Lindsay Lohan — who has hosted “Saturday Night Live” thrice, but not since 2006, and certainly not since she became the coke-addicted trainwreck she is now — is set to host the show again on March 3rd. Why? It’s hard to say: She has nothing to support (except a drug habit) and hasn’t had a hit movie basically since Mean Girls in 2004.
While Lohan claims that she approached Lorne Michaels about using “SNL” to rehabilitate her career — which is no doubt true — I seriously doubt that Michaels is doing this as some sort of favor because he’s feeling “fatherly.” He doesn’t care how Lohan wants to reposition her image. Michaels is a smart man, and he knows that good show or bad, Lindsay Lohan will bring ratings. People will watch. A live show with pop-culture’s biggest screw up? That’s an irresistible allure. It could be the first ever instance in which a host walks out during a live taping. Or better still, the first in which a host is fired halfway through a show.
Even if the show goes off without a hitch, the last 8 years of Lohan’s life should provide plenty of material.
