NOT Lindsay Lohan, as we reported last month. Well, that is the problem with this business, sometimes some things leak that are not exactly set in stone, as was the case with “Slow Hands” Lohan. But, to make UP for that, we have some good news. Variety just announced who the first three stars are for the first three weeks, and we have decided to tell you, in case you don’t actually read Variety, that the show opener will be well worth tuning in for.
The first week SNL returns, which is September 28, one of our favorite ladies in the world will be hosting with Arcade Fire as band. Tina Fey! It is okay if you want to stand up and holler and be excited for it. Truth is, as fun as it would have been to see if Lohan could pull it off, we are MUCH more excited at the prospect of Tina Fey coming back to SNL, even if it is just for a night. Will she bust out some of her old characters? We can safely say yes, but you will have to tune in to find out.
Next up, on October 5th, we have Miley Cyrus hosting AND performing. I swore I would never talk about her again after all that VMA hype, so moving on.
And the person SNL looks like they locked down for their third week is the quite unfunny Bruce Willis. Come on, I am not trying to be mean, but the guy is known for be a little too serious. so what they have in store for him we won’t know until middle October, but with an opening roster like that, looks like SNL still might just be a must-watch, even after losing most of their big name stars.
