On Saturday night’s episode of Saturday Night Live, NBC announced in an on-air promo that Lindsay Lohan would be taking on the hosting duties. Her spot is set for March 3, 2012, as she presumably tries to make a comeback after all of her troubles.
Does that mean Lindsay is finally getting her life back on track? It’s about time!
After the promo aired, Lindsay took to her official Twitter page to say, “SNL! I love @NBC !!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Lindsay has already hosted the show three times previously. She hosted on May 1, 2004, May 21, 2005 and April 15, 2006 — so this will mark her fourth hosting appearance. She will be joined by musical guest, Jack White.
NBC’s official Twitter account confirmed the news. They tweeted, “That’s right: March 3rd, @lindsaylohan with musical guest Jack White!! See you then!”
According to TMZ, Lindsay was dying to do the show again so that she can work on kickstarting her comeback. Reportedly, she contacted the show’s executive producer, Lorne Michaels, directly to work something out with him.
Spies close to Lindsay say that she has always felt that he was like a father-figure to her over the years. In addition, she has always enjoyed doing the show, but she was merely waiting for the right time to make her return. It’s been six years since she last hosted! Are you looking forward to seeing Lindsay host the show again? What exactly is she promoting this time around?
