NBC is giving us the best holiday gift ever!

The Peacock network has been killing it this season with their surprisingly hilarious Saturday Night Live hosts. We've still got Kerry Washington's catchy rendition of "What Does My Girl Say?" stuck in our heads. And Lady Gaga's dancing stage mom skit? Priceless!

And now fans can get excited for three more sensational celebrities who will be hosting and/or performing during SNL's December shows. Better put on some shades y'all, because we're about to name-drop some of the biggest and brightest stars in the business...

Kicking it off on Dec. 7, the long-running sketch comedy show will welcome back actor Paul Rudd for his third hosting stint. Rudd, who will be promoting his highly anticipated new flick Anchorman 2, will be joined by the hot-boy-band-of-the-moment One Direction. Fingers crossed Paul will get his fangirl on!

Then on Dec. 14, comedy legend John Goodman will make his 13th hosting appearance. Goodman is just three hosting gigs shy of tying with Alec Baldwin, who currently holds the SNL hosting record with an impressive 16 times. The Argo star, who will next be seen in Netflix's new series Alpha House, will be joined by the Grammy Award-winning musical guest Kings Of Leon.

And last, but most certainly not least, SNL alum and former Weekend Update host Jimmy Fallon will return to Studio 8H on Dec. 21 for his second time hosting since leaving the series in 2004. To make our holidays even better, Fallon will be joined by his best friend and fan-favorite host Justin Timberlake. The "Mirrors" singer is scheduled to be the night's musical act, but we would bet our entire SNL DVD collection that Timberlake is going to make it into a skit or two... or seven.

(E! and NBC are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
