After the Parks and Recreation star's big debut, Emmy winner Sarah Silverman shows up with Maroon 5 for the Oct. 4 show. Silverman was on SNL's staff from 1993-1994, but this too will be her first time ever hosting.

The 40th season of the iconic show will be celebrated on NBC with a live three-hour special on Feb. 15, 2015. Past and present cast members are said to be making an appearance.

Do you think Pratt and Silverman are good choices to guest host?
