In 1998, Alec Baldwin’s SNL Monologue Predicted That Jimmy Fallon Would Host the Show in 2011

News broke earlier today that Jimmy Fallon would be hosting SNL in December. As a few people have pointed out in my comments, the monologue from Alec Baldwin’s infamous Schweddy balls episode already broke this news 13 years ago. From the SNL Transcripts database

Air Date: December 12th, 1998

Alec Baldwin’s Monologue

Summary: After giving a lackluster performance, Alec Baldwin is visited by the Ghost of SNL Past (John Goodman), who offers a glimpse of Jimmy Fallon hosting the show in 2011 and still making fun of him.

Amazing synchronicity. If anyone can find a video of this, please send it to my submission box. (Note: The entire episode is available on Hulu Plus).
