Zooey Deschanel, Channing Tatum to Host SNL

NEW GIRL:  The new comedy starring Zooey Deschanel as an adorkable girl who moves in with three single guys, changing their lives in unexpected ways, premieres Tuesday, Sept. 20 (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX.  ©2011 Fox Broadcasting Co.  Cr:  Isabella Vosmikova/FOX

Newcomers and a New Girl are on the menu for Saturday Night Live this February. NBC announced today that Channing Tatum will host the show on February 4; this year's busiest actor (who'll soon be seen in Haywire, 21 Jump Street, Magic Mike, the G.I. Joe sequel, The Vow, and Ten Year) will be joined by musical guest Bon Iver. A week later, Zooey Deschanel will make her SNL-hosting debut alongside cartoony pop duo Karmin. Prepare yourself for the inevitability that Deschanel's sing-songy lilt will require yet another iteration of SNL mainstay skit "The Laurence Welk Show."
