    Radiohead will open the new season of Saturday Night Live, which will premiere on Sept. 24. The season premiere episode will be hosted by Alec Baldwin, who is one of the show's all-time funniest guest hosts.

    This season opening gig will be Radiohead's second-ever performance on SNL. Their last appearance on the sketch show was in 2000, when they were promoting Kid A. It's been a long time, so we're psyched to see Thom Yorke and co. return to the SNL stage.

    Will you tune in to the season premiere of SNL featuring Alec Baldwin and Radiohead next month? We sure will.
