Report: Lindsay Lohan Has Been Asked to Host 'SNL's Premiere

Radar Online is reporting that Lindsay Lohan has been asked to host SNL. Their source says, "Saturday Night Live has approached Lindsay to host the show again, and they were talking about the season opener," adding, "She is definitely considering doing it. She loves the show and the people involved."

Lohan last hosted the show in 2012 with a hosting stint that was destroyed by critics just months before she went into rehab. If this rumor turns out to be accurate and Lohan does indeed host SNL this season, it'll be her fifth time as host, making her a member of the show's prestigious Five-Timers Club. With SNL  adding a new wave of cast members at the top of the season, there has to be a better host to introduce this new era of the show than Lohan.

    I'm going to choose to believe that this is not true and not spend any (more) time worrying that it might happen. They have to have more sense than that, right? Would the potential "train-wreck" bump in ratings really be worth it? Ugh. Well, like I said, I'm not going to worry about it.

    than that, right? Would the potential "train-wreck" bump in ratings
    really be worth it? Ugh. I mean, unless they went all in and had Miley as musical guest … well, like I said, I'm not going to worry about
    it.

      Unless Lorne has a previously unsuspected nostalgia for the more powdery aspects of the show's early years, it wouldn't make a lot of sense. But as you say, it's best not to worry about it, since the decision is out of our hands.

    This sounds fishy. Her last time hosting did not go well, and didn't even bump up the ratings. Seems like a rumor planted by Lindsay's people.

    She's got nice tits.
    Those are nice to look at on tv.

    • what?

      i disagree, everything about her is revolting.

  • quiteilliterate

    she's a terrible host that brings nothing to the table outside of ratings. it would be a piss poor way to start off this cast.
