Seth MacFarlane, the man behind "Ted" and "Family Guy," will be the first host on the new season of "Saturday Night Live."

"Saturday Night Live" will soon return for its 38th season, and while some familiar faces won't be around anymore, new ones will make their way to the live stage.

"SNL" vets Kristen Wiig and Andy Samberg said so long to the show after last season, but on Wednesday NBC announced that Seth MacFarlane will say hello as host on the Sept. 15 season premiere.

The "Family Guy" and "Ted" creator will kick off the season along with musical guest Frank Ocean.

While MacFarlane will be the season's first host, his isn't the only big name on the way. Joseph Gordon-Levitt will take the stage on Sept. 22, with musical guest Mumford & Sons. And James Bond film star Daniel Craig will host on Oct. 6 with Muse carrying the tunes.
