For some reason, I feel like I'm the only person who still watches Saturday Night Live. But I really shouldn't be; if you haven't taken note as of late, it's gotten very good again. I was pretty certain that SNL was making a comeback in their most recent string of episodes, but their latest announcements for hosts has me downright giddy.
Adam Driver is going to host next week, Jan 16, followed up by none other than "Rowdy" Ronda Rousey on Jan 23. I simply can't wait. Although, I'm a tad bit worried that it might be difficult to carry the show on her own. She's clearly had some acting experience in films like Entourage, Furious 7, and The Expendables 3, but never has she done live sketch comedy.
With Selena Gomez as her musical guest, this should be a pretty epic "comeback" of sorts for the UFC starlet. And while it's unclear that the show tapped Rousey prior to or after her UFC 193 loss to Holly Holm, I think it may actually be even better for it to be a vehicle for Ronda to win us back.
I'm sure there will be a sketch about the kick below (if she's down to own it and make fun of herself that is)...
Obviously a good PR move for Rousey... let's hope she can handle the spotlight!
