Christina Applegate, Bruno Mars to host SNL

After a pair of pretty stellar episodes on Saturday Night Live — seriously, the puppet sketch from Seth MacFarlane‘s was amazing no matter how you cut it. — SNL has announced a couple of new hosts for the weeks ahead, including Christina Applegate and … Bruno Mars? Really? You mean, Bruno is just going to sing, right? He’s going to host too? Oh for- seriously?! GAH. From HuffPo

Christina Applegate and Bruno Mars are headed to Saturday Night Live, NBC announced on Monday. Applegate, who is promoting her sitcom Up All Night, will host on October 13 with musical guest Passion Pit. The Anchorman and Married with Children star has hosted the show once before, in 1993. Mars will both host and act as musical guest on the October 20 episode of the show. His sophomore album, Unorthodox Jukebox, will be released in December. He appeared as the show’s musical guest in 2010.

Just putting this out there, but does Bruno actually have any acting or comedy experience? Anything other than the ability to sing pretty and look vaguely like a Boston Terrier? (It’s the eyes.) Well, how good an episode of SNL is usually relies more on the quality of the writing over the quality of the host.
