Poehler joined the show in the early 2000s, not the early 1990s, as the two “Wayne’s World”-influenced promos in the video below suggest. Still, we like a good “Schwing!” reference as much as the next person, so thanks, Andy Samberg.
The season premiere of “SNL” is Saturday, Sept. 25, and Katy Perry will be the musical guest. We’ll have to wait a little longer to see Poehler in her NBC day job; “Parks and Recreation” is scheduled for a midseason premiere.
Take a look at the promo spots:
