    When I first became a fan after seeing “Phantom of the Opera”, I used to wish that he could host SNL so we could see more of his great personality and sense of humor. I am so thrilled and happy for him that he has become so popular lately. Go, Gerry!!!!

    I remember a while back he said he wasn’t interested in TV except South Park, I believe. I’m guessing he didn’t even dream of this. They have some great material to spoof that’s all I can say.

  6. i agree with all the above, it’s going to fun.

    i never watch SNL, but now i have a good reason too :)
