She's back and wearing leather. Guest host Tina Fey reprised her iconic impression of Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live last night. Fey appeared as Palin in a sketch introducing a mock "Sarah Palin Network," satirizing Palin's entry into media. Palin recently launched Real American Stories on Fox News Channel and will soon begin production on Sarah Palin's Alaska, an eight-part series for TLC.

Appearing as Palin in a leather jacket with an American flag pin, Fey introduced a lineup of shows like Tea Party Wheel of Fortune (the puzzle read "Obamar is a terrist"), Are You Smarter than a Half-Term Governor?, and 30 Main Street. Other shows included Hey Journalist, I Gotcha, in which Palin re-edits interviews to make it look like Katie Couric was "woefully unprepared." Fey had plenty of other fodder: She played a new blonde analyst for CBS' Masters' coverage, claiming to be a former girlfriend of Tiger Woods, as well as a lonely teacher haunted by sexual fantasies of young musical guest Justin Bieber.
