Saturday Night Live is on fire in its 41st season. Following visits from [deep breath] Miley Cyrusthe Weeknd, Amy Schumer, Tracy Morgan, Demi LovatoSia and Lorde, this weekend will feature Adele as musical guest, the day after she drops 25, and Matthew McConaughey as host. The next three episodes have also taken shape:

Dec. 5: Ryan Gosling and Leon Bridges
Dec. 12: Chris Hemsworth and Chance the Rapper
Dec. 19: Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Bruce Springsteen

These will be the first SNL performances from Bridges and Chance, who tweeted that he's the first independent artist to hit the stage. (And teased his third mixtape in the process!) Springsteen made his debut in 1992 and hasn't returned since his second visit, back in 2002. Amy Poehler last hosted five years ago, which was her first time since leaving the cast in 2008. Tina Fey, Poehler's co-star in the new movie Sisters, has hosted four times since '08, most recently on the season 39 premiere.
