Brooke Burke and Chris Harrison host, and the judges include Joy Behar, Dancing with the Stars pro Tony Dovolani, Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry and country crooner Marc Wills. The lucky young woman who walks off with the title will be the 90th winner. — Jennifer Sankowski

NFL Playoff

A divisional doubleheader begins with the year's third meeting of the Ravens and the Steelers in an AFC war in Pittsburgh. Baltimore already has a win this season at Heinz Field, but the Steelers also have a win in Baltimore. Don't expect anyone to come out of this one with a clean uniform. Game 2, which airs in prime time on Fox, is an NFC matchup of the very hot Packers and the top seed Falcons in Atlanta. The Pack stopped Michael Vick and the Eagles last week 21-16, adding a new dimension to their offensive repertoire with the running of rookie back James Starks, who gashed the Birds for 123 yards. — Dave Roeder

Gwyneth Paltrow tries to hit all the right notes when she hosts the second live episode of 2011. The Oscar-winning star of 1998's Shakespeare in Love, who's already showcased her singing chops in 2000's Duets, gets in tune again in the recently released Country Strong, in which she portrays a damaged country-music star trying to resurrect her career. Tonight Paltrow joins forces with the super troupers of SNL to rip today's headlines and newsmakers. She also welcomes music guest Cee Lo Green, with whom she shares a connection: Paltrow covered a Cee Lo song in a November guest appearance on Glee, and the two have reportedly sparked a friendship. Will they team up for a duet tonight? — Dean Maurer
