The topical sketch show continues its run of live episodes as Joseph Gordon-Levitt makes his SNL hosting debut. The actor is hot off a nuanced, acclaimed performance in the film (500) Days of Summer as well as his movie directorial debut with his short film Sparks, which he wrote and produced and for which he scored the music. Speaking of music, it'll be "too much" when the alt-rocking jam collective Dave Matthews Band hits the music stage.
