There will be some true grit when Jeff Bridges serves as host. The 2010 Best Actor Oscar winner for Crazy Heart (and a four-time Oscar nominee) first hosted the show back in 1983 with his brother, Beau, but the star of the Coen brothers' forthcoming western, True Grit, is back in the SNL saddle tonight.

As we approach the holidays, with the TV year winding down (if only briefly), it's typically the time to look back — and so it is with a flurry of awards nominations and best-of-year lists raining down.
My own top-10 (and then some) list of shows and networks that made 2010 memorable can be found here. I also had the honor once again to participate on the American Film Institute's TV jury to select a list of 10 top programs of the year. You can do your own comparison to see how these lists differ.
