NEW YORK (NY) — Norm Macdonald is returning to the news, specifically sports news.

The former “Saturday Night Live” comedian and “Weekend Update” anchor will star in “Sports Show with Norm Macdonald.” Comedy Central announced Wednesday that it’s picking up the series and ordering eight episodes.

The network said the show will feature Macdonald’s “comedic take on the most topical and controversial stories from the sports world.”

The show will be taped in front of a live studio audience. It’s set to premiere in April.
