Good news for all you SNL heads out there who’ve been fiending for your Saturday dose of the late-night funnies. Saturday Night Live is scheduled to be back on February 23, with Tina Fey as host. Elle Page will be hosting March 3. Also: They’ll make more episodes! Hallelujah! Exactly what we’ve all been waiting for: More Jojo the Valet and the Sofa King guys.
“SNL” plans to produce shows for four straight weeks. That is highly unusual for the series, which rarely runs for more than three weeks without a break. But Ben Silverman, the co-chairman of NBC Entertainment, said: “It’s a political year, so we want to jam it with ‘SNL.’ We hope to have as many as six or eight more this season.”[NYT]
