As if a gift from the gods of television, it was just announced that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will be returning to Saturday Night Live to host the annual holiday episode on Saturday, December 19th. The beloved comic duo (who, sadly, won’t be hosting the Golden Globes this year) have Sisters coming out the previous day. You know, something other than Star Wars is being released in December, and I’m sure Fey and Poehler wouldn’t have it any other way.

SNL tweeted the above picture to make the announcement. It wouldn’t be horrible if they took over the writer’s room as well as hosted, am I right? Lorne Michaels should at least have the thoughtfulness to allow Fey and Poehler to kick Colin Jost and Michael Che off the Weekend Update desk to show them how it’s really done.
