"SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE" IS ALL OVER THE MONTH OF NOVEMBER

November Shows To Feature Newly-Minted TV Star Jason Lee and White Hot "Desperate Housewife" Eva Longoria with Music from Foo Fighters and Korn

Documentary "Saturday Night Live in the '80s: Lost and Found" premieres Sunday, November 13.

NEW YORK -- November 7, 2005 -- "Saturday Night Live" stakes out some space in November with two hot hosts and an anticipated documentary on the show's evolution. Jason Lee and Foo Fighters topline the November 12 episode while Eva Longoria and Korn take the reins on November 19 (NBC, 11:30 pm - 1:00 am ET). Also, "Saturday Night Live in the '80s: Lost and Found," the follow-up to the Emmy-nominated documentary on the first five years, airs Sunday, November 13 (9:00 - 11:00 pm ET).

Jason Lee, currently starring in and producing NBC's breakout comedy hit "My Name Is Earl" makes his "SNL" debut. Lee brings a wide range of credits with him - from voicing the villain "Syndrome" in the animated smash "The Incredibles" to his work in Cameron Crowe's "Almost Famous" and many of Kevin Smith's films including his Independent Spirit Award-winning performance in "Chasing Amy."

Joining Lee for their fourth appearance on the show are the Foo Fighters. One of the most successful and popular rock bands of the last decade, the band returns to "SNL" to perform tracks from its critically acclaimed double album "In Your Honor," which features a heavy disc and an acoustic disc - a real departure for the Grammy-winning band.

On November 19, "Desperate Housewives" star Eva Longoria takes the stage with musical guest Korn.

Playing the sexpot "Gabrielle" on the megahit, Longoria has been named one of "People's 50 Most Beautiful People" and the Hottest Woman in the World on Maxim's 2005 annual "Hot 100 List." She will soon be seen in the feature films "Harsh Times" with Christian Bale and "The Sentinel" with Michael Douglas.

Taking the musical stage at "SNL" for the first time is hard rock act Korn. The band consistently redefines the parameters of heavy music and is always at the genre's cutting edge. With their dedicated fan base, they have sold 25 million albums worldwide and have seen their last four albums debut at #1 on the Billboard charts. Their latest, "See You On The Other Side," has already produced the hot single "Twisted Transistor."

"Saturday Night Live," which premiered on October 11, 1975, is from SNL Studios in association with Broadway Video. The creator and executive producer is Lorne Michaels. Steve Higgins produces. Marci Klein and Mike Shoemaker are producers. Beth McCarthy Miller directs.
