Alec Baldwin and Melissa McCarthy to host SNL!

Alec Baldwin and Melissa McCarthy Sign On for SNL

Saturday Night Live's 37th season is already shaping up to be a riot!

The late-night comedy show is guaranteed at least a few laughs when new episodes hit the air this fall, thanks in large part to funny folks Alec Baldwin and Melissa McCarthy, who will take on hosting duties.

And one of these two jokesters is setting an SNL record…

Alec, of course! The Peacock has confirmed that the eldest Baldwin will be returning to 30 Rockefeller Plaza to host the season premiere on Sept. 24. And this stint on the show will officially earn him the title of hostest with the mostest—episodes, that is!

While Alec was previously tied with Twitter BFF Steve Martin for most times as guest host—each guy had the honor 15 times—his next appearance will give him the sole record.

The opposite goes for Melissa who will take the reins on the second episode of the season for her first time hosting. But if her scene-stealing turn in Bridesmaids proves anything, it's that the former Gilmore Girl won't have to rely on beginner's luck.

And if she gets nervous, she can always turn to pal and SNL veteran Kristen Wiig for a few pointers.

Now the only question is who the musical guests will be. Someone get Bieber on the phone, stat!

But will Wiig and Samberg be there this season? That will change how the episodes turn out, obviously.

Thanks to Anony for the scoop!
