Lena Dunham, creator and star of HBO’s “Girls,” will make her “Saturday Night Live” hosting debut on March 8.

Musical guests will be The National, who are also making their debut on NBC’s long-running comedy show. The National’s most recent album, “Trouble Will Find Me,” received a Grammy nomination for alternative album this year.
