Saturday Night Live Names First Two Hosts of 2010

at . Comments

Like all other shows on TV, Saturday Night Live is on hiatus.

It will return on January 9 with a new installment, one hosted by a celebrity that hasn't stood on its iconic stage since 1993.

Former NBA star and current TNT broadcaster Charles Barkley will host the program for a second time. It's an unusual choice, given Barkley's arrest for DUI this year and his relative anonymity to non-sports fans. He'll be joined by musical guess Alicia Keys.


A week later, Avatar star Sigourney Weaver will host the series. Her musical counterpart will be Best New Artist Grammy nominee The Ting Tings.

Which of these hosts are you more excited about?
