It seems like sort of a surprise that it hasn't happened sooner, but Voice of a Generation Lena Dunham will be hosting Show of a Generation* Saturday Night Live with Band of a Generation** The National on March 8.
Earlier today, Dunham tweeted:
Thank you for the SNL love. Dream come true. Can't wait to debut my character "girl who googled serial killers all night & has lots to say"!

That is actually a character who I can highly relate to.
A Girls sketch seems inevitable, but it's very unlikely that anything will manage to top Tina Fey's turn as Hannah's new roommate Blerta in this parody from last year:
Still, Dunham is enthusiastic, a good sport and doesn't take herself too seriously, which are probably three of the most important qualities in a SNL host. The fourth and most important quality is a little harder to nail down as it involves being either Melissa McCarthy or Justin Timberlake. (That said, 3 out of 4 isn't so bad.)
*This generation = 1970s.
**I don't know what this means.
