Tina Fey is hosting the season premiere of Saturday Night Live tomorrow! It’s always a guaranteed good time when an old cast member comes back to host, and also, obviously, Tina Fey is the comic genius of our times. The Queen of Giggles, if you will. Here are a few things we hope she does this Saturday!
1. Give some props to the new cast members.
I don’t know the new cast members, and it could potentially take several years before they stand out in any real way. Tina Fey could help by giving one or more of them a plum role in the funniest sketch of the night.
2. Make fun of the Emmys.
Someone needs to refer to how horrific that awards show was, and I think Tina could pinpoint it well. Maybe she’ll also post death montages between every sketch? Yes, she was involved in the show, but she could apologize by poking fun at it.
3. Script a brilliant sketch about Syria/the debt ceiling/defunding Obamacare.
Tina understands how to make complicated political issues really funny. Please do that for us again this weekend, Tina.
4. Bring special guests out.
That we want to see her reunited with Amy Poehler in Studio 8-H is a given. But what about another former Weekend Update co-host like Jimmy Fallon? What about an Anchorman 2 preview with Will Ferrell? There is no end to my dreams.
5. Film a funny commercial.
One of Tina’s strengths were those gauzy, hilarious faux commercials, like Brownie Husband and of course, Mom Jeans. Maybe something for the new iPhone? Bring it, Tina.
