John Goodman will host Saturday Night Live for an astonishing 13th time this weekend. (Note for trivia hounds: This makes Goodman SNL‘s third most frequent host, close on the heels of Alec Baldwin, who’s hosted 16 times, and Steve Martin, who’s hosted 15 times.)

Somehow, though, it’s been 150 12 long years since the last time Goodman helmed the show — and in the promos below, you’ll see precisely why that’s ridiculous. Whether he’s skewering Clinton-era “celebrity” Linda Tripp during his ’90s SNL heyday or goofing around with current cast member Taran Killam outside of Rockefeller Center, Goodman and SNL just make sense together. In other words: EW’s Saturday Night Live host poll is about to get interesting. Especially if Goodman inspires a cameo from his TV wife Roseanne.
