Q: Is there any sketch or subject that SNL ran by you that you didn't want to do or something you didn't want to participate in on the show? Or is everything fair game?

A: I haven't any idea what I'm going to be doing. All I know is I have veto power if it's something I really don't want to do. They promised me I wouldn't have to do any nudity. And I won't do any dope jokes. I don't like dope jokes. I don't think dope is a joke. And so that's about the only no that I would, let's say, resist doing.

Q: Next up, you're doing a sitcom for TV Land, Hot in Cleveland. How's that going?

A: Oh, this is a delight. Jane Leeves and Wendy Malick and Valerie Bertinelli are the three stars of the show. And their chemistry together is wonderful. Their characters have come to Cleveland, and they're renting a house because they're going to stay there for a while. I have been housekeeper at that house for 50 years, and they inherit me along with the house. And of course I'm a pain in the neck.

The pilot got picked up so fast that it blew all our minds. We actually start working on that series the day I get back from Saturday Night Live. So it's a quick turnaround, but I think it's going to be great fun.
