Premiere is October 3rd. Miley Cyrus hosts for her third time.
10/10 - Amy Schumer hosts for the first time. (10/11 is the 40th anniversary, 789 episodes will have aired)
10/17 - Tracy Morgan hosts for the second time, and makes his first performance since his near-death in June 2014.

Kate McKinnon first played Hillary on 10/5/13, at the start of her third season. She's made four appearances so far, but there will soon be many more...

Seven cast members and two guest hosts have portrayed Hillary Clinton on SNL.

Who -- How Many Times -- When
Jan Hooks -- 7 -- 1992-1994
Janeane Garofalo -- 1 -- 1994
Ana Gasteyer -- 16 -- 1997-2002
Amy Poehler -- 17 -- 2003-2012
Drew Barrymore -- 1 -- 2004
Rachel Dratch -- 1 -- 2006 (with Amy, sci-fi clone thing)
Vanessa Bayer -- 4 -- 2010-2014
Miley Cyrus -- 1 -- 2013
Kate McKinnon -- 4 so far -- 2013-on

Three cast members have played Donald Trump.

Phil Hartman -- 5 -- 1988-1990
Darrell Hammond -- 18 -- 1999-2011
Jason Sudeikis -- 1 -- 2012

Word is that Lorne is auditioning Trumps now, but I am REALLY hoping Darrell re-assumes the role, just as he did Bill Clinton twice last year. Nobody else would be funnier. Several of the old bits (Seth Meyers off camera directing Trump in the taping of promos) are true classics. "Dominios, like the game"...

Would much rather it had been Darrell, but I do like Killam - I'm sure he'll be fine.

(Yes, Darrell continuing to be Bill is good, but when we've had Dana doing both Bush and Perot in the same cycle... And Tina being forced back for Sarah Palin even when she had her own show to star in and run...)

Loved Larry David as Bernie.

Glad Tracy seems to be doing well. Fun to see the 30 Rockers with him...

Yeah fun Larry David doing the 'Bernie'. He nailed it. Also great to see the 30 Rock cast together again.

So the Donald will be on soon. I guess we will need to hear him say how great he is a million times. The man totally disgusts me but it would be funny if he lets them make fun of him while he's hosting. I guess we will see.

Star Wars toy ad was great, and it was fun to see Will's W comment on the circus...

Odd that Hemsworth would get his second shot after having just hosted in March... Only 13 shows BETWEEN his episodes...

Lazy Sunday turns 10. http://variety.com/2015/tv/news/lazy-su ... 201657949/

I still haven't seen any of the Narnia movies, but every time I come across one of the books in a classroom, it's just ingrained... the Chronic-what?-cles of Narnia...

And... 15 years old now... http://www.avclub.com/article/i-wish-it ... -so-229872

S28 - 12/14/02 (Al Gore; dressed as Harry Potter, a toy soldier, a teddy bear, and Elmo)
S29 - 4/10/04 (Janet Jackson; for Easter; Kattan & Tracy have left the cast and are making cameos; Simon Cowell appears)
S30 - 12/18/04 (De Niro; Horatio all alone now, so Kermit, Fozzie, Gonzo, and Animal join him)

After Killam did three disappointing turns as Trump, they seem to have course-corrected and had Darrell do it tonight- hope that's from now on... Gave Ted Cruz to Killam instead...

Darrell's 20th time doing Trump, Amy's 18th time as Hillary, Kate's 9th time as Hillary, Tina's 9th time as Sarah Palin, Amy & Maya's 9th time doing Bronx Beat...
