Giants' Eli Manning Will Host 'Saturday Night Live' On May 5

Monday April 16th, 2012

Eli Manning has already surpassed his older brother Peyton in one area: Super Bowl rings. Now he's got his sights set on equaling big bro in another arena -- he's hosting "Saturday Night Live" for the first time.

NBC announced during a commercial break on last night's show that Manning, along with musical guest Rihanna, would appear on the May 5 show.

Peyton Manning also hosted "SNL" once, headlining the March 24, 2007 episode. Eli made an appearance in his brother's opening monologue.
