Jimmy Fallon is returning to his comedic roots with his a Saturday Night Live hosting gig.
NBC's late night host will join musical guest Michael Buble on Dec. 17. The telecast will mark Buble's second musical appearance, and Fallon's first since he served a six-year stint as "Weekend Update" co-anchor and frequent impressionist on the network's long-running sketch comedy show.
"I've never forgotten where I came from. That's why I'm so incredibly honored to be hosting the Saturday Night Times program December 17th on HGTV," quips Fallon in a statement.
Fallon has been generating favorable buzz and growing ratings since he took over for Conan O'Brien as host of the net's weekday entry Late Night in March 2009. He garnered still more goodwill as host of the 2010 Emmy Awards, and his show is nominated for three Emmys, including its first in the best variety, music or comedy series category, at this year's kudofest.
The net previously announced 30 Rock's Alec Baldwin (with musical guest Radiohead) and Bridesmaid's Melissa McCarthy (with Lady Antebellum) will host on SNL's Sept. 24 and Oct. 1 editions, respectively.
