You Betcha: Fey's “SNL” Return as Palin Likely

Comedian says she may reprise role when she hosts show in April

Tina Fey tells The Associated Press that she'll probably reprise her impression of Sarah Palin when she hosts "Saturday Night Live'' in April.

The comedian's portrayal of the former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential candidate generated some of the funniest, most watched episodes of the iconic show -- and viewers are likely thrilled at the chance to see Fey assume the pitbull-esque role again. 

Fey said this week that "it's inevitable that we'll try it, at least.'' She says "we'll see if it makes it to air.''

Officials at the NBC show aren't talking. "SNL'' generally doesn't discuss upcoming sketches because plans change often.

Fey's performances of Palin were an icon of the 2008 campaign and drew huge ratings for "SNL.'' They also helped earn her the title of 2008 AP Entertainer of the Year.

Fey also stars on the NBC sitcom "30 Rock.'' She says the "SNL'' hoopla was "the strangest thing that's ever happened to me.''
