Well...I'd be willing to tune into the show for at least the last five or ten minutes now. Seriously, that show sucks now which is really unfortunate because of what it used to be. They need some new talent badly.

Wilco and ellen page will be one hell of a show.

can0083, I couldn't disagree with you more. Sure the 2000s have sucked but the last 2 seasons have been pretty great. There is fresh writing and a brand new cast. I used to think the same, but now this show is back

any predictions?

I think they'll play 2, cuz SNL is into that lately. I bet a new one then an old one. Maybe "What Light" then maybe some "Jesus etc." or something along those lines. Probably will keep it short.

They postponed their Friday show in Charleston because of this damn show, good for the band I guess but sucks for my impatience and desire to see Wilco this week.

I thought a show with Tina Fey would be funny, but man I was sooooo wrong. I think that the newtwork should go on strike till the writers get tallent. At the very least, they should fire Seth Myers and replace him with Seth Green as head writter.

As for Wilco - F-yea!

Impossible Germany and Late Greats.

SIDE WITH THE SEEEEDDDSS!!! Wilco and Ellen on SNL is going to rock! They gotta do one skit based on Jeff's back-and-forth banter with the audience. That stuff is usually hillarious - especially when he's solo.

they will play "Hate it Here" and "Impossible Germany".

Doubt you will get a What Light as the show will probably want to hear something a little up tempo.

Regardless, I will TIVO the show and fast forward to check the band out.

Wilco's 5 night stand here in Chicago was fantastic.

Catch them if you can, their live shows are the best they have ever been right now. I'll be tuning in for sure.

I'm surprised jambase didn't mention that wilco played a live webcast tonight on NPR at the 9:30 Club in D.C. I just finished listening to it...Great as usual. The show should be available on the NPR archive in the next couple days. Enjoy!
