With the political climate in its prime and its influence on the 2008 Presidential race, Saturday Night Live is highly anticipated at least through November; and with the absence of Kristen Wiig and a not-so-sure Jason Sudeikis, the ratings lie with the hosts, musical guests, and of course the best impersonator of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.
While we need Sudeikis to stick around for some good Romney and Biden skits, SNL is sure to have high ratings on its opening night with host Seth MacFarlane and musical guest Frank Ocean. The creator of Family Guy and one of the biggest musical prodigies in this era will pull in viewers who want a laugh, and who also appreciate deep, powerful lyrics with many subliminal messages that are super relatable.
The season premiere of Saturday Night Live is September 15 on NBC, a week the Democratic National Convention – it should be a very interesting 90 minutes!
In addition to the season premiere, SNL has also released a list of hosts for the first three episodes, including Seth MacFarlane:
September 15 – Seth MacFarlane (Musical Guest Frank Ocean)
September 22 – Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Musical Guest Mumphord and Sons)
October 6 – Daniel Craig (Musical Guest Muse)
