Louis CK has been tapped to host the season finale of “Saturday Night Live.”
NBC confirms that the comedian, who will work as host for a third time, will oversee the season’s concluding episode on May 16. In what will be her fifth such appearance on the show, Rihanna will perform as the night’s musical guest.
Two episodes separate the present from the Louis CK-Rihanna edition of “SNL.” The first, which airs on May 2, will feature host Scarlett Johansson and musical guest Wiz Khalifa.
The following week’s installment will welcome Reese Witherspoon as host and Florence + The Machine as musical guest.
