“Saturday Night Live” season 39, episode 13: “Melissa McCarthy and Imagine Dragons” premieres tonight on NBC.
Melissa McCarthy hosts with musical guest Imagine Dragons on Saturday Night Live this weekend. This will be McCarthy’s third time hosting SNL. She also hosted in 2011 and 2013. Originally from Illinois, Melissa began her career doing standup comedy as well as improv with the renowned Groundlings troupe in Los Angeles.
NBC’s description of “Saturday Night Live” is as follows:
“A late-night comedy show featuring several short skits, parodies of television commercials, a live guest band and a pop-cultural guest host each week. Many of the SNL players have spun off successful independent comedy and/or movie careers from here. With live show surprises, especially those timed to the election – from Barack Obama’s surprise walk-on, Hillary Clinton’s performance opposite Amy Poehler, and Sen. John McCain’s “Weekend Update” appearance – “SNL” is making headlines and influencing the political dialogue while skewering it at the same time. Beyond politics, the show’s cast of recurring characters and take on pop culture targets remains spot-on. The addition of the show’s Emmy Award-winning SNL Digital Shorts continues to keep the show as current today as it was when it debuted.”
“Saturday Night Live” season 39, episode 13: “Melissa McCarthy and Imagine Dragons” airs Jan. 31 on NBC at 11:30 p.m. EST. Check out the preview of the upcoming episode below.
