“Saturday Night Live” returns with a new episode Jan. 18 and Drake will serve as both host and musical guest. The first promos for the episode have been released, letting the rapper show off his acting chops as he warps back to his “Degrassi: The Next Generation” days for some good, old melodrama.
The hidden gem in the promos is Jay Pharoah and Bobby Moynihan trying to convince Drake they “mix beats” in the “SNL” control room. He doesn’t buy it, but they’ve got proof.
“Saturday Night Live” airs Saturdays at 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC. Are you looking forward to Drake on “SNL”?

Chris E. Hayner is equal parts nerd, crazy person and coffee. He watches too much TV, knows more about pro wrestling than you do and remembers every single show from the TGIF lineup. You may have seen him as a pro-shark protester in "Sharknado 3." His eventual memoir will be called "You're Wrong, Here's Why..." TV words to live by: "I'm a firm believer that sometimes it's right to do the wrong thing."
