Trainwreck ahoy:

Justin Bieber will be the next musician to do double duty as host as well as the featured performer on Saturday Night Live.

A spokesperson for NBC, which broadcasts the longrunning sketch show, confirmed on Wednesday that Bieber will indeed take the SNL spotlight on Feb. 9.

Earlier this week, the Stratford, Ont. singer posted a teasing Twitter update hinting at the gig. "Maybe I'm hosting and performing on SNL...maybe," he wrote on Monday.

The singer last appeared on the show in 2010, when he performed his song U Smile and serenaded SNL alum Tina Fey in a sketch.
Credit to him if we have a Justin Timberlake moment, but I have the feeling it's going to be a very polarizing show.

Way too much Bobby Moynihan tonight. He's in every sketch and contributes nothing (Unless you love wannabe gangster characters).

Jennifer Lawrence looks fine though.

Pretty bad show. The short film was awful. Fred is embarrassingly bad now. I did like the Dog Chef and Civil War sketches. Lawrence looked great but she was saying her lines too fast so her timing was all off
 
What was with the fuck ups tonight on prerecorded shit? The announcer said 8 when the screen said Hobbit 10 and then they had where the video would pause and they'd still have the live crowd just sitting there wondering what the fuck was going on.

You're crazy. Anthony Crispino and Drunk Uncle are pretty much the best characters on Weekend Update.

Also, Moynihan as the fat dwarf from the Hobbit... amazing.

Something I didn't know till today was that Bob Odenkirk did some freelance writing for the show during the historically awful 94-95 season. Along with Smigel, Andy Breckman(he wrote Japanese Gameshow sketch that season and would later on create the show Monk) and Jack Handey! Don't know if any of Bob's stuff made air but it would be interesting to find out. Handey also. This was in the infamous NY mag article in 95 that declared the show dead

Yep, and he apparently hated the experience. One reason why David Cross has said he would never host SNL.

That and he's likely never been asked.

He's also said that he's never found the show that funny to begin with.

Leave your insanity at the door.
While SNL can be pretty awful, Cross has a reputation for being a huge asshole.

Hey, Mr. Show could be pretty great.
Mr. Show is great and Kamala is just referencing how Cross has become this Mr. Show character.

Mr. Show - The Last Donut

This character is David Cross whenever he isn't on Mr. Show/Arrested Development/Other shows and is being interviewed or doing his stand-up or being David Cross.

Does anyone know why older episodes on Hulu + are butchered down to like 30-40 minutes? I was going to do the free trial to watch the 86-90 seasons, but none of them are complete

Is Netflix the same way?

Yep. Music rights are expensive as fuck. That's why they haven't released any of the seasons after the first five on DVD either. They'd have to sell an insane amount of copies to justify the costs.
