Saturday Evening Reside at the moment introduced their full lineup for the upcoming January 27 episode, and let’s simply say that we’re shocked. Why? Properly, there are components of this information that makes us really feel as if we’re leaping straight right into a time machine.

Let’s go forward now and break this down slightly bit additional. NBC has confirmed that for the aforementioned date, Madame Internet star Dakota Johnson goes to be internet hosting the present. It has been nearly ten years since she was part of the late-night speak present, and we’re curious as to see how she’s going to do. (We’re additionally not that optimistic concerning the success of Madame Internet, so how does that affect the internet hosting gig? Does it?)

Maybe the larger shock right here is the inclusion of Justin Timberlake as a musical visitor. As soon as upon a time, the previous ‘NSYNC member was a staple of the present, to the purpose the place is part of the 5-Timers’ Membership only for internet hosting alone. He’s additionally turned up a number of instances in different capacities, however he actually hasn’t for the reason that fortieth anniversary of the present. Why come again now? Properly, it’s sophisticated in that musically, he could also be keen on considerably of a bigger comeback. Nonetheless, he’s additionally approaching at a time when the approval ranking in the direction of him is maybe decrease than ever within the wake of Britney Spears’ e book launch final 12 months. That’s one thing that’s price watching in relation to his performances.

Be aware that this weekend, there’s a new Saturday Evening Reside episode that includes Euphoria star Jacob Elordi as host and Renee Rapp as musical visitor. Our feeling is that there’s additionally going to be one other episode developing in early February, however the sketch present has not launched a variety of details about that. Usually SNL airs episodes in batches of three so for now, we’d be shocked if there was one for Tremendous Bowl Weekend.

Then once more, wouldn’t that be an ideal time for Peyton Manning to return again and for everybody to have some football-related enjoyable? We will see…
