Jon Hamm and Ashton Kutcher heading back to 'SNL'

Jon Hamm and Ashton Kutcher are returning to Studio 8H to host Saturday Night Live in the coming weeks. Hamm, who hosted for the first time in 2008, returns Jan. 30 with musical guest Michael Buble, and Kutcher, who hosted in 2003, 2005, and 2008, comes back Feb. 6, with musical guest Them Crooked Vultures.

Hamm was fantastic on his episode, and Kutcher was totally passable on his. (The guy documents most of his life — he’s pretty natural on camera.) They both do well playing silly, dude-centric humor, which seems to be SNL‘s strong suit right now. Count me in.

Other than shave, what do you hope Hamm does for SNL, PopWatchers? And other than tweet the living crap out of it, what do we want Kutcher to do?

    I just had a thought that maybe Jon Hamm is growing his beard for his appearance on 30 Rock, maybe he goes crazy and lives in a cave after realizing that he is not perfect.

    • amj

      That’s hillarious and I would love to see it.

      • amj

        If not on 30 Rock maybe as a sketch about 30 Rock on SNL.

  • Trish

    Both are great choices. Guys that know how to laugh at themselves and not take themselves so seriously. I always thought Michael C. Hall would be a great host, I’m sure he has comedic talent. Hopefully when his health is better, SNL will ask him to host.

  • thin

    SNL’s seriously lackluster season has had very little to do with the hosts and everything to do with the writing. Hopefully these hosts are given some decent material to work with. And by “these hosts,” what I really mean is “John Hamm,” since I can’t stand Ashton Kutcher.

    • Sarah El

      Agreed 100%. I hope they up the writing for Jon Hamm; it’d suck to see such a legitimately funny guy ruined by bad writing.

      • Luke

        So true.

  • VarsityBasketweaving

    Hamm will be fantastic.

    Still hoping for Joel McHale or Zachary Levi to host after those shows wrap; NBC could use the good press, promotional value and genuinely talented comic timing.

    For that same reason, it’d never happen, but Conan O’Brien would be a must-watch.

    • VarsityBasketweaving

      Ugh, I meant “genuinely talented actors with comic timing.” But you knew that.

    • Hannah

      Both of these! Yes!

    • Laura

      They are amazing choices. Couldn’t agree more. McHale used to do Almost Live in Seattle so he would be perfect.

      • Luke

        Why he hasn’t hosted already is beyond me.

    • ash

      Ooooh Zachary Levi! He’d be brilliant! Oh please please please get him on there.

  • steph

    jon hamm is so sexy, he was great the first time he hosted and he’ll be even better this time. just throwing this out there, isn’t it about time John Krasinski hosted?

    • Ambient Lite

      Great idea, I like it!

      • steph

        right? it’s about time! he would be awesome. i’d take Rainn also.

      • Madd

        Rainn already hosted and he was pretty good.

      • KEVIN

        Jenna Fischer wld be great too!

    • Nancy

      Joel McHale? Conan?

  • Hannah

    Jon Hamm’s John Ham.

    • steph

      that was pure genius.
      mmm….that’s good ham.

    • treee

      i say this at least once a week.

  • Chloe

    Maybe they could get Conan to host, he has done it before…

    • S.O.

      I soooo wish Conan could host SNL. But I doubt the heads at NBC (Jeff Zucker) will tell Lorene Michaels not too. Or else he’ll move the start time of SNL to 12:05am to make room for more Leno.

  • Ambient Lite

    I feel like Ashton Kutcher is a waste of a guest spot, but surely he could do SOMETHING useful…maybe he could kill Gilly?

    • thin

      Better yet, they kill each other. In the final skit of the night.

      • Lois

        Great idea, thin! Except it should be in the first skit of the night.

  • rebecca

    I am so excited about Jon Hamm hosting!!! I loved when he hosted in 2008!
    I had never heard of him before until he hosted SNL and now I absolutely love him!!!

  • Tomm

    Get Michaela Watkins to host!

    • Caitlin

      I miss her. I’m still bitter that she’s no longer on the show.

  • Hannah


  • Arielle


  • elena

    Jon Hamm FTW of LIFE! Please please please, another Mad Men sketch? Actually, anything with Jon Hamm is made awesome, so it’s up to you, SNL writers, to try to find a way to make this guy suck.

  • TK

    Is Ashton Kutcher hosting just to make up for annoying the piss out of people with those god awful nikon commercials?

    • Lois

      By annoying us even more? lol

  • J

    Please don’t shave! That beard is the best. I wanna scratch it.

    • Ambient Lite

      I wanna sit in it and play a board game.

      • treee

        ahahahah! its like a shag carpet!

      • Laura

        Oh Ambient Life, thank you for that laugh. Julianne Moore’s Boston accent was hilarious.
