Storyline

Emmy Award winner and former head writer Tina Fey hosts SNL. This marks the first new show since the three-month Hollywood Writers' Strike as well as the first time Fey has hosted since she left SNL to create, executive produce and star in her award winning comedy "30 Rock." Featured sketches include Hillary Clinton (Amy Poehler) squaring off against Barack Obama (Fred Armisen) in the Democratic Debate; a Monologue with Tina learning how to act like a performer from comedic legend Steve Martin; Governor Mike Huckabee stopping by Weekend Update for a little too long; and an advertisement for Hot Air Balloon rides (Kristen Wiig). (Note: edited episode.) Written by Anonymous
