 Palin Set to Appear on SNL

PostSubject: Palin Set to Appear on SNL   Fri Oct 17, 2008 12:55 pm

I am looking forward to seeing her in SNL. Tina does an awesome job as Sarah Palin. I don't normally watch SNL but I will for this. I enjoyed Hilary and some other's over the years. I am sure this will be funny too.

Palin Set to Appear on SNL

Sarah Palin will get a chance to poke fun at herself -- and meet her doppelganger, Tina Fey -- in her first appearance on the comedy sketch show, "Saturday Night Live."

Sarah Palin is stepping into the lion's den, so to speak, when she makes her first appearance on Saturday Night Live this weekend.

Actor Josh Brolin, who plays President Bush in Oliver Stone's new movie, "W", will host Saturday's episode.

John McCain's campaign confirmed Palin's appearance to FOX News. But spokeswoman Jill Hazelbaker offered no details about what the Alaska governor will say or do.

The entertainment show's ratings has surged this season largely thanks to Tina Fey's wicked and dead-on impersonation of Palin. The hike in ratings has led to the show adding a half-hour program Thursday nights devoted to mocking the candidates.

Last week, Palin said she would love to be on the show with Fey and show her how she is really done.

"I love her," she said. "She's hot and she's so talented and it would be fun to either imitate her or keep on giving her more material and keep her in business."

Keeping her in business though is not what Fey wants. The comedian told TV Guide that she won't keep up her much acclaimed role as Palin if she becomes vice president -- much to the chagrin of political comedy fans.

"If she wins, I'm done. I can't do that for four years," Fey told the magazine. "And by 'I'm done,' I mean I'm leaving Earth."

Fey has mastered Palin's folksiness while targeting the perception that she is all style and no substance.

McCain called Fey a "tremendous talent" during an appearance Thursday night on CBS' Late Show with David Letterman and predicted that Palin's appearance will probably draw a bigger audience than his debate with Barack Obama..

"Tina Fey does a great job," he said. "Sarah Palin enjoys it. She understands it's part of what politics is all about."

I take it you are referring to all Candidates? Not just Palin, correct? Because Hilary, Obama, McCain and other's have been on the show, some more more than once!

Obama was scheduled to appear as recently as
last months Season Premier.

Obama canceled plans to appear on the Season Premiere of Saturday Night Live, following Hurricane Ike, saying it would be inappropriate to make jokes during such a crisis.

He also appeared on SNL in November 2007.

Below (Next message) are a couple of articles related to some of the Candidates Appearances on SNL.
Sarah Palin is just following in their footsteps.

Since Tina Fey began portraying Palin their ratings have skyrocketed. Ratings are expected to be huge tonight

Obama cancels Saturday Night Live Season Premiere Appearance Because of Hurricane.

Lynn Sweet
on September 13, 2008

WASHINGTON--With a deadly hurricane aimed at Texas, Barack Obama cancelled his appearance on Saturday Night Live this evening, spokesman Jen Psaki in a statement.
"In the light of the unfolding crisis in Texas, Senator Obama has decided it is no longer appropriate to appear on Saturday Night Live tomorrow evening," she said.



Obama Plays Convincing Obama in a Skit Mocking Clinton

“Saturday Night Live” has relentlessly mocked Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton and this weekend allowed Senator Barack Obama, a chief rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, to join in the skewering.

The comedy show portrayed Mrs. Clinton dressed as a bride at a Halloween party, while the actors playing Bill Clinton and some of the other Democratic candidates called her a witch. All the candidates were lampooned except Mr. Obama, extending what some rival campaigns privately complain is a glut of positive news coverage.

The Obama campaign said yesterday that they were allowed to “tweak” the script, but the extent of such tweaks was not clear. A spokesman for the show said Mr. Obama “had as much input as any guest or host would have on the material but it was written by us, not them.” The spokesman said Mr. Obama had declined to do a prepared sketch about the fact that he and Vice President Dick Cheney are cousins.

The show’s host was Brian Williams, the anchor of the “NBC Nightly News,” and there was considerable preshow discussion about whether his appearance would compromise his journalistic integrity. But the postshow coverage has centered on Mr. Obama, whose appearance was a surprise and drew enormous applause from the studio audience.

In the opening skit, Bill and Hillary Clinton, played by Darrell Hammond and Amy Poehler, were holding a Halloween party (and bickered constantly, with “Mrs. Clinton” laughing at inappropriate moments). As Mr. Clinton, Mr. Hammond was dressed up as Mystery, from the VH1 reality show “The Pickup Artist.” As Mrs. Clinton, Ms. Poehler wore a white bridal gown, but other characters called it a witch’s outfit.

The guests at the Clintons’ party were all actors spoofing the other Democratic presidential candidates. A final guest, tall and slim, arrived wearing an Obama mask. When he took off the mask, it was the real Mr. Obama.

“Nice to see you, Barack,” the Senator Clinton character said. “So, you dressed as yourself?”

“You know, Hillary, I have nothing to hide,” Mr. Obama said. “I enjoy being myself. I’m not going to change who I am just because it’s Halloween.”

She replied through clenched teeth, “That’s, that’s great.”

With a smile, Mr. Obama told her, “And may I say, you make a lovely bride.”

Whereupon the Bill Clinton character offered, “She’s a witch.”

Mr. Obama then introduced the show, with the trademark “Live, from New York, it’s Saturday Night!” He did not appear again.

Mr. Williams was not in the sketch, though he had a later role in another campaign segment in which he made trenchant reference to the news media’s supposed anointment of Mrs. Clinton as the nominee.

Mr. Obama’s lines were hardly more pointed than those he has uttered on the campaign trail and in fact echoed his refrain that he is more genuine than Mrs. Clinton is. Just that morning, Mr. Obama had told an audience in Spartanburg, S.C., that she was running a “textbook” campaign that “encourages vague, calculated answers to suit the politics of the moment, instead of clear, consistent principles.”

The skit was quickly dissected on the Internet, with many bloggers applauding its wit but some suggesting that it had been too gentle on Mr. Obama.

Mrs. Clinton’s campaign had no comment.

Lorne Michaels, the creator and producer of “Saturday Night Live,” was not available for comment, but a spokesman said the show was “always an equal opportunity offender.” He added that Mrs. Clinton had been booked for the season premiere on Sept. 29, at her request, but had to pull out. She is expected to appear in the future, he said. Her campaign also had no comment about that.

Jim Rutenberg and Jeff Zeleny contributed reporting.

Clinton does ‘SNL’ but doesn’t get endorsement

Skit lampoons alleged media bias in favor of Obama;

Sun., March. 2, 2008

NEW YORK - Hillary Rodham Clinton took a break from the campaign trail to thank “Saturday Night Live” for giving her candidacy a boost — although she failed to get an official endorsement from the show.

Clinton’s campaign has gotten a good deal of mileage out of an “SNL” sketch from a week ago in which reporters fawned over her rival, Barack Obama.

Clinton brought up the sketch during last Tuesday’s debate between the two candidates, and the campaign has encouraged supporters and voters to watch it on NBC’s Web site.

This weekend’s episode opened with a similar sketch recreating Tuesday’s debate. It portrayed NBC anchors Brian Williams and Tim Russert asking Clinton, played by Amy Poehler, tough questions while serving softballs to Obama.

Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

PostSubject: Palin on 'SNL' Earns Show Its Highest Ratings in 14 Years   Mon Oct 20, 2008 1:28 am

Well, it was expected that the ratings would be pretty
good having Sarah Palin in Person on SNL Saturday.
Ratings were already up with Fey impersonating her.
But the ratings Saturday were the highest SNL has
had in 14 years! All I can say is WOW!!

Palin on 'SNL' Earns Show
Its Highest Ratings in 14 Years

Vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin shares a
laugh as "Saturday Night Live" regulars take a
stab at mocking her

The entertainment summit of the season --
Sarah Palin and her impersonator, Tina Fey --
earned "Saturday Night Live" its best ratings in 14 years.

But if you blinked, you might have missed it.

Fey was answering questions at a news conference,
something Palin hasn't done yet as the Republican vice presidential nominee,
when Palin walked on the stage.
Fey beat a hasty retreat in the opening segment,
walking past the real Palin with a barely perceptible nod.

If anyone was hoping for a side-by-side photo of the
identically dressed women, they were out of luck.

Palin's guest shot, widely anticipated since Fey began
imitating her a month ago, led "Saturday Night Live"
to its highest mark in overnight Nielsen Media Research
ratings since March 1994, when assaulted skater Nancy Kerrigan was guest host.

Although a complete audience estimate for the rest
of the country won't be available until later in the week,
it is likely to be around 14 million.

[b]For the first half-hour, when Palin first came
out, the audience was about 17 million.[/
That's pretty impressive for a TV program around midnight.
The week before, only two other shows in prime time had a bigger audience, Nielsen said.

Her running mate, John McCain, watched clips of the broadcast on Sunday.

"Did you catch Sarah Palin on 'SNL'?"
he asked a crowd in Toledo, Ohio.
"She did a great job."

In the show's opening, Fey's Palin said at a news
conference: "First off, I just want to say
how excited I am to be in front of both
the liberal elite media, as well as
the liberal regular media.
I am looking forward to a portion of
your questions."

Moments later, the camera cut away to the real
Palin watching a television monitor alongside
the show's executive producer, Lorne Michaels.

Palin stood quietly as Fey's "30 Rock" co-star
Alec Baldwin came by, mistook Palin for Fey
and pleaded with Michaels not to let the actor go
onstage with the governor.

"This is the most important election in our nation's
history and you want her, our Tina, to go out there
and stand with that horrible woman?" Baldwin said.

When Michaels introduced him to Palin, Baldwin
feigned embarrassment and replied:
"I see. Forgive me. I feel I must say this:
You are way hotter in person."

Palin got even, saying: "Thank you, and I must say,
your brother Stephen is my favorite Baldwin brother."
Stephen Baldwin is a born-again Christian who
attended the Republican national convention in 2004.

Alec Baldwin ushered her onstage past Fey,
where Palin delivered the show's traditional opening:
"Live from New York, it's Saturday night."

Palin later appeared alongside Seth Meyers on
"Weekend Update," declining to perform a rap song
that had been written for her. Amy Poehler "filled in"
for Palin as actors dressed as Eskimos, Palin's husband,
Todd, and a moose danced across the stage.

"All the mavericks in the house, put your hands up,
" Poehler rapped, as a bopping Palin followed the
instructions. "All the plumbers in the house,
pull your pants up."

Palin's appearance had been confirmed by the
McCain campaign a day earlier. "Saturday Night Live"
had been reluctant to do so, feeling embarrassed
when it announced Barack Obama would show up
for the season's first show and he canceled hours
ahead of time, but the early word created heavy

Michaels owes Palin a debt of gratitude.
"Saturday Night Live" so far this season
has been up 76 percent over last year at this time

Nielsen said.

Even beyond that, the Fey skits have gone viral
over the Internet, drawing more attention to the
show. One study last week said only one-third
of people who had seen Fey's impersonations
did so on live TV; the rest saw them on DVRs
or on their computers.
