CBS's Mike and Molly star Melissa McCarthy will host Saturday Night Live tonight for a 3rd time and let's hope this time she will be charming. Mel first hosted SNL after filming Bridesmaids with former SNL cast member Kristen Wig back in 2011. She then returned to host in promotion of her comedy with Sandra Bullock The Heat. Melissa always delivered the funny as far back as her debut role on the then WB hit series Gilmore Girls and it is no secret that she is now hosting purely off of her talents.

Tonight is also the first episode of 12 seasons without the Weekend Update's Seth Meyers. Seth has moved on to host his own Late Night talk show replacing Jimmy Fallon who is also moving on to The Tonight Show replacing Jay Leno.

With all these changes transpiring, the 43 year old comedian will have to bring her A game tonight and she will not have to do it a lone. New feature comedian Sasheer Zamata will be on her 3rd episode and she is currently the first black female cast member since Mya Rudolph in 2006. There's a lot of excitement circling tonight and the potential is endless.

Check out the slideshow on some of Melissa's most memorable SNL moments.

Saturday Night Live airs tonight @11:30pm/10:30c on NBC with musical guest Imagine Dragons.
