NBC is gearing up for the holidays and they’re airing three, brand new episodes of Saturday Night Live (SNL) with Jason Momoa and Claire Foy making their hosting debut. Also joining in the three new episodes will be Anderson .Paak, Mumford & Sons, Matt Damon, Mark Ronson, and Miley Cyrus.
The British actress Claire Foy will make her hosting debut accompanied by Anderson .Paak as the musical guest who also makes his first debut on the show December 1, 2018.
Foy drew critical acclaim for her performance as Queen Elizabeth in the series The Crown that returns for its third season in 2019. She may currently be seen in The Girl In The Spider’s Web.
Anderson .Paak released his third album Oxnard in October to rave reviews.
Following the December 1, 2018, episode with Claire Foy and Anderson .Paak will be the Dec. 8, episode with Jason Momoa and Mumford & Sons.

Jason Momoa will make his first appearance hosting SNL and fans are going crazy with anticipation. One look on social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter and it’s easy to predict this episode is going to get good ratings.
Momoa stars in the upcoming DC/Warner Brothers movie Aquaman set for release on December 21, 2018.
Joining Momoa will be Mumford & Sons, who are making their third appearance on the late-night skit show. Mumford & Sons just released the album Delta that entered the Billboard charts at number one.
The episode airing on Dec. 15, 2018, also looks as if it will draw high ratings. Academy-award winning actor Matt Damon will host for the second time.
Damon has been very busy with his role as a producer and has multiple scripts in various stages of development. He portrayed Brett Kavanaugh on SNL earlier this year to praise from Liberals and criticism from many Conservatives.
Joining Matt Damon will be Miley Cyrus and Mark Ronson as musical guest. Miley and Mark have been trending in the media lately for their new song “Nothing Breaks Like A Heart.”
In less than 24 hours, the official video drew three million views and became the number two top trending video on YouTube. It’s expected to hit number one for the weekend.
As fans will want to hear Miley and Mark perform the song, it’s expected that SNL is going to close out 2018 on a high note.
