The past two times Melissa McCarthy has hosted Saturday Night Live have been amazing nuggets of joy, so imagine our delight at Variety's report that The Heat actress will helm the show again ahead of the Super Bowl on February 1. The musical guest hasn't been announced yet and, while we assume they'll book someone soon enough, we're fairly certain McCarthy could handle it on her own.
