Tina Fey, Bruce Springsteen Will Be on SNL Together in December
Donald Trump may have given Saturday Night Live its highest ratings in a long time when he was on a few weeks ago, but something tells me the media-proclaimed carnival barker may get a run for his money when Upper Darby’s Tina Fey and comedian Amy Poehler return to host in December.
NBC announced today that the duo will take over hosting duties on December 19th. If that’s not enough, another local hero (unless you ask this guy), Bruce Springsteen, will serve as musical guest.

This will be Fey’s fifth time hosting the show, and the first since 2013. The Fey-Poehler pair-up is the first time SNL has had two hosts since Mary Kate and Ashley Olson did it in 2004. Who knows what we can expect from the two. Maybe Poehler will reprise her Hillary Clinton persona in a skit with new Hill impersonator Kate McKinnon. Fey will surely join the show’s new Weekend Update anchors. Hey, maybe she and Amy will do it together! Whatever happens, it’s sure to be one of the best SNLs in a long time. And yes, Donald, even better than yours. Set your DVRs!
