I guess they didn’t want to use Tina Fey again, so Saturday Night Live dipped into their recent-alum pool and recruited “that other funny chick”, Amy Poehler, to host SNL’s season premiere on September 25th!

I love T. Fey, but Amy Poehler is an awesome second banana, not afraid to act a fool for laughs, and her own show, Parks and Recreation, was consistently funnier than The Office last season (yeah, I said it!). This may be her first time hosting, but she has what it takes to get us LOLing. Plus, we can predict an Amy and Seth Meyers reunion for Weekend Update! Really!

As for the rest of the SNL cast, there will be some missing and new faces. Jenny Slate will be gone after just one season with the show (ouch?). The master of weird/creepy characters, Will Forte, is also leaving (so long MacGruber!). On the other hand, there are four new cast members will be joining: Vanessa Bayer and Paul Brittain of iO Chicago (a.k.a. improvOlympic), comedian Jay Pharoah and Taran Killam of MADtv (he’s also engaged to actress Colbie Smulders from How I Met Your Mother).

Saturday Night Live premieres Sept. 25th on NBC. Musical guest will be Teenage Dreaming, California Gurl: Katy Perry!

Saturday Night Live’s Jenny Slate Swears In

I’m sure you’ve all seen this in one place or another today!

New Saturday Night Live cast member Jenny Slate dropped an F-bomb on this weekend’s season premiere (hosted by Megan Fox, with musical guest U2).  Here’s the clip, somewhat NSFW:

Oopsies!  I’m on live television!  I love her puffed-out I-made-a-mistake cheeks.

But don’t worry, everybody, big man in charge at SNL Lorne Michaels ain’t mad at her.  Here’s what he had to say:

“It was literally her first time on the show. There was nothing dirty, just a slip of the tongue. It was ‘frickin’, frickin’, frickin’ ‘ and then boom! The pain that Jenny is going through is, I’m sure, considerably worse than that experienced by anybody who saw it.”

Heh.  Kinda being a drama queen there, Lorne, but I’ll take it.

I’m seeing this as more of a fun viral video moment of the week than an actual big deal.  Hopefully Slate sees it the same way.  Poor girl!
