After Britney Spears released her autobiography, where she claimed that Justin Timberlake convinced her to abort their baby, he has been persona non grata by her friends.

Because of that, we haven’t heard much from him since then. And now it looks like he is coming out of hiding.

Today, Saturday Night Live announced that he will be the musical guest on January 27th.

Are we ready to forgive him like most did after the Janet Jackson fiasco? We shall see.

Last year, Saturday Night Live cleaned house. This year, none of the Not Ready for Primetime Players left the NBC variety show. In fact, they are getting a new member, and her name is Chloe Troast.

She will be visited by an old cast member for the season premiere on October 14th. That is because Pete Davidson, who will be promoting his standup tour, is hosting, and Ice Spice is the musical guest. The following week, Bad Bunny will do both.

The cast of season 49 are Michael Longfellow, Sarah Sherman, Punkie Johnson, Mikey Day, Ego Nwodim, Heidi Gardner, Colin Jost, Molly Kearney, Andrew Dismukes, James Austin Johnson, Marcello Hernandez, Michael Che, Bowen Yang, Cecily Strong, Kenan Thompson, Chloe Fineman, Devon Walker, and Troast.


Could Tina Fey take over Saturday Night Live?

Lorne Michael is 78 years old, and he has hinted that he plans on retiring at the end of the show’s 50th season in 2025.

So NBC has two options. They can cancel the show, or they can try it out with a new Executive Producer. And if they go with the latter option, Page Six is reporting that Tina Fey is being courted for the job.

“I would be surprised if it wasn’t her,” a source said. “Seth Meyers has his own show. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg won’t come here. Judd Apatow passed [on the job] years ago. Amy Poehler has her own stuff. Bill Hader is directing a movie. Kate McKinnon is too hot.”

Personally, I think she would be the best choice because she has an eye for talent. And that is something Michaels hasn’t had in a really long time. Plus, she is funny. Does the sketch series even remember funny?


Michael Che’s cruel April Fool’s Day joke on Colin Jost

Not only do Michael Che and Colin Jost like to tell jokes on Saturday Night Live, but they also like to play jokes on each other. Since the latest episode aired on April Fool’s Day, Che came up with the perfect way to prank his Weekend Update co-anchor.

Che told the audience not to laugh at Jost’s jokes. And they didn’t. However, someone finally yelled out, “You stink!”

Jost was totally defeated at that moment, so Che let him on the joke. He was thinking, “Am I not mic’ed? And then I was like, ‘Oh, I just suck.'”

He didn’t stop there, then told Che, “That is the meanest thing you’ve ever done to me. I’m covered in sweat.”

Don’t feel too bad for Jost. Remember, he gets to go home and get consoled by Scarlett Johansson.

And my hat is off to Che because that was awesome! I can’t wait to see Jost gets him back. Because you know he will.


Cecily Strong is the latest person to leave SNL

Saturday Night Live went several seasons without losing any Not Ready for Primetime Players, but before this season started, they lost more than their fair share.

Kate McKinnon, Aidy Bryant, Kyle Mooney, Pete Davidson, Alex Moffat, Melissa Villaseñor, Aristotle Athari, and Chris Redd all said their goodbyes before September. And yesterday, they lost one more. Cecily Strong announced that she will not be part of the variety show in 2023.

“My heart is bursting. I have a lot of big huge life changing love to unpack, so this is what I can say tonight 💙,” she said. “I’m sorry I’ve been a little quiet about it publicly. I didn’t want the extra pressure on something already so emotional for me. And I’m so grateful I got to have these wonderful past six shows to help me ease into it and get to meet and laugh and probably overly hug Molly, Marcello, Devon, and Michael who I think are not only brilliantly funny but really great humans. I am ready to go, but I’ll always know home is here. I’ve had the time of my life working with the greatest people on earth.”

Strong had been on SNL for 11 seasons. Who do you think will be next?
