Did you hear the one about Lindsay Lohan hosting Saturday Night Live for the fourth time in her career? (If you’ve been watching NBC at all this week, then yes, of course you have.) The star, who has found herself in a little bit of a pickle since her last visit to Studio 8H in 2006, will be turning the tables on late night comedy, in that she’ll be the one poking fun at LiLo mania. (“People are probably wondering what I’ve been up to,” Lohan joked in her self-deprecating SNL promo.)
Lohan (seen here with SNL cast member Kenan Thompson) has promised she’s making a clean and sober comeback. But will the actress, who has more or less become a punchline over the past few years, actually be able to make viewers laugh with her à la that classic Debbie Downer sketch, rather than at her? Will Jimmy Fallon stop by in support of Lohan as quasi-promised? Or are any and all attempts to make light of her decidedly unfunny troubles just doomed to make us feel as uncomfortable as musical guest Jack White so visibly does in this recent promo spot? See for yourself:
