Former President Bill Clinton could be a host of “Saturday Night Live” this season.
At least, that’s what the folks at NBC are hoping. A spokesman for NBC was unable to confirm the report (MSNBC is a joint venture between Microsoft and NBC).
TV Guide Online quotes anonymous sources saying that Clinton has been offered the gig if he wants it.
A decision is expected this week.
Meanwhile, Clinton is scheduled to appear Tuesday on the “Late Show With David Letterman,” a week after he addressed the Democratic National Convention in Boston. He also will be soldiering for his memoir, “My Life.” Since its release on June 22, the book has sold over 1.5 million copies.
Clinton last appeared on Letterman’s late-night show on Sept. 11, 2002, the first anniversary of the 2001 terrorist attacks.
