On Monday, the comedienne tweeted a photo of herself on the show’s set (which this season is a hospital) alongside co-star star Jamie Lee Curtis.

Scream Queens Season 2 premieres Tuesday, Sept. 20, at 9/8c on Fox.

    Cheri Oteri should’ve gotten her own show after SNL. She deserves a bigger career.

    I love Ray Romano but IMO he’s not right for Get Shorty. He’s too laid back and dismissive and his personality never carries any weight. Michael DeLouise would have been marginally better.
