Plenty of New Yorkers have hosted "Saturday Night Live," but one of our most famous residents, Mayor Bloomberg, has never had the honor. So does the mayor mind he's never gotten the invite? The issue came up Tuesday while the mayor was at 30 Rock to talk about some new jobs in the media and entertainment industry. Melissa Russo reports.

"Saturday Night Live" actor Seth Meyers apparently thinks Mayor  Bloomberg's Spanish is pretty funny.

Meyers appeared with the mayor on the "SNL" stage Tuesday for an announcement about the city's media and entertainment industry.

When Bloomberg repeated his main points in Spanish, as he usually does, Meyers was behind him grinning broadly.

Meyers says Bloomberg's Spanish summary was the "highlight" of the event for him. He jokes he "completely zoned out" while Bloomberg was speaking in English.

Bloomberg has studied Spanish for years but speaks with an inelegant accent. He says the impersonation of him done on the NBC show by Fred Armisen is "brilliant."
