What a week for Tina Fey to return to Saturday Night Live, which itself is returning from a three-week hiatus. To say that a lot has happened since the last SNL is an understatement, and yet understatement is something we never have to worry about when it comes to SNL, is it?
The musical guest is Ellie Goulding, who you’ll notice didn’t get a word in edgewise in the making of these promos.
I’m looking forward to seeing what Fey does. The most obvious question is whether she will assume the mantle of Sarah Palin again. And I would guess that Fred Armisen’s bin Laden impersonation will be formally retired this week, while his Obama impersonation emerge with a new spring in his step.
What would you like to see Fey and SNL grapple with this week?
Please feel free to offer your suggestions below. Then come back here tomorrow for a review of the show; thanks.
