Gilly to Host SNL Christmas Special

The Washington Post is reporting that Kristen Wiig's recurring character Gilly will host the SNL Christmas Special that airs December 17. Acknowledging Gilly's limited vocabulary, Wiig said "That can be a tough one to work around. There's going to be no long monologue. Maybe her five-word vocabulary will stretch to 10 or 11."
The 2010 Oscar hosts Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin will also make appearances on the show with Baldwin introducing his holiday classic "NPR's Delicious Dish - Scweddy Balls" while Martin will introduce "A Holiday Wish".


Even though I'm not Gilly's biggest fan, an SNL Christmas special seems like it could be great. As Wiig says, SNL has been on for so long that there's a lot of great Christmas material there.

Are you excited at the prospect of a Gilly-hosted Christmas special?
