Justin Timberlake to host "Saturday Night Live", 11:25pm - Saturday, NBC
Weekend EditionWe're pleased to see a former E! favorite of ours, Aisha Tyler, getting picked by ABC to host a new talk show that will leverage her stand-up and acting skills. No word yet on what time of day the show will air and when it will premiere. Speaking of E!, don't forget to watch "The Soup" tonight which will feature a cameo by Bob Saget.
Wednesday it was News Corp (FOX) announcing a nearly 50% decrease in revenue, today we write about CBS' actually losing $55 million in the first quarter of this year, compared to a profit of almost $250 million the year before.
There's some good late night TV tonight; Saturday's programming is weak weak weak but Justin Timberlake is back on "SNL" which could mean that there's another "Dick In a Box" in the works.

The TV Junkie Plan: Tonight - "The News Hour", "Real Time With Bill Maher", "Dollhouse", "The Soup", Letterman, Kimmel. Saturday - "SNL". Sunday - "Storm Stories", "The Tudors", "Breaking Bad"
