Lorne Michaels: Please Sign Justin Timberlake to SNL

Justin Timberlake is set to host Saturday Night Live for the third time this week, and all I can think of is how much I wish he was on the show every week.

SNL has felt so flat since the Sarah Palin/Tina Fey high of last year, Justin could be just what the show needs. It would instantly become Must See TV.

All SNL creator Lorne Michaels needs to do is make Justin an offer he can't refuse...

Justin even told USA Today, "I would go as far to say if I didn't have a career that I felt so extremely lucky to have, I would see if I could get cast on the show."

I'll keep my fingers crossed.

After all, Lorne has scary powers of persuasion. He memorably offered the Beatles $3,000 to reunite on SNL. And legend has it that Paul McCartney and John Lennon saw the broadcast and considered rushing down to the studio to perform.

Somehow, I think Justin would want a little more than that.
