Former "Saturday Night Live" head writer and Weekend Update anchor Seth Meyers is hosting SNL Season 44, Episode 3 this Saturday, October 13. Paul Simon is the musical guest.
In his first SNL promo, Seth tries to make a big deal out of his return ... even though he's literally just going to the studio next door.
"No one ever said that homecomings were easy. If something is too easy, it's hardly worth doing. So no matter how hard the road, or how long the journey, you're going to make it back to Studio 8H..."
Alex Moffat mutters to Kenan Thompson that Seth's own "Late Night" studio is just down the hall, right? Kenan tells Seth it's not weird to see him again because he just saw him in the bathroom yesterday.
Fans are hoping Seth gets to join Colin Jost and Michael Che at the Weekend Update desk, and maybe give us a new "Really?!" segment. It would be nice if Amy Poehler could show up for that too.
Since it's Seth, we can probably expect SNL to give him more than they gave last week's host Awkwafina. Maybe even in a political cold open, or would that be pushing it? Also, is Bill Hader free for Stefon to return with Seth? They are a package deal after the wedding, no?
Seth hosts "SNL" this Saturday, October 13 at 11:29 p.m. ET on NBC.
