Tina Fey Back On SNL

Saturday Night Live is coming back, and they're going for four straight weeks of new shows, which they haven't done since 1976.  The normal pattern for the show is three weeks on, one week off. Executive Producer Lorne Michaels says the last attempt at this almost killed the cast, whose weeks are pretty much aleepless when preparing for the live show.  The first host for the comeback will be ex-cast member Tina Fey

The only other known guest host is Ellen Page.  During the strike, Ben Affleck was scheduled to host, and Amy Winehouse was to perform, so we'll see if those two will become part of the comeback lineup.
