Rolling Stones on SNL
This is Sweeps and all the networks are putting their best stuff out front to garner highest ratings by those few select households who track their TV viewing and help to determine if a show is picked up, cancelled, or continued for another season, like Saturday Night Live, one of those television programs that has become an institution unto itself. Well, move over everybody, Saturday Night Live! has booked none other than Rolling Stones lead man, Mick Jagger who is set to host the season finale on May 19th. If that’s not enough to attract viewers, Eli Manning and Rihanna will Host (May 5), along with Will Ferrell and Josh Brolin, all of them appearing during this time period.
The Stones celebrate their 50th anniversary (formed in 1962) with a 352-page book The Rolling Stones: 50, by Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood, expected to be released on July 12th. Would be great to see them perform here in Hawaii! Uncle Tom? Tom Moffat? Are you listening?
