New York, NY - September 20, 2010 - NBC's "Saturday Night Live" premieres with three consecutive shows starting on September 25 with Amy Poehler and musical guest Katy Perry.
Bryan Cranston will be making his SNL debut as host on October 2. Cranston recently received his third consecutive Emmy win as Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for the critically-acclaimed television show, "Breaking Bad," and was also previously nominated for a Golden Globe and three Emmys for his performance on the television series "Malcolm in the Middle."
Grammy award-winning artist, Kanye West, will release his fifth untitled album later this fall that will include the new single, "Runaway." West's past four albums have received critical acclaim with his singles consistently topping the Billboard Top 100 charts.
Jane Lynch, from the hit series "Glee," will host on October 9. Her portrayal of the hilariously acerbic cheerleading coach on the series garnered Lynch her first Emmy win for Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Comedy. She was also nominated for Outstanding Guest Actress In A Comedy Series this year for her work on "Two and a Half Men."
Bruno Mars will release his debut album "Doo-Wops & Hooligans" this fall. Mars co-wrote, produced and performed on B.O.B's #1 "Nothin' On You" followed by Travie McCoy's chart-climbing "Billionaire." He also co-wrote the international hits "Right Round" by Flo Rida and "F**k You" by Cee Lo Green.
"Saturday Night Live" is produced in association with Broadway Video. The creator and executive producer is Lorne Michaels.
