    Jane Lynch to host SNL in October.


    I predicted this in the Season 36 thread, but I think a lot of people saw this coming.


    I'm not sure what to make of this. I liked her in Season 1 of "Party Down" and on "Two and a Half Men," but "Glee" annoys me to no end.

    I don't watch Glee. Just not interested. But many of the students in my classes were in love with it.

    Following Sean Hayes and John Malkovich, Jane Lynch is the third Illinois State University alum to host SNL. Go Redbirds!


    This is not the season premiere (I'm 80% sure that's on September 25th), so I won't make this topic sticky for awhile.

    I think Jane Lynch was made to do this. Pretty sure she'll be great.

    Lynch is a Second City alum. We might not know her for sketch comedy, but she does have chops.

    I agree. She seems like she'd be up for anything, too.

    Steve recommended her for the role in 40 Year Old Virgin, I believe.

    I don't watch Glee and since I'll be watching NCIS and DVRing No Ordinary Family, I still won't be watching Glee.

    That's not to diss Jane Lynch. She is a great comedienne.

    He has a top ten hit with "Just The Way You Are," which for the record is not a Billy Joel cover.

    If you've ever heard Travie McCoy (of Gym Class Heroes) song "Billionaire," he does the hook.


    And he just got busted in Vegas for cocaine. But I believe I've mentioned that already.

    This has the makings to be good because of her comedy background, BUT SNL's writing has been awful of late and I bet it won't be as good as I hope.

    Since Patrick is still banned, I guess it falls on me to show you the Tuesday promo.

    Wow, so Joaquin Phoenix-during his "weird" period-was one of the "boyfriends" on that "New Boyfriends" sketch...
