If you consider yourself a fan of SNL like I do, you probably went through a state of depression when you heard the news that Tina Fey was leaving the cast of SNL a couple years ago.
I felt the same way when Will Ferrell & Chris Kattan left, too. But I cherish the days that they return to check-off the obligatory "hosting gig" from their SNL list of to-do's.
So welcome back, TINA FEY! I'll revel in this while it lasts... on my DVR. [NYTimes]
“Saturday Night Live” will turn to a familiar face to open its 39th season on NBC: Tina Fey, who will be the guest host for the premiere on Sept. 28. And the booking for the second week is sure to raise a few eyebrows — and some ratings points: Miley Cyrus, fresh from her much-commented on turn at the MTV Video Music Awards, will double as the guest host and musical guest on Oct. 5.
A third big name, Bruce Willis, will appear on Oct. 12, his second appearance as host.
The music acts are also high-profile. Arcade Fire will appear with Ms. Fey in the opener, and Katy Perry is booked on the show with Mr. Willis.
The choice of Ms. Fey, who starred on “SNL” for a decade, to headline the season premiere means a sure hand will be leading the cast, which is adding a raft of new members this season.
