Tina Fey doesn't want to take over 'SNL' after Lorne Michaels leaves

After recently announcing that she's not interested in hosting the Oscars (and telling a paparazzo to go f*** himself over the whole T-Swift debaccle), Tina Fey is back in the news, this time for telling the Huffington Post that she's not interested in succeeding Lorne Michaels at the helm of Saturday Night Live.

Oh, "SNL"? I mean, I feel like "SNL" is so defined by Lorne's taste and his sensibility. That's why any time people have tried to imitate the format and make their own version of it, you'll notice it never really quite happens. And I think that's because he is the center of that show, and I think it should just -- when he wants to stop, it should just stop.

Truthfully, we shouldn't be rooting for Fey to take the reins alone, anyway. We should be rooting that she'll be willing to share the duty with Amy Poehler so it will be just like Studio 60, except it'll run longer than one season and contain a hell of a lot less prescription drug abuse.
