(CBS) Will "Saturday Night Live" get Tebowed? According to a new report, "SNL" producers want Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow to host an upcoming episode.

A source told, "SNL realizes it would be HUGE ratings and they are hoping he will say yes. Tim just can't and won't be able to do it while the season is still in play."

The 24-year-old NFL star, known for his strong Christian beliefs, was recently parodied in an "SNL" sketch, much to the dismay of some Christian groups who spoke out against it. In the segment, Taran Killam portrayed Tebow, while Jason Sudeikis, playing Jesus, showed up in the locker room to rally the team.
