Mitt Romney on ‘SNL’ Not Happening This Season

Republican presidential hopeful, Mitt Romney won’t be stopping by ‘SNL‘ on his road to the White House. At least not this season, according to the late-night sketch show’s overlord, Lorne Michaels.

“We only have three shows left and they’re pretty jammed packed. It might be in the fall, but we’ll never know, that’ll all depend on his availability,” explained ‘Saturday Night Live’ executive producer, Michaels.

Should Romney make an appearance on ‘SNL’ down the road, he’ll join the likes of Barack Obama, Sarah Palin, Hilary Clinton, Gerald Ford and John McCain, all of whom have appeared on ‘SNL,’ as Deadline, which originally reported the news, points out.

Instead, viewers can look forward to New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning with musical guest, Rihanna on May 5th, followed by ‘SNL’ alum, Will Ferrell and Usher on May 12th. The host and musical guest for the May 19th finale have yet to be announced.

Could Romney still make a last minute appearance? Anything’s possible if Michaels and company adhere to Romney’s one very particular request: it has to be funny. And as any long-time ‘SNL’ viewer can tell you, that’s not always the case.
