Saturday Night Live
Leave it to Weaver: Actress Sigourney Weaver, who has scored Oscar nominations for her work in the films Aliens, Working Girl and Gorillas in the Mist, headlines the show as the host. Weaver is currently queen of the world, appearing in James Cameron's visually stunning box-office titan Avatar. (Cameron also directed Weaver in the 1986 space odyssey Aliens.) Weaver blasts off tonight, helping the SNL players rip into the week's newsworthy events — and perhaps even throw some satirical zingers at Avatar itself. The English pop duo the Ting Tings deliver music performances.
Read on for previews of the NFL Playoff, House of Bones, Pit Boss and The Troop.
