"Mike and Molly" star Melissa McCarthy is returning to host NBC's "Saturday Night Live" on Feb. 1 for the third time. She'll be joined by musical guest Imagine Dragons.
McCarthy first took the "SNL" stage in 2011 and most recently hosted the show in April, 2013, earning a Primetime Emmy nomination for both appearances (outstanding guest actress in a comedy series).
The "Bridesmaids" star has two projects slated for a 2014 release ("St. Vincent De Van Nuys" alongside Bill Murray, and "Tammy" featuring an all-star cast). She's also rumored to be starring in a sequel to the Boston-filmed "The Heat," according to IMDB.
It'll be Imagine Dragons' first appearance on the show. The alternative group is nominated for record of the year and best rock performance Grammys (Jan. 26).
