'Saturday Night Live': New premiere promos featuring host Amy Poehler

Ahead of Amy Poehler’s return to Saturday Night Live for this Saturday’s season premiere, she and Andy Samberg stepped out of the studio for a series of rooftop promos, notable for several things: (1) Kudos for the Parks and Recreation love, which I hope will be repeated in some way, shape, or form during every skit this Saturday.* (2) Samberg is definitely the Garth in this relationship. (3) Poehler hasn’t seen The Town yet, or she simply has a grudge against Blake Lively. Or she’s joking.

Is it possible to bring Schwing! or Excellent! back at this point? Not!

* In fact, wouldn’t it be great if Poehler’s costars from Pawnee, who tragically have been relegated to a mid-season replacement, joined her on Saturday night?

    Can’t wait to see Amy Poehler back on SNL.

    About 3 or 4 people on Gossip Girl can act & that’s being generous.

    • Pauline

      I would say two of them. Leighton and Ed.

    Thanks, NBC, for giving us at least some Amy. Not the Amy we want and deserve, of course. No, that Amy, on Parks & Rec, has to wait for mid-season while NBC gives its slot to that horrendous call center show.
    No wonder NBC is dead last.

      The people at NBC are such geniuses. Let’s put a show on hold that is finally generating appreciation and buzz. Great decision!

        I might have made this up, but I’m pretty sure they rearranged the production schedule because of her pregnancy, and that’s why the show got moved to mid-season. Don’t quote me on that though.

        yeah that is not true. parks actually started filming this season right away so they would have enough episodes in the bag to cover amy’s pregnancy. totally pushed to midseason in order to promote outsourced, that is the official reason.

  • Brianna
