Saturday Night Live Dream Host List 2017

It was fun coming up with another bunch of suggestions for Lorne Michaels to hopefully take into consideration. Again, for the sake of simplification, I chose three hosts for every month that SNL tends to air.

New rule this time: There is no one on this list that has hosted before. For a few, it was very surprising, but here are my picks for crazy talented people and first time Saturday Night Live Hosts:

September

Rachel Bloom

 

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is amazing, and this girl even auditioned for SNL. Rachel can sing, dance, and write some funny truths, making her the perfect premiere host.

John Boyega

 

How has this sweet baby angel of a man not hosted yet? Is his glee not infectious? Is he not of the Star Wars clan? And British?! Do it.

Chelsea Peretti

 

Chelsea has worked with Andy Sandberg on Brooklyn Nine Nine for four years, and in doing so, built her character Gina into the Goddess of all. Gina is the MVP glue of the magic that is the Nine Nine.

October

Retta

 

Donna from Parks and Recreation is my everything. That Woman can get it. I saw Retta on a recent Late Night with Seth Meyers episode and it reminded me how damn hilarious she is.

John Slattery

 

This man is a hot mess. After seeing him in different states of ruffled, I wish to see him take on SNL. Badly.

John Mulaney

 

Oh, the bridesmaid that was never a bride. Mulaney was a writer on SNL for years until he moved on, never making it to featured player. This was a shame, and I would like to see it rectified.

November

Miranda Hart

 

The BBC series Miranda is the perfect showcase for her awkward brilliance, and she killed it as Melissa McCarthys backup in Spy.

Keanu Reeves

 

Can you believe he’s never hosted? After the John Wick movies, you know you want this.

Terry Crews

 

The talented papa bear that is Terry Crews hosting the Thanksgiving episode? Yes.

December

Clark Gregg

 

Clark is one of those improv and classically trained actors. So strange, and so good at delivering.

Tituss Burgess

 

If you do not see why he belongs here, out with you!

Rachel Dratch

 

Dratch Christmas? You’re welcome.

January

Michaela Coel

 

After Hulu’s The Aliens and Netflix’s Chewing Gum, I am so onboard with more Michaela.

Krysten Ritter

 

She is lit with some serious fire, and so knows how to aim it.

Liev Schreiber

 

Liev is the personification of naughty humor wearing a monocle.

February

John Cho

 

I could list Star Trek, but the main reason Cho earned his place on my list is Selfie. It was a show that died too young, and it made me fall so in love with him.

Christina Hendricks

 

Valentines Day episode? Bring in the badass redhead.

Rashida Jones

 

Need. This.

March

Donald Glover

 

I mean, right?

Allison Dunbar

 

Allison is very intimidating. She is a Groundlings trained improv that also Burlesque dances. The awesome of that baffles and amazes me.

Dev Patel

 

Again, I am curious as to how Dev would play with the SNL crew. I feel that they would gel together beautifully.

April

Andre Braugher

 

How has this man not won an Emmy for his Brooklyn Nine Nine role?!

Ruth Negga

 

I’m just plain obsessed with Ruth:)

Glen Powell

 

My sugar angel sunshine. Everybody Wants Some and Scream Queens are full of funny actors, but Glen stands out. So much, it’s almost creepy.

May

Katy Mixon

 

So perfect for the Mothers Day episode. Katy was boss in Mike and Molly, and she rules in American Housewife.

Vanessa Hudgens

 

Fresh off playing Gigi on broadway, this girl is taking her role in Powerless and having so much fun with it.

Larry Wilmore

 

Larry so deserves the finale spot after his Nightly show got cancelled. This man can write a skit like nobodys business and deliver the hell out of it.

Bonus Want:

Please just make Leslie Jones and Cecily Strong the co-hosts of Weekend Update already.

One thought on “Saturday Night Live Dream Host List 2017

  1. This is an amazing list! I can’t believe some of these people haven’t been on already like Rachel Bloom and Rashida Jones. Rachel Dratch not having hosted when Tina and Amy have returned quite a few times is crazy too.
