Sir Charles To Dunk Saturday Night Live


The surprising progress made during this weekend's James Franco-hosted SNL will likely not stick,because the show has invited NBA retiree and admittedly out-of-shape sports commentator Charles Barkley to headline its first show after the winter break. His January 9 episode alongside Alicia Keys will mark the star's first time back in Studio 8H since 1993, when Barkley hosted with musical guest Nirvana. Will he poke fun at his friend Tiger Woods? Probably not. Will he suffer through Kenan Thompson's impersonation of him? Sure. Will SNL ever learn to not kick off the new year with a sports star host? Unlikely. [Associated Content]
