LiLo to mend tarnished career on SNL?

New York: Former jailbird Lindsay Lohan may make her career comeback with a `Saturday Night Live` hosting gig on Dec 4.

Word of the "SNL" possibility comes just a day after Lohan turned up in a well-recieved taped bit on MTV`s "Video Music Awards," in which she poked fun at her own life.

The NBC late-nighter would give Lohan 90 minutes to prove to those who may still care about her career that she is employable after a string of run-ins with the law and rehab stints.

However, "SNL" spokeswoman refused to confirm the report.

"We never comment on upcoming hosts until they`re announced," the New York Daily News quoted her as saying.

Lohan is currently on a strict post-jail program in California that requires four psychotherapy sessions, two addiction counseling sessions and five 12-step meetings every week plus random drug testing twice a week.

Those rules will be lifted on Nov 1, provided she doesn`t mess up before hand.

She`s also being chased by the morning news shows, all eager to land the first post-probation interview.

Lohan previously hosted `SNL` in 2004 and was back again in 2006.

Fresh episodes of "SNL" begin airing Sept. 25 - the show`s 36th season - with Amy Poehler as host and Katy Perry as the musical guest.
