Saturday Night Live Gets Scandal-ous!


No African American comediennes on Saturday Night Live? #ItsHandled, thanks to Olivia Pope, er,Kerry Washington’s upcoming hosting duties. Take that, Kenan Thompson!

“It’s just a tough part of the business,” Thompson said. “Like in auditions, they just never find one that are ready.” While we’re still waiting on SNL to add a few brown faces to the reoccurring cast, Washington hosting will hold us over (Janelle Monae will serve as the following week’s musical guest).

Brown girls rock. And, are funny. You’ll see Mr. Thompson when Washington takes the stage on November 2nd to host the NBC late night variety show. Eminem will be the musical guest, his sixth appearance, to gear up for his new album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2 on November 5th.

We’ll set our DVRs now.
