List Rules Only people who have not already hosted an episode or been announced as a future host.

Lorne Michaels has his quirks and one of them is being picky about who should host SNL. Guest hosts are usually people who are popular at the time, worthy of the title, or the first people to pick up the phone when the dream Saturday Night Live hosts fall through. Who would you like to see host SNL in the future?

It’s shocking when you think about the people who haven’t hosted SNL yet and then you remember that Lindsay Lohan has. The hosting roster is at the mercy of which TV show or film is doing well at the time, which makes sense, but it’s thrown dirt on the dream Saturday Night Live hosts list.

Norman Reedus may have shot SNL cast member Pete Davidson on "Weekend Update" with a crossbow but that only served to tease fans. It’s not the same thing as hosting by a mile. Reedus is a funny guy, an expert licker of people’s faces, and up for anything - much like Kristen Bell, Will Arnett, Ilana Glazer, and countless other celebrities and funny actors who are on this list of people who should host SNL next.

If anyone on this list gets their chance to host the NBC sketch comedy show in the upcoming seasons, it will be updated here. In the meantime, consider your dream Saturday Night Live hosts. Which of the people who haven’t hosted SNL yet are most deserving? Upvote the people who should host Saturday Night Live and let the folks over at Studio 8H know what’s up.
