Billie Eilish is used ot notching firsts by now. But in the promo for her maiden voyage on the good ship Saturday Night Live, the "Bad Guy" singer has a lot to learn from a veteran host about how to navigate the sometimes choppy late night sketch waters. "It's my first day at SNL," Eilish says as she walks into the famed Studio 8H building and bumps into this weekend's host, old timer Woody Harrelson.

A skateboard slung over his shoulder, the three-timer who hosted twice before Billie was even born manages to insult longest-running cast member Kenan Thompson and Heidi Gardner before saving Billie from some hazing by "Weekend Update" jocks Michael Che and Colin Jost. It's all good in the end, though. 

Eilish and Harrelson will become cool kids on this Saturday's (Sept. 28) season premiere. Emmy-winner Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Taylor Swift will follow on Oct. 5. Oct. 12's episode will feature David Harbour as the host, and Camila Cabello as the musical guest. Kristen Stewart will then host the Nov. 2 episode, and Eddie Murphy will host on Dec. 21. (Musical guests for those two eps are TBD.)
