Louie from New York, it's Saturday night!

With just three episodes left in the 40th season, NBC announced that the season finale of "Saturday Night Live" will be hosted by Louis C.K. on May 16, with musical guest Rihanna. On May 2, Scarlett Johansson will host with Wiz Khalifa performing on "SNL" for the first time, and on May 9, Reese Witherspoon takes the helm with musical guest Florence + the Machine.

This will be C.K.'s third time hosting "SNL," having first done so back in November 2012 the weekend after Hurricane Sandy and again in March 2014. The comedian has received two Emmy nominations for his performances on "SNL," with highlights like "Lincoln," "Black Jeopardy!," nearly 10 minutes of new stand-up material in each monologue and, of course, his epic make-out session with Kate McKinnon

"Saturday Night Live" resumes Saturday, May 2 at 11:30 p.m./10:30 p.m. central on NBC.
