After suffering a life-threatening car crash in June of 2014, Tracy Morgan will return to television by hosting Saturday Night LIve Oct. 17.

Last year, a truck driver, who had been awake for 28 hours crashed into Morgan's limo, killing James McNair and leaving Morgan with a very serious brain injury.

His recovery has been a long process and it has remained unknown when he would return to comedy, as he repeatedly said he wish to do. That is until Saturday Night Live tweeted out the first few hosts for the next season of the show Aug. 17:



The comedy community around Tracy Morgan has continued to be very supportive through his recovery. Longtime co-worker Tina Fey even said she would hold a role for him on her new Netflix show Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

To prepare for Morgan's return, how about rewatching one of his great SNL skits:

Matt Lauer probably wishes he could "misremember" this moment from the 40th Anniversary of SNL on Sunday.

During his the red carpet portion of the night, Lauer and co-host Savannah Guthrie were having a quick, lighthearted chat with Jim Carrey and Tina Fey about their memories from the show.

Then things got awkward.

"Can I ask you a question, you guys?" Carrey asked. "Where are you hiding Brian Williams? Where is he?"

Williams was temporarily suspended this past week from hosting the "NBC Nightly News" after he was caught lying about being shot down in a helicopter during the Iraq war… among other things.

"I just want to say something in his defense," he added, while Fey silently stood next to him. "If the helicopter in front of me gets hit, I'm taking the story."

But Carey wasn't the only one to bring up the elephant in the room.

Jerry Seinfeld mocked the news anchor in his bit later on in the night.

"You know there are so many things about 'Saturday Night Live' that people don't know," he said. "Like for example, I just found out that one of the original cast members in 1975 was Brian Williams. I didn't — I don't know if that's true. But I never heard that. It doesn't sound true. It might not be, it might not be."

The "Star Wars Episode VII" trailer has already been parodied every which way imaginable, but "Saturday Night Live" shared its own take on it this past weekend.

The new film will bring back original cast members Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher… only with a few more wrinkles.

Cameron Diaz hosted SNL on Saturday for its Thanksgiving episode, and this might be the best skit of the night.

With the help of Diaz, the women on the cast performed a song about being back home with your parents for the holiday, and - you know - mooching, napping and eating way too much food out of bowls.

Meet "Pat" Lauer: the new androgynous host of the Today Show.

The Today Show team always goes full throttle into Halloween mode with their costumes, and this year they decided to take on some iconic characters from Saturday Night Live, including the Blues Brothers, Mary Katherine Gallagher and Mom Jeans.

But they didn't just wear the costumes, they also acted out the skits.

Worth watching alone to see Kathie Lee and Hoda in drag as Wayne and Garth.
