Christina Applegate has not hosted Saturday Night Live since her Married with Children days in 1993, but producer Lorne Michaels still remembers her (especially since she stars in his NBC show Up All Night) and that is good enough to get her hosting again on October 13th. We are not quite sure what to expect, but the musical guest for the evening will be Passion Pit. This will be the first episode of the year hosted by a female.
Also in today’s announcement is that singer-songwriter Bruno Mars will be hosting and performing on the week after. Keep reading for more details.
