We love Tina Fey's parody of Alaska Governor Sarah "Jessica" (because she's so stylish) Palin but evidently even she doesn't know the next time she will apear on NBC's "Saturday Night Live" to parody the Vice Presidential candidate. As of today, yeah it's Tuesday, Fey and NBC stated that they didn't know if Fey-Palin would be on either (or both?) "Saturday Night Live Weekend Update Thursdays" or the regularly scheduled "Saturday Night Live". As Public Enemy said: please oh please oh please, just give me one more hit.

Dunno why, but the 10pm slot is blowing up tonight on cable. The TV Junkie Plan: "House", "Frontline", "The Shield", Conan.

Not enough vid for you? Word has it that Joost now has over 8,000 hours of programming, most of it professionally produced on its all Flash website.
