— It’s a big return for Saturday Night Live this week. Chris Pratt — the hunky lead of the blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy and Parks and Recreation’s adorable buffoon, Andy — is joined by musical guest and pint-sized diva-in-training Ariana Grande.

New Voice judges, Shonda's soapy melodramas and more, AFTER THE JUMP …

Lucy Lawless (Xena: Warrior Princess, Spartacus) joins the fray as mercenary Isabelle Hartley.
