SNL Season Premier With Host Michael Phelps

I will be the first to admit that Saturday Night Live has been disappointing, at best, over the last several years.  Great actors – but bad writing, in my honest opinion.

However, I am hoping this season things turn around.  It definitely is getting off to a great start with eight time US Olympic gold medal winner, Michael Phelps hosting.

I also think SNL will have a lot of political fodder to work with… rumor has it that Tina Fey (my favorite) will be doing Sarah Palin.  I hope this is true because Fey physically looks so much like Palin, and I have no doubt that she (Fey) will do a dead-on impersonation of Palin.  Come on Tina Fey please be on tomorrow night and play Sarah Palin.

And Amy Poehler as Cindy McCain, another dead-on physical look-a-like!  Barack Obama is also slated to make an appearance, as himself I'm sure, and SNL hopes to lure back Maya Rudolph to play Michelle Obama, according to

So Saturday night I will do my best to stay up (at least for the opening- then record it) to watch SNL on NBC at 11:30 p.m. EST.  If you watch SNL leave a comment and let us know what you thought.  Hope to hear from you!
