Season 41 of “Saturday Night Live” isn’t kicking off until October, but thanks to a Tweet posted on Monday, fans of the show at least know who is set to host the first three episodes — Miley Cyrus, Amy Schumer and Tracy Morgan.
Cyrus will undoubtedly come in like a wrecking ball when she hosts the season premiere on October 3. She isn’t promoting a new album or movie, but she’s likely to remind the world that Hannah Montana is dead. The gig will follow her hosting duties for the upcoming MTV Video Music Awards on August 30. If history has taught us anything, people will probably still be talking about her antics come time for “SNL.”
Amy Schumer is set to host on October 10. Up for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her Comedy Central series, “Inside Amy Schumer,” she might be celebrating her victory come hosting time.
Perhaps the most talked about host is former cast member Tracy Morgan, who has pretty much remained out of the public eye since the car crash that left him critically injured in June 2014. Morgan was a cast member from 1996 to 2003. This will be his second time returning as host.
