Four years ago, Saturday Night Live surprised America with the return of Tina Fey. Fey famously portrayed Sarah Palin, who sports “Tina Fey Glasses,” during the 2008 election. Amy Poehler also returned to the show, lending her talents to a Hillary Clinton impersonation.
This year, NBC makes it possible to relive these moments and create some new memories with new nominees in the latest presidential race. NBC’s chairman Bob Greenblatt announced the news at Tuesday morning’s meeting of the Television Critic’s Association. The episodes will air on the last two Thursdays of September, the 20 and 27. As a result of this decision, NBC has decided to push back the premiere of 30 Rock to October 4.
A lot of fans are wondering whether Jason Sudeikis will be playing the role of GOP nominee Mitt Romney. According to Huffpost Comedy, “Sudeikis has hinted that he will leave the show before next season begins, although no casting decisions have been formally announced.” Casting aside, SNL reminds us to have a sense of humor when it comes to disagreements and exposes the absurdity in politics.
Personally, I am more interested in who will portray the GOP Vice Presidential nominee than the actual person who will be nominated.
