Saturday is a new episode of Saturday Night Live on NBC at 11:29/10:29c. Tonight’s ep is hosted by Tracy Morgan and Kelly Clarkson performs.
Tonight is also the season premiere of The Graham Norton Show on BBC America at 10/9c.
Finally, tonight is an 87-minute special on HBO called Will Ferrell: You’re Welcome America. A Final Night with George W. Bush. Superstar comedian/actor Will Ferrell stars in his first HBO special, a live, 90-minute performance of his limited-run Broadway show, You’re Welcome America. A Final Night with George W Bush. In the special, Ferrell will inhabit one of his favorite political characters from Saturday Night Live, President George W. Bush, assuming the guises of several “Ws” through the years, including the “cowboy” Bush, the “flight suit” Bush, and the (plain old) “suit” Bush. Along the way, Ferrell-as-Bush provides insights into the Bush’s childhood, his time at Yale, his stint as a major-league baseball co-owner, his emergence as a political figure, and his cherished if checkered tenure in and (frequently) out of the White House.
