Fey Spoofs Palin again on 'SNL'
When Tina Fey returned to her roots at "SNL" to portray GOP vice-presidential hopeful Sarah Palin, the actress won praise for her spot-on impersonation -- with the Alaska governor herself calling the spoof "hilarious."
This past weekend, Fey returned to NBC's "Saturday Night Live" to portray Sarah Palin opposite Amy Poehler's Katie Couric in a skit lampooning the CBS anchor's recent sit-down with the VP candidate, again drawing high ratings and big net replay for the sketch.
Fey, whose producing, acting and writing skills are seen in the Emmy-winning comedy series "30 Rock," is no longer a full-time cast member of the sketch comedy show. Her recent portrayals of Palin have been a treat for fans of "SNL." Poehler has announced that this will be her last season on "SNL."
