NBC'S 'SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE' RETURNS NOVEMBER 7 WITH POP & COUNTRY SUPERSTAR TAYLOR SWIFT AS HOST AND MUSICAL GUEST

UPCOMING SHOWS: November 14 - January Jones/ Black Eyed Peas; November 21 - Joseph Gordon Levitt/ Dave Matthews Band

New York, NY - October 30, 2009 - "Saturday Night Live" returns in November with three straight shows, beginning November 7 with Pop & Country superstar Taylor Swift taking the stage at studio 8H as both host and musical guest.

In 2008, Swift sold more albums than any other recording artist in all genres of music and her singles top both the Pop and Country radio charts. Her sophomore release, "Fearless," was voted 2009's Album of the Year by the Academy of Country Music and has spent more weeks in the #1 position atop Billboard's Top 200 all-genre CD sales chart than any other album this decade. She's had gold and platinum albums in sixteen countries, and her career record sales now top 10 million albums worldwide.

Making her SNL debut, January Jones will host November 14. Jones currently stars in AMC's critically acclaimed Emmy, Golden Globe and SAG Award-winning series, "Mad Men." Her performance has earned her a 2009 Golden Globe nomination for "Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series - Drama." Jones is set to begin production on two back to back features first starring with Nicolas Cage in "Hungry Rabbit Jumps" and then with Liam Neeson in "Unknown White Male." Jones stars opposite Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Kenneth Branagh in the film "Pirate Radio," opening November 6.

Three-time Grammy award-winning recording artists, The Black Eyed Peas, will be making their second appearance on SNL. Their most recent album, "The E.N.D.," helped The Black Eyed Peas make music history, with the longest successive stay at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart with 26 consecutive weeks at #1. The single 'I Gotta Feeling' took the top slot for 14 weeks, while 'Boom Boom Pow' spent 12 weeks at #1. This is the longest consecutive stay for an artist in the Billboard chart's 51-year history.

Actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt hosts SNL for the first time November 21. He recently received rave reviews for his performance in the critically acclaimed film, "(500) Days of Summer," as well as for his directorial debut with the short film, "Sparks." Gordon-Levitt is currently working on Christopher Nolan's "Inception" opposite Leonardo DiCaprio and will next be seen starring opposite Lynn Collins in "Uncertainty" and opposite Natalie Portman and Rainn Wilson in "Hesher."

For the first time in almost a decade, the Dave Matthews Band will be taking the SNL stage. DMB recently completed a sold-out U.S. five-month tour. In the summer of 2009, the band released their first studio album in four years, "Big Whiskey and the Groogrux King," which debuted at # 1 on Billboard and went Platinum shortly thereafter - tying DMB as one of the only two musical groups to release five consecutive studio albums at #1.

"Saturday Night Live" is from SNL Studios in association with Broadway Video. The creator and executive producer is Lorne Michaels. Steve Higgins and Marci Klein are producers. Ken Aymong is supervising producer. Seth Meyers is head writer. Don Roy King directs.
