6) Meet The New Hosts. Same As The Old Hosts. (Positive/Negative)
While Robinson can affect many things, he still can’t affect who gets asked to host the show. In Tina Fey, the show has a perfect season premiere host. In Miley Cyrus, the show has a perfect storm of controversy designed to draw eyeballs. Look: it’s a business, and we understand that. But looking back over the last few seasons of stunt hosting, very few have actually paid off. For every Bruno Mars, there are a half-dozen Justin Biebers. The irony is rich: hosts like Cyrus will draw viewers who normally don’t watch “SNL,” and yet what these casual fans see is often the show at its very worst.
