Dave Chappelle makes his "Saturday Night Live" hosting debut Nov. 12 with musical guest A Tribe Called Quest.

James Spader chats with Jimmy Fallon about “The Blacklist’s” fourth season and its new time slot.

Chappelle, who famously walked away from his Comedy Central program "Chappelle's Show" in 2005 after signing a $50 million contract, will host the first post-election "SNL."

Tribe will perform from their first studio album in 18 years, “We Got It From Here ... Thank You 4 Your Service” due out Nov. 11. The new album will be the last to feature founding member Phife Dawg who died in March.

After a prolonged hiatus Chappelle returned to stand-up in 2014 playing several large scale venues including Radio City Music Hall. But for most of 2016 he's been playing smaller, intimate shows including a scheduled stand-up performance this Friday at The Cutting Room in NYC.
