Tonight on the Tube: Repeats, College Basketball, NBA All-Star Skills Competition and Saturday Night Live

Justin TimberlakeTonight NBC is replaying the Justin Timberlake hosted Saturday Night Live, this being the only episode so far to stir up any buzz this season. Granted in was mostly for the “Box” video he did with Andy Samberg. Yet, reading around the web, many people think he is one of the all-time best SNL hosts. What do you think? He is definitely the best in recent years.
