NBC likely expects its ratings to air in space, thanks to today’s announcement that entrepreneur Elon Musk will host the show on May 8.
At first, Musk appears to be a leftist choice for a series of skits. But the man behind Tesla and Space X has been quick-witted in his online dealings with fans, enemies, and more.
The only surprise was this girlfriend and recording artist Grimes, the mother of his his X Æ A-12, is not on board as a musical guest.
SNL has taken risks with former guest hosts including Donald Trump, Al Gore, Ralph Nader and Al Sharpton.
