    Zach is back.


    :
    "Zach Galifianakis returns for his second time as host on March 12. Galifianakis just finished filming "The Hangover 2," due out later this year and is a follow-up to the hit box office feature film, "The Hangover.". Galifianakis currently stars in the HBO series "Bored to Death" and last appeared in the feature film "Due Date," alongside Robert Downey Jr.

    Making her first SNL and U.S. television appearance, Jessie J's debut album, "Who You Are," due out April 12, has already spun two hit singles. Her global single, "Price Tag," featuring rapper B.o.B, became Jessie J's first number-one single on the UK Singles Charts. Jessie J recently won the prestigious Critic's Choice Award and BBC Sound Award at The 2011 BRIT Awards."

    Well, this confirms what that deleted Google News article more or less confirmed. Now, as for that Timberlake/Gaga show in May...

    Before anyone asks who Jessie J. is, please read the first post in this thread. She's never been on American TV before.

    I looked her up on Wikipedia. She's pretty big in the UK, and I guess the show's expecting her to become popular here. They've done it in the past, with some of the acts indeed becoming big in the United States (James Blunt) and other not so much (Ms. Dynamite).

    I watch a bit of British shows (via YouTube), and I am trying to remember if I ever heard of her or saw her on something.


    Was she the one on the Grammys who took over Rihanna's part in Love The Way You Lie?

    After watching her music vids, to me she seems like a crazy British Nicki Minaj.

    Or a slightly more sober Ke$ha.

    I didn't like Zach's Last Show but I'll give him the Benefit of the Doubt.

    I'm excited. His monologue killed last year. Hopefully they'll let him be more of the spotlight this year. So, that article said Elton and Zach were hosting before anybody else, so I think we can count on Helen Mirren and JT + Lady Gaga in the future?

    Timberlake/Gaga would be a triumphant end to a very strong season.

    Maybe The 2nd to last episode but not the last Episode. We would just get what we've seen everytime Timberlake Hosted: Dancing Mascots, Mother Lovers, The Barry Gibb Talk Show, and A Few Others.

    I would perfer:
    Natalie Portman (Thor)
    Ed Helms (Hangover 2)
    Cameron Diaz (Bad Teacher)
    Shia LaBeouf (Transformers 3)

    Dancing Mascott usually changes the style everytime, and MotherLovers was a one time thing.... the other time it was a Special Box. Same characters, but COMPLETELY different story line. I think it'd be a great way to end the season.

    Cameron Diaz is not usually a great host/episode.

    I think her first stint in Year 24 was great (it had Jingleheimer Junction, after all), though her other two episodes were just average.

    Plus, she proved that two 50-year-old, paunchy Festrunk brothers still had a way with the ladies.

    Natalie would be great with promoting all gazillion movies she has in release in the year of 2011 but I believe she'll be very pregnant.

    Good Point, I Mean you can't expect every host to be as good as "DeNiro"

    Nitpicking:
    Jim Nantz doesn't host Selection Sunday. He'll contribute from Indianapolis tomorrow, where he is calling the Big Ten championship.

    Dick Vitale doesn't work for CBS. He's on ESPN.

    Other than that, good sketch.

    I missed the first 30 seconds or more of the show because of a commercial running over. Chicago area here.
