Aye, Yay! Watch Sofia Vergara's SNL Promos (VIDEO)

Saturday Night Live returns from its three-week hiatus this Saturday, with Modern Family's Sofia Vergara taking over the hosting duties (One Direction, who I've never heard of, is the musical guest). As you may remember, Vergara made our SNL hosting wishlist back in the fall. And here now are her promos, in which she teams up with Jason Sudeikis to make many—too many, even!—jokes about her accent.

I'm honestly not sure what to expect out of this weekend's show. I think Vergara's got a lot of potential, but I'm worried the SNL writing gang won't give her much to work with—here's hoping we get to see her play a few characters who don't just rely on the "sexy foreign lady" thing.

Either way, I am excited to see what new girl Kate McKinnon can do.


Are you a Sofia Vergara fan? How do you think she'll do?

Unfunny promo from a show which can't find funny unless Timberlake or Baldwin hosts. What a waste of time for Vergara, hilarious on Modern Family, as well as a beyond worthy part of the under-appreciated Knights of Prosperity.

One Direction is this UK boy band Simon Cowell created that's all the rage. I do think there's tons of potential for Vegara but it's true the writers have blown it with guests that have that potential.

1) This is what's wrong with NBC - you want your LOYAL viewers to sit through a 30-second non-targeted ad just so they can watch 2 minutes of advertising for your program.



2) I am not feeling the writing or direction on those promos, it gives me concern. There's something so off about them, and they certainly don't bode well for the show to come.

I love that lady, she's pretty funny IMO. I suppose just putting her in a bunch of sexy foreign lady roles could happen, but I think they'll see her potential and put her in more substantial roles?
