NBC’s Saturday Night Live will explode in a Comcast symphony of cross-promotion for its final original episodes of the TV season. SNL alum Andy Samberg will make his hosting debut for the season finale May 17 — Samberg stars in/produces Universal TV’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine for Fox network (Universal and NBC both being divisions of Comcast). Charlize Theron, one of the stars of Universal-distributed Seth MacFarlane movie A Million Ways To Die In The West — will take her second swing as SNL host May 10. The network also made official that Andrew Garfield will make his SNL hosting debut May 3 as his The Amazing Spider-Man 2 premieres nationwide May 2 — Spider-Man being a big attraction at Universal theme parks.
Coldplay will make its fifth appearance as musical guest when Garfield hosts; the group’s latest album Ghost Stories will be released May 19. Black Keys makes its third musical guest appearance with Theron hosting; its next album Turn Blue is out May 13. And, on Samberg’s night, St. Vincent makes her musical guest debut. St. Vincent released her self-titled fourth album in February to her highest Billboard chart debut.
