Well that certainly didn't take long.

Yesterday we talked about a petition on Change.Org about having Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool to host Saturday Night Live. Fans have surely spoken as the petition has over 20,000 signatures (at press time it is 23,525)!

Similar petitions have worked in the past succeeding with Betty White to host the show, as well as Cookie Monster (well, partially, as he appeared to sing a Christmas song with real host Jeff Bridges), but at least Cookie went out of his way to audition for the spot.

So what happens now exactly? Well that's certainly up to Lorne Michaels. How would a show like this actually work? It would be a ratings wonder for sure, especially for the kids who possibly couldn't see the movie due to its R-rating. It could be toned down enough for TV, but still risque enough to work.

Then again, it is live TV after all.
