    Of, 500 Days of Summer. The name did sound somewhat familiar.

    Technically, Tommy was the senior intelligence officer, assigned to the body of an angsty 15-year-old.

    What's more mind-boggling to me is that at this point SNL knew they couldn't book a big name, so why wouldn't NBC come in and at least get someone to promote their shows? I'm not a Joel McHale fan, but it seems like he could work, or Christopher Meloni, who seems like he's one of the few people on a hardcore drama that wouldn't mind making fun of himself in some ridiculous sketches.

    Some actors just won't do live TV, or aren't confidant about the format. Christina Applegate and Kate Winslet were nervous wrecks when they hosted.

    In what's becoming a tradition of the SNL host appearing on Fallon, Joseph Gordon-Levitt is on the Friday show.

    Just like when they appeared on Tuesday or Wednesday when Conan hosted Late Night.

    Wonder if we're going to see a parody of the Palin/Oprah interview as a cold open on Saturday?

    Also, DMB will probably play "You and Me" and "Time Bomb"

    I don't think we would, at least not with Tina Fey as Palin. I think she said that she'd be through with the impression after the election.

    Tina won't do it because she don't want to remembered as the "Palin lady". I hope they will do a skit, maybe with Jenny as Palin and Nasim as Oprah because I would like to see them both starring a skit. Also Mayas last returns were pretty boring an I never really enjoyed her Oprah impression.

    Plus, Maya's pregnant again, so it's not like she's readily available.

    One of the latest promos where Fred mentions Joseph's name has me wondering if the "Three Names" skit from the Neil Patrick Harris episode is going to be reprised...

    We can only hope not. They've probably already run out of triple-named celebs.

    I was so impressed with the monologue. Wow, he is an incredible dancer. The running up the wall bit was so cool. He either has had amazing training, or great natural ability.

    You mean when Hugh Laurie hosted last year? Will, Suds, Wiigy, Casey, and Hugh.

    Thanks. I was trying to remember if Abby was in it or not, because I remember that character's expressions, and Abby's were dead on.
