Saturday Night Live (SNL)

Season Premier tonight, with Michael Phelps as host. Rumored Barack Obama appearance. And this, posted on Yahoooooooooooo


By JAKE COYLE, AP Entertainment Writer
Sat Sep 13, 12:14 AM ET



NEW YORK - Tina Fey is "likely" to play Gov. Sarah Palin on "Saturday Night Live," said a person close to NBC's sketch comedy show.


Fey is "likely" to return to her former show Saturday to play the Alaskan governor and Sen. John McCain's running mate, a person close to the show told The Associated Press on Friday night. The person requested anonymity because the decision has not been announced officially. No further details were available.

Since Palin's entry onto the national political stage, speculation has been rampant over who might play Palin on the program. Many have commented that Fey resembles her.

In an interview earlier this week with The AP, "SNL" executive producer and creator Lorne Michaels said, "The whole world cast her in that role."

The final decision went down to the last minute, apparently. "SNL" premieres Saturday evening with Michael Phelps as host and a planned appearance from Sen. Barack Obama, the Democratic nominee for president.

Fey was a cast member and writer — including a stint as head writer — for "SNL" for nine years before leaving in 2006 to star in "30 Rock," which is also produced by Michaels. On Tuesday, Michaels said that should Fey play Palin, she was unlikely to remain in the part in the long-term, which depending on the election results, could be for four years or longer.

Fey's publicist did not immediately return a call requesting comment.







Couldn't find any old SNL threads, so I figured I'd start a new one. There's plenty of years, cast & characters to talk about

CNN reported late last night that Obama had pulled out of SNL

The sketch with the ugly children was slow at first, but had me cracking up by the end. All of these sketches seem like 12:50 sketches though... so that's not good.

Was a so-so episode. The Space Olympics short was probably the best part.

Tina Fey was spot-on as Sarah Palin; but as a host, Michael Phelps is a great swimmer!

The opening sketch was brilliant.
Tina Fey had her voice down pat.

Other than that, pretty much on par with the last 4 or 5 years. Hit and miss.

I love Andy Samburg for some reason. I fucking loved the sketch from last year where he is the singing superhero trying to save the woman from the mugger. And the white rapper of course is great. Space Olympics was my style as well. Just straight up goofball.

Glad to see Amy still on the show, I thought she was leaving.

Darrell Hammond still needs to go. I am sick the fuck of him.

Bill Hader is great yet criminally underused.
Jason Sudekis is good. Fred Armisen is good. Kristen Wiig is hilarious.
Throw in Amy and that's 5. That's not enough for a solid cast.

The writing is not horrible but outiside of the political sketches, it's not much better than MadTv these days, which is sad. Although it IS better because MadTV has the same problem, hit and miss. It's just, used to be, that show couldn't compete even on SNL's worst days.

I hate when athletes host. Almost all of them suck, like bad. Phelps, sorry dude.
Including one of my favorite athletes of all time, Joe Montana.
Although he did have a funny ass line and if you remember it, you win a cookie.

Why? Why? Why?

For Fuck sakes, she used to look good enough.

Women are made to feel so insecure.

I don't envy you guys.

It was ok tonite. Don't understand Lil Wayne. Phelps was good as a host for an athlete I thought. Having his mom there too was funny! He only flubbed a couple lines and was in almost every skit! It's amazing how much Tina Fey and Sarah Palin look alike! I think Fey over did Palin's "accent" though. It's not that noticeable.

I hope they manage some decent guest hosts and musical guests this season. Next week, Kings of Leon.
