BRIEF: Tina Fey to host 'SNL' season premiere

September 9, 2013


Sept. 09--Live from New York, it's ... Tina Fey!

The "Saturday Night Live" alum will host the season premiere of the NBC show on Sept. 28 -- her fourth time hosting, the network announced yesterday. Arcade Fire is set to rock out as the musical guest.

Meanwhile, following her oversexed performance at last month's Video Music Awards, the reigning queen of raunch, Miley Cyrus, is slated to host and be the musical guest on the Oct. 5 show.

On Oct. 12, Bruce Willis will host, while Katy Perry will perform.

This season of the long-running show will go on without a handful of familiar faces: castmates Jason Sudeikis, Bill Hader and Fred Armisen all made their exits after last season. Meanwhile, head writer Seth Meyers is scheduled to depart "SNL" in early 2014 when he takes over "Late Night" hosting duties from Jimmy Fallon. Fallon is moving into Jay Leno's "Tonight Show" role.
