It has been set that Tim McGraw will host "Saturday Night Live" on November 22. With the stint, he becomes one of the few country stars who have ever hosted the show apart from Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Dolly Parton, Garth Brooks and Johnny Cash.

The news came straight from McGraw's spokesperson Jesse Schmidt who said that the singer will stick to the hosting duties and occasional sketch, but not performing. The musical guest on the episode will be Ludacris and T-Pain. "I'm looking forward to hosting the show," Tim said. "I'm not exactly known for my comedy, but then again, if you've been to one of my shows, you might feel differently."

This would be the first time for McGraw to appear on the show.

This weekend on the November 15 episode, Paul Rudd whose latest movie "Role Models" hit the U.S. theaters on Friday, November 7, will host the show accompanied by Beyonce Knowles in the performing slot.
