Fred Armisen will host this weekend's Saturday Night Live season finale episode and he's excited. Maybe too excited.

The former cast member seemed to have forgotten how the whole "Live from New York, it's Saturday Night!" routine usually goes, dropping it a new promo clip released Wednesday (May 18). Sitting on a bench with the show's Kate McKinnon, Armisen got a bit over eager and tried to start the show -- four days early.

In another teaser, Armisen and McKinnon promise to answer all the lingering questions you've had, like ever, in your entire life: Who lives? Who dies? Who gets married? Who breaks up? Where did we come from? What does it all mean? Can it be? When? Should? And more. 

Courtney Barnett will be the show's musical guest. Notably, this finale is the last chance to see SNL spoof the current presidential candidates until the fall.
