Saturday Night Live back on 2/23


NBC’s "Saturday Night Live," the only late-night show completely shelved by the writers’ strike, is planning a Feb. 23 return, according to an AP story.

"It’s been a long dry spell without `Saturday Night Live’ on the air," Rick Ludwin, head of late-night entertainment at NBC, told AP. "They’ve been sitting on the sidelines watching all this happening in politics and the primaries. SNL thrives during an election year and they can’t wait to get back on."
