Her name is Gilly, and she's at it again!

The Hollywood Reporter tells us there will be trouble for Christmas this year, as Kristen Wiig's ruckus-causing schoolgirl character Gilly from 'Saturday Night Live' will host her very own Christmas special.

The Hollywood Reporter tells us there will be trouble for Christmas this year, as Kristen Wiig's ruckus-causing schoolgirl character Gilly from 'Saturday Night Live' will host her very own Christmas special. 'SNL Presents: A Very Gilly Christmas,' which will be the first two-hour 'SNL' special since 2002, will air on Thursday, December 17 at 8PM on NBC.

'A Very Gilly Christmas' will feature new sketches starring Gilly, as well as some classic 'SNL' holiday skits. Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin will make guest appearances and introduce some of their own 'SNL' holiday sketches, including Baldwin's "NPR's Delicious Dish and the Schweddy Balls" and Martin's "A Holiday Wish."

The question is, though: How much is too much Kristen Wiig? She's been showing up all over the place lately. In the past few years, she's appeared in 'Whip It,' 'Adventureland,' 'Extract,' 'Ghost Town,' 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall' and 'Semi-Pro.' She's also made appearances on 'Bored to Death' and 'The Flight of the Conchords' and provided a character voice in 'Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs.'

Kristen Wiig has also become something of the "new Will Ferrell" on 'Saturday Night Live,' in that the writers and producers are often rather desperately putting her front and center as the "audience favorite" to the point where they might as well rename the show 'The Kirsten Wiig Comedy Jamboree' or something.

So, have we now officially reached the "Too Much Kristen Wiig" mark with her getting her own two-hour 'SNL' special?
