SNL Host News: Jane Lynch (Glee) to host SNL next



According to Movie Line, GLEE star and Emmy nominated actor Jane Lynch will be hosting the October 9 edition of "Saturday Night Live" (premiere of the show's 36th season).

Lynch has sketch comedy experience and has appeared at Second City in the past.

Lynch was recently nominated for the Emmy Award for Supporting Actress in a Comedy. The trophy will be awarded on August 29. Lynch will return to play Sue Sylvester when GLEE begins its second season on September 21.

Television's most award-winning new series, GLEE was recently honored with 19 Emmy nominations; a Peabody Award; a Golden Globe for Best Television Series, Comedy or Musical; a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series; and a People's Choice Award for Favorite New TV Comedy. The music from GLEE is an international sensation with "Glee: The Music, Volume 1" and "Glee: The Music, Volume 2" topping charts in Australia, the U.K., New Zealand, Ireland and Canada. In the U.S., over 4.5 million songs have been downloaded, and both albums have been certified Gold for sales in excess of 500,000 units.



GLEE follows an optimistic teacher who - against all odds and a malicious cheerleading coach - inspires McKinley High's Glee Club to conquer the world one singing competition at a time. GLEE stars Dianna Agron, Chris Colfer, Jessalyn Gilsig, Jane Lynch, Jayma Mays, Kevin McHale, Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Matthew Morrison, Amber Riley, Mark Salling and Jenna Ushkowitz.

GLEE is produced by Ryan Murphy Television in association with 20th Century Fox Television. Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan are co-creators of the series. Murphy, Falchuk and Dante di Loreto serve as executive producers, while Ian Brennan serves as co-executive producer

I'm so happy about this. I wonder if any other glee castmembers will get to host, like cory or lea.

The hell? I sent this..?

Youreanartard,

You're Faith, right? I got one email from Amy about this and a couple of comments from an Anony. Were you the Anony? I just added your name credit as Faith in the post, and I can also include a link to your site or your page (blog, Youtube, Twitter, etc.) with each scoop you send us. Thanks!

Kylie said...

I'm the Anony that commented on it and my name is Kylie. :( I didn't get credited for it

youreanartard said...

We should all get some credit. Yes, this is Faith:D. We all sent something, so why not get our names on it?

Anonymous said...

I don't think that people should get credited for anything. If you see that it's yours then just feel good about yourself. There's less confusion that way. I sent some stuff via commenting and it got posted then I felt good about myself :).

I can't wait to see Jane Lynch host! It's gonna be great! I'm a gleek and I love SNL so this is very exciting for me.

My wish list to host: Justin Timberlake, Will Farrell, Jason Segel, Neil Patrick Harris, Steve Carell, Zachay Levi, Seth Rogan, Michael Cera, Ben Affleck, Paul Rudd, Ellen Page, Jonah Hill and Tracy Morgan.

youreanartard said...

Well that's what you think. Everyone else is different. People deserve the credit they saw. And all of those people have hosted.

The Animation Empire said...

Okay, I also added Kylie. Please include your name in the comments if you want credit with your name (and not just "Anony"). We also do links to your page if you have one and want a link.

...

Anony, that was funny when I read "gleek." It's obvious, but I hadn't heard that one before. =^)


Faith, you're absolutely right! We did a post a bit back about which SNL alumni should host who hasn't yet. I think that's my dream list.

Thanks!

Kylie said...

Not ALL of those people hosted before. Maybe she ment to say she wanted those people to host season 36 whether they hosted before or not. That would be my wish list too :D

btw thanks for adding me. it would have been ok if you didn't. I didn't really mind :)

youreanartard said...

Well I didn't say EVERY SINGLE PEROSN. I don't really care either. I only watch NSL because
Andy's on it. There's too much Kisten Wiig and Will Forte.

Because I already do unlike you.

Why are we arguing? so stupid!!! Haha! I like coming to this blog to see Andy news but instead I'm waisting my time arguing with a fellow fan! no hard feelings Faith?

TheKinkySurgeon said...

with all the unnecassary drama going on here, don't forget how exciting it is that jane lynch is hosting snl :)
I'd like to have all new hosts this season, of course it's always nice to have snl alumns back but it also kind of gets old after a while. (the only one I want to see is jimmy fallon, because he's never hosted after he was on the cast.

youreanartard said...

Eh, sure whatever.

The Animation Empire said...

Kinky Surgeon,

Jimmy Fallon would be a great host! Plus Andy does like the only great Jimmy Fallon impression, so it would be hilarious if they did like Celebrity Jeopardy or something and played each other!
