Saturday Night Live will air a two-hour tribute to its female cast members Nov. 1. “The Women of SNL” special will include clips (duh), but also new material from Rachel Dratch, Nora Dunn, Tina Fey, Ana Gasteyer, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Laraine Newman, Cheri Oteri, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Molly Shannon, and Kristen Wiig. Um, Jane Curtin and Julia Sweeney, call your agents!
This special is obviously a follow-up to last year’s hit Betty White episode, and who knows? Maybe the sustained interest in SNL’s female performers will lead to there being more of them.
I’m hoping there’s an opportunity for Fey and Poehler to speak their “twin language”:
