On Saturday Night Live, she parodies stars such as Hillary Clinton, Sharon Osbourne, Paula Abdul, Hilary Duff, Kelly Ripa, Madonna, Avril Lavigne, Sharon Stone, Nancy Grace, Michael Jackson, Dennis Kucinich, Christian Siriano and Dakota Fanning. During her first season on SNL, Poehler was promoted from featured player to full cast member, making her the third person to have ever earned this distinction (after Harry Shearer and Eddie Murphy).

In a TV Guide interview, Fey said that with Poehler co-anchoring, there now is "double the sexual tension."
