Miley Cyrus, hot off the heels of her Hannah Montana series finale will be hosting Saturday Night Live when the show airs on March 5.
It will be interesting to see if Miley appears on the spoofed out Miley Cyrus Show when she hosts, a sketch that has aired on several recent showing of the popular sketch comedy series. The Cyrus skit features relative newcomer to SNL Vanessa Bayer (pictured above with Miley Cyrus) as she plays the 18-year-old star as an “everything’s about me” type of persona. Saturday Night Live often likes to get the real stars involved in the spoofs of themselves, which could make for an interesting moment on the show.

With Jesse Eisenberg, star of The Social Network hosting SNL last night, it was the perfect time for Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook, to make his primetime debut and that’s exactly what happened.
Here’s a video of Eisenberg opening the show with the help of The Zuck (He appears part way through the opening monologue):
I personally enjoyed the “I invented poking” line Zuckerberg delivered, even if he did seem to feel a bit akward standing on the live stage of Saturday Night Live, but who could blame the guy, he’s not a trained actor.
Turns out Zuckerberg and Eisenberg don’t appear to be mortal enemy’s after all. What did you think about Facebook’s CEO appearing on Saturday Night Live?

Cookie Monster could be going the way of Betty White. A Facebook group has been setup and is gaining traction to bring the cookie friendly blue monster to late-night programming via Saturday Night Live.
If the campaign is successful Cookie Monster would become the first Sesame Street character to host SNL.
Cookie Monster has even created his own hilarious SNL audition tape, here it is:

Katy Perry may not be able to watch herself on Sesame Street after her appearance was banned because she “showed too much cleavage” but a “version” of that performance will be realized when the cast of Saturday Night Live spoofs her appearance.
Perry will also be on SNL during the spoof episode to perform her two newest hits “California Gurls” and “Teenage Dream.” The show will also feature Amy Poehler as host for the 36th season premiere.
Sesame Street producers announced this week that the Perry sequence they had taped would not air on New Year’s Eve because thousands of parents were outraged that she had so much cleavage showing. Perry was to perform a kid-friendly version of her song “Hot N Cold.”
PopCrunch points out the humor in the fact that Elmo seemed to love her “appearance” giving her a shout out during an ABC Googe Morning America appearance in which he said she could come back anytime she would like to perform again.
“We’ll have another one. Elmo loves Ms. Katy and we had a good time. So we’ll have another play date.”
Katy’s performance and the SNL spoof debut tonight, Sept. 25 @ 11:30 PM on NBC.

Saturday Night Live alum Rachel Dratch has announced the birth of her first child, a baby boy named Eli. Her son was born on August 24 according to People.
“She’s doing great and the baby’s doing great. She’s healthy and really happy!” an insider close to Rachel told the celebrity magazine.
David Letterman is never going to hear the end of his extortion case, is he? After Jay Leno cracked his own joke, SNL followed suit. Weekend Update anchor Seth Meyers had something to say; he said that it was a “stupid human trick.” I guess it’s funnier if you actually watch the show.
In spite of her boo boo, Jenny Slate is NOT being kicked out of Saturday Night Live. It is true the network’s execs were not happy and even called for a meeting about the incident, but for now, Jenny’s job is safe. I think she’ll just be in the limelight for it.
SNL newcomer Jenny Slate made a boo-boo in her first skit titled “Biker Chick Talk.” She inadvertently dropped the F-word: “You know what? You stood up for yourself, and I f—ing love you for that.” No comments from the producers of the show yet. But really now, I hope she doesn’t get crucified for this. Bigger slips have been made.
She does have a point. One, she is NOT fat. Two, no one would dare fire someone for being fat, would they? Anyhow, rumors that she left Saturday Night Live for being too fat have been circulating. She says, nah, I’m just too PHAT!
Last week, Saturday Night Live comedian Andy Samberg was involved in a skit where he parodied actor Mark Wahlberg. The actor has come out in the papers this week expressing how he didnâ€™t like the skit. To say that he was angry was quite accurate.
So it was surprising to see Wahlberg appear in SNL this weekend. I think heâ€™s finally learned his lesson that being combative will get you nowhere.
