"$#*! My Dad Says," which is based on a Twitter account where a son tweets funny things his dad says, is the highest-rated new show in the 18-49 demo. Now CBS has announced that another Twitter account, Shh Don't Tell Steve, is also being developed into a sitcom.

Amy Poehler is back on "Saturday Night Live" for its 36th season premiere episode. Watch above as she and cast member Kenan Thompson question musical guest Katy Perry about her first hit single "I Kissed a Girl."

"Saturday Night Live" airs Saturday nights at 11:30 p.m. Et on NBC. Will you be tuning in for Poehler's return?
