Lena Dunham to Host ‘Saturday Night Live’ for the First Time

By: Gabrielle Chung / February 25, 2014

Proving that girls — and Girls — truly run the world, Lena Dunham‘s empire has stretched its way to NBC where she will be hosting Saturday Night Live for the very first time. The network broke the news Tuesday, announcing that the HBO star will host its March 8 episode alongside musical guest, The National.

Like a true millennial, Dunham expressed her joy on Twitter, writing:

Last year, SNL spoofed Dunham’s TV show when Tina Fey took on hosting duties. I’m hoping that Blerta will make a comeback somehow.
