NBA All-Star Saturday Night
8:30 pm/ET TNT
Before you see the fan-selected, all-around best of the best in tomorrow's All-Star Game, check out some of the best of various aspects of the game. Individual and team events include the skills challenge and shooting stars competition. Also, Toronto's Jason Kapono looks to three-peat in the three-point shootout against such long-shot specialists as Rashard Lewis of the Magic and Roger Mason of the Spurs. And Dwight Howard, take note: the slam dunk title has not been successfully defended since Jason Richardson won back-to-back in 2002-03. And he was the first since some guy named Jordan did it in 1987-88.

Days before Andy Samberg's Lonely Island debut album, Incredibad, hits shelves on Tuesday, the boys behind SNL 's digital shorts released their new single "I'm On a Boat" as a digital short on Saturday Night Live. The clip features Samberg and pal Akiva Schaffer as they hit the open waters for a nautical joyride alongside hip-hop artist T-Pain. Brace yourselves, because they've brought their swim trunks and "flippy-floppies." Oh, the things you find in the bottom of a cereal box.

Alec Baldwin, Joe Jonas
You've gotta love this one-two punch.
The Feb. 14 edition of Saturday Night Live will welcome 30 Rock star Alec Baldwin back to Studio 8H for a 14th time, while serving as musical guest will be those supremely coiffed teen heartthrobs, the Jonas Brothers.
Baldwin last hosted SNL in November 2006, with Christina Aguilera's considerable pipes as back-up. At this time, if it unclear if he will be lugging his Schwetty Balls ...
NBC entertainment co-chair Ben Silverman is pursuing other partnerships like the one that turned a recurring Saturday Night Live character into a Super Bowl pitchman for Pepsi.
Of detractors who claim the Peacock blurred the line between programming and advertising with such a deal, Silverman contends, "Those are the same people who will be out of business" if they do not adapt during this difficult economy. He also tells TVGuide.com that NBC is in talks with other potential partners about "finding [similar] ways to use our entertainment vehicles to help their brands."
The spots, which premiered on the eve of the Super Bowl (during SNL commercial breaks), show Will Forte's MacGruber ...

Senior editors Matt Mitovich, Mickey O'Connor and Tim Molloy answer your questions. Drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
House is my favorite show, but I am getting sick of this season's Thirteen-centered storylines. When will we see more of Wilson, who has been woefully underused? — Gillian
MATT: Personally, I'm (Olivia) Wilde for Thirteen, partly because her portrayer gives great quotes on the red carpet (and, ahem, is definitely not chilly). But I hear your woe, and can promise that Robert Sean Leonard has meaty stuff coming up later this season, only some of which has to do with Wilson's long-lost brother. Also, for what it's worth (and as hinted at this week), we'll also be spending a bit more time with Peter Jacobson's Taub.
I hear that either Hayden Panettiere or Ali Larter wants to be released from her Heroes contract. Is this true? — Brian
TIM: One of the key Heroes dies at the end of this volume, so that would be an easy out. But Larter ...

CSI, 24, American Idol
TV came roaring back this week, with a brand-new American Idol and the start of 24. They were both entertaining and everything, but did everybody catch that flat-out miracle in New York City? Or two rather high-profile goodbyes? Relive and discuss them all in our Top Moments.

Neil Patrick Harris
Looking to continue the funny in the new year (Tina Fey is so 2008), Saturday Night Live has tapped the one and only Neil Patrick Harris as host for its first 2009 broadcast.
The How I Met Your Mother star will make his debut on the late-night sketch series this Saturday, Jan. 10, with musical guest ...
