Think you’re funny enough to be the next Tina Fey or Darrell Hammond? Can you read cue cards well? Like working late hours? Then you should try to earn a slot on NBC’s next reality show. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the network is developing a reality competition around Saturday Night Live’s casting process, in which competitors would be eliminated one by one, with the winner earning a slot as a featured player on SNL. Think of it as a cross between Last Comic Standing and The Apprentice, with SNL executive producer Lorne Michaels as The Donald. (Michaels, of course, pretended to fire Jimmy Fallon from the show last spring during an Apprentice parody sketch.) Look for the show to launch next summer.
