Allow me to steal a bit from the amazing Amy Poehler and Seth Meyers and ask, “Really?! Really, Lorne Michaels?!” Because I’m hearing that Lindsay Lohan has been asked to host SNL again this season, specifically the season opener. And that makes me wonder if Mr. Michaels hasn’t been experimenting with choice substances a little, because perhaps he’s forgotten the hot mess of 2012? Oh, and everything she’s ever done in the last 10 years.
I think we’re all forgetting that she’s been out of rehab for like, five minutes, and everyone acted like her “hosting gig” on Chelsea Lately was not unlike the second coming of Christ. I mean, they really couldn’t think of anyone else? Anyone better, more reliable? There are a ton of promising movies coming out this fall, I’m sure it wouldn’t be hard to come up with a few celebs ready and willing to perform sketch comedy to whore out their upcoming projects.
I’m already nervous enough as it is about this season with so many of my favorite people not returning. I don’t know these newbies! Will they win over my heart immediately like Kate McKinnon did? Probably not. I’m sure I’m not the only person who feels this way, either. Which makes the decision of asking Lindsay Lohan to host the season premiere all the more wishy-washy for me- a stronger host would get me excited for the transition of new cast members.
All that being said, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t looking forward to some sort of skit that involves a mockery of this:
