Chris Pratt, a talented six-pack of abs with limbs, a head, and a voice, will usher in the 40th season of "SNL" this Saturday, Sept. 27, and "SNL" cast member Kate McKinnon could not be more excited. The abs can open jars of pickles, they can resist sexual advances, and they often throw confused, furtive glances at McKinnon. The impressive abs will be joined by musical guest Ariana Grande.
