The big 'SNL' Tina Fey-centric return this past weekend certainly kicked things off on the right note, getting in a few shots at HBO's 'Girls' along the way with a sketch that featured Fey in the role of an Albanian refugee who contrasts the 'Girls' characters notoriously peppy lifestyles. 'Girls' creator Lena Dunham hasn't always been one to take parody in stride however, so what did Dunham have to say about the spoof?
We're not entirely sure when Vanessa Bayer and Cecily Strong's porn stars turned TV saleswomen become two of our favorite recurring 'SNL' characters, but bless 'em: we're so glad that these bizarre people get to grace our television a couple times a year. Of course, the only way to possibly make it better is to add Tina Fey, and wouldn't you know it, the legendary 'SNL' alum stepped in quite gamely in the 39th season premiere!
'SNL' has never been shy about taking on some of the most popular and controversial topics in the modern world, so it's about time it finally got around to making fun of HBO's divisive 'Girls.' In a fake promo for a new season of Lena Dunham's acclaimed show, guest host Tina Fey and the rest of the cast propose some changes to the program's dynamic that we can't help but wish would actually come to pass.
'Saturday Night Live' is back tonight with an all-new season, and what better way to celebrate than with Tina Fey returning to the stage that made her a household name? Fey hosts the season 39 premiere with musical guests Arcade Fire (and some new cast members to boot), which sounds like a dream episode -- but how was it? Read on for our breakdown of tonight's premiere.
Amid all the other major premieres this week and next, we'd nearly forgotten that 'SNL' will kick off its 39th season this coming Saturday, with alumni Tina Fey taking up hosting duties and Arcade Fire on the musical side. The first preview for Fey's return to the 'SNL' stage has arrived, but has everything already come unhooked?
Just when you thought 'SNL' couldn't have put that Lindsay Lohan rumor to bed any harder, the first three episodes of the 2013-14 season will blow the lid off '30 Rock' altogether. Alumni Tina Fey will host the September 28 'SNL' premiere, with the weeks that follow to include the likes of twerqueen Miley Cyrus, Bruce Willis, and even a returning Katy Perry!
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's success in hosting the 2013 Golden Globes this past January led to some fairly reaching rumors that the two would next be tapped for the Oscars, but at least one future ceremony has proven a no-brainer for the comedic duo. Sources report that Fey and Poehler have been "informally" invited back to host the 2014 ceremony, but will either return to the Golden Globe stage?
The other day we found out Tina Fey would return to TV in spirit by producing a new NBC sitcom about a woman returning to her roots, but it would seem FOX has done the '30 Rock' creator and star one better. The network has given another collegiate comedy under Fey's producing watch a straight-to-series order, but will the former 'SNL' writer have any role on the show itself?
It ranked among the sadder days in TV history when we finally said goodbye to Tina Fey's '30 Rock' after seven wonderful years, but our despair may already have been lifted. The former 'SNL' writer and '30 Rock' lead will return to NBC along with '30 Rock' co-showrunner Robert Carlock and writer-producer Colleen McGuinness for a brand-new female-centric workplace comedy, but how involved will Fey actually be?
