A social media movement to encourage Saturday Night Live (SNL) to invite CNN’s Wolf Blitzer to host the show is gaining momentum. From less than 200 fans yesterday to over 600 today, Facebook page “Wolf Blitzer should host SNL” is beginning to make an impact as supporters share ideas for skits and call on SNL creator Lorne Michaels to extend an invitation to the Wolf-man.
Though never a host, Blitzer is no stranger to NBC’s Saturday evening happy hour. He’s been spoofed by the show’s comedic cast several times in the past and just last week, Jason Sudeikis channeled his inner Wolf to poke fun at the veteran cable newser and his show “The Situation Room.” (video below)
So Lorne, listen up! Can you hear the cry of the Wolf?
