Andy Samberg - Visits a cancer patient on Oprah!

Jackie was forced to leave college after being diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. Gilda's Club—a cancer support network formed in the honor of Saturday Night Live cast member Gilda Radner, who died of ovarian cancer in 1989—made one of her dreams come true with tickets to a taping of Saturday Night Live with host Justin Timberlake.

Still, Oprah and some very special friends from Saturday Night Live wanted to do more—and a secret plan was hatched. The first step: Get Jackie to Chicago. Jackie's shocked when Oprah reads Peggy's letter and invites her onstage.

Oprah asks how Jackie's feeling. "I'm feeling good," Jackie says. "It's easy when it's easy to laugh. I have a lot of fun friends at school that help and best friends and family."

The cast of Saturday Night Live also makes Jackie laugh, so Oprah has cast members Andy Samberg, Kristen Wiig and Jason Sudeikis standing by with a message.

They're checking in from New York City...or are they? "We're Skyping from here," Andy says.

Andy, Kristen and Jason surprise Jackie onstage with more good news. "Aside from coming to the show, we're going to have you come hang out with us during the week while we rehearse and meet our host, Justin Timberlake," Andy says.

Jackie's left nearly speechless. "Oh my!" she says.

Thanks so much for posting this, I forgot to see this episode! And also thanks Nicole for link. We all know that unfortunately Megan Fox is hosting the season premiere with U2 being the musical guest, but after that its Ryan Reynolds and Lady Gaga, then Drew Barrymore and Regina Spektor, and Gerard Butler and Shakira.. And how do I know? Well I found this:

And last but not least Casey Wilson is denying allegations that she was fired from SNL from being too "fat".,,20303828,00.html?xid=rss-fullcontent

Thanks for all the great links and info ladies! Also, Tina Fey and J.T. both won two Emmy's for SNL Saturday night, so here's hoping they, esp. the Lonely Island, ring them in on the 20th! (Go, Motherlover!!!!) said...

Of course, the writer is totally fair.
