Louis C. K. Will Host ‘Saturday Night Live’


Fans of Emmy Award-winning comic Louis C.K. heard bummer news recently about his FX show Louie. Louis C.K. requested some additional time off between seasons. Season 4 of Louie won’t premiere until May 2014 (as opposed to summer 2013), but Louis C.K. writes, produces, and stars in his show; if he needs time to get away and come up with some brilliant, new material then he totally deserves that. And luckily for us, he’s not falling off the map at all. He’ll still be touring and we just got word that he’s hosting Saturday Night Live’s November 3rd episode. Sweetness! Deets inside.

The Hollywood Reporter:

Louis C.K. won’t be returning to FX until 2014, but fans of the comedian will get to see him on television much sooner.

C.K. will host Saturday Night Live Nov. 3, with musical guest Fun., NBC announced Saturday.

FX recently announced the comedian, who won an Emmy for writing on Louie this year, requested and received an extended hiatus between the third and fourth seasons of the show.

SNL airs Saturdays at 11:30 p.m. on NBC.

That’s awesome news! I’m also kind of excited about the delayed season because I have hella catching up to do, especially since Scandal and Revenge have been dominating my TV life. But I love Louie and I’m glad we’ll get to see a lil’ bit of him in a couple of weeks. Also, Fun performing? Uh, yes please.

Louie fans– how do you plan on passing the time between now and May 2014???!!!
