Rejoice! Norm MacDonald Is Coming Back To Your Televison Sets!

Wednesday, February 9 by

Yes, you read that right. Former SNL cast member, weekend update anchor, Dirty Work star, and sitcom actor Norm MacDonald is going back behind the desk for a comedic half hour take on the world of sports in Comedy Central‘s “The Sports Show With Norm MacDonald.”

The show has been picked up for an eight episode run, and is slated to start airing in April. Norm junkies won’t have to wait that long to see him back in action, though. The comic’s hour long stand up special airs on Comedy Central March 12th. This is great news for fans of the comedian wishing  he’d return to the spotlight. MacDonald has kept a relatively low profile in the last few years, popping up on talk shows and in roasts here and there, and launching short lived sitcoms. This show seems far more in line with his sensibilities. Let’s just hope there’s room for crack whore jokes on a show about sports. (Variety)

    Maybe he can get Artie Lange to co-host with him from time to time. That would be awesome!
