Michael Phelps Will Kick Off Saturday Night Live’s New Season

Saturday Night Live announced their season premiere host: it’ll be Olympic supahstar Michael Phelps! Let’s hope that this fares better than his pre-/post-performance interviews, where things can get a little awkward. Come September 13th (11:30 pm, on NBC, people!), I’ll be wishing that he doesn’t suck out after riding high on his gold awesomeness. I hope there’s a surprise lurking and he turns out to be a comedic genius, because otherwise it’ll be kinda sad.

Who am I kidding? It’s not like people will worship him any less if he has an off day in the comedy world.
