Being a Saturday Night Live host/musical guest is still one of the most important gauntlets a celebrity can run through. Do well, and your sketches will be posted on TikTok alongside videos of people making videos of slime for eternity. Do poorly, and you’re Ashlee Simpson, also posted on TikTok for eternity. Next on the docket is veteran Emma Stone, who will be hosting alongside Noah Kahan as musical guest. Stone is part of the SNL family (through marriage) and a real fan of the show, but will anything she does be able to top “The Actress” or “Wells for Boys” without Julio Torres in the writers’ room? The following week has Adam Driver with Olivia Rodrigo, then closing out the year is Kate McKinnon with Billie Eilish. Both McKinnon and Eilish did work on the Barbie movie, with McKinnon playing Weird Barbie and Eilish penning “What Was I Made For?” Did we really think the Barbie well had run dry after “I’m Just Pete”? Moving into the new year, we request Trisha Paytas pull double duty at Lorne Michaels’s earliest convenience. Below, the SNL season 49 lineup.

October 14: Pete Davidson and Ice Spice
October 21: Bad Bunny
October 28: Nate Bargatze and Foo Fighters
November 11: Timothée Chalamet and Boygenius
November 18: Jason Momoa and Tate McRae
December 2: Emma Stone and Noah Kahan
