SNL returns Feb. 23 with Fey!#1
Posted: 2/13/08 at 5:41pm
Ellen Page to host March 1.

I am so excited for its return! Who is with me?


Live from New York, it will be Tina Fey on a new episode of Saturday Night Live! Producers have announced that the late-nighter will return Feb. 23 with the former head writer/cast member at the helm, making it one of the first programs to rebound from the three-month-long WGA strike. (No official word yet on when Fey's new baby, 30 Rock, will return, although Ausiello sez we should see five to 10 new eps sometime this spring.)

"It's been a long dry spell without Saturday Night Live on the air," Rick Ludwin, head of late-night entertainment at NBC, tells the AP. "They've been sitting on the sidelines watching all this happening in politics and the primaries. SNL thrives during an election year and they can't wait to get back on." Indeed! In fact, the last new SNL featured a skit in which Hillary Clinton hosted a Halloween party where the other candidates joked about the inevitability of her presidency. Barack Obama, wearing a "Barack Obama" mask, guest-starred. What a difference three months makes, huh?

Ellen Page, Juno's Oscar-nominated home skillet, has been confirmed to host SNL the following week honest to blog! Mickey O'Connor

This is so great! I've been missing my weekly dose of late-night comedy. And Fey hosting? Rock the eff on.

I had a feeling they'd go with her as the short-notice host. And I'm setting my DVR as I type.

Great news! I can't wait to see this. I have a feeling that this is going to be one of the best SNL's since Tina left.

I really wish they'd do a PROJECT RUNWAY parody. I think Maya Rudolph would make a hilarious Heidi Klum.

Anyone watching?
It's actually funny!

How about Tina's rant on Weekend Update?
I don't WANT to live in what they call "a certain way." In the first place I'd be no good at it and besides that I don't want to be identified with any one class of people.

I've just started watching it and I laughed so hard when she said "I can do it!" like an old time movie.

I thought Steve Martin was the highlight, but then I find him the highlight of whatever he's involved in.

I thought this was the funniest SNL since- gosh I can't remember when. I was worried when the opening sketch sort of laid there, but Fey's Monologue followed by the Once-a-year period pill commercial mad me laugh out loud. More Tina Please!
No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.

It was really funny. And I like how they kept making fun of the Oscar nominated movies. Is Mya still on the show?

Don Pardo: 90 and looking and sounding great!!!!! I'm glad they mentioned him tonight, since they totally dissed him on the 25th anniversary special. He's been a great part of SNL since the very begining. I'm not positive, but I would say he's the only person to be with the show it's entire run. Didn't Lorne Michaels even leave for a while?
I killed the boss, you don't think they're gonna fire me over a thing like that!!!!

They do air repeats. They have three more new episodes in a row schedules, so maybe after that this one will be on. That segment with Daniel Plainview and "I Drink Your Milkshake" was great. Bill Hader's impression of Daniel Day Lewis was spot on. And who was that new girl? Has she been on before?

No this was her first show.

Her Rachel Ray was pretty dead on.


I missed the last skit. I fell asleep during Carrie's last performance.
