This week’s “Saturday Night Live” is hosted by TV and Film star Melissa McCarthy with musical guests Imagine Dragons. When McCarthy isn’t playing Molly on CBS’ “Mike & Molly” she’s headlining hit films like “The Heat”. McCarthy returns to host SNL during a very bust weekend for New York. The Super Bowl taking place in Giants Stadium means anything could happen during the broadcast. The city is swollen with celebrities and media for the game, so expect one or two surprise cameos.
McCarthy’s promo reel for this week focuses on how the Super Bowl isn’t being carried by NBC, and because of that SNL star Keenan Thompson helps her figure out new names for big game. She also gets a few punches in for good measure.
The show is apart of a huge weekend for TV viewing. Here’s a clip from a previous McCarthy appearance on SNL. In this sketch she’s apart of a Hidden Valley focus group.
With Imagine Dragons coming off a big time performance with Kendrick Lamar at the Grammy’s, the show doesn’t seem to have any holes in it this week.
