News of the Day: Joel McHale to Host White House Correspondents' Dinner
- -

According to Chicago Tribune, actor and comedian Joel McHale will be the featured performer and host of the annual White House Correspondents' Association Dinner. The event will be attended by members of the media, celebrities, and the U.S. president.

McHale is the star of NBC's comedy "Community" and is the host of E! network's "The Soup." "He's sharp, funny, and just the type of comic who can navigate the unique challenge of our dinner, making fun of Democrats, Republicans and especially the news media," WHCA President and McClatchy Co political editor Steven Thomma said in a statement.

In a Twitter post after the announcement, McHale said: "My material will be equally offensive to all & over within 30 min - just like a Congressional work year."

Just announced via Yvette Nicole Brown's Twitter, Community will return Thursday, February 7, at 8 p.m., taking over for 30 Rock when it ends in January.

The return may not be as soon as we'd hoped, but at least Community will be back in its old timeslot. Instead of Fridays. Or just canceled.

Poor Community can't catch a break -- it's not canceled yet, but NBC has fired the creator, moved it to Friday, delayed the premiere indefinitely, and recently snubbed it for an open Wednesday slot.

Never fear, fans of Greendale! The cast has filmed this cheeky video update to assure us class is still in session. Someday.
