SNL ROARS THROUGH MARCH

UPCOMING SHOWS: February 27 - Jennifer Lopez/ Jennifer Lopez; March 6 � Zach Galifianakis/ Vampire Weekend; Jude Law/ Pearl Jam

New York, NY - February 24, 2010 - "Saturday Night Live" continues with three back-to-back original shows starting February 27 with Jennifer Lopez pulling double duty for the second time as host and musical guest.

Comedian Zach Galifianakis will make his SNL hosting debut March 6. Known for his hilariously unconventional stand-up style and off-beat comedy, Galifianakis has emerged as one of today's most talked about up-and-coming actors after starring in 2009's Golden Globe winning comedy, "The Hangover." Galifianakis has also appeared in HBO's series "Bored To Death," "Into The Wild," G-Force," and the Oscar nominated drama, "Up In The Air." He will next be seen later this year alongside Robert Downey Jr. in the feature film, "Due Date."

Joining Galifianakis on March 6, Vampire Weekend makes their second SNL appearance. Formed while studying at Columbia University, this eclectic quartet burst onto the music scene with a deafening amount of buzz. Their self-titled debut in 2008 received universal acclaim, debuted in the Top 20 on the Billboard Album chart and has recently gone gold. The band's sophomore album, "Contra," was released on January 12th and debuted at number one on the Billboard charts.

Academy-award nominated Actor Jude Law hosts the March 13th show. He will next be seen in the sci-fi comedy "Repo Men" March 19, also starring Liev Schreiber and Forest Whitaker. Law, who has earned Academy Award nominations for his performances in "The Talented Mr. Ripley" and "Cold Mountain," recently starred alongside Robert Downey Jr. in "Sherlock Holmes." Law's credits include "The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus," "Alfie," "The Holiday," and his recent performance on Broadway in Shakespeare's "Hamlet."

One of the most popular and influential rock bands of the past two decades, Pearl Jam makes their fourth SNL appearance in celebration of their new, self-released ninth studio album, "Backspacer." According to Rolling Stone, their latest album "backspaces to that boyish spirit, with the shortest, tightest, punkiest tunes they've ever banged out." The self-released Backspacer debuted at number one on the Billboard Top 200 Chart, and its second single, "Just Breathe," recently reached number one on the AAA Radio Chart. Since their best-selling debut studio album "Ten," the Seattle quintet continues to receive critical acclaim. Pearl Jam's songs, including "Alive," "Even Flow," and "Better Man" have become modern classics, and the band continues to remain a major force in rock and roll.

"Saturday Night Live" is from SNL Studios in association with Broadway Video. The creator and executive producer is Lorne Michaels. Steve Higgins and Marci Klein are producers. Ken Aymong is supervising producer. Seth Meyers is head writer. Don Roy King directs.
