SNL -- Season 41 -- Talk & Chatter -- Season Premiere: 10/03/15

It's that time of the season... let's start seeing how this season (the 41st) will be sizing up.

There are already three hosts lined up (via FB):

10/03/15 -- H: Miley Cyrus -- MG: Miley Cyrus
10/10/15 -- H: Amy Schumer -- MG: The Weekend
10/17/15 -- H: Tracy Morgan -- MG: Demi Lovato

... any other news?

Wow, that's a big premiere with 3 hosts in 1 night.


Here's the correct info

"SNL" OPENS 41ST SEASON WITH MILEY CYRUS (OCT. 3), AMY SCHUMER (OCT. 10) AND TRACY MORGAN (OCT. 17)

Most Emmy-Nominated Show of All Time Returns to Studio 8H With Lineup of Star-Studded Guest Hosts

NEW YORK - Aug. 17, 2015 - The iconic NBC comedy franchise "Saturday Night Live" will celebrate the start of its 41st season on Oct. 3 with Miley Cyrus returning as host for a third time. The Grammy Award-nominated and chart-topping artist will host the MTV Video Music Awards on Aug. 30.

On Oct. 10, Amy Schumer will make her hosting debut. Schumer is coming off her summer box office hit, "Trainwreck," in which she both wrote and starred. She stars in the TV series, "Inside Amy Schumer," and her upcoming comedy special, "Amy Schumer: Live From the Apollo," premieres Oct. 17.

Tracy Morgan will return to Studio 8H on Oct. 17 for his second time as host. As a former cast member, Morgan earned acclaim for his seven seasons on "SNL" and was Emmy nominated for his role on the award-winning comedy series "30 Rock."

Musical guests will be announced at a later date.

"Saturday Night Live" is produced in association with Broadway Video. The creator and executive producer is Lorne Michaels.

It's odd how the press release just mentions Tracy Morgan's other work as if this was a normal gig, not (presumably) his first performance since an accident that nearly killed him.

Although maybe that was his call, and he wants to get back to normal and not make a big deal out of it.

Looks like I'll be skipping at least one episode this season. Can't stand Shumer. At all. She tries way too hard to be offensive and crass and it doesn't work.

but not as much as Miley.

Is this the 3rd hosting gig for her?

If you need a big female pop star why not Swift or Perry?

Schumer is very hit and miss. Some stuff is great, some is just crass and not funny.

The vitriol that Schumer gets never ceases to amaze me. I know comedy is subjective, but no male comic gets shit for being "offensive and crass."

As far as her humor not working, I'd say her hit TV show and summer movie would be evidence to the contrary.

I'll give shit to male comics who are offensive and crass without being funny, which is exactly what Schumer is but with a vagina. I'm sorry, but a woman who says "pussy" and "fuck" a bunch hoping to elicit laughs is far from the sort of wry acerbic humor I prefer.

Re:your last line... you clearly understood I meant it doesn't work for ME, right? I don't use whatever the masses consume as a barometer for quality.

yahoo is saying no one is being dropped and only Rudnitsky will be added so far but new writers may be hired. They won't apparently change the weekend update pair although they weren't very good IMO.

Thought Goodburger was saying goodbye due to wanting to be in Los Angeles? but apparently not.
I think Mooney's prerecorded skits were weird/strange and often not funny. There are more dead weight though they should consider dropping.

I think the WU pairing of Jost and Che got much better as the season went on and were actually a pretty good team by the Spring.

I hate it when the host is also the musical guest. Although maybe I say that because these days it's probably going to be somebody I don't like.
