Justin Timberlake is the host and musical guest.
I gather that many SNL greats like Steve Martin, Dan Ackroyd and Chevy Chase will also make an appearance. Is it too much to hope that we'll get Two Wild And Crazy Guys?
Whatever happens this will be the highest rated SNL for this season and might help NBC pull ahead of Univision.

I haven't watched SNL since the last time JT was on (so if he played a character named "Stefon," you'll get to have a huge GOTCHA! moment with me, but I don't care).

Stefon is Lorne Michael's latest homo-hate character. He hates minorities and fags. "It's Pat"; the ambiguously gay duo; Dana Carvey's "Effeminate heterosexual"; the girl with no gaydar... and on and on. None of them are ever positive portrayals.
His girl friday Tina Fey was particular virulent, one of those narcissists who think all the guys who don't want her are queer.
I bet Lorne was the brat in school who gave everyone mean nicknames.

There's supposed to be some sort of irony about Maine Justice featuring Cajuns from Louisiana. The irony is lost on everybody because the premise is stupid. And the irony is not apparent to the audience in the process.

Kevin Hart was much better. Timberlake is just doing the same recycled shit he's done on every other SNL.

Love how people treat Timberskank like he's a great artist instead of the corporate media creation that he is. He's barely a notch above that talentless other Justin and yet gets treated like he's Paul McCartney. Amazing.
But then we live in a world where Kim Kardashian can become a one-person conglomerate simply for getting banged on tape by a Z-list celebrity, so what else is new.

Correction r4! Justina has been nominated twice for SNL but won only one Emmy. Don’t give the little overrated fucker too much credit. I think he’s a slightly more talented Vanilla Ice for the new millennium; some little punk-ass closeted white boy who wants to be like the black punk rappers he hangs with and probably gets gang-banged by.

The dating game was fun and, as always, all the homoerotic interaction involving JT, Sandberg, Bill Hader, Seth Mayer, or that new young kid who's always getting naked, are always welcome. Hell, even Bobby Moynihan was looking good (he's talented and funny). And I'd still do Aykroyd.
My only complaint is that tired 5 club. I haven't seen so many wrinkles and white hair in one room since the last State of the Union.
