For many years, this week's guest for The Weekly Guide was probably part of your weekend routine. Julia Sweeney was a regular on Saturday Night Live in the '90s. After leaving the show, she hit the theater circuit with performances like her one woman show – God Said Ha!

At the moment she’s less about the stage and more all over the page. Sweeney is working on a book and a screenplay from her home in Wilmette. So what does a self-proclaimed homebody do on the weekends? Host Alison Cuddy found out when she spoke to the multi-faceted Sweeney during the latest installment of The Weekly Guide.
