    Ya know I am not ready for a Kristen Wiig return. I enjoyed Kristen, but by the end of her run on SNL she was really over used. She was in basically every single sketch. Once Amy Poheler and Tina Fey left Kristen really stepped up, but then it became too much. I would have loved maybe another year before she returned to host.

  7. S. from E. now says:

  8. Jason says:

  9. Maddy says:

    Love Kristen Wiig, but think it is way too soon for a return.

  10. Line says:

    I love this…I cannot wait for this and I am super excited.
    I love that this is happening so fast..I did not think it would happen. I know some people think it might be too soon and she’s over-used. But it’s not and she isn’t!

    She’s a fantastic and talented actress and she’d done so many amazing things on SNL and I know she’s gonna rock that episode!!

    btw, I want some oldies back…two a holes and hollywood dish

  11. Eric says:

    One of my favorite SNL alums in recent history and one of my favorite bands gracing the stage on the same night. Whoa.

  12. Ed says:

    It’d be nice if the Target Lady and…can’t think of the characters name but the woman who always had to one up you. I remember her saying something about giving birth to her LMAO

  13. Jon says:

    Thanks for the warning. Unscheduling DVR now.

    The Lawrence Welk tiny handed singer. :) Cracks me up every time. And when Melissa McCarthy played a bucked tooth singer in the same sketch, it was just hilarious. :)

  16. Danielle H. says:

    YESSS… she should have been the finale though.

  17. DOT says:

    Right way to soon for her to host I was just loving snl again they killed it by putting her in every sketch and we all know she only got famous after poehler and fey left

  18. cjeffery7 says:

    i’d like to see The Target Lady the most. she hasn’t been around for a while anyway. and maybe the Aunt character who reviews movies on Update. or Paula Deen – “booter and oial seyeth”
