Watch Jane Lynch Host ‘The Rachel Maddow Show’


There is a special kind of pop-cultural delight in seeing two celebrities we love together. We felt that thrill several times over last night, when The Rachel Maddow Show returned from a commercial break and we found none other than Jane Lynch sitting in Maddow’s chair. Lynch led the show’s entire “Best New Thing in the World,” about increasing Republican support for same-sex marriage, in which she both pulled off an effective MSNBC anchor impression and recalled an alternate-universe episode of Sue’s Corner. But the greatest part of Lynch’s appearance happened after the camera pulled back and Maddow was still there, and the women finished out the show discussing Barack Obama’s support of gay marriage and how the political struggle for LGBT rights has affected their lives as lesbians. Watch the 10-minute clip after the jump.
