Will Britney Spears three-peat on SNL this November?

Will she or won’t she? Rumor has it that Britney Spears will host of Saturday Night Live for the third time sometime in the days leading up to the December 2 release of her new album. Right now NBC reps are denying it, but rumor has it that Brit will make her triumphant return to SNL on November 22 as both host and musical guest.

According to whispers on the Snitch Circuit, Brit will host and perform as the musical guest on the November 22 episode of SNL.

The pop star has always been a good sport about mocking herself, as the rumored November guest spot would be Britney’s third hosting/performing gig on the NBC sketch comedy series.

Both NBC and Spears reps are kinda-sorta denying it. They don’t seem to be going as far as saying it’s categorically untrue, however.

Despite a report from fledgling blog celebuzz claiming that Britney Spears will be performing on Saturday Night Live sometime in November, the singer’s rep and a spokesman for the NBC show deny that Spears has been booked. Spears’ only TV appearances scheduled thus far is Good Morning America on Dec. 2 (which also happens to be her 27th birthday and the date her new album, Circus, hits stores) and an MTV documentary, tentatively titled “For the Record,” which is slated to air on Nov. 30. As for musical guests on SNL, American Idol winner David Cook will perform on Nov. 1 and new episodes are planned for Nov. 15 and Nov. 22.

She hasn’t been booked. In other words, maybe the details haven’t been hammered out yet? It would be an ingenious idea for both parties to make this happen if it isn’t. Saturday Night Live is enjoying it’s biggest ratings in years thanks to the election year, and Britney would get massive exposure for the release of her album, Circus. Saturday Night Live might be able to maintain some of their pre-election popularity by having the comeback queen of the year on again.

This November, I’m voting yes on the initiative to bring Britney Spears back to SNL on November 22nd.

    Good for her for seemingly getting her life straightened out. It was not long ago that she was a big mess and now it appears as though she’s found her way back to sanity.

    Yeah, I’d like to see her on SNL again. This week’s host is going to be Ben *barf* Affleck. Let’s see if he says something politically douchey and alienates a bunch of independent voters.

    She’s always funny on SNL. I hope this happens.
