The best Saturday Night Live host announcement in a while: Tracy Morgan will do the honors on Oct. 17. It will be Morgan's first big appearance since last year's horrific car accident that left him critically injured, notes Time. Morgan, of course, was an SNL cast member for seven seasons, notes Variety. Amy Schumer hosts the week before him and Miley Cyrus the week before that in the season premiere on Oct. 3. (In an emotional interview a few months ago with Matt Lauer, Morgan promised to make people laugh again.)
