Tina Fey will return to "Saturday Night Live" on Sept. 28 to host its Season 39 premiere, NBC announced Monday. Fey, the former head writer and "Weekend Update" anchor, already has hosted three times since leaving the show in 2006. Arcade Fire will makes its fourth appearance as musical guest the same night.

*1/2 (out of four) "The Wack Album" represents the Lonely Island's first full-length album since the comedy trio (consisting of Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer) ceased contributions to "Saturday Night Live.

**1/2 (out of four) Celeste (co-writer Rashida Jones) and Jesse (Andy Samberg) both put their fingertips on a tiny squeeze bottle of lip balm. They rub up and down and make sexual noises. After a little while, they squeeze the tube. You know what happens next. This is the epitome of an inside joke, the kind of thing that filters through the bloodstream of a relationship. These two still have no trouble laughing together. Yet for some reason the longtime sweethearts, who have been married for six years but separated six...

Yes, Andy Samberg shares a similar name and kinda similar face with Adam Sandler. Yet perhaps the main reason Samberg was the obvious choice to play Sandler's character's child in "That's My Boy" is that, just like a devoted son who stands by his dad, Samberg has admired and supported his fellow "Saturday Night Live" alum despite all the Razzie nominations and a stream of movies that are lucky to receive even one-star reviews.
