'Saturday Night Live'
(Sat., 11:30PM, NBC) 34th season premiere
He nabbed the gold, but can he bring the funny? Olympian Michael Phelps becomes the latest athlete to host 'SNL,' as the show kicks off a fall that should be especially rife with election season material.

For tonight, the focus will be on the swimming god, which likely means gags about his long limbs, gold medal prowess and sudden media ubiquitousness.

A bonus (besides that $1 million he received from Speedo, we mean) for Phelps: One of his favorite rappers, 'Lil Wayne (he of 'Lollipop' fame), is the musical guest.
