Seth MacFarlane / Frank Ocean will kick off SNL!

Seth MacFarlane and Frank Ocean

Since Seth MacFarlane‘s directorial debut Ted somehow managed to turn a movie about a foul-mouthed teddy bear into one of the biggest hits of the summer, while Frank Ocean released Channel Orange one of the most critically acclaimed R&B albums of all-time, it would only make sense that Saturday Night Live would recruit them to kick off the brand new season. And what do you know, that’s exactly what happened, weird how that works! Via HuffPo

Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane will host the season premiere of Saturday Night Live on September 15th with musical guest Frank Ocean. This will be both the comedian and singer’s first time hosting and performing on the show. NBC announced in a press release today that the legendary comedy show’s 38th season would kick off with MacFarlane and Ocean followed by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who will host for his second time on Sept. 22. Mumford & Sons will make their debut as musical guest on that episode.

I’m calling it right now: Seth starts off the show with a funny musical number, sketch about Ted, maybe a couple of jokes about how all of Seth’s shows follow more or less the same template, he’s affable, charming and funny throughout, Frank Ocean kills his two sets, and then the internet starts whining about how SNL stopped being funny now that Kristen Wiig is gone. Oh, sorry, SPOILER ALERT!
