Those saying there were zero post-monologue laughs must've missed the Lincoln bit.

When the music kicks in and he comes up from the subway, hilarious ( to the handful of people who watch Louie). This season the best episode so far was Seth McFarlane followed my Bruno Mars. Louis CK was good but I have to say I was expecting better. Surprised he didn't do a shirt film like the one they did for Bruno Mars.
