On Friday, late night host Jimmy Fallon teased an SNL-related announcement on Twitter. Monday, he revealed exactly what that entailed: Fallon is returning to Studio 8H for the first time since his departure from the show as host. Though it won't be for a few months; he's scheduled to guide the Christmas show on Dec. 17.
Fallon, who hosts Late Night and was MC at the Emmys to great acclaim last year, has appeared on SNL many times since he left for the greener pastures of movie stardom (and then late night host stardom), but this will be his firt chance to host. Said the former Update anchor in a statement, "I’ve never forgotten where I came from. That’s why I’m so incredibly honored to be hosting the Saturday Night Times program December 17th on HGTV.”
