Monday: Amy Poehler, Joe Biden, A Great Big World
It'll be a sentimental kickoff with his former "Weekend Update" co-host Poehler, who was there to bid him adieu from "SNL" earlier this month. Hopefully Leslie Knope's gigantic Biden crush carries over into real life? Verdict: Stream/DVR
Tuesday: Kanye West, Russell Wilson, Author Robyn Doolittle
Give Kanye the floor for the whole show and we'll tune in. We expect Robyn Doolittle's story about Toronto Mayor Rob Ford to provide some low-hanging comedy fruit. Verdict: Stream/DVR
Wednesday: Kelly Ripa, Brad Paisley
Talk show vet Ripa should have some fun pointers for Seth. We can only hope that Paisley and band-leader Fred Armisen find some time to jam together. Verdict: Skip
Thursday: Lena Dunham, Anthony Mackie, John Mayer Trio
Dunham will surely delight (why hasn't she hosted "SNL" yet?), and film star Mackie will be sly and charismatic as ever. John Mayer Trio reunites for the gig, which is neat and all, but a John Mayer duet with Katy Perry singing "Who You Love" would have been a scintillating Week 1 treat. Verdict: Stream/DVR
Friday: Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Sophia Bush, Michael Che
By now Meyers will have found his stride, and regardless, we'd make time for close friends and frequent collaborators McKellen and Stewart any day of the week. Fingers crossed they do a sketch that allows Stewart to dust off his "quadruple take." Verdict: Cancel your Friday plans and watch this one live.
