"SNL" RINGS IN 2012 WITH AN ALL-STAR LINEUP

January 7 - Charles Barkley/ Kelly Clarkson; January 14 - Daniel Radcliffe/ Lana Del Rey

New York, NY - December 19, 2011 - Saturday Night Live celebrates the new year starting off January 7 with Charles Barkley and Kelly Clarkson returning to studio 8H.

Barkley, returning for his third hosting appearance, played basketball for sixteen seasons in the NBA, is an eleven time NBA All Star, an NBA Most Valuable Player, a two-time Olympic gold medal winner with Team USA Basketball, one of the NBA's 50 Greatest Players in History, and a member of the Basketball Hall of Fame. Barkley is about to begin his twelfth year as a studio analyst for the Emmy Award-winning "Inside the NBA" on TNT and his second year in studio for the NCAA's "March Madness" college basketball tournament coverage on CBS and TNT. Barkley has written four books.

Returning for her third appearance as musical guest, Clarkson recently released her fifth studio album, "Stronger," which includes the Billboard chart-topper "Mr. Know It All." Since bursting onto the music scene 10 years ago, Kelly Clarkson has released 5 studio albums, sold over 20 million albums worldwide, 10 million albums in the US and has had 7 singles in the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart. She is the recipient of 2 Grammy Awards, 4 American Music Awards, 3 MTV Awards and 12 Billboard Awards.

Daniel Radcliffe will make his hosting debut on January 14. Radcliffe will next be seen in the supernatural thriller, "The Woman In Black," due out February 3. Radcliffe rose to international fame starring in "Harry Potter," the highest grossing film series of all time. He also appeared on the Broadway stage in "Equus" and "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying."

Lana Del Rey will make her debut appearance alongside Radcliffe. Her first studio album "Born To Die," will be released January 31. Her single, "Video Games" has already received critical acclaim, and Rolling Stone recently featured her in their annual "Hot Issue."

"Saturday Night Live" is produced in association with Broadway Video. The creator and executive producer is Lorne Michaels.
