Louis C.K. SNL Promo Screengrab - H 2012

Good thing Louis C.K. doesn't have very far to commute to this weekend's big gig.

The Emmy-winning New Yorker is returning to TV -- his FX show, Louie, doesn't come back until 2014 -- to host Saturday Night Live in the Hurricane Sandy-soaked city, and his first promos offer a bit of cheer amid the floodwaters. Teaming with Bill Hader (who in the first spot, may or may not be dead), Louis -- clearly very rehearsed -- gives a histrionic display of Shakespearean quality.

Well, that's a lie.
