Tracy Morgan Returning to TV to Host Saturday Night Live

Sixteen months after the accident on the New Jersey turnpike that nearly cost him his life, Tracy Morgan has announced that his long-awaited return to TV will be a hosting gig on the upcoming 41st season of Saturday Night Live.

Since the accident, speculation has been that Morgan may never return to acting but it looks like he’s coming through a lot better than expected. He will make his triumphant return to SNL on October 17th. This will be his second time hosting the show, since serving on the cast from 1996 to 2003.

Other folks making headlines for hosting this season are Amy Schumer and Miley Cyrus. Variety has a little more on all that.
