Ana Gasteyer talks 'Suburgatory's' Sheila Shay, Chris Parnell, and of course, Schweddy Balls

"Saturday Night Live" star Ana Gasteyer has officially made the transition into sitcom world, starring in one of our favorite new comedies this season, "Suburgatory" -- and she's loving it just as much as we are. "Whenever anyone congratulates me, I'm like 'I just got a present! I don't need congratulations on top of it," Gasteyer told us when Zap2it caught up with her after her KTLA appearance on Wednesday morning.Gasteyer plays Sheila Shay, the epitome of a suburban PTA mother who does a whole lot more controlling than nurturing -- particularly when it comes to her own daughter, Lisa (Allie Grant). "I just find controlling women really funny," Gasteyer tells us. "When I first read the character, I had no idea that Emily [Kapnek, creator] was going to take her as far and as creatively wide as she has."We're looking forward to a fellow "SNL" vet, Chris Parnell, joining the show as Sheila's husband....
