2/18/12: Maya Rudolph/Sleigh Bells: When predicting SNL hosts, one maxim I go by is that stars of TV shows usually don’t host during the first season of their shows.  With Maya now and Zooey Deschanel before her, there will be two stars from hit shows in their 1st seasons two weeks in a row.  Anwyay, this will hardly be a triumphant return for Maya, as she left the cast only four years ago and has had guest appearances on eight shows between then and now, most recently two months ago in the Steve Buscemi/Black Keys episode.  Since Fred Armisen is still in the cast, I’d like to see Nuni and Nuni Schoener.
Thank you for booking Sleigh Bells, SNL.  You pushed me over the edge into realizing that I need to start listening to them.  Following Lana Del Rey, Bon Iver, and Karmin, Sleigh Bells will make it four musical guests in a row that old people have never heard of.
