LOL ... this is awesome and yet very unusual for Saturday Night Live to choose Barkley now. They normally pick the who's-who of the entertainment world at that time. Weird that they ask Charles back.
Basketball great Charles Barkley will host the first "Saturday Night Live" of the year, Jan. 9, the show announced over the weekend.
The last time he hosted was 1993, when the musical guest was Nirvana. .
