'Saturday Night Live': New premiere promos featuring host Amy Poehler

Posted on

Ahead of Amy Poehler’s return to Saturday Night Live for this Saturday’s season premiere, she and Andy Samberg stepped out of the studio for a series of rooftop promos, notable for several things: (1) Kudos for the Parks and Recreation love, which I hope will be repeated in some way, shape, or form during every skit this Saturday.* (2) Samberg is definitely the Garth in this relationship. (3) Poehler hasn’t seen The Town yet, or she simply has a grudge against Blake Lively. Or she’s joking.

Is it possible to bring Schwing! or Excellent! back at this point? Not!

* In fact, wouldn’t it be great if Poehler’s costars from Pawnee, who tragically have been relegated to a mid-season replacement, joined her on Saturday night?
