‘SNL’ Taps Louis C.K. For Second Hosting Gig on March 29
Last night’s ‘SNL‘ featuring ‘Girls‘ creator Lena Dunham only ticked so far up from last week’s abysmal show with Jim Parsons of ‘The Big Bang Theory,’ but the longrunning NBC sketch comedy series’ March 29 return will bring back a much more dependable host. Louis C.K. will return for his second hosting gig after 2012, but who will accompany the eternal sadsack ‘Louie‘ star?
We have no idea! C.K.’s return hosting gig was announced during Lena Dunham’s hosting gig, but without any corresponding musical guest just yet. ‘SNL’ will take a two-week break during March (they could probably used the extra time, given how the post-Seth Meyers episodes have fared), returning on March 29 for the comedian’s second installment, having hosted previously one rain-soaked weekend back in late 2012.
Louis C.K. doesn’t necessarily lend well to sketch comedy either, the most memorable bit from his previous episode recycling his FX ‘Louie’ series with ‘Lincoln,’ but the acting experience from films like ‘American Hustle‘ and ‘Blue Jasmine‘ can only serve him well. Moreover, it’ll be nice to have C.K. back on TV after the years-long wait for ‘Louie’ season 4, coming to FX this May.
Well, what do you think? Will ‘SNL’ have its act back together by the time Louis C.K. makes his second hosting turn on March 29? Tell us what you’d like to see the comedian bring to ‘SNL,’ after a highlight from last time!
